"Apologies to any of you trying to get on the site. The popularity of our Torchwood announcement has taken us a little by surprise and the vast, unprecedented number of visitors to our site is causing us some problems. We thought we were prepared. How could we have underestimated the great power of Torchwood?"
"You'll be pleased to know it's a bit of a hybrid - a mix of narration and full performance scenes, plus a couple of special extra touches. It's going to be a lot of fun!"
"The great thing is, this is just the start for Torchwood. We have the whole toy box to play with, and we share the continuity from the previous books, comics and audio plays, not to mention the tv series. You can be sure we're looking ahead at with lots of new ideas past these first 6 plays."
