Aliens Among Us - REVIEWED

So I have just finished the Aliens Among Us sets for Torchwood: The Story Continues, which is basically the Season Five of the show, and thought I’d gage some general opinions it.

Personally, I thought it was great: the new cast is wonderful and there’s a litany of brilliant stories, although as a season it was incredibly lacking as the main story arc is horrendously written with very little cohesion or logic behind it.

I’ve written full reviews and I’ll link them below but first I’d like to outright rank the stories here:

  • Aliens & Sex & Chips & Gravy by James Goss - 5/10
  • Escape Room by Helen Goldwyn - 5/10
  • Love Rat by Christopher Cooper - 6/10
  • Orr by Juno Dawson - 7/10
  • Herald of the Dawn by James Goss - 7/10
  • Changes Everything by James Goss - 8/10
  • Zero Hour by Jay Harley - 8/10
  • Superiority Complex by AK Benedict - 8/10
  • Tagged by Joseph Lidster - 9/10
  • The Empty Hand by Tim Foley - 9/10
  • A Kill to a View by Mac Rogers - 9/10
  • Poker Face by Tim Foley - 10/10

Overall - 7.6/10

If you’ve listened to them, vote for your favourites here, I’d be interested to see the results:

  • Aliens & Sex & Chips & Gravy by James Goss

Poker Face is my absolute favourite

There’s a sort of sub-genre of Torchwood audios which i like to call the ‘everything goes right for Yvonne’ stories, and while every single one of them is gold, I think Poker Face is my favourite of the lot
