Review. Torchwood : Serenity by James Moran – Big Finish audio drama

Serenity Plaza is the most exclusive gated community in South Wales. You’d kill to live there. Jack and Ianto have gone undercover as a happily married couple. There are rumours that something’s wrong at Serenity Plaza and they’re determined to investigate. But the problem is that Serenity Plaza is just so rigidly normal.

Suddenly, Jack and Ianto have to confront the problems that normal couples face. Sharing a house together, doing the washing up, entering the residents’ baking contest, and hoping to win the Best Kept Lawn.

Competition is fierce. Because this is Serenity Plaza. And you’d kill to live there.

When I first saw this being made I think I probably squealed. The reality definitely lived up to my expectations. I just adored this audio drama. Jack and Ianto back together again and living together for a investigation. What’s not to like?

Ianto was at his glorious, sarcastic best and it made me laugh out loud while I was listening (luckily in my kitchen not out and about). The interactions between Jack and Ianto were spot on and its clear both actors enjoyed reprising their respective roles.

If I was being really picky I’d say the actual alien plot line was a little this, but that really wan’t the point of this story.

Thoroughly enjoyable and I’ll certainly be listening to it again.
