Below is the official synopsis for Asylum:
When PC Andy Davidson arrests a young girl for shoplifting, he thinks it’s going to be a routine case. That is, until he sees that she is carrying a gun. The girl is soaking wet, covered in mud, and the weapon is like nothing he’s ever seen before. He knows that this is a case for Torchwood...
The team discovers that the girl is called Freda, but can find out nothing else. Yet when she speaks, it’s a strange mix of English and Icelandic, but with a Cardiff accent. While Jack and Ianto check out the girl’s weapon and her blood sample at the Hub, Gwen and PC Andy take Freda to a safe house. But when Jack calls with the results - and Freda goes on the run - PC Andy finds his world turning upside down.
Written specially for BBC Radio by Anita Sullivan, Asylum stars John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones and Tom Price as PC Andy Davidson.
Torchwood: Asylum will be broadcast on BBC Radio Four at 2:15pm and will then be available globally on BBC iPlayer. BBC Audio will release Torchwood: Asylum around the United Kingdom and Ireland for the price of £9.99 on the Eighth of August.
