When a Cardiff hospital is inundated with patients who have fallen into coma-like trances, Torchwood moves in to investigate in the third part of this brand new series of extra-terrestrial investigations starring John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd.
The trances appear to have been triggered by phone calls, all received on retro phones and made from a number that hasn't been active for more than 30 years.
Determined to find out who's been calling the unfortunate victims, Jack rings the mysterious number – two, zero, five, nine. It seems to be a dead line ... until Jack is called back.
Torchwood: The Dead Line will be broadcast on BBC Radio Four at 2:15pm and will then be available globally on BBC iPlayer. BBC Audio will release Torchwood: The Dead Line around the United Kingdom and Ireland for the price of £9.99 on the Eighth of August.
