    A flu epidemic is spreading through Cardiff whilst a strange corpse is found in the waterIt’s a race against time for the Torchwood team to piece together all the cluesThe story is fast paced as the team try and solve the mystery the characters are also well written It really felt like the show

    45I loved this story Even Owen was great Actually he was awesome here The cases are connected but you get that right in the beginning The problem they are facing here is than serious and it keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end There are a few moments when you think they've beaten it only to realize the fight isn't over It was exhausting in a good way Jack's role is pronounced Toshiko got a moment to shine and as I said Owen wasn't his usual whinny self absorbed selfAnother thing I loved is the humour There is lots of it in Something in the Water and it is a Torchwood kind of humour I'll just select a few examples in spoiler tags They aren't really spoilers but still view spoiler ‘We’d both be dead by now if there were Well you would be’Owen looked at him ‘You’re an inspirational leader Jack Have I ever told you that?’ ‘Gwen and Toshiko have made it through alive’‘Alive?’‘It was a close thing apparently They nearly died of boredom’Owen's dark humour 'Two autopsies in one day Business is good' ‘Y’know I kind of prefer it when the dead stay dead’‘Pot Kettle Black’ Owen said‘Yeah’ agreed Jack with a shrug ‘The difference is I do it with style’ hide spoiler

    Interesting and well done for a tie in book It didn't have enough Ianto for my taste but it was mostly an Owen and Jack book The plot was solid but this is Torchwood you usually don't watch or read for the plot

    The Torchwood crew encounter the folk legend 'The Water Hag' in this one but in true Torchwood style she turns out to be an evil alien laying her spawn in the throats of menSo there's some great 'Alien' style body horror with parasites being vomited up killing their hosts I also like the water hag as an alien she's interesting and hard to defeatCharacters are all on point the voices are right and they all perform their jobs admirably but there's little development back story or emotional interaction this one really is all about the story I like Ianto in this one his cool competence comes across he's always there hovering in the background providing whatever anyone needsIn contrast to the other Torchwood novels this one is very streamlined and focused the majority have multiple plot strands that come together at the end This one has a lightening pace and is really tight everything is connected and there's very little fillerOverall I thoroughly enjoyed this one it's a very uick read and while it doesn't have too much character development it has a nasty alien and a nice level of body horror

    I’d forgotten how grisly Torchwood could be 😬 It’s been a few years since I’ve read a book or watched the show but I remember nowThis was a nice visit back to the characters and with a great story The title was spot on hahaha The characterizations were great and it felt like a real thing that could happen in an episode I’m really glad I wasn’t sick while reading this though as that’s a huge part of the story Sore throat cough etc It may haunt me though the next time I do come down with a cold 😅Descriptions of how some of the people died were uite graphic in a way that surprised me and made me suirm a bit I’d be aware of that if you’re sueamish Also there’s SPOILERS a dog death which I know people are sensitive to so be aware of thatHonestly this was great though and I really enjoyed it Better than the Doctor Who book I read earlier this year

    I had a hard time reading this book It was good but it was also TERRIFYING to me I don't do well with outbreakepidemic stories that involve certain death And that was definitely the entire plot of this story So yeah terrifying People are getting sick There is a water hag causing it And icky disgusting mucus creatures are emerging from the backs of people's throats killing them in an explosion of blood and ick in the process Yeah Terrifying I did like reading about a completely clueless and compromised Torchwood team still somehow managing to go on and do their jobs knowing they were the only people who could stop what was happening And I loved that Owen had a lot of theories and thoughts but it was ultimately Tosh who figured out the key things But it really did take all of them nearly dead at the time to take the water hag down I was SO RELIEVED when she was finally offed The finale was tense and exciting but also and maybe I mentioned this earlier terrifying

    An okay enough book

    If you enjoyed the Torchwood series on TV chances are you will enjoy being able to revisit the Torchwood universe introduced by the Dr Who spinoff

    First in the trio of books released for the start of the second tv series There are a couple of internal references to tell you that it's set between To the last man and Meat but there's nothing that reuires specific knowledge of the show other than the basics of who Torchwood are and what they doreturnreturnBaxendale takes an old British legend and puts a Torchwood spin on it as a water hag causes havoc around Cardiff The book starts with several different strands which have no connection other than stagnant water and for good measure tosses in a flu epidemic that isn't It takes the Torchwood team some time to connect all the clues by which time they're infected as well Much running around chasing or being chased by bad guys ensues making for a plot that offers both thoughtful research by the team and physical mayhem before they manage to close down a major threatreturnreturnExcellent characterisation and I could hear the voices while reading much of the dialogue as Baxendale catches the distinctive speech patterns well There's a decent spread of word count across the characters and good ensemble play between various combinations rather than focusing on only one or two though don't go looking for any overt reference to the relationship between Jack and Ianto because it isn't there Owen gets a fair bit of attention as this is partly a medical mystery and his expertise is directly relevant to one strand of the story Owen's very likeable in doctor mode without entirely losing his nasty edge with his teammates which is the way I like himreturnreturnThere's a lot of good banter and some nice one liners not just for the main characters but for the one offs created for this storyreturnreturnIt's a solid story that makes good use of both the inspiring myth and various uirks of the Torchwood universe This isn't just a generic science fantasy with the right names pasted in but something that's very clearly Torchwood There are some minor disappointments in particular I felt the ending was rather abrupt but overall I thoroughly enjoyed this one I can see why people with different tastes might have found it a bit flat but it happens to hit my buttons rather well
