Torchwood Border Princes

You may be looking for the titular organisation.

Border Princes was the second release in the BBC Torchwood Novels series.

Publisher's summary Edit

The End of the World began on a Thursday night in October, just after eight in the evening...

The Amok is driving people out of their minds, turning them into zombies and causing riots in the streets. A solitary diner leaves a Cardiff restaurant, his mission to protect the Principal leading him to a secret base beneath a water tower. Everyone has a headache; there's something in Davey Morgan's shed; and the church of St Mary-in-the-Dust, demolished in 1840, has reappeared - though it's not due until 2011. Torchwood seem to be out of their depth. What will all this mean for the romance between Torchwood's newest members?

Captain Jack Harkness has something more to worry about: an alarm, an early warning, given to mankind and held - inert - by Torchwood for 108 years. And now it's flashing. Something is coming. Or something is already here.

Characters Edit

References Edit

  • There are two Star Wars references. Gwen tells Jack "...Not to go all Han Solo on her" and Dean Simms, a con-man, hypnotises people using an alien device with the phrase "...These are not the droids you're looking for."
  • The plot element of the group's memories being altered and a "new member" suddenly appearing among them is similar to the plot of the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "Conundrum".

Notes Edit

  • This book is also available as an ebook from the Amazon Kindle store.
  • Events occur in late October 2007.

Continuity Edit

  • The plot element of the group's memories being altered and a "new member" suddenly appearing among them is similar to the plot of TV: Adam.

Audio release Edit

  • The story was released as an audiobook on 3x CD read by Eve Myles.
  • The audiobook is also available as a download from the AudioGo website.
