Samuel Barnett said: “It’s always a pleasure to record more Torchwood Soho. When we were recording during the COVID-19 pandemic we weren’t able to be in the same room and it felt quite sad, so it’s lovely to be back in the studio all together. It does help that we know each other well and are fond of each other as human beings!”
Joe Shire added: “It’s always great to come back to this part and Sam makes it really easy to act alongside him. The journeys that we go on in each episode and the arcs that these characters go through are so big. It’s a lot of fun and we want to keep Norton and Gideon’s relationship fresh and exciting for the listeners. Gideon has very much grown as a person. He has teeth now and bites back!”
Tom Price said: “It’s nice to see Andy putting his proper Sherlock Holmes boots on – asking questions and working stuff out. As the actor performing those lines, it’s very hard when Andy makes conclusions to not go ‘Yes Andy, you genius!’. It’s been a lot of fun.”
