The Devil and Miss Carew

Duration:
45 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 11 July 2011

Martin Jarvis and Juliet Mills join the regular cast for this latest Torchwood adventure by Rupert Laight.

When Rhys's elderly Uncle Bryn has a heart attack while listening to the shipping forecast, it seems like another routine death at Ivyday Nursing Home. But when Rhys and Gwen go to collect the old man's effects, Gwen's suspicions are roused by another elderly resident. The conversation is cut short, though, by a fire alarm, one of many consequences of the mysterious power cuts that are sweeping the nation. Gwen has a hunch that something is wrong and her search leads her to Miss Carew, a suspiciously fit and strong octogenarian who, despite having supposedly terminal heart disease, has left Ivyday and gone back to work at the Computer firm she used to run. Miss Carew has been offered a deal by Fitzroy, a wandering alien with an aversion to electricity who is looking for a home. It's a deal that Miss Carew can't refuse. But the consequences for planet Earth are unthinkable.

Rupert Laight is one of the writers of The Sarah Jane Adventures

Recorded at The Invisible Studios, by Mark Holden and mixed at BBC Wales by Nigel Lewis.

A BBC/Cymru Wales production, directed by Kate McAll.
