• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

A collection of three Torchwood radio plays that premiered in July 2011.

This series contains examples of:

  • Anguished Declaration of Love: Jack when he loses Ianto for a second time in "The House of the Dead".
  • Big Damn Heroes: Rhys of all people in "The Devil and Miss Carew". He uses the computer browser history to track down Gwen and rescue her from the titular character.
  • Dead All Along: Ianto, in "The House of the Dead".
  • Eldritch Abomination:
    • The entity in "The House of the Dead".
    • Also Gwen, again, from "The House of the Dead".
  • Grand Theft Me: The alien in "Submission"
  • Heroic Sacrifice: When the Big Bad of "The House of the Dead" tried to bribe Jack with a living breathing Ianto, he almost took it. Ianto instead blew the Big Bad to kingdom come, sealing the rift and killing himself for a second time.
  • Shout-Out: The title and the name of the submarine in "Submission" shout out to the Sex Pistols. And the episode titled House of the Dead.
  • Spooky Seance: "The House of the Dead".
  • Tomato Surprise: practically everything in "The House of the Dead". The story's taking place after Children of Earth, Ianto's a ghost, and Gwen's an Eldritch Abomination.
