When a Cardiff hospital is inundated with patients that have fallen into coma-like trances, Torchwood moves in to investigate. They find that the trances were triggered by phone calls, all of which were made from a number that hadn't been active for over thirty years. Determined to find out who's been calling the unfortunate victims, Jack rings the mysterious number two, zero, five, nine nothing. It's a dead line. Until it calls Jack back. He answers and falls into a deep trance. With the help of one of Jack's old girlfriends, eminent neuroscientist Stella Courtney, the team has to race against time to find the source of the infection and save the patients.
Written specially for BBC Radio by Phil Ford, "The Dead Line" stars John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones.
