...until Torchwood: The Lost Files air on BBC Radio 4. You may have seen the write-up in the Radio Times declaring that "These three new plays on Radio 4 offer up some crucial information - hence the Lost Files name - that will leave Ianto fans reeling. Wednesday's episode in particular must not be missed. Jack (John Barrowman) and Ianto are at the most haunted pub in Wales when a seance opens up the Rift. This time, its effect is heartbreaking.". And producer/director Kate McAll reveals in a BBC blog that "Oh, and there's a very special surprise for Ianto fans in one of them!"

The plays will be available as podcasts too, and the CD set will be available to buy from 8th September 2011.

Gareth has written an Ianto Jones comic strip adventure, Shrouded', for the official Torchwood magazine - look out for part one (of two) in issue 21, due out in the UK on 15th April 2010 (11th May in the US).

The story sees Ianto struggling with his feelings for Jack and dealing with a visit from a familiar face from the future. Gareth says "I feel I know this character implicitly.

The mag also has an interview with Gareth and some great pics.

Third Out Of Fifty Ain't Bad!

Captain Jack's on top again... but only just! Ianto Jones ranked 3rd in AfterElton's poll of the Top 50 Gay Characters of All Time, and in their words "played to perfection by the man with three first names, Gareth David-Lloyd."

A thank you to you all

I want to say thank you to everyone who's supported me throughout my time on Torchwood, and especially to everyone who's sent encouraging messages to me here in the last few days.

Torchwood: Children Of Earth was an amazing piece of TV. I got an exit I can be proud of, a job I really enjoyed over the past few years and I'd be honoured to work with anyone from the cast and the production side again on other projects in the future.

Ianto changed and grew a lot over the three seasons and your support was part of what made that possible. I'm looking forward to new projects and to meeting many of you at gigs and other events in the future. Keep watching!

Many thanks to all our caption competition entrants - you tickled our ribs and made our mailbox bulge. There were so many good entries, lots of which were far too naughty to put on an all-ages website. Okay, fess up, have you been taking lessons from Gareth?

So after much deliberation here is the winner with two other honourable mentions, which also represent the trains of thought of a lot of other entrants:


  "I know, I can't believe Captain John preferred poodles either!"
  - Mags

Honourable mentions (but sadly no prizes):

Series 3 Spoiler: Ianto Gains a New Love Interest... - Megan Atchley

Youtube was bad enough, but once word had gotten out about John Barrowman's dogs appearing in OK magazine, Gareth was well and truly in the doghouse. - Marie O'Neill

And the winner of the random prize draw for all entrants is Kellie Shuttleworth.

Congratulations to Mags and Kellie - your signed calendars will be winging their way to you (or, in Mags' case, the other person she nominated) as soon as possible.

Kiss Kiss (not Bang Bang)

Gareth (and John Barrowman, who had something to do with it too) has won the AfterElton/NewNextNow Award for Hottest Gay Kiss, for the smooch in season two Torchwood's To The Last Man. The award was voted for by readers of the website last month.

The call of Gareth

Gareth will be signing copies of his new audio book The Call of Cthulhu at Nostalgia and Comics in Birmingham and Forbidden Planet in Cardiff on Saturday 28th June.

The Birmingham signing is from 11am to 1pm on the 28th and the Cardiff one from 4pm to 6pm the same day. Copies of The Call of Cthulhu (and his previous audio book) will be available for purchase at the stores.

Gareth Hot - It's Official

Gareth has come in at number 11 in AfterElton.com's influential poll of the Hot 100 Men of 2008.

The poll is voted for by gay and bisexual men, mainly in the US but also around the globe and shows the impact that Gareth's performance as Ianto in Torchwood is having. Fellow Torchwood star John Barrowman was number 2 - he came in behind Jake Gyllenhaal (and we're sure you can imagine the comment he made about that).

Gareth said of the result "I'm delighted to be bringing so many people pleasure in whatever way I can. I understand I'm underneath John Barrowman, which seems to happen quite a lot. Maybe, next year, Ianto can be on top."

Gareth is looking forward, more than ever now, to meeting his US fans at Comic Con in San Diego and DragonCon in Atlanta this summer, and his Canadian fans at Polaris in Toronto.

The AfterElton/NewNowNext award for Hottest Gay Kiss, which Ianto/Jack's kiss in To The Last Man is shortlisted for, will be announced next weekend - we're keeping our fingers crossed!

The latest in Torchwood

There's an interview with Gareth in Issue #5 of the Torchwood Official Magazine, due out on May 15th in the UK.

You can also pick up Torchwood series 2 on DVD; the box set will be available for sale in the UK on June 30th.

Gareth reads Lovecraft

Audiobook fans, this one's for you: Fantom Films, who previously featured Gareth's voice talents on a set of M.R. James audiobooks, have now tapped him to read H.P. Lovecraft. The collected short stories will be released in two volumes; volume one, available in June, will include Gareth's readings of "The Loved Dead" and "The Nameless City;" in volume two, available in July, he tackles "The Call of Cthulhu."

The discs also include readings by Staten Eliot and Ian Fairbairn, and are available to pre-order from Fantom Films; pre-orders of both volumes will also receive the Cult Conversations CD, which includes an audio interview with Gareth.

You can hear a sample audio clip of Gareth's reading of "The Loved Dead" at Fantom Films; clips from Gareth's readings of other audiobooks, and links to ordering information, are available on our audio page.

Help Keep The Point Alive!

Keep The Point Alive!

Some of you may have been to The Point in Cardiff Bay - perhaps you were there to see Gareth in July and November 2007, or maybe you are going along to Sex, Wales & Anarchy on 20th April. Well, this live music venue - a gothic-style ex-church built in 1900 - is under threat of closure due to impending court action by the Council over complaints about noise from some of their new neighbours.

Gareth would like people to help save The Point because there really aren't enough live music venues in Cardiff, and he enjoys playing there himself. And let's face it, The Point has been operating as a live music venue since 2003, well before the 'neighbours' moved in!

So if you would like to help keep The Point alive, please go to www.keepthepointalive.com and sign the online petition. For more info about The Point, check out their website or MySpace page.

Torchwood Radio Play This Summer

Gareth will be lending his voice to a Torchwood radio play to be aired on BBC Radio 4 this summer; we should have a bit more news on this soon, but in the meantime you can read a short article about the play on Digital Spy.
