But Clyde suspects that Peter is hiding a secret or two, especially when he and Rani find an empty house where Peter says his home should be.

As the strands of a clever and careful plan come together, can even a Time Lord save Sarah Jane on the day of her arch-enemy's greatest triumph?

THE WEDDING OF SARAH JANE SMITH: PART TWO - by Gareth Roberts
The Doctor joins the battle, as the power of the Pantheon of Discord grows in strength, in the second and concluding part of this week's story, but a deadly trap is waiting for them all. The Doctor makes a spectacular return on the happiest day of Sarah Jane's life, but is he too late to save both his old companion and Earth itself? As the strands of a clever and careful plan draw together, the two friends are separated across different time zones and must fight to save each other. For one, there's a terrible price to pay.

Out of Time
Our unique and comprehensive coverage of classic Torchwood continues in the latest issue, as Out of Time gets the episode guide treatment. The arrival of three ordinary people from the 1950s threw the Torchwood team into more chaos than a herd of Weevils in the season one episode - the stranded individuals’ attempts to adjust to life in the 21st Century affected Jack, Gwen and Owen in ways they never could have predicted…

Our coverage of the trailblazing Children of Earth continues in the latest issue of Torchwood Magazine, as we put the key players on trial.

Indeed, is there such a thing as a ‘right’ decision in such a complex situation? You can join the debate on our Facebook page, or email us your views at torchwood@titanemail.com.

Plus, don’t miss the second part of archivist Andrew Pixley’s exhaustive dissection of Children of Earth. It’s the ultimate survey of 77 long days on the Torchwood set.

Rhys on Earth - Kai Owen
“Rhys just wants to make sure Gwen’s safe, and then go home for a cup of tea!” - Kai Owen
As Gwen’s loving husband Rhys, Kai Owen is the everyman at the heart of Children of Earth. We quiz the actor about his big role in the mini-series in the latest issue of Torchwood Magazine, and find out why Rhys is set to run and run…to find out more about Kai’s charity runs and convention appearances, visit his official website.

New Torchwood fiction
Torchwood Magazine brings you amazing original fiction and comic strip stories in every issue. This time around, Children of Earth writer James Moran gets high with airborne adventure Stakes on a Plane, and unseasonal snowfall heralds the start of an Antarctic adventure for PC Andy and the Torchwood team in David Llewellyn’s I May Be Some Time. Meanwhile, it’s part four of comic adventure Broken, written by Nick Abadzis and illustrated by Paul Grist. Can Captain Jack and his team escape in time?

Plus…
