Bay of the Dead was the eleventh release in the BBC Torchwood Novels series.

Publisher's summary[]

When the city sleeps, the dead start to walk…

Something has sealed off Cardiff, and living corpses are stalking the streets, leaving a trail of half-eaten bodies. Animals are butchered. A young couple in their car never reach home. A stolen yacht is brought back to shore, carrying only human remains. And a couple of girls heading back from the pub watch the mysterious drivers of a big black SUV take over a crime scene.

Torchwood have to deal with the intangible barrier surrounding Cardiff, and some unidentified space debris that seems to be regenerating itself. Plus, of course, the all-night zombie horror show.

Not that they really believe in zombies.

  • The title appears to be a reference to Romero's Living Dead movies, most notably Day of the Dead.
  • The dense fog which foreshadows the appearances of zombies in the novel appears to reference the cult horror film The Fog, in which a glowing fog sweeps over a Californian town, bringing with it the vengeful ghosts of mariners killed in a shipwreck 100 years prior.
  • Although it remains unnamed in the book, a reference is made to the film The Incredible Shrinking Man. Reference is also made to The Addams Family.
