Colin Colchester-Price (né Price) was the husband of St John Colchester.
Early life Edit
In the 2000s or earlier, (AUDIO: Orr) Colin entered into a relationship with St John Colchester, who he later married on a beach in the rain. (AUDIO: Future Pain) His mother disapproved of the relationship (AUDIO: Aliens & Sex & Chips & Gravy) and did not attend their wedding. (AUDIO: Future Pain) Colin's cousin once sent Colchester a scented candle (AUDIO: Night Watch) and the couple were used to receiving apologies from Colchester's sister Jane, who lived in New Zealand. (AUDIO: Future Pain)
The couple lived together in Colchester's hometown of Hove in a farmhouse, (AUDIO: A Kill to a View) where Colin was comfortable. However, Colchester's work often kept them apart, meaning that Colin sometimes had to go on holiday on his own. (AUDIO: Future Pain) The two had sex in their car on the day that they bought it. (AUDIO: Thoughts and Prayers)
Life in Cardiff Edit
Sorvix occupation Edit
Mr Colchester was assigned to Torchwood Three, necessitating a move to Cardiff. Although Mr Colchester wanted Colin to remain in Hove, Colin insisted on moving with him. (AUDIO: Future Pain) They lived for a time on Davenport Street before moving to Flat 151 of Ritz Tower, a flat that Colin loved. He frequently refused to leave the building due to the rise of hate crimes in the city, but did receive a visit from Rhys Williams who nicknamed them both the "Torchwood Widowers".
Wanting to make friends, Colin agreed to a dinner party with Sandra and Andrea and was joined by the caretaker, Bilis Manger. When Mr Colchester arrived and used their safeword, Sandra and Andrea tried to kill them both and they fled, but Mr Colchester was able to overpower and kill them. His aggression allowed Bilis to open the Rift and send a message (AUDIO: A Kill to a View) to God. (AUDIO: Future Pain) They waited on the roof for a helicopter as Colin had been cut by Sandra. (AUDIO: A Kill to a View)
Colin and Mr Colchester went to the Escape Room with Rhys and Ng, being paired up with the latter. Although he solved most of the puzzles, Escape said that he was weak. On the journey home, Colin asked Mr Colchester how "Gwen" had become so cold as to attempt to sacrifice Mr Colchester for herself and Colin. (AUDIO: Escape Room) To recover from the experience, he went to stay with his sister for a time. (AUDIO: Herald of the Dawn)
Colin was back at Ritz Tower making dinner when Tyler called him and told him of Mr Colchester's death. He was angry that Yvonne would not let him have his husband's body due to Torchwood protocol and that he had to have his funeral without it. The Prices declined to attend the funeral, during which Colin helped fight a plasmic psychovore and was confused when Orr took Jack's form in his presence. Yvonne took him to the Hub to watch Mr Colchester's last message and, in her absence, he also watched N-Space Yvonne's. (AUDIO: Future Pain)
Colin was on Queen Street when a predator shrouded the city in darkness. He stumbled away and called Jack, gathering people to St Martin's for their safety and fleeing with Jack when the mob tried to take his night-vision goggles. Believing that Jack still had the goggles, Colin found the way to Ritz Tower by himself and, once inside, kissed Jack, whereupon Mr Colchester appeared. (AUDIO: See No Evil) Colin believed that Mr Colchester was a ghost or an impostor and hyperventilated before falling asleep because of the Night Sun. Upon waking, he and Mr Colchester decided to kiss to see if he was real, (AUDIO: Night Watch) which it did. (AUDIO: Flight 405)
God and the D.R.C. Edit
Following the Cardiff tsunami, Colin became a vital part of the Disaster Recovery Committee. (AUDIO: A Mother's Son) After Colchester told him about ScrapeJane, he believed in her and was attacked. Ng arrived and saved them both before drugging Colin to neutralise his belief in the monster. (AUDIO: ScrapeJane)
He was trapped in Ritz Tower when it became the city's only source of clean drinking water. He attempted to help Orr, who was suffering from producing the water. (AUDIO: Day Zero) Although Colchester had promised Colin that he would be with him during the end of the world, he was not and was forced to go on the run with the rest of Torchwood without saying goodbye to his husband. (AUDIO: Thoughts and Prayers)
Later life Edit
Colin loved shopping (AUDIO: Changes Everything) and modern interior design. As he was Muslim, he did not drink alcohol and enjoyed doing sudoku after a long, hard day. He was scared by the threat of hate crimes in Cardiff and sometimes refused to leave Ritz Tower out of fear. (AUDIO: A Kill to a View)
