New Girl was the first audio story in Before the Fall.

Publisher's summary Edit

"They've been coming to us for years. And we’ve been kept in the dark. My name's Rachel Allan. And I’m Torchwood"

It's Rachel Allan's first day at Torchwood. Torchwood only takes the brightest and the best – and Rachel’s wondering if Yvonne Hartman’s made a terrible mistake in picking her.

Plunged into a world of alien invasions and office politics, Rachel's desperate to fit in. For one thing, she really wants this job. And, for another, she knows what happens at Torchwood if you fail.
