Torchwood: The Lost Files was a banner under which three Torchwood radio dramas produced by the BBC were collected.
Although promoted as taking place prior to series 3, this was only true of the first two. The last one actually took place between series 3 and 4.
The House of the Dead was the third in the Torchwood: The Lost Files mini-series. It aired the week after Series 4 started airing on Starz. To date, it is the last radio drama of Torchwood to be broadcast.
This audio featured the conclusion of a significant conflict: the permanent closing of the Cardiff Space-Time Rift, which had been the main concern of Torchwood Three's operations for Series 1 and 2. Uniquely, such a major plot point would normally be reserved for televised closure, but considering the events of Miracle Day do not cite the Rift as active anymore, the matter can be considered resolved. It also marked the final chronological appearance of Ianto Jones, occurring six months after his death. Ianto was brought back to life, only to give it up again for the sake of his lover's survival. This gave Jack Harkness a chance to make peace with his partner, but the emotional weight of it would be the final push that led him to depart from Earth.
