The latest and final issue of Torchwood Magazine has been released. The official Torchwood Magazine Facebook page posted earlier today: "The final issue of Torchwood Magazine is now on sale. Make sure you get your copy as this is going to be a collector's item!".

In the editorial notes of issue 24 the magazine posted:
"Finally, in less happy news, the next issue of Torchwood magazine will be the last for a while, Everything changes, and with the TV show on its way back as a BBC/Starz co-production, there's a whole new world of merchandising to be worked out, and plenty of new projects in the pipeline. Hopefully, by this time next year, interest in the series will be at an all-time high, and Torchwood magazine will rise again - whether with the same old team or in a whole new guise......"
