The 21st century is when it all changes and you’ve got to be ready…
Separate from the government, outside the police, beyond the United Nations: Torchwood sets its own rules. Led by the enigmatic Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), the Torchwood team delves into the unknown and fights the impossible.
Alongside the charismatic Captain Jack is Gwen (Eve Myles). Initially an outsider, her first meeting with the team sparks a burning curiosity to get to the truth, throwing her into an unfamiliar but exciting world. Clear-thinking and instinctive, she understands people and is, at times, the group’s conscience. But can she completely separate herself from her normal life.
The rest of the bold and passionate team is made up of charming medic Owen Harper, young and hedonistic but utterly brilliant; reserved Toshiko Sato who specialises in computers, surveillance and all things technical; the super- intelligent and intense Suzie Costello who has devoted her life to the strange alien artefacts under her control; and Ianto Jones who is far more important that his receptionist’s role suggests.
From an underground base built on a rift in time and space, the team responds to any alien threat – a meteorite crash landing, sightings of extra-terrestrial technology, an unusual autopsy report, the spread of a deadly alien virus.
Part CSI, part X-Files, Torchwood is the team we’d all love to be part of, where excitement comes before morality and the rules are made as you go along…
