Torchwood (pronounced /ˈtɔrtʃwʊd/) is a British science fiction television programme, created by Russell T Davies. It deals with the machinations and activities of the Cardiff branch of the fictional Torchwood Institute, which deals mainly with incidents involving extraterrestrials. .An initial 13-part series was commissioned by the BBC as a spin-off from the 2005 revival of the long-running science fiction programme Doctor Who with which it is closely interlinked.^ The BBC wants Torchwood to last as long as the classic series of Doctor Who.

Gorman and Mori left the programme after the second series, with Kai Owen promoted from a recurring role to the main cast in series 3.
The programme is produced in-house by BBC Wales. .The Head of Drama at the time of the first season, Julie Gardner, served as executive producer alongside Davies.^ I think the producers have enough story sense to have Gwen already delivered the baby and experience the first months of being a new mother before Season 4 starts.

Overview

.Before the revival of Doctor Who, Russell T Davies began to develop an idea for a science-fiction/crime drama in the style of American dramas like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.^ Much like with Doctor Who itself.
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ It really does, but Russel T Davis is choosing not to look at it that way and instead chooses to belittle the fans and tell them they are all little babies who don't understand "Drama" .
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ Could someone prove a link to this idea that Jack will be in "Doctor Who"?
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[9][10] This idea, originally titled Excalibur, was abandoned until 2005, when BBC Three Controller Stuart Murphy invited Davies to develop a post-watershed science-fiction series for the channel.[10] .During the production of the 2005 series of Doctor Who, the word "Torchwood" (an anagram of "Doctor Who") had been used as a title ruse for the series while filming its first few episodes and on the 'rushes' tapes to ensure they were not intercepted.^ Doctor Who episodes in which he was the writer for the story .

[11] .Davies connected the word "Torchwood" to his earlier Excalibur idea and decided to make the series a Doctor Who spin-off.^ This is not torchwood as we have seen in Doctor Who.

^ I hate what they've done with his character, and to make it worse they pushed Ianto back to where he was in early series 1 and then killed him off in a most contrived and stupid scenario.
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[10] Subsequently, the word "Torchwood" was seeded in Doctor Who episodes and other media which aired in 2005 and 2006.
.The series is set in Cardiff and follows the Welsh branch of a covert agency called the Torchwood Institute which investigates extraterrestrial incidents on Earth and scavenges alien technology for its own use (its origins are outlined in the Doctor Who episode "Tooth and Claw").^ Doctor Who episodes in which he was the writer for the story .

.To paraphrase Torchwood Three's commander-in-chief, Captain Jack Harkness, the organisation is separate from the government, outside the police, and beyond the United Nations.^ Torchwood was not "The Captain Jack Show", tho it was certainly created to give fans their regular serving of Barrowman.

The main writer alongside Davies was Chris Chibnall, creator of the BBC light drama show Born and Bred. .Other writers include P.J. Hammond, Toby Whithouse, Doctor Who script editor Helen Raynor, Cath Tregenna, and Doctor Who cast member Noel Clarke, who gained acclaim for his screenplay for the film Kidulthood.^ Doctor Who episodes in which he was the writer for the story .

[12][13]
In a 17 October 2005 announcement, Stuart Murphy described Torchwood as "sinister and psychological...As well as being very British and modern and real." Davies further described it as "a British sci-fi paranoid thriller, a cop show with a sense of humour. [...] Dark, wild and sexy, it's The X-Files meets This Life."[14][15] Davies later denied ever making this comparison, instead describing the show as "alleyways, rain, the city".[16]
As Torchwood is a post-watershed show — that is, after 9 p.m. — it has more mature content than Doctor Who. Davies told SFX: "We can be a bit more visceral, more violent, and more sexual, if we want to. .Though bear in mind that it's very teenage to indulge yourself in blood and gore, and Torchwood is going to be smarter than that.^ Jack's just going to forget Ianto (even though, in my mind, truly loved him, even more than Estelle).

^ However, having said that it was more torture than torchwood, brilliantly acted, some parts very funny and very poignant, and not 'entertainment'.

But it’s the essential difference between BBC One at 7 pm, and BBC Three at, say, 9 pm. .That says it all — instinctively, every viewer can see the huge difference there."^ There is all to say for the power of creators of tv shows, of music, of arts, of movies , of words.
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[12] .According to Barrowman: "I don't do any nude scenes in series one; they're saving that for the next series!^ These characters were friends and they had an impact on one another, and they're always going to be alive through memories.

  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ Perhaps saving Ianto's death until next series and keeping this one focused on Stephen and Jack's sacrifice would have been the better way to go.

.I don't have a problem with getting my kit off.^ You know, the "Soon we'll have star trek where no one ever dies if we don't kill off EVERY CHARACTER EVER" argument is getting kind of old.

As long as they pay me the right money, I'm ready to get out my cock and balls."[17] .Davies also joked to a BBC Radio Wales interviewer that he was "not allowed" to refer to the programme as "Doctor Who for grown-ups".[18] The first series includes content rarely seen or heard in the Doctor Who franchise, including sex scenes (in episodes such as "Day One" and "Out of Time"), same sex kissing (with the exception of the Doctor Who Series 1 finale where Captain Jack kisses The Doctor), and use of extreme profanity in several episodes.^ Doctor Who episodes in which he was the writer for the story .

.Torchwood, unlike its parent programme, centres on a team instead of a single character and companion(s).^ Just a thought but why did the Master send Torchwood to the Himalayas instead of killing the team.
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

.The show is oriented on Torchwood Three, the Cardiff branch of the Torchwood Institute, tasked (among other things) with keeping an eye on the space/time Rift that runs through the city, and on whatever washes through it.^ Torchwood was introduced as the Gwen and Jack show and I rolled my eyes at Gwen with her Mary-Suesque 'heart' and tried to concentrate on the other characters.
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ For me, one of the great things about Torchwood was the thread of humour running through it - it didn't take itself too seriously, despite the often nastly themes.
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

.Torchwood Three is initially a team of five operatives, led by Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), with Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) as the "new girl" who joins in the first episode and acts as an audience surrogate.^ It should have been called "Gwen Cooper's Torchwood".

.Jones' role within the team is increased in series 2, and after Harper and Sato are killed the distinctions between the different member's roles are far less.^ Maybe this is another place where we agree to disagree (the other being whether the team was relegated to a supporting role in at least the first 3+ days of the series).

.Aside from the team, another major character is Rhys Williams (Kai Owen), Gwen's live-in boyfriend and later husband, who is initially unaware of the nature of Gwen's mysterious new job.^ But Gwen cannot be touched, even Rhys was brought back to from the dead despite the concept of it making no sense (not complaining too much though as I adore his character).

After learning about Torchwood in series 2 episode "Meat", his role in the programme increases and he joins the main cast in series 3. Regularly recurring is PC Andy Davidson (Tom Price), Gwen's former police partner and occasional comic relief.
Prior to the programme's debut, publicity materials featured Indira Varma as Suzie Costello among the regular cast members, giving the impression that she would appear throughout the series. .However, Suzie was killed off at the end of the first episode with Gwen taking her place on the team, reappearing only once more as an antagonist.^ That said, I *DO* hope RTD blows my socks off with the first episode of the new Torchwood and woo's me back, I'm just not counting on it.

Torchwood is filmed and set in Cardiff. The makers of Torchwood deliberately portray Cardiff as a modern urban centre, contrasting with past stereotypical portrayals of Wales.

Roald Dahl Plass, outside the Millennium Centre, acts as the exterior of the Hub.
The team's headquarters, referred to as the Hub, was beneath Roald Dahl Plass in Cardiff Bay — formerly known as the Oval Basin. .This is where the TARDIS landed in the Doctor Who episodes "Boom Town" and "Utopia" to refuel, and is the location of the spacetime rift first seen in "The Unquiet Dead". The Hub itself was around three storeys high, with a large column running through the middle that was an extension of the fountain above; at its base lay the rift machine.^ Doctor Who episodes in which he was the writer for the story .

Critical reception

.As a spin-off of long-running British cultural artifact Doctor Who, Torchwood's launch into British popular culture has received much positive and negative review, commentary and parody following the hype of its inception, especially regarding its status as an "adult" Doctor Who spin-off as well as its characterisation and portrayal of sex.^ This is not torchwood as we have seen in Doctor Who.

Critics described it separately as a "powerful human drama"[60]; "Best. Torchwood. Ever."[61]; and "... against all expectations, a work of Proper Drama".[62] Conversely, The Daily Mirror gave the mini-series a negative review, describing it as "the modern-day Blake's Seven: ludicrous plot, hammy acting, an adolescent penchant for 'Issues'".[63]
.Metacritic, an American review aggregator website, gives Torchwood series one a rating of 74 out of 100, meaning "generally favourable reviews".[64] The show's second series rates higher, at 81 out of 100, indicating "universal acclaim".[65] The third series rated 80, with the highest score being a 91 from Time and the lowest a 60 from The New York Times.^ It was the third series (or season) for an ongoing show.

Ratings

The first episodes of Torchwood on BBC Three gave the channel its highest ever ratings, and the highest ratings of any digital-only non-sports channel at the time with 2.519 million viewers (though this has since been surpassed by Bionic Woman on ITV2 which gained 2.553 million in March 2008 [73]). The audience share was 12.7%, increasing to 13.8% for the second episode (shown immediately after the first episode on the same day), despite viewership dropping to 2.498 million.[74]
.Ratings for later episodes dropped to around 1.1 to 1.2 million viewers during the first showing on BBC Three (the lowest being 0.8 million for week ending 24/12/06), but nevertheless, the show remained the most viewed programme on BBC Three by a wide margin.^ In the first episode, Gwen was supposed to show the rest of the crew how to feel again, including Jack.

Again, initial ratings were respectable and the first episode garnered 4.22 million viewers. However, the series again began to decline and had lost a million viewers by its fourth episode. It later dropped to a low of 2.52 million viewers towards the end of its run [73], even after the BBC had moved it from its usual Wednesday night slot (where it was being consistently beaten by ITV's programming and Channel 4's no.1 series, Grand Designs) to Friday nights.

The first 13-episode series ended with a two-parter on 1 January 2007.

.It will be worked on by the original series' production team, including series creator Russell T Davies.^ Seriously the need for a shag fest remake of other programs needs a serious production team.

Accompanying the main series of Torchwood are a series of novels. .The books are published in paperback-sized hardcover format, the same format BBC Books uses for its New Series Adventures line for Doctor Who.^ Im in the US, and still a long time fan of Torchwood, Doctor Who, and even the Sarah Jane Adventures.

Gwen: Torchwood doesn't do maternity leave - "Sorry Jack, I'd love to deal with those aliens but I can't find a babysitter" or "I'll deal with that bomb once I've dropped Rhys Jr. off at preschool."

Gwen: Ianto, hi. I'm sorry. I didn't realize—
Ianto: Doesn't matter.
Gwen: I wouldn't have come in if I'd known—
.Jack: Always room for one more.^ BUT in that case, it was unfair for the preseason interviews to talk about upcoming positive developments in their relationship, such as the "development of trust" and Jack's becoming more of a "one-man man."

.Ianto: So, one day you'll see me die of old age and just...^ We'll just have to wait and see.

^ Better in my opinion for them simply to say "You'll have to watch and see" instead of playing around with potential scenarios and claims the characters are important.

^ One of this ways is, to see and believe, that there are other people, who our care is worth it, and see how they interact with you.

keep going?
Jack: Yeah...
.Ianto: We'd better make the most of it then.^ I hate what they've done with his character, and to make it worse they pushed Ianto back to where he was in early series 1 and then killed him off in a most contrived and stupid scenario.

Jack: Suppose...
.Ianto: Like right now?^ He had already 3 now in a normal human lifespan (if I count right: Estelle, Alice mother and Ianto) And besides he was not able to say "I love you" in the end...

.Jack: Ianto, the world could be ending.^ There was so much more that could have be done with the Ianto/Jack story line - and seriously - killing his grandkid?
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ After all, Jack could have chosen to leave anyway, because he felt guilt/remorse/etc and left Ianto.

^ If Ianto hadn't died and Jack was still on Earth, 'Children of Earth' would have ended on a note of hope.

Ianto: World's always ending. And I have missed that coat.
Jack: Rhys, do you want to take the car down to those shops by the Wharf? We need some discs for these things. Should take about 20 minutes.
Ianto: [quickly] Thirty.
Jack: 30 minutes.
Rhys: I'll go later; the beans are almost done.
Jack: Beans are almost done.
Ianto: Bloody beans.

Clem: And who's the queer?
Ianto: Oi! [beat] It's not 1965 anymore.
Clem: He's queer. I can smell it.

Day Four

.Gwen: You get to shoot first, and ask questions later.^ If you ask me (and if you don't, so what) Davies is too busy trying to cram Gwen down our throats as the main and only reason to watch Torchwood.

How good is that?

Ianto: I've only just scraped the surface, haven't I?
.Jack: Ianto, that's all there is.^ We didn't see Jack be grateful for all the things Ianto does for him.

^ They should make a 4th series though there is no romance between Captain Jack and Ianto because Ianto is dead, thanks to the '456' alien.

Ianto: No. You pretend that's all there is.

Ianto: [holds up gun] If there's a virus, there must be an anti-virus. Release it now or I'll blow a hole in that tank, and we'll all die together.
.Jack: [Joins Ianto, holds up his gun at the tank] You've made your point now stop this and we can talk!^ Beautiful point you made.
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ My point was that if set in near future then Jack will have to deal with a government that knows about Jack's ineffectiveness in solving problems (to them & Jack himself) Jack got Ianto and the people in Thames House (?!?
  • EXCLUSIVE: Torchwood picked up for another season by BBC - ComicMix news 8 January 2010 9:51 UTC www.comicmix.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

456: You will die. Even now.
[Jack and Ianto shoot at the tank, screaming noise is heard]
Jack: What's that noise? What's it doing? We gotta get you out of here. I can survive anything, but you can't!
Ianto: It's too late. I've breathed the air.
.Jack: [desperate, begins crying] There's gotta be something, there's gotta be an antidote!^ Jack, like the others, will be there to help further her developments (and to be there as she cries).

.Jack: And I take it back, alright?^ To be honest, I don't actually think the writers will take it back to the Gwen/Jack UST - they seemed pretty set on Gwen and Rhys.

[Ianto falls to the ground, and is caught by Jack. He lies in his arms]
Jack: No! No, no, no, no, no. Ianto?
Jack: It's all my fault.
Ianto: No it's not...
.Jack: Don't speak, save your breath.^ And, um, your assumptions about where the Jack/Ianto story arc would have gone if Ianto hadn't died don't seem to be based on any evidence from the show.

456: He will die. And tomorrow your people will deliver the children

Day Five

.Gwen - There's one thing I always wanted to ask Jack.^ There is nothing to say that Jack won't be back, and I believe JB has already cited that he wants to be in it if it returns.

Back in the old days. I wanted to know about that Doctor of his. The man who appears out of nowhere and saves the world; except sometimes he doesn't. All those times in history where there was no sign of him.. I wanted to know why not. But I don't need to ask anymore. I know the answer now: Sometimes the Doctor must look at this planet and turn away in shame.

Torchwood is a British science fiction television programme. It is shown on BBC 2 - a TV channel in Britain. The show is a spin off of the series Doctor Who. Torchwood is about a secret organisation which manages Earth's contact with aliens.

It stars John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness. He played the same character in series one, series three and series 4 of the current Doctor Who (2005). It also stars Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper a policewoman who becomes involved with the group and Gareth David-Lloyd as Ianto Jones a person who helps out in other ways.

The series is set in Cardiff, Glamorgan, Wales. Series 1 takes place after Doctor Who series two. This means it started in 2007 and takes place in early 2008 ahead of when it is actually shown. Series 2 took place inbetween Doctor Who series 3 and series 4. It follows the Wales section of a secret group called the Torchwood Institute. The Torchwood Institute examines things that aliens cause to happen on Earth. They also collect alien equipment to use.

Because the show is set in and around Cardiff, many of the local attractions, for example, the Millennium Center and Cardiff Bay are shown in the series. Country settings around Glamorgan are also used many times in the series.

The programme is aimed at adults and older teenagers.

The third series is a five part long story named Children of Earth.
