The magazine includes the latest news from the Torchwood set, cast and crew interviews[3], behind-the-scenes features on the show's special effects, regular columns from Torchwood's lead writer Chris Chibnall and producer Richard Stokes, and ten pages of original Torchwood comic strip fiction.[4] Issue 8 saw the introduction of an original piece of short prose every month.
