Season 1
Available on Prime
4.0 out of 5 stars (1,257) IMDb 7.8/10

Torchwood follows the adventures of a team of investigators, led by the enigmatic Captain Jack Harkness. Set in the modern day UK, the team use scavenged alien technology in the real world to solve crime; both alien and human. They are separate from the government, outside the police and beyond the United Nations. Everyone who works for Torchwood is young, under 35. Some say that's because it's a new science. Others say it's because they die young...

Some SPOILERS here.

TORCHWOOD, a spinoff of DOCTOR WHO, is yet another television show with nifty science-fiction and paranormal elements, and it IS a marvelous and fun show. The premise: the Torchwood Institute is a covert organization given the responsibility of being Great Britain's watchdog against all things malicious and extraterrestrial. This series revolves around the amazing exploits of Torchwood Three, a branch of the Torchwood Institute which operates out of Cardiff, Wales.

In the debut episode "Everything Changes," Policewoman Constable Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) witnesses a deceased stab victim's temporary return to life. This becomes her introduction to a hidden world of frightening monsters, incomprehensible alien technologies, and extreme paranoia. She meets the very charming Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), a man displaced in time and leader of Torchwood Three. Oh, and he can't die. He obligingly places Gwen in the loop: "We don't just catch aliens. We scavenge the stuff they leave behind, find ways of using it, arming the human race against the future." Fairly soon, after some fairly interesting - not to mention, harrowing - moments, Gwen finds herself recruited as the group's police liaison. And with a spacetime rift located in Wales, she and the other Torchwood members remain up to their necks in weirdness and peril. On a more personal scale, Gwen struggles to maintain a normal relationship with her lived-in boyfriend. It's not easy being Scully.

I happened to stumble onto this dark, moody series on the On Demand's BBC America channel and became speedily hooked. It's done by the Brits and they bring their sensibilities to the table.

Torchwood is the most-times dark, sometimes gory, adult tie-in to the new Doctor Who series, but that hardly matters as it is the most unique TV you'll ever see. ..Dr. Who producer & two-time Hugo-nominated writer Russell T. Davies created the series as an opportunity to do more than just family fare, part CSI, part X-files and the remaining part is out there on its own. In Dr. Who there have been hidden references to the "secret" organization TORCHWOOD (the name which is an anagram of DOCTOR WHO) since season one (an answer given by the ANNE DROID in BAD WOLF episode 12 ), then appearing more physically throughout season two, even featuring the origin of the organization created by Queen Victorian herself to defend the Earth from alien threats, including The Doctor. The series takes place over a hundred years later as Jack says on the promos, "In the 21st century, everything changes." Captain Jack Harkness (played BRILLIANTLY by the dashing John Barrowman, best known to Americans as the singing Nazi lead in the "Springtime for Hitler" number in the Producers musical) is a character introduced during season one of Dr. Who, an ex-time agent, con-man, the Doctor & Rose meet in the 1940's and turn towards the path of good and righteousness, well almost.

Jack is originally from the 51st century, which is intended to explain his oversexed ways (i.e. he is very liberal in who he "SNOGS"& "SHAGS" ) His background is really complex, even before he meets the Doctor, but he is missing some of his memories from his time as a time-agent, during the "Parting of the Ways" the first season finale of Dr. Who his character becomes even more interesting, but I won't say more without spoiler warnings.

I know I've referenced Dr. Who, a lot, but WATCHING DR.

I've never watched a single episode of Dr. Who, so if you are feeling a bit undecided on TW because it's a spin-off of Dr.Who and you've never watched the Dr. any way, then don't be. I have been watching TW since the 1st episode and I love it. It has a lot of action, drama, humor and there is some same-sex snogging(kissing) so if that bothers you don't watch. It all centers around a group of people that work at TW an organization that was formed to deal with alien threats on Earth. There are a few TW offices and this one happens to be in Cardiff, where Captain Jack says there is a rift in time and "things" from "out there" keep popping up in Cardiff. The series begins with the introduction of Police Constable Gwen Cooper, our link to TW so to speak for we are as lost as Gwen is when she stumbles on them. There is Captain Jack Harkness a guy from the future and the past, Ianto Jones the "gopher" coffee/tea maker but he will become much more then that in due time, Owen the doctor and resident ladies man, Toshiko the computer wiz.
To give you an idea of the series here are the episodes and a brief discription, no spoilers promise,and rating 1star worst 5 stars great.:
Epi.1: Everything Changes- Gwen Cooper comes across TW, and Jack discovers that rules aren't always followed. 5*
Epi.2: Day One- TW has to stop a sex addicted alien as it leaves a trail of dead bodies.5*
Epi.3: Ghost Machine- Gwen gets hold of an alien object that gives you visions of past crimes.4*
Epi.4: Cyberwoman- Ther's a dark secret in the basement of the Hub. Even jack is unawareof it, but Ianto knows.And he'll go to any lengths, sacrifice anything and anyone, to protect what's down there.5*
Epi.5: Small Worlds- A withdrawn child has some very gruesome friends.4*
