The Torchwood Official Magazine Yearbook is the ultimate guide to the second season of the BBC's hit series, Torchwood. One of two immensely successful Doctor Who spin-offs, Torchwood really came into its own during its second season.

Included in the book are brief character biographies of each team member, a Season 2 episode guide, interviews with John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) and James Marsters (Captain John Hart), a set report from the filming of the episode "Something Borrowed", a tour of the Hub set, and five original short stories by Steven Savile, David Llewellyn, Andy Lane, Trevor Baxendale and Joseph Lidster. The short stories alone are worth the price of the book, but there are many other great features.

The yearbook is filled with full-color photos and behind-the-scenes information. If you've read the Torchwood Magazine, much of the content of the yearbook will be familiar to you. However, the magazine can be hard to track down in the United States. The yearbook is a great way to make the content of the (excellent) Torchwood Magazine more accessible to American fans, and it's truly a treat for any Torchwood fan.

Titan, the company that publishes Torchwood Magazine, is pretty smart. The magazine market is pretty crowded, so I don't imagine a lot of places carry the actual magazine; by reprinting several articles into a hardover Torchwood Magazine Yearbook, however, the company is able to reach bookstores all over the world and have it available for gift-giving around the holidays. Finally, throw in several new short stories to lure in the people who do regularly read the magazine, and who wouldn't buy the Yearbook?!?! (in theory there could be people who neither like Torchwood nor know anyone who does, buy why concern ourselves with such extravagant hypotheticals?)

The Yearbook consists of six reprinted articles and five new (very) short stories. Everything is centered around the season two incarnation of the team. The articles reprinted are: "Meet the Team", "Inside the Hub", "O Captain, My Captain" (interviews with Barrowman and Marsters), "Series Two Episode Guide", "Aging Agyeman" (aging make-up), and "Forever Hold Your Rhys" (behind the scenes at the big wedding episode). The episode guide is probably the best of the lot, as there's a lot of fun little trivia. The interview with James Marsters, about playing Captain John, is also interesting--I get the sense from it and others I've read with the actor that he's one of the few Buffy alums who isn't a fan of Joss Whedon like everyone else seems to be; that he feels Joss really watered down Spike and maybe that the director plays favorites with the cast.

As I said, the short stories are pretty short--five or six pages each.

"Black Water" by Steven Savile has an intriguing plot, as a mysterious ship covered in a strange black oil sails into Cardiff Bay.

Any science fiction fan of the TV series TORCHWOOD will find TORCHWOOD: THE OFFICIAL MAGAZINE YEARBOOK winner. It packs in color photos to accompany plot synopsis, credits, dates, color sidebars of detail, and more. Vivid stories and accounts make TORCHWOOD a winning yearbook especially recommended for fans of the series who want a keepsake of its highlights.
