Torchwood Reviews & Ratings

The series is set in Cardiff, some time after the Doctor Who (2005) series two finale, setting it in 2007 and later in early 2008 ahead of its actual air date. It follows the Wales branch of a covert agency called the Torchwood Institute which investigate extraterrestrial incidents on Earth and scavenges alien technology for its own use. To paraphrase Torchwood Three's commander-in-chief, Captain Jack Harkness, the organisation is beyond the government, the police, and the United Nations. Their public perception is as merely a 'special ops' group.

For a spin-off it does a great job of being a stand-alone series

I started this show because it was a spin off of Doctor Who. Got to say it wasn't what I originally expected. I didn't really care for the first season except a couple episodes. The second season improved and the third was really good. Very dark show. Just a heads up, it is nothing like Doctor Who, so be warned. It's more of adult sci-fi show

Bit of an odd show, but it is good. It combines heartshattering drama with humor and light filler episodes.

Earthbound alien adventures with the same tongue in cheek humour as it's parent show but giving russel t davies the chance to play with his new toy, omni-sexual Jack Harkness. The fluid sexuality of the main character meant it was never going to be a mainstream success but I think it deserved better treatment than it was given by starz network, putting the final nail in it's coffin with miracle day.

A great British sci-fi show. Worth a watch even if you don't like Doctor Who as its story is entirely its own. It's a bit far-fetched and includes a lot of heartache but worth a watch nonetheless.

LOVE this show and it makes me smile. It is a good continuation into the adult themes fo the older audience for Doctor Who.

I LOVED the first two seasons of this show! It was a great companion to Doctor Who. Season 3 was a bit different because it was a six-part storyline. I think it may have been better if the show had ended at the end of season 2, which is why I rated it as low as I did.
