Torchwood and Doctor Who are the absolute best shows on tv. I know many would argue that that honor currently belongs to Battlestar Galatica (which I do like a lot) but I disagree. When I was first introduced to the character of Captain Jack Harkness in Season 1 of Doctor Who he rather annoyed me. I never saw how I would ever come to like this character. Let me tell you, Captain Jack rocks! While at first introduction he might seem a very shallow character he is absolutely not. He is an extremely complex character that I love more with each episode. However, it is not just Captain Jack that makes Torchwood so spectacular . It is the entire cast of characters and their complex relationships. it is Jack, Tosh, Ianto, Gwen and Owen that make it all work. If you are new to the Doctor Who/Torchwood world, I would recommend watching Season 1-3 of Doctor Who and then watching Season 1 of Torchwood if you want to get the full history (and Jack's). However, if you just want to dig it and start watching Torchwood, they do explain enough that you will enjoy the show and it will make sense. Check this out and see what a great ensemble cast really looks like!
What do you get when you combine the BBC with the Sci Fi channel? Torchwood, which is kind of like an X-files/detective show but cooler! There is a machine that can bring someone back to life for a little bit, there are aliens there's time travel... what else could you ask for?
Love, love torchwood. Huge fan, I'm crossing my fingers that it comes back to the BBC in full force!
