      Volume 1, Number 1

      Doctor Who's first spinoff to go further than a pilot premieres this
      weekend. Torchwood, the story of the mysterious Torchwood
      organization's Cardiff branch, currently led by Captain Jack
      Harkness, a man with his own secrets. 13 fifty minute episodes are
      being produced for this series, with the potential to make
      additional series in the future. It has roots in Doctor Who but is
      expected to be independent of the parent show.

      Torchwood De-Classified is a documentary tie-in series. We do not
      know how many episodes there are yet. For now they are only airing
      on BBC Three and for UK military forces abroad on BFBS 2 and BFBS

      Torchwood This Week is an effort to keep viewers updated on all
      known broadcasts of Torchwood around the world, much as This Week In
      Doctor Who has done for the senior program for the past 8 years. As
      we learn more about Torchwood, the format may revamp a bit to work
      with the show. If no other stations pick it up before the initial
      broadcasters finish their run, it may stop production briefly until
      Torchwood makes it to other countries. It is only publishing if the
      show is running somewhere.

      The current version of Doctor Who is aimed at "family" audiences,
      while Torchwood is aimed at "adult" audiences after the 9PM UK
      programming watershed. There is every reason to believe that there
      will be more gore, violence, coarser language, and sexual innuendo
      than Doctor Who. If you have children who may be interested in this
      series, pre-screen the episodes first to ensure that the material is
      appropriate. If not, they still have Doctor Who, and The Sarah Jane
      Adventures will be aimed at a younger audience when it arrives in

      Enjoy the ride. Here's hoping that Torchwood is a fun, interesting
