      I don't know if it's accurate of course, you would be better judges
      of this.

      "The Twenty-First Century is when it all changes. And you've gotta be
      ready."
      – Captain Jack Harkness

      `Torchwood' follows the adventures of a team of investigators from
      the top-secret organisation known as the Torchwood Institute. Working
      separately from the government, outside the police and above the
      United Nations, the team utilise captured alien technology to defend
      the Earth from extraterrestrial threat, and to solve crimes both
      human – and alien. The team is led by the dashing Captain Jack
      Harkness, a Time Agent from the Fifty-First Century, and comprises of
      Owen Harper, the cocky and oversexed medic; Toshiko Sato, who
      specialises in all things technical; impeccably-dressed receptionist-
      administrator Ianto Jones; and Gwen Cooper, a policewoman whose
      dogged curiosity led her to uncover the truth behind the shadowy
      organisation that she eventually joined.

      The Torchwood Institute was originally founded by Queen Victoria,
      following the events at Torchwood House in the Scottish Highlands in
      1879. After encountering a mysterious man known as the Doctor and his
      assistant, Rose, the Queen and her party were captured by a band of
      warrior monks and terrorised by a vicious alien werewolf – a
      terrifying experience which prompted the queen to found an institute
      to investigate and fight supernatural threats. Over the years,
      Torchwood has retrieved and studied extraterrestrial artefacts and
      technology that has found its way to Earth; helped defeat attacks
      from alien races such as the Sycorax, the Cybermen and the Daleks;
      and kept a record of any sightings of the enigmatic time-traveller
      called the Doctor…

      `Torchwood' was created by the prolific Russell T Davies, and is a
      spin-off from `Doctor Who', the show that Davies successfully revived
      and transformed into the BBC's award-winning flagship programme.
      However, unlike its parent, `Torchwood' is aimed at a post-watershed
      audience, enabling it to be much darker, grittier, swearier and
      sexier – as Davies puts it, a "sci-fi paranoid thriller, a cop show
      with a sense of humour". Combining these elements with slick visuals
      and smart direction succeeds in giving the show a style that sets it
      apart from traditional `Doctor Who' (even managing to make the show's
      main location, Cardiff, look like Los Angeles), but the scripts still
      include enough references to bring a knowing smile to a `Doctor Who'
      fan's lips. The only problem with `Torchwood' is that it just isn't
      as `grown up' as it was promised to be, leaving the viewer with the
      feeling that it isn't quite as good as it could have been; hopefully
      season two will address this – as well as give us more monsters!

      The Torchwood Institute itself was first referred to in the `Doctor
      Who' episode 'Bad Wolf', and seen in action (albeit off-screen)
      in 'The Christmas Invasion'; a prelude followed in `'Tooth and Claw',
      while many episodes in Season 28 contained references to the
      organisation. It is worth noting the name "Torchwood" is actually an
      anagram of "Doctor Who", an in-joke as Russell T Davies used the
      name 'Torchwood' as a security measure during the production
      of 'Doctor Who', to disguise preview tapes of the first episodes.
