Re: [torchwood] Doctor Who and Torchwood.

While The Doctor has lost all his travelling companions it has usually been by them being banished into another dimension (like Rose) or they simply decide not to travel with him again (like Martha). He has never suffered loss in the same way as Jack has and that is the principal difference between them. They are both heroes in their own way but The Doctor I would say is a much less vulnerable one.
I have to disagree... the Doctor has lost at least 2 companions i can recall due to death - Adric and Sara Kingdom - and i think Cassandra? Plus he lost his entire family and almost his entire race - which according to him, he caused the genocide to occur during the time war. The only reason the Doctor will not be in TW (but TW can be in Dr Who) is that the show is billed as a kids series and kids will want to watch the Dr regardless of what show he is on. External studio politics, not something in the character that makes him a bad cross over candidate. The other reason is that the Doctor is the magic fix it man and that is NOT what TW is about... no deus ex machina for the TW gang... no 'just today everybody lives' moments.
