The mysterious Captain Jack Harkness is the leader of the equally mysterious Torchwood, and vows to guard humanity against alien threats. Curious PC Gwen Cooper accidentally discovers the group, and soon becomes entangled in a series of events. This leads up to her being hired, and becoming involved in the exciting affairs of the organisation.

    Torchwood Fails to Pull Off a Miracle Ending

    Starz's sci-fi original finished its season in ridiculous, confusing fashion... though in retrospect, maybe that was the best possible scenario.

    • why was it canceled

      why when a tv show is really good it gets canceled, no fair.
    • Mixed bag

      Torchwood Season 1 was excellent, perhaps because it remained faithful to Russell T. Davies' vision. Season 2's storyline was uneven and uninspired and the acting was mediocre. Season 3's Children of the Earth offered a fitting ending to the series. Bringing it back in the . was a risk that didn't pay off. It left many diehard Torchwood fans with a sour taste.

      Rather than hope for a return of another mediocre season of Torchwood, let's hope that RTD becomes once again inspired to write more sci-fi of the same caliber as the best of Dr. Who and Torchwood. Some things are best left as memories.moreless
    • Bring it back

      Just watched the whole series. Loved it, but they need to stay out of the US!!! Much better in the UK!!!

      I hope they decide to bring it back again!!!! It was an awesome series!!! And now there are so many more questions that need to be answered!!!
    • Can anyone please tell me...

      How come season 4 hasn't got all 10 episodes in the episode guide? If someone could send me a message that would be highly appreciated.
    • Give us an update or end it!!!

      Seriously, the network should tell us if they plan on killing this spinoff altogether or continuing it. Torchwood has always been the "Darker Side" of the Doctor Who universe, but since Doctor Who episodes have had a darker/more adult theme lately I'm wondering if Torchwood is still needed. Honestly, I can't say that I've missed it that much. So many characters have been killed off and the Miracle day miniseries wasn't that great. If they get a new cast of characters and give the show a life of it's own like it had when they first started, I'd be interested in watching it again. Either way, just tell us what's going on.moreless
