Separate from the government, outside the police, beyond the United Nations: Torchwood sets its own rules. Led by the enigmatic, ever watchful Captain Jack Harkness, the Torchwood team delves into the unknown and fights the impossible.

From an underground base built on a rift in time and space, the team responds to any alien threat - a meteorite crash landing, sightings of extra-terrestrial technology, an unusual autopsy report, the spread of a deadly alien virus...

Everyone who works for Torchwood is young, under 35. Some say that's because its a new science. Others say its because they die young.

This seven disc collection includes all 13 episodes from The Complete First Season of Torchwood!

Editor's Note
This atmospheric DOCTOR WHO spin-off follows a clandestine group of investigators who delve into extraterrestrial phenomena. From the Torchwood Institute's underground headquarters in Cardiff, the team's edgy ensemble harnesses otherworldly technologies to battle both earthbound and extraterrestrial threats. Led by the mysterious Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), the fresh-faced group includes compassionate cop Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles), crack engineer Suzie Costello (Indira Varma), arrogant medic Owen Harper (Burn Gorman), computer expert Toshiko Sato (Naoko Mori), and jack-of-all-trades Ianto Jones (Gareth David Lloyd). Together, they face unbelievable challenges as they put themselves in harm's way to protect the human race from danger. This collection presents all 13 episodes of the British sci-fi drama's debut season.

Professional Reviews

Variety 8 of 10
The Brits have seldom excelled in science fiction relative to their strides in other genres, but this semi-spinoff of the new "Dr. Who" from its writer, Russell T. Davies, yields "X-Files"-ish charms with "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" bite -- a smart, occasionally salacious hour wryly populated by cheesy monsters. Built around another one of those crack teams assigned to protect the Earth, the quirky interaction within the group (which loses members here and there) elevates the material, as does John Barrowman's "Who"-originated perf as intrepid and mysterious Yank leader Capt. Jack Harkness...Davies and the other lead writer on the series, Chris Chibnall ("Life on Mars"), play much of it for laughs, but there's a bit of an edge in this British-Canadian coproduction as well. Beyond just a monster of the week, there's also a continuing element as Gwen adjusts to the team (and keeping her new gig secret from her boyfriend)...Briskly paced if relatively unimpressive in its sets and effects (one "alien" more than anything resembles a Vegas showgirl), "Torchwood" has the fixings of a thinking-man's sci-fi series that doesn't take itself too seriously -- as it should be, really, dwelling as the show does in that existential rift between really good and just OK, a treacherous zone if there ever was one. - Brian Lowry
