|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 five disc collection includes all 13 episodes from The Complete Second Season of Torchwood!
