I know everyone is going to be buzzing about Comic Con this coming week, but it would be a real crime if this gets passed over by Sci Fi Fans.
DISCLAIMER- This is NOT a show for kids! Don’t watching with the young’uns. Also there is homosexuality depicted between two of characters. Just giving you a warning if you are sensitive to that sort of thing, but I would really hope that’s not a deterrent for people in 2009, and that you can overcome that bias in the spirit of watching a great story unfold.
Here are a couple of trailers for it to whet your appetite.
The series is set in Cardiff and follows the Welsh branch of a covert agency called the Torchwood Institute which investigates extraterrestrial incidents on Earth and scavenges alien technology for its own use (its origins are outlined in the Doctor Who episode "Tooth and Claw"). To paraphrase Torchwood Three’s commander-in-chief, Captain Jack Harkness, the organisation is separate from the government, outside the police, and beyond the United Nations. Their public perception is as merely a ‘special ops’ group. The events of the first series take place some time after the Doctor Whoseries two finale, in which Torchwood’s London headquarters were destroyed.
If I were you I wouldn’t read too much more of the Wiki entry as it does have spoilers for these episode.
DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND WATCH!
I don’t know where they will go with the show after these 5 hours, but I’m with them all the way.
And now back to my regularly scheduled Comic Con preparations….
