torchwood is a multi-media spin-off of doctor who. the tv series originally aired between 2006 and 2011, following a 'monster of the week' format for the first two seasons and then switching to a continuous storyline for the two next. it has more mature content than its parent show (it was described by russell t davies as being "more visceral, more violent, and more sexual") and is more grounded in reality thanks to its consistent modern setting.

the story follows the adventures of the cardiff-branch of the torchwood institute, a secret alien-hunting organisation. it mostly centers on captain jack harkness, the mysterious leader, and gwen cooper, the newest recruit and audience surrogate.
