If you are currently suffering from the Sci Fi Channel's Flash Gordon, never fear Torchwood is here. Having already watched the 35 minute preview on BBC American On Demand, I can safely say, I love this series.
Here's a video podcast with actor John Barrowman describing what is Torchwood and who is Captain Jack. This is part one of seven podcast episodes. The next episodes will be released as the TV series airs.
The complete series has already been seen outside of America. If you start doing any searching for additional information or come across fan websites, you'll no doubt spoil it, for yourself.
Torchwood is led by the enigmatic, ever-watchful Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman - Doctor Who), uses scavenged alien technology to solve present day crime - both alien and human. They’re separate from the government, working outside the police and beyond the United Nations.
From an underground base built on a rift in time and space, Torchwood sets its own rules, delving into the unknown and fighting the impossible whether it is responding to an alien threat, sightings of extra-terrestrial technology, an unusual autopsy report, or the spread of a deadly alien virus.
Part X-Files, part Angel, Torchwood is the team we’d all love to be part of, where excitement comes before morality and the rules are made as you go along.
Torchwood premieres Saturday, September 8th at 9pm EST / 8pm CST.
