Captain Jack Harkness, the former Time Agent and con man from the 51st century last seen traveling with the Doctor, ventures to early 21st century Cardiff. There, he becomes a member of Torchwood Institute, a renegade criminal investigation group founded by Queen Victoria to battle hostile extraterrestrial and supernatural threats.
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. Everyone who works for Torchwood
is young. Some say that's because it's a new science. Others say
it's because they die young. Starring John Barrowman, Gareth
