Torchwood is a British science fiction television programme created by Russell T Davies. The series is a spin-off from Davies' 2005 revival of the long-running science fiction programme Doctor Who. As a show, Torchwood has transitioned its broadcast channel every year since its inception, moving from BBC Three to BBC Two to BBC One, and acquiring US financing in its fourth series. In contrast to Doctor Who, whose target audience includes both adults and children, Torchwood is aimed at an older audience.
I've just recently picked this up, and I'm only on the first season. I saw an episode of the more recent season on TV while flipping through the channels (so unfortunately, a bit has been spoiled for me. sigh.
I have to say: I bloody love it. I enjoyed the few episodes of Doctor Who I've seen (especially the attractine David Tennant). Torchwood is that serious, gripping sci-fci crime-scene kind of show I didn't think I'd enjoy. The episodes are just so addicting to watch, and I can't help but click on the next one. It's really hard to stop, sometimes.
Ianto is so cute. omfg.
