Separate from the government, outside the police, beyond the United Nations: Torchwood sets its own rules. Retrieving alien technology and responding to any extra-terrestrial threat — a meteorite crash landing, discovery of alien weapons, unusual autopsy reports — Torchwood are alien hunters in our world.
Operating from an underground base in Cardiff — built on a rift in time and space — Torchwood comprises the enigmatic leader Captain Jack harkness; second-in-command, alien hardware expert Suzie Costello; Owen Harper, young and hedonistic but a brilliant medic; reserved, technical genius Toshiko Sato; and Ianto Jones, a figure far more important than his receptionist's role suggests.
When Gwen Cooper, driven by a burning curiosity, stumbles into their world she discovers a hostile universe of savage aliens and monsters. Has she the courage to leave her ordinary life and join Torchwood's fight against the unknown and the impossible?
