Cover blurb:
"The 21st Century is when it all changes and you've got to be ready..." — Captain Jack Harkness

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.

From an underground base built on a rift in time and space, the team responds to any alien threat — a meteorite crash landing, sightings of extra-terrestrial technology, an unusual autopsy report, the spread of a deadly alien virus... Everyone that works for Torchwood is young, under 35. Some say that's because it's a new science. Others say it's because they die young.

Note:  The BBC still decided to still go ahead with this release despite HD-DVD losing the high-definition "format war" to Blu-ray in early 2008 — meaning this was one of the very last ever commercial releases in the doomed HD-DVD format.

The exact text from the back cover is as follows — and yes, the blurb is in Swedish while the extras list is in half-English/half-Swedish:

I Torchwood får vi följa ett undersökningsteam under ledning av den gåtfulle kapten Jack Harkness. Teamet agerar i Storbritannien i nutid och använder sig av utomjordisk teknologi för att lösa brott — som begås av både utomjordingar och människor. Teamet är inte underställt regeringen och inte heller polisen. De står utanför FN:s beslutandesfär. Alla som arbetar för Torchwood är unga, under 35 år. Vissa menar att det beror på att det är en ny vetenskap, medan andra säger att det är därför att de dör unga...

Cover blurb:
TORCHWOOD - 1: TUOTANTOKAUSI

Torchwood kertoo tutkijaryhmästä, jota johtaa salaperäinen Jack Harkness. Sarja sijoittuu nykypäivän Englantiin, jossa ryhmä käyttää muukalaisilta peräisin olevaa teknologiaa rikosten ratkaisemiseksi raa'assa todellisuudessa. Sarja tutkii sekä ihmisten että muukalaisten tekemiä rikoksia riippumatta hallituksesta, poliisista ja YK:sta. Torchwood ryhmässä työskentelevät tutkijat ovat kaikki nuoria, alle 35-vuotiaita. Väitetään, että se johtuu siitä, että käytetty teknologia on niin nuorta. Tosin väitetään myös, että se johtuu siitä, että kaikki kuolevat niin nuorina...
