Product Description

The third and final installment of episodes from the popular Doctor Who spin-off series set in Cardiff. Captain Jack, from Doctor Who, is in charge of Torchwood - a disparate crew of investigators, each an expert in his chosen field, searching desperately for alien debris that has fallen to earth. They're beyond the rule of law - hired by the UK government and in a race to find the technology before the UN does so that they might use it to fight crime here on earth. Episodes included are: 'Out Of Time', 'Combat', 'Captain Jack Harkness' and 'End Of Days'.

Synopsis

Torchwood follows the adventures of a team of investigators, led by the enigmatic Captain Jack. Set in present-day Britain, the team use scavenged alien technology in a very real world to solve crime - both alien and human. Separate from the government. Outside the police. Beyond the United Nations. Everyone who works for Torchwood is young - under 35. Some say that's because it's a new science. Others say it's because they all die young....

Volume 3 of this exciting Doctor Who spin-off finds philanderer of the future Jack Harness arriving in contemporary Cardiff and being inducted into the Torchwood agency. Episodes include "Out of Time", "Combat", "Captain Jack Harkness" and "End of Days".

This thirds and final set of episodes from Torchwoods first series finishes off as it started with four good but flawed episodes.

Of the four episodes on this set episode ten `Out of Time' is my favourite. It is about three people from the 1650s who find themselves thrust into the modern world. The episode is quite funny, if corny in places, and it does have a nice emotional heart to it as the three characters try to adjust to their new situation.

Episode eleven, `Combat', is a basic sci-fi Fight Club knockoff but does give Owen some character Development. The episode is basic and predictable but is otherwise okay to watch.

The penultimate episode, `Captain Jack Harkness', sees Jack and Toshiko transported back to the Second World War. This episode is interesting and sheds a bit of light onto Jack's past. The episode also introduces the really interesting character of Bilis Manger who in typical Torchwood manner is never properly utilised.

The series finale `End of Days' is something of a letdown to be honest. Like many Torchwood episodes the finale has some really nice ideas and sets up the plot very well only to fluff it towards the end with a rather poor CGI baddie and something of a reset button.

Overall I would say that this first series of Torchwood is terribly flawed but still enjoyable to watch. It did get off to a shaky start but by the end it was definitely deserving of a second series.

I live in San Diego, California. I go to this huge convention here called Comic-Con each July. This year they had a presentation on Torchwood. I immediatly ordered the series from Amazon (I have a region free player), and have been very impressed by it. The writing has been fantastic, and the actors are all excellent. I do hope that they do a second season.

I've enjoyed this series throughout mainly because of the character of Capt Jack Harkness who becomes more mysterious throughout despite the more we learn about him.

Although the series had some disappointing episodes and a little bit too much sex thrown in at times, the series was interesting, compelling and dark. i enjoyed it more on a second watching, as soon as Captain Jack rejoined the Doctor recently i had to watch it again because even when it was disappointing the links to doc who(the hand, cyberwoman, vote Saxon posters etc.)and jacks character make you think.

The last two episodes on this were the best by far, they kept me hooked throughout, made me cry a few times and left me wanting more. i do hope they make another series and learn from the mistakes made in the poorer episodes, even if part of me does want Jack to stay with the doctor.

Format: DVD
A great end to a great series. I've given the other two DVD releases of Torchwood series 1 four stars each. But I feel this deserves the full five stars.

The first episode of this DVD release wasn't the best, there seems to be a bit of a plot hole around the time hole, but it did have some magnificent moments. Particularly those between John Ellis and Captain Jack where they open up and talk openly about suicide. The way this deals with the social aspect of being several decades ahead of your own time saves the episode. It gives it a really interesting spin and makes the episode so compelling to watch.

Combat was a phenomenal episode! I love the Weevils and this was an episode where they took centre stage. Weevils are hideous, but this episode makes you pity them and will them 'to win'. This was Owen's episode too. I like Owen in this series, his cocky, light hearted persona contrasts well with Jack's dark mystery and Gwen's down-to-earthness.

I don't want to spoil anything by talking about the last two episodes, so I'll leave them alone. All I'll say is that you learn more about Captain Jack, and you might hear a familiar noise!

Format: DVD
Torchwood is one of those TV programmes that you either love or loathe, there does not appear to be any middle ground, having read and listened to many opinions on it. That said, I am definitely in the former school of thought though, I think that Russell T. Davies has created an intelligent and enthralling Sci Fi series, that providing it can keep up the standards of this first season, should be with us for years to come.

John Barrowman reprises his role as the bisexual time traveller - Captain Jack Harkness, from the first series of Dr Who. Here he is the head of Cardiff's Torchwood Institute, a clandestine organisation set up to monitor and control extraterrestrial activity, at the same time looking after UK interests....
His team comprises of former WPC Gwen, Owen - a doctor, Toshiko an IT expert, and Ianto a Jack Of All Trades (including being Jack's part time lover). Suzy another member of the team is killed off at the beginning but gets to make a return appearance in a later episode.
The Sci Fi aspect apart, Torchwood focuses on the various characters in detail, as the series unfolds. The selfish and cynical Owen is examined in greater detail when he experiences real love for the first time, and in another episode when he gets to question his raison d'etre in an episode which nods towards the film 'Fight Club'. Gwen's relationship with her boyfriend Reece is sympathetically explored and how the pressures of work and her attraction to Owen impact upon it. We also get to learn more about Jack and his past life, loves and experiences.

All thirteen episodes of the series have their strengths and weaknesses to varying degrees. The last two episodes, however, do link into Dr Who (giving any more detail would be a spoiler).
