Torchwood started off 5 years ago in the shadow of its big brother, Doctor Who. But through 3 seasons, Torchwood has developed an identity of it's own. Here is a review of each series of Torchwood:

Series 1- A mixed bag. There were excellent episodes such as the opener'Everything Changes', 'Small Worlds', 'They Keep Killing Suzie', 'Random Shoes', 'Out of Time', and 'Captain Jack Harkness', middling episodes like 'Ghost Machine', 'Cyberwoman', 'Countrycide', 'Greeks Bearing Gifts', and the overambitious finale, 'End of Days', and stinkers such as 'Day One' and the appallingly written 'Combat.' Overall, the good outweighs the bad and Series 1 is great entertainment. 8/10

Series 2- An improvement on Series 1, with the good 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang', 'Sleeper', 'To the Last Man', 'Meat', 'Adam', 'Reset', and a fair share of good stuff and bad stuff. Better than the first series. 9/10

Children of Earth- Stunning drama from start to finish. It's amazingly written, amazingly acted, and amazingly shot. Perfect. 10/10

The boxset itself contains individual boxes for each series, in a compact sized case. I would highly recommend this.

Roll on Miracle Day!

If you want to catch up on Torchwood before the new series buy this boxset as it includes every episode so far, all of the Torchwood Declassified episodes and special features. One of my best buys in a long long time!

Living in New Zealand can sometimes be hard - it means you don't get to see fabulous new TV shows unless you order them from overseas. As an avid Doctor Who fan, especially the latest batch of Who to come from the BBC, purchasing Torchwood was an absolute must. And so worth it! The box is gorgeous, and the season collections are thoughtfully arranged in book-format cases.

I'm currently half way through season 2 and really don't want it to end. Loving John Barrowman's and Eve Myles's performances. The only let-down is the annoying voice-over at the start of every single episode. Really unnecessary.

I totally recommend buying the box set of Torchwood to anyone - fans of Who or not. Can't wait for more Torchwood!!

23 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Guillermo Moure on 26 Jan 2010
Format: Blu-ray
Image: 1080i/16:9
Sound: English (only) DTS HD
Subtitles available in english (only).
Disc Format: 6xBD50 6xBD25
Special Features come in standard definition (mostly 480p), 16:9 and english (only) stereo, as well as the english (only) subtitles.

Is completely delightful to have this collection in this ultimate format, as the experience becomes complete. Image (1080i, not p) and clear sound (superb DTS HD) makes this item a must-have for any Torchwood fan, owner of a proper Blu Ray player and a good music equipment.
Even if you're not a fan, stories of Torchwood are human and emotional, and the actors (both regulars and guest stars) make all the scripts becoming a true, living reality for the audience. Some of them, even that they come in the "envelope" of sci-fi, deal with such classic issues as human fears, family, trust, love... that won't leave you indifferent, and you will probably cry, laugh and feel as you keep watching.
Don't be wrong: this is an adult-oriented series, with some violence, sex and not-kind-words, and yet, those are not values that are the main essence of the show, but those I explained above.

The first "but" I could say about it is that sometimes you see the interlaced image coming from the sides of the screen (this was watched in a SONY KDL 40X-3500, updated to last firmware available), and depends how much "sensible" you are for those kind of things... sometimes is annoying.
The second "but" would be the packaging in which collection is presented. In my opinion, I would change the cardboard for something a bit less flexible and not suitable to be destroyed so much fast. But anyway, this is also a minor "but", since this packaging makes the price affordable.

Anyway, get this experience, own it and enjoy it.

Having not seen any Torchwood in the past, it is unlikely that I would have bought this product if it was not for the new series showing on television at the moment.

Having stumbled across the new episodes currently showing, I was intrigued to watch the early ones and what better way to watch than on Blu Ray!!

Over the course of a week or so, I watched the first two series and the Children of Mana short series. Overall I really enjoyed it!

In short this is kind of a 15+ Doctor Who with a fair amount of swearing and violence.
