Book Description

15 Oct 2009 Torchwood (Book 16)
Founded by Queen Victoria in 1879, the Torchwood Institute has been defending Great Britain from the alien hordes for 130 years. Though London's Torchwood One was destroyed during the Battle of Canary Wharf, the small team at Torchwood Three have continued to monitor the space-time Rift that runs through Cardiff, saving the world and battling for the future of the human race. Now you can discover every fact and figure, explore every crack in time, and encounter every creature that Torchwood have dealt with. Included here are details of: The secret of the Children of Earth; Operatives from Alice Guppy to Gwen Cooper; Extraterrestrial visitors from Arcateenians to Weevils; The life and deaths of Captain Jack Harkness, and much more. Illustrated throughout with photos and artwork from all three series, this A-Z guide provides everything you need to know about Torchwood.

This is a very detailed book by the ever reliable Gary Russell. It even lists which songs are playing in the background of certain scenes and characters who are only refered to in dialogue. I doubt you could trip it up on anything and it is also well illustrated. It covers the radio plays as well as the TV series but not the novels, comic strips, etc. The only thing against it is that with a new series coming up, another volume will be needed for that.
