4.0 out of 5 stars A sci-fi series that is fun and sexy
I don't normally enjoy science fiction shows, so I was surprised to find myself being drawn into this one.

I initially started watching because I liked John Barrowman but by the time the series had come to an end, I'd enjoyed the whole series. It's fun science fiction that doesn't take itself too seriously, it's much more character driven than most other sci-fi...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Triumph of Style over Content
But sadly not enough serious content to live up to the promise of the opening credits. I have to agree with Kevin O'Riordan - my exact comments were "Something like Dr. Who written by sex obsessed 5th form boys". The potential is there - so much potential is there - but it is so unrealised! Instead we are treated to so much in-fighting, swearing and gratuitous sex scenes,...

1.0 out of 5 stars really below standard, 7 Dec. 2006
By 
This review is from: Torchwood - Series 1 Part1, Episodes 1-5 (2 Disc Set) [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
doctor who is one of the best programmes on tv at the moment, and it is easy to give torchwood the benefit of the doubt because of it - but it is not the same. The scripts are clunky, melodramatic and just badly written - it follows a similar format every episode (i.e. torchwood encounter alien technology which proves too much for them and they destroy/ lock it up). The first episode, written by Russell T. Davies, was amazing, but they get steadily worse after that. "Adult" content is forced into it unnecessarily, and most episodes explore the writers twisted minds more than anything else. Do not waste money on this...

2.0 out of 5 stars Who Let the Dog Out!, 30 Nov. 2006

This review is from: Torchwood - Series 1 Part1, Episodes 1-5 (2 Disc Set) [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
Having watched Dr Who, just liking it and no more, I am sorry to say that this programme lacks character and has a weak trashy script that would suit an American cable network. The scripts are poor and characters have no real depth; episode 1 sees one of the cast die and episode 2 carries on as if the person never existed or even worked alongside them.

What a shame! I have given up after 5 shows but at least it's not as bad as Robin Hood.......utter drivel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Torchwood in two words "Utterly Fantastic", 29 July 2006
By 
This review is from: Torchwood - Series 1 Part1, Episodes 1-5 (2 Disc Set) [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
Torchwood is one of the greatest shows ever, with Captain Jack from Doctor Who Series 1 and a mix of brilliant characters to keep you entertained, i will be pre-ordering both part one and two as soon as i can. all i can do is recommend this to all as it is just the best show to watch on a sunday night.

1.0 out of 5 stars 1 star for the 'part 1' con, 7 Sept. 2006
By 
This review is from: Torchwood - Series 1 Part1, Episodes 1-5 (2 Disc Set) [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
I'm looking forward to seeing this spin-off, by all accounts it should be more adult-orientated than (the still wonderful) Doctor Who....BUT I'm so infuriated that it's being released in 2 parts: 2 discs for over £22?? One star for this obvious con.
