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'.
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".

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.
