Smallscreen - Torchwood
Produced by BBC Three, "Torchwood" is a British sci-fi thriller by Russell T Davies.
Separate from the Government; outside police jurisdiction and beyond the United Nations: Torchwood sets its own rules.
Torchwood will follow the adventures of a team of investigators as they use alien technology to solve crime; both alien and human.
This new British sci-fi crime thriller, set in Cardiff, Wales will see them delve into the unknown.
They are a group of people fighting the impossible while having to keep their everyday lives going back at home.
"Torchwood is a British sci-fi paranoid thriller, a cop show with a sense of humour," says Davies. "It's dark, wild and sexy, it's the X Files meets This Life. It's a stand-alone series for adult audiences which will have its own unique identity."
The cast includes John Barrowman as the enigmatic Captain Jack Harkness - the ever watchful heart of the Torchwood team, guarding against the fragility of human kind.
Eve Myles plays Gwen Cooper - initially an outsider whose first meeting with Torchwood sparks a burning curiosity to get to the truth, throwing her into an unfamiliar but exciting world.
Burn Gorman plays the raw but charming medic Owen Harper and Naoko Mori is Toshiko Sato, the team member who specialises in all things computer, surveillance and technical.
BBC Three Controller Julian Bellamy announced the series as the "centrepiece" of the channel's 2006 autumn schedule.
"Torchwood is just the sort of cutting-edge, ambitious drama of real scale we're seeking on BBC Three," he said.
Torchwood is a BBC Wales production for BBC Three written by Russell T Davies and Chris Chibnall, with contributing writers including PJ Hammond, Toby Whithouse and Helen Raynor.
