Torchwood. Outside the government, beyond the police. Formed at the behest of Queen Victoria to combat the unnatural threats against her reign, this secret organisation has existed for hundreds of years and in many forms – whether exposing the weird and the strange in Victorian London, or battling Cybermen and Daleks at Canary Wharf – and culminating in perhaps its most iconic incarnation under the command of Captain Jack Harkness: Cardiff’s Torchwood Three. Saving the Earth and arming the human race have always come at a price; Torchwood has racked up a heavy body count over the years, with operatives and friends Owen Harper, Toshiko Sato, and Ianto Jones all lost in the line of duty. The 456 incursion and the Miracle Day event likewise took their toll on those that survived, both Jack and Gwen retreated from the world afterwards. But in the face of an ecological, Gaian apocalypse, Gwen and Jack were forced to return to the fight – now ably assisted by the crew of an ice-rigging ship augmented with stolen alien technology – the Ice Maiden. The world saved once more, Gwen returned to Cardiff with husband Rhys and daughter Anwen, while Jack and the crew of the Ice Maiden left for regions – and planets – unknown! But the Earth has plenty of deadly secrets still to share. And humanity is never short of enemies…
