Torchwood (2006-2011) is a spinoff of the iconic Doctor Who that was intended to be (and is) sexier, more adult, and literally down to Earth. It's about an elite, secret task force that investigates alien activity, led by the rather amazing omnisexual Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman). Torchwood is the reason I finally started watching Doctor Who. That's the cart before the horse in a great big way, isn't it? That also means that I didn't have years of Doctor Who behind me to add history and context to my Torchwood reviews. But I wrote them, anyway.

Torchwood ran for two seasons and two miniseries, Children of Earth (outstanding) and Miracle Day (sort of sucked, unfortunately).
