Separate from the government, outside the police, beyond the United Nations: Torchwood sets its own rules. Retrieving alien technology and responding to any ectra-terrestrial threat - a meteorite crash landing, discovery of alien weapons, unusual autopsy reports - Torchwood are alien hunters in our world. Operating from an underground base in Cardiff - built on a rift in time and space - Torchwood is comprised of the enigmatic leader Captain Jack Harkness; resourceful Gwen Cooper, the passion and drive of the team; Owen Harper, young and hedonistic but a brilliant medic; reserved, technical genius Toshiko Sato; and lanto Jones, a figure for more important than his receptionist's role suggests.
