Review of Torchwood TV SeriesMarch 15, 2007
This spin-off from Doctor Who is well worth a look

I have watched all the episodes of the first series of Torchwood on BBC2 (they had previously been on BBC3). This is the “adult” spin-off from Doctor Who starring the Captain Jack Harkness character.
Overall it is well worth a look. Much more bawdy and harsh than the more kid friendly Doctor with decent meaty scripts. The only real drawback is that they clearly don’t have a huge budget and they have set it in Wales which means the accents do start to grate after a while. Makes sense tho to set it in the place you are actually filming in.
The plotlines started to get a bit repetitive towards the end but some of the edgier moments keep you interested. Should be a ne series coming along in the next few months
