Overview

Torchwood is an action-packed, adrenaline-fuelled sci-fi TV series following the adventures of a team of investigators, working for the secret organisation Torchwood, who use scavenged alien technology to solve present day crime - both alien and human.

The team, led by the enigmatic, ever-watchful Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman, reprising his Doctor Who role in this spin-off from the legendary series), are separate from the government, outside the police and beyond the United Nations.

This full-color companion to the show contains behind the scenes secrets, cast and crew interviews and some exclusive new Torchwood short stories!

Torchwood is shown on BBC America, and available on DVD.

The quality of this book is surpizingly slick, with very good graphics and a high level production. What really surprized me was the inclusion of original fiction pieces, like a fan site would have. Of course since this is a BBC-sanctioned book one would hope for good writing, and I wasn't in the least disappointed. Fun stories, with accurate characterizations, but some of the editing is a bit rough, making me wonder if they cranked this out a bit too fast in order to cash in on the show's popularity. Overall a very good gift idea for fans of any age (no explicit sex, as one can get with Torchwood) and pretty much de rigur for the dedicated Woodie.

The Torchwood Official Magazine Yearbook is the ultimate guide to the second season of the BBC's hit series, Torchwood. One of two immensely successful Doctor Who spin-offs, Torchwood really came into its own during its second season.Included in the book are brief character biographies of each team member, a Season 2 episode guide, interviews with John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) and James Marsters (Captain John Hart), a set report from the filming of the episode "Something Borrowed", a tour of the Hub set, and five original short stories by Steven Savile, David Llewellyn, Andy Lane, Trevor Baxendale and Joseph Lidster. The short stories alone are worth the price of the book, but there are lots of other great features.The yearbook is filled with full-color photos and behind-the-scenes information. If you've read the Torchwood Magazine, much of the content of the yearbook may be familiar to you. However, the magazine can be hard to track down in the United States. The yearbook is a great way to make the content of the (excellent) Torchwood Magazine more accessible to American fans, and it's truly a treat for any Torchwood fan.
