Movie Trivia:
  • "Torchwood" is an anagram of "Doctor Who". When the first series of "Doctor Who" (2005) was being made, television pirates were desperate to acquire the preview tapes. One of the people in the office had the idea of labeling the tapes with the anagram "Torchwood" rather than "Doctor Who", as a security measure to disguise the tapes when they were delivered from Cardiff to London. Writer Russell T. Davies liked this idea so much that it later inspired him to use it as a title when creating this spin-off series.
  • "Torchwood" is the first Doctor Who spin-off to make it to series, and the first dramatic spin-off of "Doctor Who" (2005). A failed attempt to spin-off a series from the original "Doctor Who" (1963) resulted in the television special, K-9 and Company: A Girl's Best Friend (1981), featuring the characters K9 and Sarah Jane Smith. After failing to produce a series, the pilot was broadcast as a seasonal special.
  • Two of the regular characters - Jack Harkness, and Toshiko Sato - originally appeared on the parent series, "Doctor Who" (2005). Toshiko (Naoko Mori) was the government forensic pathologist called in to perform the autopsy on the alien corpse in "Doctor Who: Aliens of London (#1.4)" (2005). Jack (John Barrowman) first appeared in "Doctor Who: The Empty Child (#1.9)" (2005) and became one of the Doctor's companions. He was last seen in "Doctor Who: Journey's End (#4.13)" (2005). Eve Myles played a similarly named character on the parent series in the episode, "Doctor Who: The Unquiet Dead (#1.3)" (2005). It was heavily suggested that the two are related in "Doctor Who: The Stolen Earth (#4.12)" (2005) when the Doctor and Rose Tyler mention that she resembles the earlier character and she confirms that her family has lived in Cardiff since the 1800s. Freema Agyeman was a series regular in series three of "Doctor Who" (2005), as the Doctor's companion 'Martha Jones'. Agyeman later appeared in "Torchwood: Reset (#2.6)" (2006) and the two following episodes as the same character. Peter Capaldi plays 'John Frobisher' in the Children of Earth specials, and also played 'Caecillius' in "Doctor Who: The Fires of Pompeii (#4.2)" (2005). Also in Children of Earth, _"Torchwood" (2006) {Children of Earth: Day Four (#3.4)}_ Nicholas Briggs plays Rick Yates. Nicholas is the voice of the Daleks and the Cybermen in "Doctor Who" (2005)
  • In certain episodes, Torchwood members use a drug called "Retcon" to wipe the memories of people who know too much about the organization. Retcon is a term derived from "Retroactive Continuity" and is used in serialized fiction, especially comic books, for when new events effectively change or erase the established history of a series.
  • Torchwood was the subject of a background arc during the 2006 series of "Doctor Who" (2005), with most episodes containing at least one reference to the Torchwood Institute, beginning with the 2005 series episode "Bad Wolf" and culminating in the Institute's appearance in "Army of Ghosts" and "Doomsday". The 2006 episode "Tooth and Claw" details the origins of Torchwood. After "Torchwood"'s debut, it was referenced again in the Doctor Who Christmas special, "The Runaway Bride".
