Facts included Edit

  • Torchwood was amongst the first BBC programmes to be filmed in HD.
  • Torchwood costume designer Ray Holman won the Best Costume award at the Welsh Bafta Awards on Saturday 26th April (the series was nominated for a further three awards which it didn't win).
  • Around 300 fans attended The Rift Event on April 26th April, the first (albeit unofficial) Torchwood Event.
  • Originally it was planned that Ianto Jones would die and come back but then it was decided that Owen Harper's loss of "body functionally" would be more dramatic.
  • In Series 2, Toshiko Sato's wardrobe was the most varied of the team.
  • A brief onscreen count of Captain Jack Harkness's death count in Fragments is 1,392 (and that was then!).
  • On her birth certificate Freema Agyeman's first name is spelt with only one "e", the extra "e" being added later as a stage name.

Additional details Edit

  • Titan Magazines was well known for its range of predominantly American TV tie-in titles that included Lost, Supernatural, Heroes, CSI: Miami, 24 and Prison Break.
  • Torchwood: The Official Magazine launched with a glossy cover, as a four-weekly title in January 2008 priced £3.75 (UK).
  • A subscription offer included a saving of 30% on 13 issues, including one special issue.
  • Of the 68 pages, 10 were given over to advertising with 8 pages for other titles from the publisher.
  • The next issue page for that published on 12th June 2008 includes the comment "contents subject to change".
  • Aimed at mature fans of the series, the magazines did not shy away from discussions involving sex and violence, topics integral to the success of this "adult" spin-off series from the BBC's more family friendly Doctor Who.
