Torchwood, the spin-off from Doctor Who, is now available on DVD in the UK. Watch here for details about the American release; we already have the Torchwood books. Doctor Who airs in America on the SciFi Channel and BBC America, but I haven’t seen anything about either station airing its spinoff. Captain Jack, the main character on Torchwood, appears in numerous past and upcoming episodes of Who. Jack is a bisexual character, played by the handsome and openly gay actor/singer John Barrowman.
