Torchwood (UK: /ˈtɔːrtʃˌwʊd/) is a British science fiction television programme created by Russell T Davies. A spin-off from the 2005 revival of long-running science fiction programme Doctor WhoTorchwood aired four series between 2006 and 2011. The show shifted its broadcast channel each series to reflect its growing audience, moving from BBC Three to BBC Two to BBC One, and acquiring US financing in its fourth series when it became a co-production of BBC One and Starz. In contrast to Doctor Who, whose target audience includes both adults and children, Torchwood is aimed at older teenagers and adults. Over its run, the show explored a number of themes; prominent among these were existentialism, homosexuality and bisexuality, and explorations of human corruptibility.
