I'm off the grid today. There's a Torchwood marathon playing and I fully intend to savor every moment. I started watching this series from the first episode on the BBC in October, 2006, and never missed a show. It's sort of a spin-off from Doctor Who, though for the most part it takes place in Cardiff, Wales, with a team of people who fight monsters and aliens and bizarre things that go bump in the night.
Though I love the weird--and often tearful and poignant--stories, the brilliant actors, and the scenery of a most beautiful part of the UK, I freely admit that I watch this excellent program because of Captain Jack Harkness, the immortal leader of the Torchwood Institute.
