Shelves: television, reference
Available from Amazon.UK, this is a great collection of everyone and everything that might have been on the Brit series Torchwood, from A from Andromeda (borrowed by Eugene Jones from the DVD rental store) to Zenegon Rain (A movie for rent in Josh's DVD store). It also references the radio broadcasts "Lost Souls", "Asylum", "Golden Age", and "The Dead Line", but doesn't include the books.

Covering all three Series to date, but not Captain Jack's appearances on Doctor Who, this is a great collect

Very informative. But sometimes a bit too repetitive. Perfect for fans of the show though.
