The members of the Torchwood Institute, a secret organization founded by the British Crown, fight to protect the Earth from extraterrestrial and supernatural threats.
Owen and Suzie are the only members of the Torchwood team never to have had direct contact with the Doctor. Jack has been companion to both the Ninth and Tenth incarnations; Toshiko met the Ninth Doctor while examining the space pig in Doctor Who: Aliens of London (2005); and Gwen and Ianto met the Tenth Doctor through the sub-wave network in Doctor Who: The Stolen Earth (2008).
Captain Jack Harkness:
Torchwood: outside the government, beyond the police. Tracking down alien life on Earth, arming the human race against the future. The twenty-first century is when everything changes. And you gotta be ready.
As this series was released in Spain before Doctor Who, the translation modifies some mayor canon facts in order to make them understandable for the audience. Because of that, the Doctor is always referenced as "Doctor Who" and Cybermen are called Cyborgs. No dubbing actors repeated their roles in both series. Some other modifications were also made when Doctor Who (1963) was first broadcast in Castilian Spanish.
