Yes, as a matter of fact, I am a Torchwood fan...

Yes. It has been awhile. But, I suppose it figures I'd come back with this quiz:

Which Torchwood Character Are You?
Your Result: Gwen Cooper

You most resemble the team's second-in-command and ex-police officer. Empathetic and stubborn, you tend to grab the bull by its horns and have difficulty admitting when you're wrong, though you always mean well. You are inconsistent in your relationships, wanting stability but also craving drama, and sometimes end up putting yourself first.

Captain Jack Harkness
Ianto Jones
Toshiko Sato

I can live with this result, but I somehow thought I'd be Toshiko...or maybe the female version of Ianto.

Well, I have never heard of Torchwood so I would not be a good judge of this.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Torchwood is a spin-off of Doctor Who, a science fiction series on British TV which has been around, on and off, since the early 1960s. But, while Doctor Who has always been considered to be a children's show, despite legions of adult fans like myself (and despite the fact that its most recent seasons have been aimed as much at the adult as at the childrens' audience), Torchwood is an after-the-watershed (shown later at night) show, with more adult situations and language.

Torchwood can be seen in the US, when there is a series in progress, on BBCAmerica. Doctor Who can be seen on both BBCAmerica and on the SciFi Channel (or whatever they're calling it these days).

There is, by the way, another spin-off of Doctor Who, which has been shown here in the States on the SciFi Channel, The Sarah Jane Adventures, which is more clearly aimed at children and adolescents. The Sarah Jane in the title is one of the Doctor's companions (he almost always travels through time and space with one or more (usually) human companions), and is portrayed in the current Adventures by the same actress who played Sarah Jane in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

The Doctor, by the way, is not human but is a Time Lord from Gallifrey. He travels through time and space in what appears to be a 1950s-style blue British police call-box that is bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

Torchwood, to get back to the original issue, is an organization developed by Queen Victoria after having met up with the Doctor and one of his companions, knighting him, and then banishing him from the Empire, aimed at protecting the realm from alien threats. The stories told on Torchwood revolve around Torchwood Three, based in Cardiff and tasked with monitoring a rift in space and time which is unstable and from which aliens and time-travelers are deposited in present-day Wales.

There. Now, isn't that more than you ever wanted to know about British science fiction television? If by some chance it isn't, you can search for Doctor Who on Wikipedia.

And, yes, I'm a big fan.
