However rather than having him conquering time and space in his time craft The Gay Agenda, it appears he will be based in a research lab in Cardiff. The show is described as The X-Files meets This Life which suggests that the man piotching it was frozen ten years ago and has only just been thawed.

Oh, and clearly Torchwood is an anagram of Doctor Who so he has to appear. Andrew Davies’ attempt to sex up sci-fi is continuing apace.
