Doctor Who

The Empty Child (1) - S1-E9

Corrected entry: Capt. Jack Harkness introduces himself as "American Volunteer, 133 Squadron, Royal Air Force". It is an historical fact that there was such a squadron, made up of American volunteers.but it was not formed until August 1941. The events in "The Empty Child" and "The Doctor Dances" are supposed to have taken place during the "Blitz" on London, which lasted from October 1940 to May 1941. Capt. Jack could not be a member of an RAF squadron that didn't yet exist.

Correction: Capt. Jack is from the future, as is Rose and the Doctor. There are many possibilities, e.g., looking in history to find a random designation and found one from the wrong time, or it might even be his designation from the future.

Quotes

Doctor: So, that's the trap. Or the test or the final judgment, I don't know. But if I kill you, I kill her. Except that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she's just a victim. But I've seen a lot of this universe. I've seen fake gods and bad gods and demi-gods and would-be gods - out of all that - out of that whole pantheon - if I believe in one thing... Just one thing... I believe in her.

Trivia

"Torchwood" is an anagram for Doctor Who. Russell T Davies came up with it during the filming of Series 1 to label the tapes in order to prevent theft and potential leakage, and decided to use the name in the show proper.
