October 22 in Sci-Fi History: Torchwood!

Contributed by

It was on this day in 2006 that Torchwood premiered. And let’s take a moment to ask ourselves, has anything ever been the same?

A spin-off existing in the Doctor Who Universe, Torchwood followed the story of Time Lord Captain Jack Harkness and his merry band of helpful do-gooders.

Also, the love story between Jack and Ianto? Come on.

If you haven’t found a way to binge the series, it is ABSOLUTELY worth diving into as soon as possible. Perhaps in celebration of a couple sci-fi and fantasy birthdays?

Because Christopher Lloyd was born on this day in 1938.



And Jeff Goldblum was born on this day in 1952.

Tomorrow: Swoon along with us to Ryan Reynolds.
