Those who expect this to be another doctor who, don't expect to much, it's clearly a low budget BBC production, but it is excellent in the entertaining aspect.
The problem with the voting on this series is that it's going to be driven by Doctor Who viewers which will expect something completely different, I for one dislike Doctor Who but love Torchwood, why? because it's far more like Spooks than Doctor Who.
Really not suitable for children, full of sex references and the odd scene of the dirty deed itself. It does show a good example of modern Britain with not just it's main characters but also it's extra's (bar the actually bad guys), it shows the drinking culture, the equality we now see in every aspect of life and sadly the growing chav culture.
