There is no 'Captain' rank in the Royal Air Force, The insignia that Jack Harkness bears on his RAF greatcoat is that of a 'Group Captain'. A Group Captain would never at any period in history be referred to only as 'Captain'. Within the structure of the RAF and on any official level he would always be referred to, and should refer to himself, as either 'Group Captain Harkness' or 'Group Captain Jack Harkness'.

Torchwood carries torch
24 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It would be difficult for any show to live up to the expectations placed on this show by the legions of Dr Who fans. But having watched it, the show has great promise, is entertaining and witty and yes at times a little bit like Xfiles meets Supernatural, but then what is wrong with that. So too, it shows a character who does not conform to "normal" social "values", but then perhaps it is time for TV to break the mold and show that everyone has a heart and everyone can be heartless equally, regardless of background, upbringing and preference. The team are a little dysfunctional for a group who have supposedly worked together for some time, which some may perceive as miscasting, but that is explained well by the secretive nature of their leader and their work. If I had to work in that situation I would be suspicious and play my cards close to my chest too. I think the cast are excellent. And for those who condemn shows on their first can please some of the people some of the time. I just hope you remember your condemnation the next time a studio exec cancels you favorite show mid season for no good (in your opinion) reason. Torchwood may not be YOUR thing....but it is mine...keep up the good work team!
