As seen on: "Torchwood" Mission: To protect the Earth (mainly England) from extraterrestrial threats. Worth the taxpayers' money? Yes. Under the leadership of Capt. Jack Harkness (John Barrowman, pictured), the Torchwood team took on any number of threats. In real life, the BBC-funded "Torchwood" had its taxpayer funds cut for the third season. It ran for five episodes under the title "Torchwood: Children of Earth," but got surprisingly high ratings and won multiple awards.
