At the end of “Utopia” Professor Yana/The Master Regenerated, stole the TARDIS and left the Doctor, Martha and Captain Jack to the mercy of The Futurekind, but not before the good Doctor had performed some mysterious wizzy wiggy stuff with his Sonic Screwdriver.

“Utopia”

 Introduction

Well at the end of ‘End of Days’ we saw the good Captain distracted by the sound of the TARDIS engines and the bubbling of the canister containing the Doctors severed-hand and then the rest of the team coming back to the Hub to find him gone!

“Captain Jack Harkness”
And
“End of Days”
By Mickie Newton

Introduction

Remember the bumper birthday issue last month? You remember just how much was in it? Yes?!  Well it was because it was so huge that issue 13s Gadgets & Gizmos was left out. I was super busy making pretty covers for all that immense work we had. So, now we have reached the end of season one  with the two end of season stories ‘Captain Jack Harkness’ and  the final earth moving episode ‘End of Days’ and I have written a bumper addition of Gadgets & Gizmos. So what shall we be looking at in Issue 14?

“Combat
By Mickie Newton


Introduction

Well we have reached issue 12 and the world of fight club, sorry I mean “Combat” and we’re not allowed to talk about it. Nobody talks about “Combat” or is that Fight Club? Anywhoo, in this issue we will be looking at the Hacking Device, Jacks Vortex Manipulator/Wrist-strap and also Anti-weevil Spray.

Torchwood Gadgets and Gizmos
Out of Time” 50s Tech Then and Now
By Mickie Newton

Introduction

In this months issue we take another, slightly, different tact to the usual. Normally, when I write this article I look at the technologies seen either in the episode of focus, or in the case of tech light episodes I look at other technologies that appear somewhere in the series. But not in issue 11. This time I decided to delve elsewhere.

Introduction

In this months issue we will be only touching on our episode of focus 'Random Shoes' as there are no gadgets to focus on - for a sci-fi show Torchwood is very 'gadget light'. Instead  we will take a look at the object at the centre of the story; the Dogon Sixth Eye.

For this we need to spread our scope a tad and look at a couple of objects that are not seen in this episode, which is not only light on Gizmos etc but also light on Torchwood Team participation! So, we have instead, the Invisible lift, where we shall again be touching on, what we now affectionately call The Mothership,  Doctor Who and also the Cryochambers. Is this a gadget or gizmo I ask myself? Well the

Introduction

It’s De-ja-vue time peeps! Just as you thought it was safe to step back into the HUB, Suzie Costello has popped up again in issue 9’s episode of focus ‘They Keep Killing Suzie’ (damn right too you unpleasant lady!) But of course Suzie isn’t the only revisit, as we also have the return of the Resurrection Glove (Risen Mitten), which we shall skim over and then you can click on the provided hyper link to go back to issue’s 2’s article and we shall look more at the ‘Life Knife’ (where does Ianto come up with these names?). And finally we look at something a little off from the episode; the GPS used by Toshiko numerous times!

Torchwood Gadgets and Gizmos

Introduction

It has to be said, and anyone who has seen all the episodes of Torchwood will know that there are some episodes that lack the tech we expect to find in sci-fi and an example of this is Countrycide. It has to be the least techy of all three series (there’s going to be another out there somewhere I am sure). So I have decided now to change how I do things a little as trying to find the gadgets for every episode is very hard if not impossible, especially if there are none!  In this and future issues I shall try to pull various gadgets and techy things from all points of the series; so touching on just a few bits here and there. If an episode we are focusing on in the issue has plenty of techy stuff then the episode name will head the gadgets and gizmos article.

In this issue I am focusing on three such items. two specific items from the episode ‘Greeks Bearing Gifts’ which are The Pendant and The Transporter and also the hand-gun weapons, both Jack’s and the teams.
