Torchwood: The Complete First Season

 (TV) (2006)

Torchwood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Separate from the government, outside the police, beyond the United Nations, Torchwood sets its own rules. Led by the enigmatic, ever watchful Captain Jack Harkness, the Torchwood team delves into the unknown and fights the impossible. From an underground base built on a rift in time and space, the team responds to any alien threat - a meteorite crash landing, sightings of extra-terrestrial technology, an unusual autopsy report, the spread of a deadly alien virus... Everyone who works for Torchwood is young. Some say that's because it's a new science. Others say it's because they die young.

For more about Torchwood: The Complete First Season and the Torchwood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray release, see Torchwood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Burn Gorman, Gareth David-Lloyd, Mekhi Phifer, Lauren Ambrose

Torchwood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Sporting a 1080i, VC-1 encoding that averages about 25 Mbps, Torchwood looks pretty darn good on this Blu-ray release. Converted to 60i from the BBC's original rate of 50i HDV, the series has a "live" look about it that makes its sci-fi drama stories all the more effective. Detail is well-captured in Torchwood's visually diverse settings, from the verdant countryside, to the organization's dank underground headquarters, to the lush, romantic palette of World War II Cardiff. Flesh tones were very well balanced, and the textures of everything from cloth, to silky hair, to crumbling stone walls are rendered in good relief, with plenty of nuance present throughout Torchwood's mise–en–scčne. Black levels are nicely deep and rich, while the white effects of alien light and torn rifts are bright without displaying bloom problems. No compression artifacts were noticeable, and aside from the slight softness displayed due to the interlaced picture, Torchwood looks smart in high definition.


Torchwood: The Complete First Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Torchwood comes to Blu-ray with a DTS-HD High Resolution 5.1 track that is often quite impressive for a dialogue-heavy television series. The latter is clear and easily distinguishable; as a U.S. native, I had no trouble at all with the variety of U.K. accents, whether Welsh, Scottish, or anything in between. Mostly reserved to the center channel, the mix still follows characters nicely around a scene, using the left and right fronts accordingly when they are called for. The fronts are most often utilized for score playback; nicely rendered for the small screen by Ben Foster, musical cues can switch with ease from enchanting to creepy. Torchwood's subject matter makes for plenty of action and tense scenes, and a healthy amount of ambiance to enhance any given episode's mood is used often and effectively. I fully appreciated the lively and frequent use of the rears for residual sounds within a scene; the channels even picked up the odd bit of score here and there, as well. LFE was often more subtly mixed than booming, but it was well implemented and boosted the overall "feel" of the soundscape. Though not as fully uncompressed as its Master Audio cousin, the High Resolution mix on this first season of Torchwood was well-balanced and very effective, and I am relieved that the series was not relegated to a lossy Dolby Digital treatment.
