Forum holiday – semi permanent

Hello everyone

I’ve decided to close the Forum to new posts, and that is why you will see it in Maintenance Mode.

Most of us moderators have little spare time these days, and moderating a Forum is just not something we have time for at the moment.

But our Facebook Group and Twitter will remain running as usual, and there will be periodic announcements made on our main web page here.

Torchwood Australia is still kicking around, just in a slightly different capacity. Doesn’t mean we have any less passion for Torchwood and Doctor Who than we did before, it is just that real life is interfering way more these days.

We hope you will continue to visit us on the Facebook Group, and feel free to post over there and chat to fellow members.

All the best to everyone…..

Cheers, Ruthy x

EXCITING news from Titan Comics!



Titan Comics is excited to announce that Doctor Who TV spinoff Torchwood is back, in an all-new ongoing comic series starring the daring Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.

Written by Captain Jack himself – John Barrowman – and Carole E. Barrowman, and with issues illustrated by Antonio Fuso (Drive, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) and Pasquale Qualano (Batman ’66, She Hulk, Harley Quinn), this spectacular original ongoing series is not to be missed.

In continuity with the new hit Torchwood audio dramas from Big Finish, as part of the official continuation of the Torchwood saga, the comic arrives in stores on July 6 – the week of Titan’s third annual Doctor Who Comics Day event – Saturday, July 9 2016.

The BAFTA-winning cult science-fiction drama by Doctor Who showrunner Russell T Davies, which aired for four successful seasons from 2006 to 2011, follows the exploits of Captain Jack, Gwen (Eve Myles – Broadchurch), and their team as they investigate the unusual, the strange, and the extraterrestrial.

The hotly anticipated Torchwood comic sees Captain Jack return to Cardiff to engage the help of the last person who expected to see him again, Gwen Cooper! A dark technology from a forgotten species has been claimed by a conspiratorial power… and in this collision between an ancient civilization and an all-new evil, the Earth itself may be forfeit! Only Jack, Gwen, and their allies from what remains of Torchwood hold the key to stopping a cataclysmic wave of destruction… On the road, on the run, and under fire – can Jack and Gwen put aside their differences and rebuild the heart of Torchwood… before its flame is stamped out forever?!

The debut issue comes with variant covers to collect from Doctor Who superstar artists including Tommy Lee Edwards (Tenth Doctor, Turf), Elena Casagrande (Tenth Doctor, The X-Files), Blair Shedd (Ninth Doctor), and Rod Reis (Doctor Who, C.O.W.L.)!

Retailers can order Torchwood #1 from the May edition of PREVIEWS. This new series is a must for Torchwood fans, who can find their nearest comic store at

Titan Comics offers astounding creator-owned comics and graphic novels from new and world-renowned talent, alongside the world’s greatest licensed properties and classic graphic novels remastered for brand-new audiences.

Hey Kids! Did Ya Miss Me???

Yes Captain Jack Harkness would say that iconic line, just like our old Forum is saying…..



Yes our beloved Torchwood Australia Forum is back and she is live.

Please head back over to the Forum, and see what has been happening.

I’ve been reorganising, archiving, and condensing the old girl.

Please note in future this Forum is primarily all about Torchwood and Doctor Who, and very little outside of that. I wanted to bring the Forum back to its core purpose. So the only spin off of Doctor Who on the Forum is of course Torchwood.

If you want to discuss other things like Sarah Jane etc, please do so on the Facebook group. Let’s endeavour to keep the Forum neat and tidy.

Anyways, enjoy my friends…..and keep posting – otherwise we cannot justify the expense of keeping the Forum open.

(if you have any problems posting or viewing, please PM me or email me at

Cheers, Ruthy.

Latest info for you…and a request :)

Hello friends,

As you all know, the Forum has been on hiatus this year, and we hope to try to reactivate it before this Christmas (fingers crossed).

In the meantime, you can always touch base with us via the Facebook group or Twitter account.

At this point though, I wanted to share something with you all, particularly for those members who live in Queensland Australia.

I have joined RSPCA as a buddy, as part of the buddy challenge.

Click on this link for more detail –

The idea of the challenge, is to join, be a buddy to one of their many lovely shelter animals throughout Queensland, and attempt to have them adopted within a certain period of time.

My buddy is Dexter the cat and he is absolutely gorgeous!

You can find Dexter’s details here –

If you or someone you know may like to have Dexter join their family, please pass on the information to them.

And perhaps you could also be a buddy just like me – I encourage all our animal loving members in Queensland to consider it.

Thanks guys….
