Torchwood: The Encyclopedia Official Cover

BBC Books have recently revealed the cover for the upcoming Torchwood: The Encyclopedia, written by Garry Russell, which will be released around the United Kingdom and Ireland this October. Torchwood: The Encyclopedia details everything that Torchwood has been involved with ever since the founding of Torchwood back in Nineteenth century Scotland to the events of the Twenty First century in which everything changed.

Torchwood first made its appearance in the Tenth Doctor story Tooth and Claw in which a Werewolf waited in the Torchwood House waiting to bite Queen Victoria who later founded Torchwood. Torchwood then went on to make an appearance in Army of Ghosts/Doomsday which saw the destruction of Torchwood One in the Battle of Canary Wharf.

Below is the official synopsis for Torchwood: The Encyclopedia.

Founded by Queen Victoria in 1879, the Torchwood Institute has been defending Great Britain from the alien hordes for 130 years. Though London's Torchwood One was destroyed during the Battle of Canary Wharf, the small team at Torchwood Three have continued to monitor the space-time Rift that runs through Cardiff, saving the world and battling for the future of the human race.

Now you can discover every fact and figure, explore every crack in time, and encounter every creature that Torchwood have dealt with. Included here are details of: The secret of the Children of Earth; Operatives from Alice Guppy to Gwen Cooper; Extraterrestrial visitors from Arcateenians to Weevils; The life and deaths of Captain Jack Harkness, and much more. Illustrated throughout with photos and artwork from all three series, this A-Z guide provides everything you need to know about Torchwood.

BBC Books will release Torchwood: The Encyclopedia for the price of £14.99 around the United Kingdom and Ireland on the First of October. The First of October will also see the release of Torchwood: Consequences, Torchwood: Risk Assessment plus Torchwood: The Undertakers Gift from BBC Books for the price of £6.99 around the United Kingdom and Ireland.
