Torchwood/Doctor Who fans, this outfit look familiar? LOL

Zoe: Who are you supposed to be?
Billy: Captain Jack Harkness.
Zoe: Yeah, in your dreams.
Micheal: You are about as much fun as a divorce. Which isn't a bad idea!
KITT: I want custody of me!

Can someone explain to a non torchwood fan like myself, why is this a big deal?

We have some footage of Billy in costume here: http://knightrideronline.com/news/2008/ ... lusive.php and a small clip to come of him talking about his costume.

Torchwood is only shown here on BBC America, so if you've seen the show, or even know of the show, then it's an added treat.

That, and when Halloween comes around, you expect to see the usual suspects, like Superman, Batman, or in this year's case The Joker. To have Billy come in as Jack shows that the producers are fans as well.

Now if we can get Zoe to dress up like Gwen Cooper... :D

That and I think Billy could actually pull of The Tenth Doctor better... ;)

It's just funny. GST has talked about Torchwood a bit. (if I remember correctly) And some have noticed similiaries between TW and KR. Mostly small stuff that people who are not fans of Torchwood would notice.

And it was the first thing I thought of when I saw the picture. I'm not really a fan of Torchwood, myself. I just watch it for Jack. 8B

oh I hope they don't try to make it like Torchwood, absolute. That aside, it is amusing to see Billy as Jack! :D

I still like Tom Baker as Dr. Who...he was the best one!

Ok TORCHWOOD is the spin off show from the popular British show Doctor Who, there is a Wikipedia entry here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torchwood) and the official TORCHWOOD site here (http://www.bbc.co.uk/torchwood/)
Protecting the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law.

TORCHWOOD, before becoming a spin off TV show was the anagram used to disquise video tapes of Doctor Who when they were sent through the post, prior to airing...

Jack Harkness is an American sounding character in the show, although the actor is apparently originally Scottish...

I see no reason why the Doctor couldnt have an accent other than one from England...

You are getting the actors / Characters confused.

Dr Who played by Dave Tennet is Scottish

John Barrowman who plays John Harkness is also Scottish born in Glasgow, Scotland, and raised in Joliet, Illinois

So when they film episodes of Torchwood, do you reckon they disguise the rushes tapes by writing "DOCTOR WHO" on them? :lol:

I can seriously think of a multitude of series that I'd rather the KR producers draw influence from rather than Torchwood.

It really just isn't, well, very good.

let me clear this up, he wearing what seems to be the iconic coat of Jack Hartness who plays a charming handsome alien fighter who cannot die anyway possible, he started on Doctor who but got his own show called tourchwood inwhich he leads a team of people to search out alien phenomenon.

maybe they'll turn the Kitt Cave into a Tourchwood site?

Yeah, if he wants to score points with me, THAT'S who he should try for. I kind of like Captain jack, but can't get into Torchwood to save my life.
KITT: I walked right into that one, didn't I?
Michael: More like Turbo Boosted.

Billy as Torchwood's Jack and Zoe as Heroes' Claire. Shows you what the writers are watching huh?
Next let's hope someone doesn't try to potray Smallville's Clark (or Billy trying to potray Jimmy Olsen?)

Who would be Clark and would they just walk around with a dopey look on their face, possibly holding back tears while having the mental capacity of a mentally challenged chimp?
