    Founded by Queen Victoria in 1879, the Torchwood Institute has long battled against alien threats to the British Empire - work done in secret, under the cover of darkness. But once in a while, an outsider will find something out about this covert organisation, and Torchwood Archives offers a rare glimpse into what was almost one of Torchwood's most serious breaches of security: an expose that never saw the light of day. Until now.

    These previously unpublished writings of investigative journalist Warren Martyn provide in-depth background on Torchwood personnel, case files on alien enemies of the Crown and descriptions of extra-terrestrial technology collected over the years, uncovering more about the world of Torchwood than ever previously known. Discovered by Ianto Jones just before publication, the book was kept in Torchwood as a reference for personnel - and a warning against future security breaches.

WARREN MARTYN is an experienced journalist and broadcaster who has written books on diverse subjects, from the TV sitcoms The Simpsons and Frasier to exposés of the Kennedy dynasty, the long-lasting effects of the use of fluoride in water in the 1970s and a history of North Sea Gas.
