Wikipedia:WikiProject Doctor Who/Torchwood

Welcome to the Torchwood task force!

Style guide[edit]

from WP:WHO

To keep a consistent style to the articles, these guidelines should be followed.


The article name, when first mentioned, should be bold.

Where mentioned in subsequent text, story titles should be "in quotes" and reference should be made to the year it was broadcast.

British English spelling should be used, and dates should place the number first. With the exception of episode synopses and ongoing events, the past tense should be preferred in the main article text.

Articles should be categorised in the correct subcategory at Category:Torchwood.

Quotes in general are not encyclopaedic, and are better added at Wikiquote, for example at q:Torchwood.

List of Torchwood episodes

This infobox is an example of how Template:Doctorwhobox should be filled in. Production codes should be used where available.

Format for episode articles should be:

  1. A general description of what the episode/serial is and when it was first broadcast.
  2. A teaser Synopsis
  3. A more fully detailed Plot.
  4. Cast section with the name of the character followed by an em dash ( or —) followed by the name of the actor
  5. Any additional miscellaneous sections, if necessary.
  6. References
  7. External links, to include a link to the BBC on-line cast list.

Screen captures for episode/serial articles should be put in the info box and should be 275px wide. We should generally try to limit ourselves to one screen capture per page, to safely stay within the bounds of fair use, however exceptions are possible within the boundaries of the fair use criteria.

What do we include?[edit]

The main criteria for inclusion should be notability. That being said, to avoid clutter, confusion, we should note the following.

Minor topics[edit]

Some articles on what might be termed minor topics, e,g. monsters, villains, planets or devices which only appear in a single episode are better placed in a list.

Articles can be demerged if they grow very large. Some very minor characters are probably not worth writing about, and it would be preferable to write the plot synopsis of the episode in which they appear.
