What the comm IS NOT:
A place to soapbox about the direction of the show post series 2.
A place to be rude about the show's creator or any of the actors/actresses.
A place to campaign about getting certain characters back on the show.
A place to bash characters.

What is classed as Classic Torchwood?
For the purpose of this community it Classic Torchwood is defined as anything pre Torchwood series one, series one, series two and the web content for them from the BBC, the tie in novels that are set pre series 3, audio books, and radio plays (with the exception of House of the Dead), canon Torchwood Doctor Who Stolen Earth/Journey's End, and reference books like The Torchwood Archives. Basically anything Torchwood that is set before series three or is set in a future where series 3 didn't happen.
By majority decision, http://community.livejournal.com/tw_classic/1336.html it was decided to allow Rhiannon Evans and family, as they are in the book 'The Torchwood Archives' to be included as characters welcome at this comm. (The surname was changed to Davis in series 3 and as such that version of Rhiannon and family isn't within the remit of this comm.)
Fan fic guidelines:
We are slash, femmeslash, het and gen friendly.
All genres, pairings, age ratings, and themes are welcome.
Crossovers with any other fandom are all okay too.
Fics set after series 2 are okay provided that they don't include mention later series of the show.
