Torchwood is a television spinoff of the popular Doctor Who series produced by the BBC. Following the adventures of Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and his team. Based in Cardiff they are a part of Torchwood, a secret agency set up by Queen Victoria in the Doctor Who Episode "Tooth and Claw". Their primary mission is to monitor a spacial rift in and around Cardiff, fighting supernatural monsters and aliens in order to protect mankind.
The following weapons were used in the television series Torchwood:
Torchwood agents in the series are seen with compact M1911 pistols as their primary firearm. Yet, owing to the strict firearms controls in the UK and the reduced insurance cost during filming, modified Tokyo Marui Hi Capa 4.3 airsoft guns were used as stand-ins. Government operatives, UNIT soldiers and minor characters are also seen with the weapon.
In the Miracle Day episode End Of The Road, corrupt CIA agents loyal to Section Chief Friedkin carry Baby Hi-Capa 3.8's as their weapons. These are likely stand ins for genuine sub-compact 1911 pistols.
