Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

An arrogant detective who operates outside of the law and beyond the jurisdiction of the United Nations uses scavenged alien technology to solve crimes of both extraterrestrial and human origin in this Dr. Who spin-off starring John Barrowman. Operating from an underground base built on a rift between time and space, the enigmatic Captain Jack Harkness (Barrowman) leads a brave team of young adventurers in protecting the dominant yet fragile species that presides over planet Earth. In Harkness' world there are no rules, and what would seem like the impossible for most is all in a day's work. Whether it's fending off an otherworldly threat, exploring extraterrestrial technology, conducting a highly unorthodox autopsy, or simply protecting mankind from a highly contagious alien virus, there isn't a challenge out there that can make Captain Harkess and his fearless associates take pause. Assisting Captain Harkness in his many adventures are curious outsider Gwen Cooper (Eve Miles), charming medic Owen Harper (Burn Gorman), and computer specialist Toshiko Sato (Naoko Mori).
