About Us


The Team



DJ ~Jack~ (Creator/Chief Editor/Writer/Graphic Artist)
I'm DJ, I’m creator and editor in chief of the website, and am owner of a Weevil – who can be quite a handful at times and has a penchants for Strawberry Ice Cream and chocolate. 
I’ve always been a fan of the Whoniverse ever since the Daleks invaded my living room and I watched my first episode from behind the sofa.  Daleks, Davros and bubble wrapped sleeping bags – yes, I was scared of the weirdest of creatures.
I’ve worked as an Extra in two independent films. Bad Blood, a zombie horror film which will be released on Netflix or Amazon Prime sometime soon. And Native Son starring Sean Harris of Prometheus. 
I enjoy writing for Project: Torchwood and always want to learn more about the people in front of and behind the camera. 







Mickie ~Toshiko~ (Head Graphic Designer)
My name is Mickie and I’m the Toshiko of Project: Torchwood and Head Graphic Designer which means we have two other graphic artists on the team who can shoulder some of the work, allowing me more time to put together the artwork for the Cover, the Episode Breakdown, and any other artwork required for covers that might require more technical detail than others.  I also create all the backgrounds that you see on our Twitter, Facebook and website.  I found myself part of the team after DJ (Jack) had seen one of my Torchwood wallpapers I’d posted on a Facebook group.  DJ wanted me to create the wallpaper for the blog and I also made the banner. After that, with regards to Project: Torchwood, the rest is, as they say, history. As well as Graphics I also cover the PR, spreading the word on social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Flikr.  http://pinterest.com/mickienewton/project-

John ~The Doctor~ (UK Locations Writer)
I am John Bond-Winstone also known as the Doctor. I'm from South Wales. I have been behind this project 100% and encouraged DJ to carry this forward. Well when I'm not playing Star Trek Online, I am studying to become a qualified teacher hopefully in Youth Work.
In my spare time I do some voluntary work with Cardiff Mardi Gras and I also crew at Showmasters Conventions. I also like chilling, reading sci-fi and fantasy books.  











Joshua - Resident Weevil (mascot)
Joshua doesn’t involve himself in the running of the website, but he does like to get involved in research and outings, although after losing him in the shopping mall when an ice cream vendor set up a stall selling a vast amount of Strawberry Ice cream, we’ve had to keep him on a tight leash since. He is a real handful and can be a menace to the rest of the team who complain of missing candy bars, fruit drops and chocolate and he’s not too good with alcohol either.  We now have a lock and pass code for the fridge!!!  




Echo Fain ~Dr Owen Harper~ (Writer/Graphic Designer)
I write, breathe, listen to music, and drink tea.  In between, I am a mum and a socially-inept cynic with too much education.  I became a fan of Torchwood after three decades of affection for Doctor Who when I was informed that someone out there was putting stories on television that looked like the sorts of thing I'd been writing for many years.  I studied time travel and its associated sciences at a very young age (8 years old) with the intentions of building a TARDIS and discovered that I possessed both the passion and talent for research even if I would never figure out how to build a working time rotor.  After so many years of writing without making any real effort at being published, I made the decision to start writing under my own name and began an honest attempt at being seen and read by the public.  This quickly led me to social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter and fanfiction, where I found Project Torchwood and various other science fiction magazines.  For Project Torchwood, I write reviews, fiction, and commentary articles.  In another universe, I'm writing an extensive LGBT-slanted space opera while pursing my life's only burning ambition...to wear a dressing gown 24/7 and live like Arthur Dent on the dream of finally getting a proper cup of tea.



Jeffrey Zyra ~5th Doctor~ (Who Reviewer)
I’m a lover of all things Doctor Who and science fiction.  I also love watching tons of TV shows and movies.  I love to read comic books and have done for as long as I can remember.  I’ve met a lot of people who make the comic books I read, at the numerous comic cons I’ve attended over the years.  I’m a huge fan of the Boston Sports teams and love it a lot when they beat the New York City teams.  You can find me on Twitter under the moniker of DR5WHO.

Reece Morris Jones (Who Reviewer)
I’m an office worker by day and a blogger by night.  I read, then I write, then I start reading again.  I also think far too much.  I enjoy running, and also wargaming, and working on an allotment.  Still a young ‘un I have hopes and dreams to become a writer one day.  In the meantime though I’m on the look out for more books and comics as The Cult Den’s Books and Comics Editor.  The more indie they are, the better.  I’m still rather new to the world of blogging but I’m always free for a chat, so hit me up.











Simon Mallinson (Target Zone/Who Reviewer)
My name’s Simon, I am a Geordie well partially, technically from County Durham but close enough. I am a Doctor Who Fan, Torchwood, Babylon 5, Star Wars and Star Trek.  Massive book lover, electronically have at least over a 100,000 books mostly science fiction.  Authors mainly Asimov, Heinlein, Clarke and Reynolds.  I go to conventions as much as I can, still trying to get that star struck look off me face.

The same applies for Doctor Who.

    1. Diolch! Torchwood as much as Doctor Who is a show worth keeping alive, there are still avenues to explore with this show and I'm not ready to give up yet. So while there are still fans out there with the passion to keep the flame alive, then we'll still be here feeding the fire!
