Having started as a fairly standard crossover between the two fandoms, following the path of the Harry Potter books, it becomes more complex. For one thing, Team Torchwood don't immediately get involved with Harry and company, and have their own goals and their own adventures, and they still work with the non-magical world, usually via Jack's past self.

* {{Badass}}: Most of the main cast. Particular marks to Jack, who easily holds off Bellatrix with only SuperReflexes and 3rd year spells for 5 minutes, allowing Sirius to snipe her with a stunner. Moody notes admiringly that he has serious combat experience and that it took 12 top Aurors to take her down last time.
** Moody references this incident later, saying its why Jack's one of the Seven Potters.
