* WithLyrics: Thanks to Jack's BigDamnHeroes moment in ''Countrycide'' where he rams his way through a wall with farming vehicle, the string riff that forms his Leitmotif was given the lyrics ''"Here comes Jack in a bloody great tractor!"'' by fans.

* AgentsDating: Captain Jack Harkness has been known to create sexual tension with anyone he [[RunningGag so much as says "hello" to]], but it's even worse with his Torchwood agents. His gun-use demonstration with Gwen was full cuddling, he makes innuendo out of just about everything they come across, he officially asks out Ianto while they're on a mission, Ianto's recruitment involved getting very turned on after the two erotically fall all over each other while attempting to catch the eventual TeamPet, Gwen's caught them playing "naked hide-and-seek" in the hub at least once, Martha kissed at a missions' end just because "everyone else has had a go", and Jack's fond of handing out overly-sexual kisses of life on the job. And that's not even scratching the surface....

* BuryYourGays: Parodied/played with. Jack's ability to die and be ressurected allows him to invoke and subvert this trope over and over.

-->'''Jack:''' You people and your sad little categories.



* IfItsYouItsOkay:
--->'''Ianto:''' It's not all men. It's just him.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The show has a character ask if Weevils might be mutating and thus becoming immune to the Weevil spray. So far so good. Then the BattleButler adds "or evolving".
** Actually those two are the same, since mutation is how evolution happens. And there is strong selection pressure in Cardiff since Weevils not spray resistant get caught and don't breed. They'd have to reproduce quickly for that to matter, but there ''are'' a ton of them...

** Suzie's turn to the dark side and ensuing death also counts, since the promo material (very deliberately) made it look like she was to be a sixth main protagonist.

* YouCantKillWhatsAlreadyDead: Subverted in the second season after Owen is reanimated. True, blood loss or damage to vital organs can't kill him anymore, but he doesn't heal either and doesn't feel any pain to prevent him accidentally damaging himself. As demonstrated when he accidentally slices his hand open with a scalpel and has to sew it back together.
