Espenson says that balance of real fun and real stakes is what makes Torchwood unique. "It has that same thing I adored about Buffy, the light-heartedness, that sense that sci-fi doesn't have to mean the turgid space opera sort of thing, which everyone thinks sci-fi is even though it almost never is that," she says. "Sci-fi doesn't have to be grim. There's humor in Torchwood even though the stakes are sky-high."
