NOW HOW COME NO ONE TOLD ME "TORCHWOOD" WAS AN ANAGRAM FOR "DOCTOR WHO" I MEAN REALLY NOW FOLKS SERIOUSLY THROW ME A FRICKIN' BONE HERE
And "BAD WOLF" anagrams to FOLD WAB which must mean something!
The lovely kateorman
once suggested COW HOTROD as an alternative.
Also, K9 anagrams to ... 9K. But 9000 what?!
Or my personal favorite, WHOCTOR DO!
Didn't they open for the Scorpions on their 1989 tour?
...oh, huh. Well, I feel slow.

My goodness. It is. I have to say that I really didn't think about it that hard, nor was I looking for anagrams.

I thought it was common knowlege that they shipped Doctor Who episodes, on film, under the title "Torchwood" to keep people from lifting them and copying them before broadcast, and so, when they decided to have a nifty conspiracy to make a spinoff show about, they used that name.
Of course, now I wonder if they're going to ship "Torchwood" episodes under the anagram "Doctor Who".
Of course, "Blake's Seven" anagrams to "Eve Slabs Ken", and "Red Dwarf" anagrams to "Draw Fred." And "Vicar of Dibley" anagrams to "I File A VCR Body."
For some reason I knew "Torchwood" was Doctor Who's "Blue Harvest", but I didn't know why and I didn't notice the anagram.
One of those "OHHHHHHH" moments, y'know?

It was mentioned so extensively when Torchwood was originally announced that I thought the bone had already been thrown to you.
Just in case, here are some extra bones:
Bad wolf -> flaw bod
Tardis -> Rat's id
Rose Tyler -> Tyre loser
Jackie Tyler -> Tackily jeer
Mickey Smith -> Kitschy mime
Slytheen -> He's Yentl
