krakenwakes has an epiphany:

Why is Torchwood such utter pants? Simple, it's a P. G. Wodehouse story which they keep ruining with extraneous aliens. The plot is meant to go...

Handsome but vapid Jack Harkness gets into a dashed difficult situation when impossibly gloopy policewoman Gwen, (she thinks that aliens just need a hug and that the stars are god's daisy chain) misinterprets his constant following her around as a sign of unstinting devotion, when in reality he is just trying to steal her hat. Can newt fancying halfwit Owen Harper be persuaded to propose to her? Fortunately Jack's faithful and brainy valet, Ianto Jones - he eats a lot of fish, hence the smell - is at hand to smooth matters over. Even he, however may not be able to cope with the machinations of 'Tosh' Sato who requires her uncle's consent in order to be able to marry the curate, who has just been converted to a cyberman and is up before the bench at Bosher Street magistrates on a charge of stealing Gwen's helmet.
-- Context is above the govenment, through the police and beyond a joke
