I'm from The Netherlands, and only a recent convert to all things Torchwood, and a little longer to Doctor Who.
Most importantly, Torchwood got me writing again for the first time in three years.
Currently working on several Torchwood stories, but posting only when I'm sure I'll finish. Seems only fair. Am a great fan of angsty or emotional stories, but usually stick to writing fluff. As far as Torchwood goes, I've just starting dipping a toe in the water.
