but Jack was not part of Torchwood 1, so even thinking about it for a moment it doesnt work, yet alone thinking hard about it.
"They had Cybermen in Spain" - Ten, to Donna in Runaway Bride. They were all over the world, not just in that one centralized place. We just call it the CW battle for convenience, cuz that's where it ended.

Surely, Jack and his TW team were fighting the Cybs somewhere.
I suppose it is possible that Torchwood Hub, had a Cyber invasion of its own to deal with, but if we are going to over think it, wouldnt Jack have something to say about the whole plan, and the pretence that its ghosts?

I had so far made the choice not to comment about RTDs and Skins
That's why I say it works if you don't think too hard about it. Because when you do start really thinking about Jack and Torchwood, the whole thing falls apart. Secret agency that everybody knows about. Future technology. Time agency, with other time agents roaming about at whim. He is spying on the various Doctors, but they don't know about it. He wants to meet up with a Doctor that matches his timeline, but can't seem to find one in the various World Wars, when JFK was shot, during the Titanic adventure (both from "Rose"), or any of the other various points in time the Doctor visited Earth in the 20th century?

He had to wait 120 or so years before he could talk to him, but share everything with this same organization that's founded specifically to kill the Doctor?

RTD era --> big ideas = good. details = god-awful.
