The 456 Regulation was a law enacted in the aftermath of the 456 incident in Great Britain. It declared the members of Torchwood Three officially deceased, although Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper were actually still alive. Its purpose was to hide their presences on Earth, as some British powers still saw them as a major threat to the welfare of the country and sought to take their lives. (TV: The New World)
