When the Time Lords escaped their deaths they were forced to reopen the doors and walls they'd left shut during the Time War. With all of the universe - and even other universes - now able to enter our universe, chaos reigns supreme. Now that inter-dimensional travel is a simple hop-skip-jump away, many factions are looking to profit from the extra-galactic material, tools, weapons, and aliens that are 'washing up' on planets like Earth, Peladon, and others with an active Rift.
Composed of a (somewhat uneasy) alliance between the fragmented High Council, the overtaxed War Council, survivors from an attempt by Romana to save a handful of their people known as the Hand of Time, the remnants of the Time Lord intelligence branch (known as the Celestial Intervention Agency), the various civilian interests such as the Shobogans and the Far Outsiders and, finally, the Sisterhood of Karn, the Time Lord's are held together by a loose connection of affiliations, attempts at back-stabbing, fear of discovery, and - most importantly - the General.
With Torchwood 3 supposedly obliterated and most of the rest of the Torchwood branches gone to ground or wiped out, Torchwood has gone almost completely silent. Torchwood London is one of the only functioning groups remaining. With most other branches either looking out only for themselves or involving themselves in petty wars with UNIT and the Forge, most people - even their own agents - don't hold much hope for the future of the organization. Unfortunately, with the walls of reality healed and multiple extra-dimensional incursions coming through the rift, Torchwood is one of the only groups with technology capable of protecting Earth. Unfortunately, they lack the cohesion or people needed.
Diplomatic issues between Torchwood and UNIT have never been at (what most would call) a 'high' point - but if you wanted to find a low point... well, this would be it. Scrambling to deal with issues such as the Cardiff rift and the recent incursion attempts from the Monks and the Mistress, UNIT doesn't really have the resources or time to deal with Torchwood, especially since Torchwood isn't unified - with several of their branches having seemingly gone rogue and looking to simply profit off the chaos.
Looking to profit from the sudden hole in the fabric of reality, the Forge has been strengthening its resolve and power base. They're looking to invade and replace agents within Torchwood and UNIT and - if possible - various governments of the world.
The Time Agency
Comprised of a loose affiliation of former and current agents, the Time Agency has been trying to initiate diplomatic overtures with the Time Lords in the hope of gaining access to the expertise and affiliations they shared in the distant past. They've also been attempting to reign in temporal and inter-dimensional incursions from both outside and inside our universe.
