Rajesh “Raj” Singh was a researcher and lab doctor at the Torchwood Institute.

During 2005 and 2006, Raj worked closely alongside Yvonne Hartman and Ianto Jones in investigating the contents of the sphere. On 26 March 2005, he worked overtime to help Yvonne during her investigation of alien murders in Cardiff. He fell asleep at his desk whilst waiting for her to call back and was awoken by Ianto. (One Rule)

Yvonne had Raj set his team to work on searching discarded hard drives for bank details so that it would help fund Torchwood operations. (The Law Machines)

Raj tended to Kara and three otheroperatives in the recovery room after they suffered psychic damage from Locker 15. (Locker 15)

In July 2007, he had the task of ascertaining the Void Ship’s purpose, but couldn’t, because according to all available instruments, the “Sphere” didn’t exist. He, along with every member of Torchwood, had undergone and passed psychic training. He wasn’t affected by the psychic paper’s low-level telepathic field, foiling Rose Tyler’s attempt to gather information. (Army of Ghosts) When the Cult of Skaro emerged from the Void Ship, he claimed personal responsibility for allowing it to happen and volunteered himself as the least important person present. Dalek Sec ordered him to kneel and requested information about current Earth history. Singh responded saying that he would comply but not compromise Homeland Security. Sec interrupted, revealing that speech was not required; instead, they extracted his brainwaves by placing their manipulator arms around his head. Singh screamed in agony. As The Daleks let go of Singh, his desiccated corpse fell down to the floor before them, much to Mickey and Rose’s dismay. (Doomsday)


In an alternate timeline in which John Hart took control of the British Empire and the Torchwood Institute, Singh advised against opening the Void Ship only for the King to order Yvonne to do so, resulting in the massacre of Torchwood One. (The Death of Captain Jack)


Rajesh Singh was intelligent and generally pleasant. He was a very brave and selfless man. He was direct and task-oriented. He seemed more annoyed by Rose’s infiltration than concerned, (Army of Ghosts) though when the Void Ship opened and war broke out on a worldwide scale, he realised the true gravity of what Torchwood had been doing. (Doomsday)

His selflessness tended to see him work overtime, much to the gratitude of Yvonne Hartman. He would refuse to leave his desk, which sometimes resulted in him falling asleep there. (One Rule)
