Dead Man Walking

TARDIS Coordinates: February 20, 2008

What would you do if you woke up dead?

There’s a line in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” where some of the superheroes are speculating on the nature of Thor’s hammer, and what sort of science is actually controlling who can pick it up. 520 more words

Reset

TARDIS Coordinates: February 13, 2008

This is the second time I’ve done this. I’ve postponed watching Torchwood for too long, and now I need Jack to show up on schedule for his guest appearance on Doctor Who. 628 more words

You know, I actually kind of like Torchwood better like this.

Torchwood has entered the Matrix, apparently, and nothing is the way it was in the last episode. 531 more words

Meat

TARDIS Coordinates: February 6, 2008

It’s not lost on me that “Meat” must have been a hell of a challenge for the actors. Not only are they sharing screen time with a big thrashing wet piece of CGI, it’s arguably the first story in which they’re called upon to show any sympathy for the alien monster. 865 more words

Ah, crap, we’re going to be tormenting Tosh again.

I wonder what this sense is among the writers that the protagonists of Torchwood haven’t gone through sufficient shit in their time, that every episode they produce has to be a personal challenge to someone, and that every time they put a character through the wringer for the third or fourth time, they act like it’s some original device of narrative and these characters have never known suffering and hardship before. 498 more words

Sleeper

TARDIS Coordinates: January 23, 2008

Stupid question over here, if no one minds: has Torchwood thus far, in fifteen episodes, ever come across a GOOD alien? 507 more words

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

TARDIS Coordinates: January 16, 2008

Well, here we go again.

By that, I don’t just mean that we’re taking another resigned sigh and launching bravely into the second season of Torchwood. 580 more words
