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

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

End of Days

You know, this could have gone worse.

I’ve tempered the complaints about explicit sex and violence that informed my opinion of Torchwood for almost ten years by realizing that not only is there not so much sex and violence as I’d first imagined, but that it acts as the shock tactic in some pretty good stories. 568 more words

This was a pretty optimistic day for Doctor Who. A week after the premiere of “The Runaway Bride,” the network broadcasts this episode and its followup, “End of Days,” as well as the Sarah Jane Adventures pilot “Invasion of the Bane.” So, at the dawn of 2007, the score is: one 43-year-old revived TV series, with its own unique and spectacular identity, one post-watershed spinoff, with a whole new cast and crew, and focusing on the second most intriguing character from the first season, and one children’s spinoff, based on a classic series character with her own agenda. 716 more words

Random Shoes

TARDIS Coordinates: December 10, 2006

The first season of Torchwood needed more episodes like “Random Shoes.”

Thinking back to 2006, I’m remembering the first season of Torchwood as being salacious, gory, and too much driven by the weaknesses of its cast to be entirely enjoyable. 459 more words
