It was pointed out to me that TORCHWOOD is an anagram of Doctor Who. Personally I think the similarity ends there.
I have perservered with this programme but to be honest I find it...light. Sure Cap'n Jack is pretty but the storyline doesn't really grab me. Most of it is so...obvious? Yes, obvious. Annoying Gwen and Brash Owen...yep, saw that coming (so to speak,the servile fella with the weird name? I call him Alfred...well, his part is a bit Batman and Robin isn't it? And of course the long-suffering Toshiko. I guess I was expecting so much more from this programme, especially considering the numerous references to Torchwood through out the Dr Who series. Sorry, for me it's 'close but no sigar' for this one. I'll keep watching it tho' as the Scowly Teen and I sit up together to watch it and she likes to snuggle up and for the Scowly Teen that's a plus I'll take!!
