I have been watching Torchwood - Children of Earth these past few weeks, final was on last night. I have to say I have actually enjoyed these episodes. The 456 actually seem real, not like there is a bit of 'invisible string' making them work as was the case with a few past monsters.
The cast has been outstanding, and I'm much happier now that Monkey Face has gone! Sorry to any fans he might have, but frankly he irritated the bejesus outta me.
Anyway, last nights episode almost had the Scowly and I in tears, when Jack lost his bloke...so sad. However we cheered ourselves up by trying to guess the exact moment that Jack would give his 'born again' gasp - in earlier episodes this was a great galloping affair but in this one it was more a flutter.
I'm not sure when we will get our next 'does' of Torchwood, but am looking forward to it. I just wish there was some way that the programmers would put it on earlier at night. 10.30pm is a bit late for me during the week - I can't believe that there is any reason for it to be on so late unless there are still homophobes out there about the boy-action. Somehow for me this only adds to the programmes appeal - no idea why, and I know it's not the main part of the storyline. I get annoyed with hetero-stuff if I feel it detracts from the 'real' story (hence my difficulty in watching those ol' wetserns where the good guy gets the gal...), it's why some of the more recent Dr Who lines did my head in as much as I adore DT.
So, thumbs up so far for the Torchwood writers, looks like they finally took advice from some of you in blog-land and got their acts together. I am eagerly awaiting the next series...in fact, I'm fired up and jiggy....
