Just finished watching the first installment of “Torchwood: Miracle Day“. I like. Just enough backstory for those unfamiliar with the show, but nothing lost really from before. Interesting that they mention “the 456“, so that’s not been forgotten. I’m not sure Jack would have recovered as much, emotionally, as he seems to have done, but other than that, things look good. Will be interesting to see what the cause of “the miracle” turns out to be.

OK, I’m jumping on the bandwagon and posting this, b/c it’s, as the Doctor would say, “Brilliant!”. Only wish they’d done the kiss in an episode. Who knows, there’s still time. John’s reacting like a squeeing fangirl, though, just makes the whole thing.

Interesting that my last post included the Captains Jack kissing on Torchwood. Coincidence?

Children of Earth

So the Torchwood mini-season Children of Earth aired on the BBC last week. It airs on BBC America (which I don’t get) starting next week. So I looked around online, and was able to watch it, ’cause I didn’t want to wait for Ghu knows how long. It’s the first of the new Who or Who-related shows that I didn’t look up ahead of time to find out what happened, so experienced it without knowledge or preconceptions.


It was… amazing. Funny in parts, but mostly very dark. Not what I expected at all, constantly surprising. I won’t spoil it for anyone, but be prepared for shocks. Some stuff happened I really hated, but dramatically, it was appropriate. And on the up side, more naked/nude Captain Jack. See it, as soon as you can. There’s talk of another season, and I hope there is one, but I don’t know how they’ll pull it off.

Alright, the story so far. David Tennant is leaving Doctor Who at the end of the year. Because he was doing Hamlet and Love’s Labours Lost with the Royal Shakespeare Company last year, his last season is a foreshortened one, with only five stories. Two have aired in England: The Christmas special The Next Doctor (funny, sad, sweet and steampunky) and Planet of the Dead on Easter weekend (a good trad story). The Waters of Mars will air in November, and the final story will be a two-part Christmas special. This’ll be the first time that it’s been a two-parter. It’ll also be when Matt Smith appears as the Eleventh Doctor. I’m not sure about him, but I’ve not seen anything he’s done. Still, with Steven Moffat taking over running the show, I’m expecting good things.

Torchwood is doing a five-part story in July, called Children of the Earth. Dunno why Torchwood’s having a shorter season. *sigh*

At least it looks like The Sarah Jane Adventures will have a normal season this autumn. Plus it was recently announced that Tennant will appear on the show, doing a full story, not just a cameo, so that’s sneaking in an extra bit for him, which is terrif!

There’s also a cute mini-Who story courtesy of John Barrowman’s show Tonight’s the Night. You can see it here.

I think that about covers it for now. Stay tuned…
