I think the second series was better than the first, the final episode was rather sad.

Did anybody else listen to the one off special on Radio Four yesterday?

I thought it was pretty good considering it was an "event special" and had no pictures tongue

I think the link will work for a week although I don't know it it works outside the UK.

Question - was "Random Shoes" supposed to be completely incomprehensible or am I just not British enough for it to make sense?

Hokay, so I'm starting to watch this show, so far i've seen the first ep, but i want to also watch the eps of Dr Who which have Cap'n Jack/Major Torchwood stuff. Perhaps just the eps before Torchwood Started.
- The Empty Child and The Doctor Dances
- Tooth and Claw

Which other eps would be crucial?

theeeenks.

I think there's one where he gets vaporised and then re-constituted by a Dalek at the end of the first season of the new Doctor Who series... like a Thingmaker Chill-o-Tron! smile

What I think are crucial Doctor Who eps with Jack/ Torchwood:

Captain Jack:

Series 1:
The Empty Child/ Doctor Dances
Boom Town
Bad Wolf/ Parting of The Ways

Series 3:
Utopia/ Sound of Drums/ Last of The Time Lords

Torchwood Stuff:

Series 2:
Tooth and Claw
Army of Ghosts/ Doomsday


Though this is all off the Top of my head and it is 2:30 am here I believe that, that is a complete list of all important Jack episodes and Torchwood. I hope that is helpful Chay.

I believe they are about the same time. Torchwood started around the same time as series 3 of Doctor Who. I was just watching an episode the other day where Capt. Jack has disapeared for a few days around the same time as the last 3 eps of series 3 of DW. But they aren't vital to see.

OWEN! :O So he's sorta dead, but not quite, and he can drop out of the show at any given moment.... awesome.

Also, in "Adam", before the ep had even started, it was on the "Torchwood: protecting the world against..." thing, and i paused it cause i saw the dalek guns from DW, and saw some guy I'd not seen before and was like... "Hey, thats not been in the show!" It's awesome that they did that smile

ALSO, GREY! That's who spike was talking about!

I watched it last night, it was pretty good. Nice to see one story is being spread over five episodes, like classic Doctor Who

It was amazing! Also Juliet, it was "We are coming, we are coming, we are coming... back"

New the old dude would be the kid from the very beginning. Hilarious that Ianto lost the car. Tonight's eps is going to be great! Hope Jack isn't all burnt and gross for the whole ep.

My god this show is brilliant. Day three was bloody tense. Terrifying that jack gave them as "Gifts" before. I'm trying to work out whether the PM is just a spineless dick, or something more sinister.

I missed all of this week's episodes so stayed up til 2 last night catching up on the iPlayer. In fear of sounding like a critic who makes up quotes for the back of the DVD box, this series has been gripping, full of twists, and really dark. Tonight's episode was just brilliant, particularly the scene with Frobisher's "requisition". BAFTA really can't get away with sweeping sci-fi under the carpet with quality series like this.

One thing that really surprised me was the amount of screen time given solely to dialogue. The scene in Day 3 where Frobisher and the 456 are talking is full of lengthly dramatic pauses, which is something BBC One programmes can't usually get away with -- I'm surprised Davies wasn't told to get the talking over with in two minutes and have the characters spend the rest of the episode cooking up a huge explosion. Or better yet, viewers get to VOTE on the outcome.

This was easily the best Torchwood story to date, I hope they stick to this format for future series. Although if they have another series they'll have to start recruiting more team members.

Looks like someone from BBC America let the cat out of the bag:

http://www.comicmix.com/news/2009/07/25/exclusive-torchwood-picked-up-for-another-season-by-bbc/

One assumes that Jack and Gwen will be back, though after the end of Children of Earth, who knows. It's also not been confirmed whether it will be a full series or another miniseries. Russell T Davies has been previously quoted as saying that another full series was ready to go pending viewing figures on Children of Earth, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

Edit: There's a lot of highly entertaining dribble in the comments below that very short article as well!

RTD said at comic con that another season is likely to be another single story thing, like children of earth, rather than a "monster of the week" format. But he didn't know whether that meant another miniseries, or just a season that was focused on one story.

I kinda like the monster of the week thing. I loved children of earth, but i don't know if i could handle something that intense so soon again.

It was different watching Day 5 with Ianto dying at the end of the last episode but Children of Earth was still a really good story.

No. It kind of added a different side to the episode with Ianto not there.

Black is the new black. Not pink. Or red and grey. Black.

So has anybody seen the first episode of Miracle Day? Was really good I do like the agent Rex Matheson, Love how Gwen keeps shooting the bad guys while she holding her baby and I totally cringe at the body of the alive burnt guy.

I watched it, it was...alright. Interested to see where they go with the concept, but also worried that the writers aren't really thinking it through enough. For example, they mention that the biggest problem they'd face wouldn't be overcrowding, but rather running out of food...but if nobody can die, why is that a problem? Unless of course their bodies will start to wither away and decompose while they stay alive...I suppose that wouldn't be too pleasant.

Well if you saw that scene with the guy who had been essentially decimated by the blast...

People can be hurt, they just can't die. Which stands to reason that they still need food and water. Dying of dehydration has got to be nasty, even more so if you can't actually die.

I'm really enjoying it. It's super american, but I do like it.

I sort of agree with Josh about not thinking it through, but i think there are a whole bunch of possibilities. Maybe What's'er'faces line of "There's no way to predict this stuff" was a bit of a comment on that?

I think society would have fallen apart pretty quickly if no one was dying.
