Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood series 4: Miracle Day

The New World Bill Pullman was terrible in that intro scene. I thought I was done with Russell T. Davies’ obsession with talking head news reports. This season and one more season of Sarah Jane and then no more Davies. Why is his lawyer not having this discussion with the guy from the Governor’s office? It’s a trap, Gwen. Running away from Jack is always a good idea. That’s a shitty doctor who wants to cut off someone’s head. I don’t think the CIA can extradite Torchwood. Rendition Why the hell are Cardiff police helping? So is he going to heal? Wayne Knight is in this? This CIA agent is… Read More »Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood series 4: Miracle Day

Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood: Children of Earth

Tonight’s The Night This is a mini-episode of Doctor Who that aired between “Planet of the Dead” and series 3 of Torchwood. Since it’s Jack in the TARDIS, I’m going to lump it in with Torchwood. That was terrible, until David Tennant showed up. Day One It’s Malcolm fucking Tucker! Aka, the Doctor! Rhys is always an asshole, even to children. Does everyone in Cardiff know about Torchwood and what they do? Those people in a hospital not wearing masks is wrong. I’m too surrounded by COVID. The laser sutures should be commercialized. Someone’s in Vancouver. Vancouver is great. Would be so much better if Martha was able to be… Read More »Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood: Children of Earth

Doctor Who Story 198 – The Stolen Earth & Journey’s End

The Stolen Earth The milkman looks like Spike. Are there still milkmen in Britain? Someone stole Earth. Martha! Wilf is the best companion. Good news, Rose is there to save the day! They all got into the opening credits, that’s nice. Russell Davies loves newscasters. Really? This is what she bothers with? The Earth has been moved and spaceships are en route, and she’s worrying about looters? Jealous Ianto. Martha is on a bluetooth headset with Jack, yet the general she’s conversing with in person hears Jack telling her not to do it. Wilfred with the paintball gun is fun. “Do you have a webcam?” “She wouldn’t let me, says… Read More »Doctor Who Story 198 – The Stolen Earth & Journey’s End

Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood series 2

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang I’ve gotta say, the old lady saying “Bloody Torchwood,” might be my favourite part of the series. SPIKE! He breezed into that bar. Gwen needs to tell Jack that he needs to be honest with her if she’s ever going to trust him again. Oh fuck you, Jack! Stop telling people that your history doesn’t matter. The stupid western vibe is ridiculous, but I enjoy it. Glad Doctor Who has some good make-outs, thanks to Torchwood. Oh, Ianto is having none of Jack’s bullshit. Maybe not, he did accept his date. Aww, he killed Jack. :( Is it good to throw a bomb into the rift?… Read More »Doctor Who Story xx – Torchwood series 2

Doctor Who Story x – Torchwood series 1

Everything Changes That theme is terrible. Now that I’ve seen Gwen, I’m remembering how much I hate her boyfriend/husband/whatever. Jack! She’s holding a coffee, the dude, just asks if he can have it. “There’s no procedure any more, it’s a fucking disgrace.” Yeah, you’re right. Don’t take other people’s drinks. Hahaha, Jack doesn’t know how to pronounce estrogen. I’m watching a show with Susie in it, This Way Up. Watching it because of Aisling Bea. She’s great. Ahh, there’s the terrible boyfriend/husband/whatever. Gwen is weirdly hot in a white collared shirt and tie. It was midday, why was there a bar fight at that time? I bet her long hair… Read More »Doctor Who Story x – Torchwood series 1

Doctor Who Story 159 – The Unquiet Dead

Episode I am not looking forward to this one. I remember it being the worst of the first season. It was a great decision on the crew of the 2005 show to do a teaser before the credits. It’s nice to get a tense moment with the theme music coming in on top of it. That’s a flimsy coffin. I’d ask for my money back from Sneed. “The stiffs are getting lively again!” is a great line. I never loved Rose, but I do like her sense of wonder. The ghostly vapours actually look better than one would expect. Companions always getting themselves in trouble. The Doctor shouldn’t leave his… Read More »Doctor Who Story 159 – The Unquiet Dead
