Torchweek

Torchweek was, quite litterally, brilliant. It was everything this Doctor Who series should be, rather than four probably mediocre (god knows the last one was) episodes spread through the year. It made me miss my passion for Doctor Who (which dwindled a lot after that last episode) and it really made me miss the universe in general.

It was also everything Torchwood should have always been. It was dark and wonderful and depressing and brilliant, with nary a sex alien in sight. I'd talk about it more, but everything's already been said by now. It was wonderful.

Yeah, I marathonned it myself. I missed it all week so I watched them back to back on Saturday. Series one was silly, series two was pretty good but this last series blew it outta the water. It's SUCH a shame but if they did bring it back, it might as well be a whole new show...

Worth watching then, I take it?

I haven't had time to watch it yet, but apparently it's up on iPlayer 'til Friday, so no worries there. :)

I'm far from the biggest fan of Torchwood you'd find, but yeah, CoE was good. By episode 4 it was even GREAT. If it was cut down to about two hours with most of the actual Torchwood taken out and more grown-ups doing important things I would probably be ecstatic. But I am already pretty much in love with Peter Capaldi so. I MAY BE BIASED.

Oh, Peter, let me count the ways I love you, but quietly and in my head because you are thirty years older than me and in some ignorant minds that would be a wrong and creepy situation

Oh yes, he was extraordinary in it. I already loved him for The Thick of It/In the Loop as an amazing comedy actor, but I was almost weeping in the first scene he was talking to the alien. Just that uninterrupted scene was awesome. gah.

THAT WOULD BE AMAZING. Oh man, do it. Some people in the Torchwood thread on the comedy forum I read came up with some choice lines Malcolm might address the 456 with. I was in stitches. I love that Scottish bastard.

Assuming unregistered people can read this here you go: http://boards.nxhosting.org/index.php?topic=21169.msg1107172#msg1107172 there are three or four posts. If you read any more of that forum, especially the comedy section, I'll warn you now that CaB are a bunch of honest, intelligent and usually brutal critics and you'll very likely find something you love torn to shreds. God, I love it there :'D
