Torchwood reactions

I like. An awful lot.


Jack can't die. Shot in the head, and he still survived. Rose, Rose, Rose.... just what did you do to him?

The pterodactyl rocks. I want more of him.

Gwen's detective skills are impressive. Locating Torchwood through the power of pizza! And she's able to use what she knows to run a nice profile in the second ep.

The invisible lift/debris left by a dimensionally transcendental chamelion circuit was a nice touch. As was the whole references to The Christmas Invasion and Torchwood Towers.

Torchwood 4 is missing. If Jack wasn't joking, that is. Though logically I'd say it was in Northern Ireland.

Very nice twist on the opening ep - they totally had me fooled on what happened to Susie. Never saw it coming that she was behind the murders, and all the advance publicity stressed the whole team including her.

And very much an adult show. The night club guy alone in the second ep....

Jack is not happy. That was the Doctor's hand from the Christmas Invasion alright, and Jack is very attached to it. The guy would rather let an body posessing alien escape into Cardiff than risk anything happening to the hand.

"The amateurs got here first." Was that UNIT?

Ianto is my fav so far for some reason. Looks good in a suit, doesn't care about Jack's sexuality and cleans up everyone else's messes. Not to mention he was the only one to have his napkin tucked in tidily during the chinese.

"He came and went" is my favourite line so far.

I'm going to bet that someone has a Jack/hand fic done by tomorrow night.


Updating this as I go along and think of more stuff, btw.

I find it tends to be at least a couple of hours myself before I can get US television.

Are you watching Robin Hood 2006? I downloaded the first one and it's pretty good.

Liked it a lot - plot for ep. 2 was nicked straight from Angel S2, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Love it that Jack has hand issues and an mpreg past - someone has sure as hell been reading fanfic and decided to touch all the bases.

Add Jack's mpreg past to the Doctor's "I was a father once" comment, and the fic practially writes itself.

The plot for ep. 1 was ntaurally nicked from "Rose" as ordinary girl meets mysterious man and is sucked into his world, despite his telling her to go away. Still fun, and done well.

I didn't see the plot as nicked at all. How else do you write that? I mean, seriously - how do you write "girl finds about mysterious shadow org headed by hot guy with secrets" and not have it come off like "girl finds about mysterious shadow org headed by hot guy with secrets"??

*blinks oddly at you* And hon, if it's nicked - it's nicked from something ages and ages before an episode from 2 years ago. I think there was a silent film like that...

Wow... That was fast. Let it never be said that the British are not an efficient people.

I saw the first one. Haven't had time to watch the second one yet, but it looks promising -- and a little familiar...

I get the vague impression you were happy with it.

But I'm not totally sure.
