Season 2 of Torchwood ends with what we consider to be a well-crafted but nonetheless difficult to watch finale.
Yes, it’s Adam Mitchell, but that still doesn’t mean we can’t find a lot to enjoy in our first visit to Satellite 5 in the Ninth Doctor’s glorious season.
We delve into the Fifth Doctor’s first post-regeneration story, involving a trio of nefarious space-frog-avocados and more than a bit of concerning cultural and racial depictions.
The second season of Torchwood makes an interesting choice by going with a set of flashback sequences for its penultimate episode.
Using the classic role-playing-game grid of good-to-evil, lawful-to-chaotic, we see how Doctor Who characters past and present align themselves…or fail to be so defined.
With the unraveling of a scarf and the donning of a smart cricket jumper, the Fifth Doctor’s era begins in earnest in the opening story of Season 19.
Gwen learns of another disturbing aspect of dealing with the Rift, and we all take a blow from Chris Chibnall’s ability to write emotionally charged scenes.
No one stopped us the last time, so we’re at it again; mixing drinks to pay tribute to our favorite adversaries of the Doctor.
At long last, our enjoyment of the Fourth Doctor era in our rewatch of “classic” Doctor Who stories comes to a close with the final story of the 18th season.
We spin up some oldey-timey footage of circus sideshows and try and determine exactly who the ‘Night Travellers’ were, why they were doing whatever nefarious things they did in a century ago, and how they were captured in celluloid in the first place.
