With a deep, steadying breath and a word of thanks to our listeners for their encouragement, we begin our journey into the tumultuous third season of Torchwood.
Season 2 of Torchwood ends with what we consider to be a well-crafted but nonetheless difficult to watch finale.
The second season of Torchwood makes an interesting choice by going with a set of flashback sequences for its penultimate episode.
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.
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.
While reveling in the return of Doctor Martha Jones and all the things we love about her, we also recognize a solid story that works completely outside of the science fiction construct.
An unfamiliar face joins the Hub 3 team, but no one seems to notice until our lovable lunkhead Rhys gets the right people upset about the right things.
The reason many of us remember the ‘tortured space manatee’ episode from Season 2 is the same reason others forget…the disturbing nature of the episode’s primary storyline.
Tommy the thaw-and-refreeze soldier gets a first date with Tosh and one last swing at Owen before being asked to save Cardiff…and the world.
With the team now working more effectively and completely than any time in Season 1, we’re handed a rather overt, at times obvious investigation into a crime that could have led to more, but didn’t.
