It’s the second season story where not-dead Owen is a horrible grief counselor, Martha leaves, and we all agree that one can effectively leave it at that.
Haley’s back in the studio at long last, and we didn’t even have to use a resurrection glove to make it happen. Hitting the midpoint in Season 2 of Torchwood, we see a recurrence of an episode trait that affected a large swath of the first season: story elements that are enjoyable, but feel underdeveloped.
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.
