Anyone seen it? Dunno if it has been broadcast in the US yet.

Official site: http://www.bbc.co.uk/torchwood/
Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torchwood

Basically it's a spin-off from Doctor Who, with the main character being Captain Jack Harkness, as introduced in a couple of Doctor Who episodes in the 2005 series.

I am finding it to be very awesome. icon_mrgreen.gif

Currently catching up on it, so far I have only seen episodes 1 to 5, and the finale episodes 12 & 13.

Ooh I hope so, because James Marsters' character was quite good in the end I thought. I didn't like him at first though.

Plus that'd quite funny cos Torchwood is kinda Buffy-inspired. :p

I'm hoping they'll keep him as a recurring character, but I really don't see him as enough of a team player to actually join up without challenging Ianto to a duel over Jack. Possibly in a mud-wrestling ring, but still. I have horrible visions of them totally warping his character if he joins the team - suddenly his sex drive goes out the window and he's just snark, no kisses.

Well he's the same as Jack... They are all completely omni-sexual. They'll shag anything, lol... Jack's toned down because he's been on Earth so long :p

So, the word on the street is that Torchwood series 3 is a mini-series of about 5 episodes with one story arc, which may even be shown all in the same week.

Personally I'm a little dissapointed. With Doctor Who taking a break from the standard and having four specials throughout the year instead of a proper series, I was hoping there would be a decent run of Torchwood to make up for it.

Oh well.

What do you make of this?

Personally I hope there will be more than 5 episodes to come... I have become quite fond of Torchwood and kind of like it more than Who itself. Perhaps the lack of more Torchwood to come is connected to Davies' coming retirement from the whole Doctor Who franchise?

I don't know... I thought it was a bit weird, seeing as he's not doing Doctor Who, I expected him to focus more on Torchwood :???:

I feel that he might have just burned out when it comes to the Whoniverse. His next work is apparently return to his earlier themes, a TV series about middle-aged gay men apparently.

So, Torchwood: Children of Earth is currently airing in the UK.

I kinda forgot to mention it. It's a serial aired in 5 one hour long episodes.

I might add more about this later, but first:

Major episode 4 spoiler:

THEY JUST KILLED IANTO JONES!?

:eek:

    • The Mandalorian

      The Mandalorian is a TV series set after the fall of the Empire, featuring an all-new cast of characters. It was announced by Disney CEO Bob Iger in November 2017, and will air on the new streaming service Disney+ in late 2019.
       
      Plot Summary
      After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.
    • Filming wraps on The Mandalorian TV show

      Principle filming for The Mandalorian has finished, according to the folks over at Disney.
      There is still no word on a release date for the new Star Wars TV show, which is set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, but new information is expected to be revealed at Star Wars Celebration in April.
      Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) is playing the titular role of the Mandalorian, with supporting roles from Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), and Emily Swallow (Supernatural). Little else is currently known about the show, but producers previously teased that classic trilogy characters R5-D4 and IG-88 will make an appearance.
      The Mandalorian debuts on the Disney+ streaming service, later this year.
    • Untitled Cassian Andor live-action series

      So it looks like the new Disney streaming service (creatively named Disney+) will be adding a second live-action Star Wars show to its lineup.
      Joining the in-production The Mandalorian will be a series focusing on Rogue One's Cassian Andor. (So obviously this is a prequel).

      Having sort of a SW spy thriller sounds like it could have good potential.  Plus there is the possibility of more K-2/Alan Tudyk. So I'M IN.

      Anyone else checking this out?
       
      I've only seen the first episode so far...  but I think it's a new obsession.
    • Star Wars: The Clone Wars

      Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a CGI animated television series which continues from the animated movie of the same name. It is set during the time between Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.
      The Clone Wars was aired from October 2008 until March 2014. It was cancelled shortly after Disney acquired Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franchise. The final series was not broadcast on television, being made available through Netflix, and several undeveloped story arcs were adapted as part of the The Clone Wars Legacy series.
