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:

      Gina Carano will play a former Rebel shock trooper named Kara Dune, with Carl Weathers portraying Greef Marka who heads up a guild of bounty hunters.  Werner Herzog appears to be some kind of Imperial administrator who hires the Mandalorian for a mission. Other supporting cast members include Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, and Nick Nolte.
      The show is said to have a Western feel to it and Favreau has said he would include elements from other parts of the Star Wars universe such as the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, and has he has also taken some inspiration from the Star Wars Legends expanded universe.
