Well, I watched the finale of Torchwood over the weekend. Yes, I am about three weeks behind everyone else but I got there in the end.

Anyway, it really got me that both Tosh and Owen get the rub. I’m actually reading the first series of Torchwood books that came out last year and finding it a little tricky as I keep thinking ‘you’re going to die’. Wish I had read them before I knew that.

A quick question:

Can someone jog my memory as to when the Torchwood crew find out that Jack can’t die? (yeah, I know Gwen finds out in the first episode but what about the others).

Secondly, any takers to the theory that Owen isn’t actually dead? How long would it take for his body to actually decay? On second thoughts, let’s face it…he’s gone (and about time too I hear the Owen haters cry).

So, anyone looking forward to a third series (in whatever form it takes). I know I am.

The Torchwood (radio) audio due in June/July is set after series 2 with Martha and the remaining Torchwood team going to CERN in Switzerland to investigate funny goings on. Could be worth a listen and as a radio broadcast will be free.

: : And so it ends. Like last season, a bit of a mixed bag -
: : one or two great episodes but mostly pretty good. Can't
: : say there was a totally awful one (maybe ep 10??). Killing
: : off two main characters seems a bold move. And with Chris
: : Chibnall moving on to greener pastures, maybe these will
: : spell some positive changes for series 3 - assuming there
: : is one!
:
: Pretty good end to the series methinks. Sadly I had the
: misfortune of reading a script summary of this episode a
: few weeks ago, so I knew what to expect (though when I
: read it I really thought it was fake - it was alot better
: on screen than in print!).
:
: The same summary said (BIG SPOILER ALERT!!!!)

: Martha and Mickey will be replacing Tosh and Owen next
: series and Jack will have a lesser presence (with JB being
: busier than ever on other projects). Plus Torchwood
: apparently will be becoming less adult and going for the
: more family audience that it hopefully has gotten with
: those cut-down episodes.
:
: This perhaps is true, now the script summary was
: completely authentic.
