      If I'd never watched Torchwood, I think I'd agree. But the characters were
      pretty OOC. Plus, if I hadn't watched before I wouldn't have cared who
      died senselessly. But a good mini-series if taken by itself.

      I bought them before I saw it. Still haven't unwrapped them. :(
      Someday. Of course, I have a bit of extra angst to go with it as my my was
      diagnosed as terminal 2 days before Ianto died. It will be a while before I
      disassociate the two events (strangely it was also the week of my son's
      wedding which luckily I seem to manage not to associate with TW at all.).

      yes, please. And why the Rift was ok with no one watching it and what
      happened to Janet. and. . ..
