Thoughts on Torchwood
- I enjoyed the first two episodes. The set is amazing, the amount of
thought and work that has gone into it is quite something. I noticed
with the music of Torchwood that strings , percussion and electronic
instruments are mainly used. This seems to give it an edgier and darker
atmosphere. The music seems less obtrusive and less emotional than with
Dr Who. The black Torchwood car is accompanied by a string theme that
seems to modulate to another key and back again with electronic effects.
I noticed that when Gwen chases the Torchwood car the music is more
percussive. Later as she tries to remember Torchwood the percussive
music returns but in fragments. When she wanders around into the Pizza
place the music is a slowed down version of the Torchwood car music. The
overhead shots of Cardiff seems to give a more contemporary and
glamorous feel to the programme.
