Torchwood was renewed for new season and will be moving to BBC2 from
what been able to gather from posting and other groups.
Remember Jack does not know the doctor has changed and that Rose and
him are no longer together. Torchwood one was lost but we have no idea
as to what they know of the Doctor and Rose. I noted that people seem
to be having there minds wiped as in the Doctor who X-mas show it
seems no one seem to remember the X-mas before and the space ship that
was blown up by Torchwood then too.
Could there be more than Torchwood at work at keeping Alien tech to
them selfs other than TW?
Anyone have the new season starting date yet for Torchwood?

target audience...which was about 7 as far as she was concerned....she
had a particular problem with....oh hang on what was it
called....sorry just got up and my brain really isn't
functioning....the episode where the Tom Baker is in the MAtrix and
being drowned at the end of an episode....she went absolutely
ballistic at that claiming that children had to suffer for a whole
thinking the person that they idolised was dead....
Even seven year olds know how to play the game....I think she assumed
that children weren't aware of what a cliff hanger was and couldn't
comprehend that everything was eventually going to go in the Doctors
favour....even in the 70's/80's kids were a damned sight more media
savvy than most adults thought.....
But she also made strange and bizarre claims about anti-christian
content....because only jesus can die and be resurrected...claims of
being in league with satan....unsurprisingly, The Daemons (hence my
comment about wishing she could see Impossible Planet/Satan Pit).
It wasn't just Who she criticised, but it was a favourite bugbear of
hers.....she was often on programmes like BiteBaCk, Points of View and
even 'Thats LIfe' airing her views, mostly because she pretty much
always managed to make herself look ridiculous...she gave good telly
"A Knife and Fork in a World of Soup"
