re: Children of Earth
- No spoilers from me from me I assure you. This is great, we actually have something to watch all week, a rare thing these days. This is only specuation but I expect Captain Jack to turn up again towards the end and my feeling is that someone will have to be sacrificed to defeat this threat but this is only what I think so don't count this as a spoiler. I will be glued to the TV throughout.

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.).
