Dr versus captain jack
I liked your review Gilbeymichael but can I just correct a small point.The Doctor knew Rose had resuscitated jack but left him on the space station because he felt Jack was "wrong".He was a fixed point in time and therefore should not exist and at the time the Dr could not deal with this.They sort it out the next time they meet and Jack says"You mean you were predjudiced" and the Dr replies "I hadn't thought of it like that"(I can remember that but ask me to name an episode and I havent a clue lol)The first Torchwood series had some good episodes and some not so good.The second series was heaps better although regret the demise of tosh and Owen who had mellowed so much towards the end but it was difficult to see where a zombie type character could go so he had to die properly but Tosh's death was quite unexpected.Children of earth was a great drama but heartbreaking
Hope this next series is a bit lighter although RT has said it is dark.Rambling a bit now so I will stop.
- I know exactly how you feel, Catzy. I had to wait for the DVD to see CoE at all
because at that time, I didn't get BBCA. I had read so much about that show
that I waited quite a while after getting the DVD before I watched it. There
were times when I wondered whether I wanted to watch it at all. I finally did,
and, to date, I have not watched it again. It was quite incredible, but the
overwhelming 'darkness' was a bit much for me.

Jeez we've been called "moral" and "immoral" on this list, I guess that means a
healthy mix of both. But back to Captain Jack, the most immoral moralist I know,
and a real charmer to boot. I'm very interested in what -- if any -- changes RTD
has in store for him. And I hope the series is not all dark, like CoE. It was so
painful to watch I still haven't taken the shrink wrap off the DVD set I
received the day it was made available.
