Re: [torchwood] MD
- Unfortunately because it was first aired on STARZ - when it goes to BBC
America [I have no idea how long Starz retained broadcast rights and
then BBCA would have to negotiate to air the MD eps] they'll be editing
it for time as there are commercial breaks on BBCA.

- I am so enjoying this discussion. I can't stand Gwen, never could for all the reasons listed - mean, selfish, but touted as perfect. I think I could have handled the mean and selfish if she'd not been considered wonderful, if she;d had some redeeming characteristic.
I haven;t seen Even in much, so no comments from me on that.
I too wonder what made RTD fall for her and mess up the show so badly. I still miss Ianto, but after all these years I'm finally reading Janto again.
Did not watch MD again; once was enough. I am watching the eps from the 1st two seasons that I have saved.
