I’ve watched quite a lot of tv shows lately. Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Person of Interest, Desperate Housewives (!). But the show of the past month has been Torchwood, a British science fiction show.
Torchwood is a bit like the X-Files meets Doctor Who. And lately, I’ve become a huge fan of the new Doctor Who show. And Torchwood is a DW spin-off. But unlike Doctor Who, Torchwood isn’t about a semi-immortal doctor who travels all around the galaxy and the space-time continuum. No, Torchwood is a team that solves… Err, mostly extraterrestrial but also some supernatural phenomena on Earth. Well now, that doesn’t sound so exciting, doesn’t it?
There is still something “sparkling” about the show, anyway. It could be Captain Jack Harkness, played by a wonderful Scottish-American actor, John Barrowman. Or more likely, it could be the Gwen Cooper, played by lovely, lovely Eve Myles.
So, let’s just call it an adult version of Doctor Who with some elements from the X-Files, right? Take it or leave it.
Now, supper, shower and off to bed. Nighty night and have a nice week!
