The third episode of the first Torchwood season appears to be a bit of “viewer’s ret-con” for most of us, as we can’t really recall any details having seen the story in years past…though we know we did.
We all conclude that this Season 15 satire by story editor Robert Holmes is one of the gems of the Fourth Doctor era, as humorous as it is scathing.
We return to one of our favorite past Whovian games, with the gracious responses by 100 of you to a series of questions about our favorite program. Some were trivia, some were opinion, all were worthwhile, and none were properly prepared for by our contestants, Haley and Jay.
Chris Chibnall gives us a rather — interesting — sci-fi premise for the second outing of our Torchwood team. There’s a lot to enjoy, a lot to question, and even a bit of foreshadowing to seasons to come in this next episode installment.
With all the best intentions (and the glowing skull of Eustace) we set out to fully enjoy this horror story from Series 15…but there are a few bumps along the way. Performances are enjoyable from both Baker and Jameson, and the supporting cast does a great job of punching up their roles to suit the story’s brooding horror. The script from Chris Boucher gives us a buffet-table of entertainment options to pick at. But is the meal satisfying once the dishes are cleared?
