In 2014, Titan Comics began publishing new Doctor Who adventures, taking over the reins from IDW, the publisher who handled the property’s comics through the show’s 50th anniversary. They’ve published Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctor-based stories, but this week marks the beginning of a five-issue miniseries with the Ninth. I had a chance to interview […]
We’ve been on a wild, dark ride as we’ve followed the straggling, remaining members of Team Torchwood try, in vain, to prevent the demands of the 456. Today, we’re wrapping up Children of Earth, and the ride is going to be bumpier than ever.
The scariest moment in any monster story isn’t when the action surprises us. The scariest moment is when we realize that we are the monsters, that the ghouls and zombies and vampires and aliens are only a reflection of the darkest, vilest parts of us.
I’ve got a major case of the giggles this week. So do my gifs!
Hello, lovelies! Coco’s sex column is taking a break this week, so I’m bringing you some of the gifs (and a couple of jpegs) that give me Feelings.
Going beyond physical desire, Torchwood‘s second series tackles the big questions of our human identity. What makes us who we are? And if we feel human, does that make us so?
I would like to think that Newton’s Law of Motion applies to many things, not just science. It’s a useful metaphor for life and plots of our favorite TV shows.

This episode of Torchwood contains one of my favorite things: MARTHA JONES! It’s actually one of the few times the viewer is reminded that the Torchwood universe is connected with the Who-verse, and what a great reminder. Martha is actually my second favorite companion (first place belongs to Donna Noble) but I still love her […]
Torchwood understands that our desire for sex, for connection, is wrapped up in our sense of mortality.
Dear God, this episode. It ranks among many Torchwood fans (including me) as their favorite episode of the series. I have to really control my squee levels while recapping this, but some may seep through. Consider yourself warned.
The third episode of the series dumps us right into the middle of action as Gwen seems to be settling into the team. We also get some Gwen/Jack bonding time and a peek at a more emotional side of Owen.
Hello, friends. Welcome to the inaugural post of the retro recap of Torchwood. I will be one of your guides as we explore a world with some of our favorite things: aliens, bad ass ladies, flirty 51st century men, immortality, a healthy exploration of sexuality and gender fluidity, with a lot of cheek and a […]
