Rumor has it that Doctor Who may get pulled off Netflix Instant as of February 1, so time for a marathon!
It has now been one week since the identity of the Twelfth Doctor was released. Has it really only been a week? I guess a week is a long time on Tumblr. In any case, we now know that Peter Capaldi will be playing the twelfth incarnation of the Doctor on the BBC’s long-running sci-fi […]
Growing up a fan of giant monsters and giant robots, I was excited when Guillermo Del Toro announced he was working on a mecha vs kaiju film. Del Toro is a fanboy at heart so I trusted he would take the source material and put his spin on it. His handling of Hellboy really spoke […]
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.
This is the episode I’ve been dreading. It’s the reason that I haven’t re-watched the series since it first aired.
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.
When “Children of Earth” originally aired, there was a new episode every night for five nights. It was brilliant because the tension of each episode carried immediately over into the next night.
So you think that Torchwood couldn’t break your heart anymore, huh? Not after the season two finale that left two beloved characters dead and Torchwood adrift, right? To borrow from another fantasy series, “Oh, my sweet summer child!”
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?
Well here were are, the season finale. This season has had its ups and downs and pulled every conceivable emotion out of viewers. The finale is no exception and it pulls no punches in the feelings department.
Here we are, the beginning of the end; the penultimate episode of a roller-coaster season. The viewers get the set-up to the season finale and backstory on how the team ended up working for Torchwood, including Jack.
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.
The circus has come to town and it’s creepy. This stand-alone episode tries to harness the inherent spookiness and twisted charm of an old-timey circus and inject it into the Torchwood world.
So, after the angst, heartbreak and heavy themes of the last three episodes, the series does a complete 180 and delivers an episode that can only be described as silly. As the title suggests, it deal with a wedding: Gwen and Rhys’, to be exact. Though it’s rather a jarring about face after the story […]
This may be one of the most compelling episodes of the entire series. The arc focusing on the life of the dead Owen Harper comes to a close in this episode and it’s heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time. Burn Gorman was able to inject humanity into a somewhat unlikable character and turn him into […]
