Torchwood how I love thee ...

Okay so Torchwood was great - not an overly wonderful first ep, but then it was doing the whole intro thing with the new characters so I'm not surprised; I thought the first ep of the new DW was unspectacular too. Oh, but the second ep - now that's more like it: FAB!

I so love the mpreg comment at the beginning - I nearly fell off my seat laughing.

Although Jack is madly in love with the Doctor (wow did he love that hand, and my can I think of some nasty stories that'll come out of that ::g::), I can so see him with the Ianto (who is much cuter in motion than he is on the website). In fact I don't think any of the publicity shots do the cast justice.

I like that Jack was slipping back into his old mindset, but Gwen's humanising him again - I can imagine waking up and finding himself in his current deathless condition as well as being abandonned could have set him back a bit. The question is, with the Tardis energy in him and the hand, could he regernerate the Doctor from just the hand, or possibly here is the solution in case the Doctor reaches his 13th regeneration and runs out of life.

No fair that we had naked cast members and it wasn't Jack! So not on. I defintely think they need a few scenes where he has to get his kit off. His offhand comments on both the male and the female of the species were wonderful as ever and I loved the debate among his team about whether he is gay or not. The girls are so on the ball :).

All in all it seems a pretty good ensemble show. I do hope it stays that way.
