the Doctor affects some of the stories for Torchwood. Just because it has a different mood, it should not be compared?
her fiance yeesh
John Barrowman even though he is Jack Harkness he does over do it a bit. We get it he's a horny guy…
Even Ianto though he's a bit too emotional
Also it's obvious the show is meant to bring in some of the older Dr. Who fans into it.
There have been other Sci-fi shows with the same type of stories that have been better.
What instance in any Torchwood episode besides the Season 1 Finale did The Doctor directly affect?
Her fiancee, Rhys, is a bit of a handful. Though I think it's better off than he knows what's going on than keeping up that horrible charade.
I honestly don't like Ianto that much, he comes off a bit odd to me.
The show is meant to bring in old Whovians? How so?
Are we talking British shows or American? And which ones would those be anyway?
I'm not saying this show is the best thing around but you have to give it more credit than that.
As a spin-off of long-running British cultural artifact Doctor Who, Torchwood's launch into British popular culture has received much positive and negative review, commentary and parody following the hype of its inception, especially in regards to its status as an “adult” Doctor Who spin-off as well as its characterisation and portrayal of sex. The series initially attracted record high ratings, which later fell, but ensured the programme at least a second series.
In April 2007, Torchwood beat its parent series, which is also made in Wales, to win the Best Drama Series category at the BAFTA Cymru Awards. The awards, given by the Welsh branch of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, celebrate the achievements of film and television productions made in Wales. Eve Myles won the Best Actress category at the same awards, ahead of Doctor Who's Billie Piper.
Torchwood explores several themes in its narrative, in particular LGBT themes. Various characters are portrayed as sexually fluid; through those characters, the series examines homosexual and bisexual relationships. Although the nature of their sexual flexibility is not explicitly discussed, the characters offer varying perspectives on orientation.
Through the use of repetition, in particular of thematically important lines, and by drawing parallels between characters, the show also delves somewhat into existentialism, the value of human life, and the corrupting nature of power.
