Torchwood Again

OK, so I’ve now seen episode 3 of Torchwood. And I’m still not sure whether I like it. The scene at the shooting range, in particular, I found hard to take. I mean, what the F… was going on there? Satan corrupting Innocence, aka Jack putting the moves on Gwen? I dunno, but it left a somewhat nasty taste. Literally a whiff of cordite. To be honest, apart from the Gwen character, the Torchwood team seem to have totally lost their moral compass, and she seems as though she will go through the series having temptation spread liberally before her.
 
It’s strange, Doctor Who had a mixture of innocence and world-weariness that worked very well. Torchwood gives off a stench of moral decay. I hope I’m wrong, and that the better parts of humanity will win through in the end.
