Torchwood…

… continues to disappoint. I’m sorry, but tonight’s "Out of the Rain" episode was not a patch on "Something Wicked This Way Comes", from which it all too obviously seemed to be derived…

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    I thought it was a bit lame too.  If Ianto and Jack had done a bit more lip-mashing it might have been worth it.  Very hit and miss this series.

    I thought tonight’s episode was rather heartbreaking and well done.  Though the plot and continuity had a brainfart in that I can’t fathom why Jack thought he had to keep the island a secret.  Still, thumbs up for this one.

    p.s was the weather up there on the first day of spring as raucous as it was down here?  Pea-size hail storms, snow, sunshine, melt, more snow, hail again.   I miss global warming.

    Well, marginal improvement, I thought. It had another of those big emotive scenes between Gwen and Rhys that are full of sound, fury and mucus, but which, when you think about them are really a bit daft. And the final showdown between mother and son was too pat, and mechanical for me. Good idea, but not well enough executed for me to surrender to it. At least you got your Jack/Ianto lip mashing action.
     
    Oh, and yes, we’ve had some storms, but nothing too bad – apparently there’s going to be more snow today…
