A Freema Ageyman website posted the Torchwood Season 2 trailer. I watched that this morning, and what can I say? I’m majorly excited. 🙂 There’s very little of Martha Jones in the trailer, but that’s understandable. The trailer was cut for BBC America, and BBC America has yet to show the third season of DoctorContinue reading “On the Torchwood Trailer and Assorted Thoughts”
Last night, on the BBC’s Children in Need special, Doctor Who fans were treated to something fun — a two Doctors story, starring David Tennant and Peter Davison. It hardly seems worthy of review; it’s eight minutes long and takes place entirely within the confines of the TARDIS control room. Yet, two TARDISes have mergedContinue reading “On Doctor Who: “Time-Crash””

Oh. My. God. Oh. My. God. Holy. Fuck. The penultimate episode of Doctor Who‘s third season isn’t perfect. But Holy! Fuck! Three years and two series have been building toward this. You can tell. It started last week, as the threads pulled closer. This week? All bets are off. The sound of drums? It’s theContinue reading “On “The Sound of Drums””
Or rather… the Doctor Who blurb. The BBC posted information on the season finale of Doctor Who recently, and fandom’s holding its collective breath. I read the blurb. My first thought, “Wow. That sounds cool!” My second thought? “Wait a second. That sounds like…” Let’s go behind a spoiler/speculation cut.
When last we saw Jack Harkness he’d just gone Gandalf on a Balrog and died, only to return to life after seven days. Then, wandering through the Torchwood Hub, a peculiar wheezing, grinding sound was heard, a wind rushed through the Hub, and Jack Harkness was gone. Tonight, Captain Jack Harkness returns.
