On a Case for Torchwood?

A meteorite crash in Peru has led to a series of mysterious illnesses. Villagers in southern Peru were struck by a mysterious illness after a meteorite made a fiery crash to Earth in their area, regional authorities said Monday. Around midday Saturday, villagers were startled by an explosion and a fireball that many were convincedContinue reading “On a Case for Torchwood?”

On Torchwood’s American Debut

Tonight. Nine o’clock. BBC America. Torchwood. The adult-themed Doctor Who spin-off debuts on BBC America. But honestly, it’s more like Angel meets Homicide than anything Doctor Who. Seriously. Check Doctor Who at the door, because if that’s what you expect, then you’re in the wrong place. If you want a secret government agency tracking downContinue reading “On Torchwood’s American Debut”

On the Shore Leave Round-Up

It occurs to me that others have written long and lengthy posts about the things they did at Shore Leave over the weekend. I’ve mentioned dribs and drabbles here and there–yes, the TARDIS USB hub is fantastic–but I haven’t done an all-encompassing thing.

On Whovian Rankings

Because it needs to be done (which in this case means, because Keith did it and that automatically makes it good and worthwhile)… Stolen ruthlessly, here is The Utterly Utterly Accurate And Definitive 21st Century Doctor Who Tiered Rankings, as decided upon by me because my opinion is the only one that matters. :p TheContinue reading “On Whovian Rankings”

On Captain Jack Harkness

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. And there areContinue reading “On Captain Jack Harkness”

On the "Utopia" Preview

Just recently on the UK talkshow Jonathan Ross a clip was shown of the upcoming Doctor Who episode “Utopia.” At a guess, I’d say this is probably the pre-credits teaser. I won’t post a link to it, if you’ve not seen it, but I found it on YouTube–that’s all I’ll say about that. 😉 SpoilersContinue reading “On the "Utopia" Preview”

On "The Lazarus Experiment" and Other Who Stuff

Before we get to “The Lazarus Experiment,” the latest episode of Doctor Who‘s third season, let’s look at two new Doctor Who drabbles I wrote and uploaded to the website. The first, “Recitals,” is a tenth Doctor/Martha drabble about, yes, a poetry recital. (There’s no spoilers, for those unfamiliar with Martha.) The second, “Coffee Bars,”Continue reading “On "The Lazarus Experiment" and Other Who Stuff”
