But Jack is from the 51st Century how do the Daleks fit into that timeline?
His line in The Parting of Ways when he said they were the "most dangerous species in the universe and then they just disappeared" is the biggest sign for me. He'd obviously encountered/had common knowledge of them at sometime in his past.
We don't know how long the Daleks were a superpower in the universe, or at what time they started their missions of conquest.
And we don't know what time period (or periods) the Time War occurred at.
I was very vocal about how cruddy I thought series one was. saying that, series 2 has seriously turned it up to 11. This series so far is better than series 3 of Doctor who. The episode "ADAM" and "LAST MAN STANDING" were "Buffy" quality. good stuff. (very suprised, myself)
All of them It was a TIME War
I agree this series is a vast improvement.
Another good one 2nite (BBC3 version). Thought it was quite funny tbh. lol@Rhys punching Jack.
You lot still watch this disgusting show?? My mum had it on last night and two blokes were dancing
[hl=black]So in last night's episode Owen was with the dying man and went to administer CPR. However he then was unable to breathe into the man because he's dead and can't breathe. So how can he talk? He ought to be communicating in sign language or via writing. I know it's probably poetic license to keep the show moving but it's a plot hole you could drive a lorry through.[/hl]
So? They were dancing together, why's that disgusting?
I was wondering the same thing. [hl=blue]Maybe he can breath enough to talk but not enough to give CPR?[/hl]
Owen's status doesn't work at all if you think about it very much. With his whole body numb just standing up straight should take some concentration, but he's running about and jumping into rivers. If wounds won't heal at all then why's his body not just decaying? There's no cell renewal so even if it takes a while he should be gradually wearing away to nothing.
Thing is, if he's actually dead can he actually be killed?
I know Jack recovers even from body damage, but is Owen immortal like him?
Or is Owen just gonna take punishment he can't heal until he ends up like Stephen Hawking?
You know, I actually ROFLCOPTERED at that.
Yeah, it is quite funny.
'Something Borrowed' (BBC Three) was a good episode, I think Series 2 is better than Series 1, so far.
Definitely. It's consistent, which Series 1 was not.
Yep I agree, plus I really like the charaters more, especially Owen.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the series definitely works better when Davies isn't writing the episodes.
True, I think when R.T.Davies leaves I would like to see Steven Moffat take over. (Going into Doctor Who here) but I loved Timecrash.
Didn't Davies say he was stepping down as head writer?
Wikipedia says that he hasn't written any episodes in series 2. [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Torchwood_episodes]The article[/link].
But he is creator, and still writes for Who and has overall story control.
I heard he was leaving soon and hope he does, just wanna know how long I have to wait.
I've just watched all the episodes from the start for the first time (4 day marathon), and in a bit, I'll let you all know my thoughts on each of them
But, I've just read through this entire thread, and some of the comments regarding same-sex relations are way over the line. I'm not gonna go into details or pull people up on it on what has already been posted, but I will be taking action should any such comments be repeated.
This season of TORCHWOOD has officially lost me. Started good and I may give it another try, but in general has lost me.
