Torchwood: Children of Earth

Who said the BBC can’t do science fiction? The five part Torchwood special has been showing every night this week and has been met with unprecedented approval. This show has come a long way from the widely slated first series. Torchwood was originally marketed as ‘Doctor Who for grown ups’ and this season has finally lived up to the expectations. The final episode especially has some very harrowing scenes, including some excellent acting from Peter Capaldi. I’d go into details, but I’d spoil it. Go watch it on the iPlayer while you can. I’m awaiting news of a new series, which should be a sure thing after the success of this one.
