Torchwood: Children of Earth debuted on BBCAmerica tonight and – man, oh man. First of all, it’d been so long since I’d seen it, mourned all over again for Tosh and Owen.
And then, Children of Earth began.
I got all happy about the cute doctor, even while missing Owen, but I didn’t like Ms. Abibi from jump. What’s up with that? I think she’s pretty, but her character seems to have been really slow on the uptake. Thankfully, episode 2 looks like she’ll be picking things up a lil quicker…And really, I suppose it’s best that she didn’t forward the info about Torchwood to the Home Office – even though it’s looks like the HO was monitoring their internet searches.
I’m just really hoping that they don’t end this show. Because I love it. As in the proverbial fat kid/cake love.
I wanna know what this 4-5-6 frequency business is about, though. And who this counter-Torchwood organization is. Were the missing bodies the doctor was referencing real, or was it just part of his cover? If the missing bodies are real, are there a few aliens sent ahead as scouts, to prepare for the takeover – with Britain as the hub?
Kudos to Reese for spotlighting the direct connection to Britain, with the times and all. I hope the fellow that sniffed out Gwen’s pregnancy got away from the 4-5-6 brigade.
Ohhhh, this is gonna be good.
