Torchwood: Miracle Day


Watching a repeat of it on BBC America and some parts of it have a lot of moral issues to think about. Global conspiracy, semi-zombie states of being and of course good vs. evil and other shades of gray. There are a lot of Doctor Who Easter eggs to be gathered. Miracle Day has a great cast of people from science fiction as well as dramas.

It’s too bad that Russell T. Davies had to figuratively blow up Torchwood in more than one way. When he killed Toshiko and Owen in season 2 and Ianto in “Children of Earth” it seemed that Davies wanted to go into a new dramatic direction.

The franchise had a lot of promise. It was a great companion to Doctor Who. Who knows if there will be another season/series of shows. After “Children of Earth” it seems like it would be hard to recapture the magic that was Torchwood seasons 1 and 2. Perhaps it would be another “Miracle Day” if we saw Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper fighting the good fight again. 


Geek Up Friends – Torchwood: Miracle Day and Orphan Black on BBC America. John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Tatiana Maslany on one channel and one night for several weeks. Good stuff!


Doctor Who: The Stolen Earth and Journey’s End – Are two of the greatest episodes of television I have ever seen. Its an amazing collection of talent and action ever in science fiction television. They also bring along Torchwood for the ride. The two episode arc that showcases David Tennant’s greatness as The Doctor. We also see Elisabeth Sladen in a great performance as Sarah Jane Smith. And Penelope Wilton who would go on to Downton Abbey is former PM Harriet Jones is in the mix too.
