5.0 out of 5 stars TORCHWOOD: THE COMPLETE SECOND SERIES!!!, 2 Oct. 2008
Well, here it is
Torchwood Series 2, heres my review.
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang: 9/10: Jack and the team investigate a suspicious death, Jack thinks he knows what it is, his old friend (well, boyfriend), Captain John Hurt who appears to have knolledge about a boy called Gray.
Sleeper: 8/10: Burglars become scared after they try to burgle a house and the residents come home only to discover that they are aliens. Torchwood investigate them and discover a horrible truth.
To the Last Man: 9.5/10: I gave this wpisode 9/10 because it made me a bit happy to see Tosh find true love with a WW1 soilder but there's a catch, he has to be cryogenicaly frozen after 3 weeks and go into hibernation for a year. But, Gwen sees a ghost at the hospital where Tommy (the soilder) was placed after he was blown up. Only he can save Cardif and the world but, that means Tommy will have to go back to 1913 and never see Tosh again.
Meat: 7.5/10: Rhys gets supicious about Gwen and Jack so he goes undercover to find out what she does, he befriends the local "Mafia" who sell him alien meat what Rhys believes to be beef but when Torchwood get suspicious, they place Rhys under arrest for lying to them, Rhys has to do the most dangerous thing of his life. Can Gwen eventually give Rhys the amnesia pill or does she choose not to destroy her relationship again.
Adam: 8/10: Newboy Adam joins Torchwood, only to make them belioeve that he has been their for 20 years causing everyone to forget their love ones. Tosh falls in love with Adam and Owen does as muchs as he can to convince Tosh that he is a nice person.
Reset: 6.5/10: The Doctor's companion Martha Jones has joined Torchwood following murders in Cardiff. The aliens turn out to be wasps who are not related to the Vespiforms in Doctor Who. While Owen dies after being shot.
Dead Man Walking: 10/10: Owen gets resurected after Jack finds the final glove (as Ianto siad "Gloves always come in pairs) and Owen realises he can't die like Jack, even after the last glove is destroyed. While Jack remembers what a fortune teller once told him about Death. Death comes to Earth to find 13 victims for his feast abd theirs only one man fit to kill him, Owen Harper.
A Day in the Dark: 9.5/10: Owen tells his most recent adventure to a girl who is going to jump off a building. This story however is a happy one where Torchwood meet an alien collector who ahs something called the Pulse which Owen trys to blow up because he thinks it's evil!!
Something Borrowed: 9.5/10: It's here! Gwen and Rhys big day, except one slight problem, following the events of Gwens last night, she gets bitten of an shape shifting alien which gives Gwen the baby and the Mother is back to claim what is rightfully hers! Can it be a happily ever after for Gwen and Rhys after all?
From Out of the Rain: 8.5/10: One of the local cinemas in Cardiff is hosting a opening film night but why does the tape show footage of the mysterious Night Travellers and where are they dissapearing to??
Adrift: 9/10: Teenagers are going missing in the heart of Cardiff and a mother has phoned Gwen Cooper to help but why does Jack not want Gwen to find the truth.
Fragments: 10/10: Gwen has been given the day off and the rest of Torchwood hae gone missing. The result is that a bomb has blown up in a warehouse which causes them to remember how they joined Torchwood. But after they all escape, Jack gets a hologram on his vortex manipulator saying that Captain John Hurt (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) has kidnapped Gray who turns out to be Jack's Brother.
Exit Wounds: 10/10: The Series Finale!! Captain John destroys most of Cardiff and it turns out that Captain John is a good character while Gray wnats revenge on the Earth and Jack for losing him. But this episode has some horrible moments like the death of Toshiko Sato after Gray shoots her and Owen Harper after being disintegrated by Nuclear Power beacuse of the radiation going around Cardiff.
So that was my review on Torchwood, Series 2 but if you are into Sci-Fi, YOU WILL LOVE THIS!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best episodes yet!!!, 24 Jun. 2007
Doctor Who - series 3 has not been very good so far but when Human Nature came out i was really shocked that Martha could be a good assistant but she is still not as Billie Piper/Rose Tyler.Human Nature/The Family of Blood: Paul Cornell did a very good job on writing Human Nature/The Family of Blood and i very much enjoyed it and i think lot's of Doctor Who fans did. Blink: Once again Mr Stephen Moffat has done it again the King of Doctor Who terror is back. He brought to you the empty child and the clockwork robots and now he has brought to us the Weeping Angels the second most scary enemies the doctor has ever met next to the Daleks. So, i just hope Utopia, The sound of drums and the last of the time lords are as good. Hint: watch out for The Master an old time lord friend/enemie of the doctor.

Torchwood is a spin off on doctor who. It's where a man called Captain Jack Harkness and his friends called Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones, Toshiko Sato and Owen Harper find alien objects and help arm the human race in the future against alien threats. The storyline to it is, because Captain Jack Harkness met a man called the Doctor and travelled with him and Rose. So, when the tardis needs refueling the Doctor will come back to a rift in Cardiff where Jack and his friends are so TORCHWOOD is built on the rift. So, Jack is hoping the Doctor will come back to that spot and explain why he can't die. He also wants to see Rose Tyler again, but he's going to be in for a great shock when he finds Rose is gone and the Doctor's new assistant is Martha Jones plus he won't know it's the Doctor because the Christopher Eccelston who Jack travelled with has REGENARATED he will travel with the David Tennant Doctor. The new TORCHWOOD DVD is out in shops on Monday 26th March.
