5.0 out of 5 stars Better then season one., 9 May 2008
Over all i tought it was a very good season, better then the first season. as in I liked it because of the story-lines and character delvelmoment (some eps made me cry, as well as in season one, if a show can make you cry or fell something about a character then i think that it makes it a great show, among other things.)
But i did notice that the feel of the show changed it wasnt as dark and adult like the first season, like the dumbed it down for little brats to watch. Plus some big changes happened, not going to say what just in case someone hasnt seen season 2 yet.
I have a felling because of this it wont be good when season 3 starts up, who knows maybe it will. As for the rumors 2 have come to pass, 1. two people leaving the show as well as making it 2. so younger viewers can watch it.

Also i hope the big guys or woman at the bbc notice this this last part, maybe they will see this and if the rumors are true about torchwood, maybe the wont frak it up as much as they would if the rumors are true. i wont watch it anymore, it was good the way it was!!!

As for Captain Jack leaving the show, only to be seen here in there, i hope it not true, you just cant take the main person and get rid of them or put them on the side line (YOUR NOT AMERICA, your BRITISH last time i checked. So if you want to FRAK up a show, if you take after us!!!, torchwood would not last is these rumors are true!!). I wouldnt mind of Martha jones joins up again, as for Rose (who is a GREAT character) frak just give her own show, as well as micky, who are rumored to join torchwood....

5.0 out of 5 stars Torchwood: Slow Decay, 18 Jan. 2007
This review is from: Torchwood: Slow Decay (Hardcover)
First off, i'm giving the book 5 stars but thats because i havent seen the show..., so i dont have anything to go by, but i did very much enjoy the book. Maybe the score should be about 4 and a half.

Well, i dont know if this is the 1st book out of the 3 that were released, but its the one i pick to read first. It was a great book, fo course i dont know if all the characters in the book are the same as they are on tv, since i live in the USAi dont get the show. Maybe they'll show it on the sci-fi channel as they did with series 1 & 2 of Doctor who. I went of a few websites and read that Captain Jack was alot more darker as well as the show, and that the show was more for adults, then kids. As Doctor Who is aimed toward everyone.

So as for as Captain Jack he is alot more darker and less human (then in the Dr. who series and the 3 books) The feel of slow decay is pretty dark, scary...but i loved it. Cant wait to read the other 2 books. Hopefully we can find out why Jack became how he is now, find out more about the team members he has assembled at torchwood, because i love the other characters, i want to know more about Ianto, Toshiko, and Owen, they just make my think that something about them will come some point, and i'll see who they really are. Andy Lane did a great job, cant wait to see if he write more books for the series.

As for seeing a lighter side of Captain jack when he was on Dr Who, read The Stealers of Dreams (which was good had alot of him in there, and gave an insight on who he is, just a little..not too much) or Only Human (didnt have him in the as much as i would have liked but still good...Now, Deviant Strain that was beyond great...A great Captain jack book, as well as Rose and the Doctor.
