Not the same 'old' Torchwood but still good
on 19 August 2013
The englishness of it has gone but still enjoyable if you're not going to spend the whole series comparing it to the first 3 series. RTD still writes a good tale.
Beware - right at the beginning of each episode RTD and John Barrowman talk about what's coming up in that episode and whilst there's no spoilers its bleedin' annoying - FF that bit!
Rex, one of the new recruits as such is a bit angst-ridden but just about gets away with it. Jack takes a break and gets it on with another bit of eye candy which doesn't really matter to the story. Gwen glams up the hair but altho she's essential to the Torchwood world IF it was still set in the UK, having her in the US for the story jars somewhat - shes a complete contrast to the rest of the US characters. The girl who is the new computer whiz is a bit dipsy and at times plays the helpless blonde but again its not too OTT.
So worth a look but not if you want an introduction to Torchwood and bear in mind it is very American.
