Torchwood: Miracle Day

Here is a first look sneak peek at the upcoming season. Torchwood has had an amazing under-the-radar run. The continuing story of Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper began with a 13 episode Season 1 in 2006, and continued a second season of 13 episodes in 2007. Finally came the the love-it-or-hate-it, 5 episode, mini series, […]


  I’ll be honest, when I first started watching Doctor Who reruns as a kid, I was a bigger fan of the human(ish) villains than the monster types. The Valeyard, the Rani, the Master (RIP Anthony Ainley), these characters were fascinating, oozing schemes out of their ears, a true mental match for the Doctor, right […]

We’ll Miss You Sarah Jane

I began my lifelong love affair with Doctor Who in ’96, right after the made-for-tv movie aired and I was twelve years old. It didn’t take me long to discover old episodes of the show would play every Friday night from 10 to midnight. It wasn’t a school night so I was allowed to stay […]

Rest easy, soldier: RIP Nicholas Courtney

Nicholas Courtney, known to generations of Dr. Who fans as “The Brigadier”, has passed away.  With him passes an era of Dr. Who that fans of the new Doctors will never know.  He was the Watson to the Doctor’s Holmes; a solid, stolid companion who stood on his own with no desire to chase after […]

William, William…

I just spent the last 6 hours desperately trying to finish Sonic 4 while you nattered about in the background. Now, as your final set of episodes plays in front of me, all I can feel about the situation is…

Review of BBC’s The Deep Miniseries With the multitude of wonderful series coming out of Britain’s television network, it seems that it would be a given that the recent miniseries focusing on Earth’s inner space would be wonderful as well. Unfortunately that is not the case, and while the 5 episode drama raises some interesting […]

Holmes Reboot – Excellent!

For the past few weeks, on our Talkcasts, we have been talking about the BBC re-adaptation of Sherlock Holmes and how awesome it was. Here’s the good news. It debuted in the US last weekend at the New York Comicon to wild enthusiasm. The crowd loved the Steven Moffat special feature discussion about how the […]

Why Is Jeanne Kietzmann Staring At You?

Ah, look at that beautifully pensive woman and in your heart you know it can only mean one thing; The BBC has a new Sci Fi drama coming out in the fall, doesn’t it? YES! IT DOES! Meet The Outcasts, an 8 part mini-series for the Beeb. Since the unprecedented world-wide response to Doctor Who, […]

Torchwood Revisited

Its been almost a year since I was angry at Russell T. Davies for what he did to Torchwood in Children of Earth. I was resigned to the fact that the very high rated arc was not going to find a new home and I almost laughed when FOX showed any interest in it, eventually […]

The Blogs are Alive, With the Sounds of TORCHWOOD

An Open Letter to Russell T Davies: Perhaps one of the ugliest rumors currently floating on the net is that you are bringing Torchwood to America, in fact to Fox TV. Such reputable sites as the Hollywood Reporter have more than just speculative articles about an American production. As a responsible blogger and dedicated fanboy, […]
