Review: Torchwood – The Death Of Captain Jack

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Ok, who Didn’t want to see James Masters back in Torchwood? Yep, no one in their right mind (sorry if you said no, but your wrong on this one, deal with it!) And right from the get go he reminds you of how fun the character of Captain John Hart was/is. Like Captain Jack but without the pesky morals and even more sexually open just when you thought that wasn’t possible. Continue reading

Big Finish Review: Torchwood – Broken/Made You Look

Review by Doctor Squee (Head Reviewer & Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Time for a round-up of the latest Big Finish Torchwood releases and my first review since Indie Mac User became an official reviewer for Big Finish (fanfare and bunting released!).

First up we have the long awaited Broken. Exploring the gap between Ianto saying goodbye to his Cyber girlfriend and really stepping into the thick of the action as a full member of the Torchwood team. In a recent panel hosted by yours truly, I got to ask Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto himself) about this adventure…

‘That’s a question quite a lot of fans ask, what happens between Yanto hiding a cyberwoman in the basement and suddenly being promoted to a fully-fledged member of the team. That sort of arc wasn’t really investigated in the show but this is an audio piece that really delves into that and answers a lot of question the fans might have had.’
