Review: Torchwood – The Dying Room

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


1940, Nazi occupied Paris. SS interrogator Grau is holding a man in a hotel he believes knows more about the recent spate of deformed monsters who were once men running amuck on the streets, than he is letting on. He believes he knows about Madame Berber and her work to undermine the German plans. And more to the point he thinks this man knows more than he is letting on about Torchwood.

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Let’s just get this out of the way; this is fantastically written & directed by Scott Handcock and a story where Tosh played by Naoko Mori gets to shine in a way which I feel maybe she didn’t always get to on TV. I say this up front as there is so much to talk about in this release.

Review: Torchwood – Dollhouse

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


If a year or two back when Big Finish started the Torchwood range you would have said they were going to do one with a new Torchwood crew, not involving any of our favourites I might have been dubious; but Big Finish’s Torchwood has been so good and diverse in it’s output that series producer James Goss has earned the right to do something completely new with it and earn’t my trust.

Review: Torchwood – Visiting Hours

Review by Doctor Squee (Host of Gallifrey Stands Podcast)


Mild Spoilers!

In TV Torchwood I loved how they fleshed out what to begin with were mere supporting parts. PC Andy becoming a sergeant and a proper ally to the team and not just the comic relief that got them into places as a cop sometimes.

So it was also with Gwen’s long suffering husband Reece played brilliantly by Kai Owen. He felt more and more like part of the team and whereas Miracle Day wasn’t everyone’s favourite adventure; he really shined in it and had a lot to do. Continue reading
