Jimmy has a Doctor Who tonight at 6:45pm and RTD says of it in an interview:
"The Pompeii episode is so ambitious that we had a script that was easier to film standing by, in case someone turned round and said, 'This is impossible.' The whole thing was terrifying, and a nightmare to film, but that’s what makes it good in the end. It’s a glorious episode.’
I feel I should say something about Torchwood as regular readers will remember my disappointment in the first series.
I saw the list of writers for the second series, which included Jimmy, and knew the production wasn't rushed this time so I gave it another go.
With the first series I only liked one episode (by Toby Whithouse of the much talked about Being Human pilot). In the second series I liked ten episodes.
I think there's a slight chance Torchwood might be repeated at some point in the future (keep your eyes peeled just in case you miss it) and so it's worth checking it out if you weren't a fan of the first series. There was earned emotion and consequences.
