    I don't know about that; I look down on people here, I just don't tell them.

    I still need to know if there is a "Torchwood" reference this series. So no one has been on OPG? I would have thought they would be wild with speculation. I have been avoiding it because they are not so good with the spoilers IMO. I really want to remain Dr Who spoiler free, well as much as is humanly possible while looking at the trailers.

    Equality is not a concept. It's not something we should be striving for. It's a necessity. Equality is like gravity. We need it to stand on this earth as men and women. And the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance, and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and woman who is confronted with it.

    Pretty ungrateful isn't she - they save her life, so she sets up Torchwood to get rid of them if they come back.

    Why is there no thread yet for the episode in the Season 2 area?

    They do this thing, they make them weeks in advance, then hide them like they do with out of control threads, one of the mods will let it out asap.

    I thought so too, but its called "Deffry Vale"

    We know there are going to be references as RTD has said so himself in the TaC commentary, maybe the one in the Tardisode is all we're gonna get

    Well, what do we think for next weeks episode?
    Spoiler:
    The ship is 51st century*hopes for referance to Captain Jack*
    Im guessing that Torchwood is still around at that point, so maybe it is owned or funded by Torchwood. Thats just my guess

    Oh I do hope not. Really. Torchwood does not need to be in EVERY episode. Only present day ones, or not to distant future. But a 51st century ship? Oh dear no...

    Dont forget, Torchwood was mentioned in "Bad Wolf" as a general knowledge question that was in the year 200,000 or so, so it stands to reason that the oganisation was around for a long time, so 51st century isnt that far-fetched, and I think its gonna be in most eps ala Bad Wolf (which was in all of the stories last year)

    We are blessed. 2 on tonights episode, once on Rose's phone wen she was checking out the broadcast. The second was at the party when Pete asked his unseen friend how things were at Torchwood. So, in that reality Torchwood is a more public organisation, so has this world been effected by aliens and had no help from the Doctor? Or did the events of Tooth and Claw just go differently in this universe, making Torchwood less secretive? I have a funny feeling we will find out next week.

    The first reference in 'Rise of the Cybermen' (on Rose's phone) was really good, but I didn't really like the second one. I thought it was a bit too obvious - I prefer the more subtle Torchwood and Bad Wolf references.
