    Me. Maybe it is a nod to the great Douglas Adams, as he used to write for Dr Who

    Yes! I was sat there thinking about the NIMBY effect (Not In My Back Yard)!

The City is about two or three miles north of The Bay.
    I was with a local who said, "It's not far to the bay. Let's walk!" I didn't mind the walkies bit but could have done without the creepy high rises. On the way back I made her walk past the yuppy high rises instead. Yes, we walked back.

    What I'd like to see is a shot of the house on Cowbridge Road East that Ivor Novello was born in. Used to pass it on the bus on the way to my friend's house. That would be cool.

    No, she's on the Torchwood website too, and was credited as a regular in the credits (I think) it was all to catch us off guard. Joss Whedon did it for Buffy a couple of times too, it never ceases to shock me
    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.

    I, alas, have to admit that I didn't; but, now that you mention it - it's a very good point. I like it!

    Suzie also got a full profile in the Radio Times's pre-series hype. It'll be interesting to see whether she returns or whether this was indeed a 'shock exit' thing.

    That might have been a contractual thing, or they were allowed to so they didn't have to redo the credits. (Even though that would take them a few secs >.>).

    This is slightly off topic but I have a question for Cardiff residents/people who have been there/going there etc. I was wondering if any of you had pictures you wouldn't mind sharing/giving? I'd give the entire discription of how this is ontopic, but, I don't want to clog up the thread with promo/explination. *L*

    I thought those credits were joint ones used, Im sure I saw cast lists headed by the episode titles

    Well, it was mjuch better than I enticipated.

    I agree it had its eye-rolling moments, especially the second episode (yes, oh pulease indeed) - but let's admit it, the "sex-crazed alien", while always a bad idea, could have been so much worse!

    They got me intrguied with the Doctor's hand. Maybe Jack's been lying? Maybe this is the key for his immortality?

    Ausing they decided to locate this on Cardiff this time.

    I don't buy the excuse for people not believing what happened with the Cybermen/ Daleks. Sorry, it made for an insanely beautiful series endign for Doctor Who, but it's compeltely and utterly unbelivable that once again the human race ignored aliens. Come on!

    And... I dunno. With all the "this is more fo an adult show" - it just made me realise how much I love the innocent of Doctor Who. I think the cocnept has lost something with this transformation. The dramatic heights are much more touching when they're full with the innocence of Doctor Who.

    But I still luike.

    ETA: oh yeah. And I love the butler person.

    Owen was my favourite character! I find it strange that everyone hates him so much...

    The attempted date rape probably doesn't help.

    Are we sure it was only attempted? Because I figured he went through with it... with both of them. I also kinda thought this wasn't the first time he'd done it. The sequences were showing the team's routine use of alien tech outside of the workplace.

    Either way it was obvious he INTENDED to have sex with that woman and that's enough to turn me right off the character. Permanently.

    I'd certainly assumed it was more than attempted, but it was ambiguous and the attempt and intent is the culpable part. Whether he succeeded or not is more or less irrelevant, he's still a nasty little sleaze even if he did leg it and even if it was the first time he'd tried it.

    Am I the only one who thinks people are overreacting? I'd like to hear some comments on this from the writers, I honestly don't think they were trying to provoke this type of reaction (same with the stargate ones for a certain ep)... I mean, its just a bit of fun and I seriously doubt the majority of viewers would get so wound up about this or even take much notice, but die hard Sci-Fi fans to seem to go over every little detail

    They were routinely using alien technology, but not necessarily that technology in particular. He wouldn't necessarily have had to smuggle it home if he had been using it regularly.

    Science Fiction is one of the most sophisticated methods of challenging the public to entertain new ideas, philosophies, or question what they know. Sci Fi is the best way to comment on society! I think such debates are always intended to be caused.
