    Re the schedule change info above:

    "UPDATED: BBC confirms Torchwood schedule change

    The BBC has just confirmed to SFX that episode six of Torchwood season two – Reset – will premiere on BBC3 after the showing of episode five on BBC2 next Wednesday. So it wasn’t an error in the listings.

    UPDATE

    And we've just found out, direct from the Beeb, that this is a one-week-only "scheduling experiment". You heard it here first."

    MediaBlvd Magazine has an interview with Burn Gorman. He talks about Owen in series 1&2 about Tosh and certain s2 guest star.

    this bit made me lol -non-spoilery-
    Spoiler:
    "Kenn> Well, it seems like Owen was one of the few people that had a lot of snogging time; first with Gwen, then with the woman pilot from the past. You actually had a love interest twice. Is that going to continue?

    Burn> I was actually as surprised as anyone else. Let’s be honest, with gorgeous looking men in terms of Jack and Ianto, I always felt that maybe they should get some of the action. I don’t see myself as that. I see myself much more as a character actor. So I wasn’t entirely comfortable with it, but I enjoyed it while it happened. I think that some of that was with Captain Jack being such a hero figure, they didn’t want to bog him down with the issue of snogging or sex or whatever. He implies it, and talks about it. But we do see more in season of two of other members of the team getting into relationships and such, but thankfully, Owen gets much less of that. I get to keep my top on!"

    Financial Radio has an interview with Naoko Mori. Spoilers up to "To The Last Man".

    Episode 5 Adam PREVIEWS, REVIEWS and SPOILERS
    Director: Andy Goddard, Written by Cath Tregenna

    DigiGuide mini-review:
    Spoiler:
    "An alien in their midst?
    The critics have been most impressed with this unorthodox episode of the sci-fi fantasy series. Unusually it's a little short on special effects, dashing about and knowing japes; instead the focus is on the characters themselves, which some critics have found to be a refreshing change.

    A new character - Adam (Bryan Dick- is among the Torchwood team. Intriguingly they seem to regard him as a long-standing team member, but surely that's not the case? Could it be that he's an alien with the power to change people's memories? If so, it's up to the team to save themselves before it's too late.

    With Captain Jack caught up in memories of his lost family, and Gwen struggling to remember Rhys, it takes Jack's love of Ianto to reveal the truth. But there's always a price to pay...

    Highly recommended."


    Radio Times mini-review
    Spoiler:
    "Episode 5/13 Adam

    What's wrong with the Torchwood team? Jack has lost all his confidence, Ianto's become a murderous brute, Tosh is sexually voracious, Gwen doesn't even recognise her husband Rhys and the usually cocksure womaniser Owen has become a timid, cardigan-wearing geek. There's a new member of the team too - but everyone is treating him as if they've known him for years…
    RT Choice (Mark Braxton, 13 February 2008)

    Those expecting special effects ?* gogo, or the usual up-tempo japes, may feel short-changed; others who like their drama - even their sci-fi - to be character-centred, won't. The back story for Captain Jack is especially rewarding. And if the plot doesn't make complete sense, there's plenty to compensate. It's taken a while but now, at last, we really care. Hurrah! "


    Digital Spy's usual "spoiler party":
    "This absorbing episode, very Buffyesque in its storyline, continues the remarkable improvement of Torchwood in its second series. In honour of its quality, we present a mammoth three fake spoilers amongst the following snippets of information about 'Adam':"
    Spoiler:
    1. Ianto confesses to Jack that he has murdered three women in the past.
    2. The central villain has a hairstyle seemingly taken, follicle by follicle, from one hit wonder Chesney Hawkes.
    3. Captain Jack's younger brother is the most wanted criminal in the universe.
    4. Rhys subjected Gwen to his garlic breath during their first ever kiss.
    5. Jack is taken back to the Boeshane Peninsula.
    6. Tosh snogs a member of the Torchwood team and drops a bombshell - her favourite sandwiches are smoked salmon. That's one very high maintenance lady.
    7. Owen is called a 'small rodent' by Tosh.
    8. Susie Costello is back for a very brief cameo - and is killed yet again!
    9. Ianto catches Jack snogging Gwen on CCTV.
    10. Gwen pulls a gun on Rhys and threatens to shoot him.
    11. Ianto's ex girlfriend Lisa pops up.


    Digital Spy has also several quotes from the episode:
    Spoiler:
    "Who Said That?
    1. "You have picked the wrong girl to stalk, mate."
    2. "I love him, but not in the way I love ***."
    3. "It was the worst day of my life. It's the **** ***** I **** ** ********."
    4. "I wouldn't let you out of my sight because I love you."
    5. "Who the hell is this?"
    6. "You're not my ****. Never will be."


    io9 has major spoilers (You have been warned)
    Spoiler:
    "Torchwood spoilers: A memory-altering creep named Adam joins the team and makes everyone believe he's always been there. He also makes Tosh think she's a cleavage-flashing bimbo who's dating him. Also, Gwen forgets Rhys, and Owen believes he's a dork. (So, not much change there.) When Ianto realizes his paper diary doesn't mention Adam, the psycho gives Ianto false memories of being a serial killer. Jack finally figures it out and stops Adam, and everybody gets their real memories back. We glimpse a super-cheesy vision of Jack's childhood. Gwen remembers Rhys, but declares she doesn't love him as much as she loves Jack. (WTF?)"


    Actors listed for the episode (source: BBC2) SUPER SPOILERY!

    Jack's mother ...... Lauren Ward

    I think the first half of it's finished, sometimes filming goes on while the first few episodes are showing on TV, I think the weather in the summer may have mucked up a lot of filming too

    Maybe a monster, a Weevil could work but a main cast member of Torchwood? Not sure I want to see anyone else besides Jack on Doctor Who.

    Dam Russell! I would love to see The Doctor on Torchwood! Dam kiddies, who cares about them! Also if he is so worried about the *children's* hero being on Torchwood where does that leave Jack?! He is a big dam hero! Kids love him! Why else would they do an edited version in the first place?

    I say just do a big cross-over movie already and be done with it...

    I could see Gwen traveling with the Doctor.... anyone else.. not really... and really, there's ample reason for the Doctor to be on Torchwood.... and if he's soo worried about the pre-watershed version, not every episode has to be filled with sex, violence, and gore.... even adult audiences like a nice, danger-without-overt-violence story every now and then.....and if he's worried about how to express Jack, he did a wonderful job with the innuendos on DW...

    icWales: Torchwood writer shares some script secrets (Interview with TW writer Cath Tregenna [Out Of Time, Captain Jack Harkness, Meat, Adam]

    "... writing for Torchwood is a “very liberating” experience.

    “There is no bible at all. I said to Russell T Davies when I first met him I felt agoraphobic because I didn’t have the limitations and boundaries of, say, being in an emergency ward.

    “The danger, however, is sometimes just sticking to a guest story in that episode and having the Torchwood team reacting to it. The best episodes are where they are personally on some sort of journey.

    “I have noticed in this series how Torchwood can hold different genres, so you can have a very character-driven episode followed by an action alien invasion episode but it all holds together quite well.”

    Tregenna will be giving an insight into the world of writing for television – and some insider information on Torchwood – when she speaks during the Ffresh Festival at Aberystwyth Arts Centre this Thursday."

    ...“The unsung hero is the script editor. I have worked with Helen Raynor who also writes for Torchwood and Brian Minchin and they will help you with the overall continuity of the character’s voice, for example they will say Ianto has a very dry sense of humour, so don’t be afraid to give him the very dark gags,” she says of Torchwood."

    Torchwood Action Figures

    "Torchwood is getting its own figures- they will be 7" scale unfortunately, but will include Jack, some of the monsters (including Weevil). The rest of team will not be in the first wave.

    There are no classic Dr. Who figures shown yet at Toy Fair this year; Underground was not allowed to display them, but more are coming. First wave will incldue the 4th, 5th, and 6th Doctors. And the Rose/ Chip 2-pack will be rereleased for those who missed out the first time.

    Dr. Who Mini=Mates were shown, including the 9th & 10th Doctors, Martha, Cyberman, Cyber controller. Dr Who Jack (10th Dr.) will have two versions.

    Torchwood on UK iTunes?

    "The BBC today confirmed earlier reports that it would distribute its televised content on the UK iTunes store, offering an initial selection of episodes from seven different series. The selection includes several episodes from the raunchy, but popular Doctor Who spinoff, Torchwood, and MI5 spy drama Spooks, as well as the offbeat crime series, Life On Mars. Most of the unveiled content goes for £1.89, with a few exceptions.

    Content from Little Britain, The Catherine Tate Show, The Mighty Boosh, Little Britain, and Two Pints of Lager & a Packet of Crisps were also released. Other titles are expected to follow.

    Neither Apple nor the BBC commented whether it would bring the content to international music stores."
