    Default Is this a real Torchwood Quote?

    I read this on a wallpaper image... The quote is below.

    "All those times in history, when the Doctor wasn't there, I wondered why. I know the answer now. The Doctor must look at this planet, and turn away in shame."

    Anyway I read that on a Torchwood wallpaper. Was this a real quote from the show?

    Yes. Though I don't remember the episode, I distinctly remember him saying it.

    Yes, it is from the last episode of "Children of Earth". Gwen is saying it to a camera; recording it for posterity in case everybody on earth are killed.

    well it took place during the tenth doctor so when ten visits jack at the bar. so he might know what happen. but in the overall story it's not important.

    Fair point. Just wondering why the writers wanted Gwen to think of him?

    True. Not disagreeing......But if they got The Doctor he would have had sent the 456 packing in 45 minutes and you'd have no mini series
