    Default Children of Earth

    G'day,

    Here in Oz, Channel 11 just finished airing Torchwood: Children of Earth over the past 5 Mondays.

    I have to say - I'm sorry I ditched Torchwood early on in its original run, as this mini season was totally amazing television! Certainly the best of Torchwood, though admittedly it would mean a lot less without having seen at least some of the preceding seasons.

    Finally I understand/appreciate the bar scene in End of Time...

    I have to say, Capaldi kind of stole the show... I mean - upon seeing him, I was extremely interested to see his acting abilities, his screen presence... And initially was pretty disappointed. It is admittedly unfair to compare the character of Frobisher - a government suit... a penguin... I guess you could say... with that of the Doctor... And as such, is it fair to make a comparison? But as the series progressed, Capaldi/Frobisher really did start to dominate, and certainly by the time we see him walk into that bedroom with gun behind his back... *shudder*

    Gwen continues to do very little for me... and when I think about the US co production, and knowing she is in it.... I have to admit I've got little interest, despite the high of this season.

    Not entirely a coherent ramble, but anyways...


    cheers,
    cosmic

    I enjoyed Children of Earth, but I also very much enjoyed the more episode based Seasons 1 & 2. Season 3 & 4 are more like mini-series as all the episodes directly connect in one large story so I find them hard to directly compare to seasons 1 & 2.

    I didn't personally enjoy Season 4 as much as 3, but still an interesting story. I think it would have been better if it was shorter.

    I enjoyed all 4 seasons, but Children of Earth was my favorite.
