The season 2 finale was awesome! In fact, that was the thing that got me hooked on the show. Even though I didn't know the whole history of what had gone on between the Doctor and Rose, it was still very accessible and engaging. I kind of think that I like Tennant a little more simply because he was the first "Doctor" that I saw in the role, but I will admit that there is something dark and edgy about Eccleston in general that is also pretty cool. I have two more episodes to watch from season 1 and then it's on to season 2.

Am I going to have to start DVR'ing Torchwood as well? *whine* lol. May as well, I suppose, and just get it over with.

I forgot to DVR Torchwood and missed the opener. Good thing they play the previous week's episode before the new one!!

The second episode of Torchwood, "Sleeper", was much darker than the first, and was really well written, with some difficult choices made by the team members.

This bodes well for the new season.

Hello all Who fans
Just thought I'd let you know that they've been showing trailers for the fourth season in cinema's all across the UK for the last week or so. The link below is the best that can be found, qualities not too great but it does look very exciting, sent a shiver down my spine anyway.

Loved both the 1st and 2nd Episodes of this season's Torchwood.

Am also loving Ianto's looks.... (you know his glances, his roll of the eyes....)

They're definitely trying to make Ianto less stiff this season, which is nice.

Episode 3 was a bit of a rehash of last season's Out of Time, but still decent.

Next week looks GOOD.

Still working my way through DW season 3. I just watched three absolutely FANTASTIC episodes. Human Nature/Family of Blood and Blink. Holy wow. I almost don't want to keep going for fear that the next episode(s) will be a letdown.

Human Nature/Family Of Blood is probably the high point of the new series. Maybe The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances two-parter, but that wasn't as moving.

Girl in the Fireplace was great too.

I've been a fan since 1988. Old version, TV movie, new version, love them all. Like the Brigadier said, "Wonderful chap, all of him!"

Really, really liked Eccleston. Tennant took me a little longer to warm up to, but I'm about halfway through Series Three and am really enjoying it. Really liked The Shakespeare Code and The Lazarus Experiment (poor Doctor, always getting slapped by his companion's mother! )

Torchwood is up to Episode 5, which airs tomorrow, I think. I wasn't crazy about last week's, "Adam", but I'm liking how John Barrowman is getting to stretch his acting chops more this season. I feel the high point so far is "Meat" (Episode 4), which really strengthened the bonds between everyone.

This week: A familiar face from Doctor Who joins the team!

I get so confused by the airings of this show (BBC3, BBC2, BBCA). "Reset" with Martha was last week and this week?

Which is why I like the internets.

There are a lot of Whedonesque elements/ideas battered about. "Adam" being a slightly tweeked rewrite of a Buffy episode, Captain Spike, Jack/Angel not being able to die, ever, at all.

Given some of the spoilers I've heard, there are more parallels to come.

I think I missed a week somehow. I have "Reset" (02x06) and "Dead Man Walking" (02x07) now.
