Torchwood gets another year on iPlayer

My lockdown rewatch of Torchwood has been crawling along and I did wonder if I’d reach the end of even series 1 before it left iPlayer. I now know (thanks to the Doctor Who Companion) it has been extended: TORCHWOOD AVAILABLE TO WATCH ON BBC IPLAYER FOR ANOTHER YEAR AFTER FAN SUPPORT ON SOCIAL MEDIA.…

Torchwood 1.8: They Keep Killing Suzie

My Torchwood rewatch has stalled a little, and I’ve neglected to keep the log up to date. I re-watched They Keep Killing Suzie ages ago, and never got around to writing it up! It’s time for Suzie Costello to take centre stage, and that despite being killed already! I was impressed with this episode at…

Torchwood 1.7 Greeks Bearing Gifts

Greeks Bearing Gifts was an episode of Torchwood series 1 I remembered well. I knew it was about Tosh and her relationship with the team, but I’d forgotten just how compelling Daniela Denby-Ashe was as alien Mary. The story has some similar themes to earlier episodes with the exploitation of alien tech for personal ends,…

Torchwood 1.5 Small Worlds

My Torchwood rewatch takes me to Small Worlds by PJ Hammond. I didn’t remember much about it from broadcast but since became quite interested to watch it.

Torchwood 1.4 Cyberwoman

My rewatch of Torchwood has finally drifted into series 1 episode 4, Cyberwoman by Chris Chibnall. I was unsure about it on transmission and I’m still unsure. I will try to explain why.

Torchwood on Mars and other 2020 releases

Big Finish has announced details of the most varied selection of new Torchwood titles I can remember since they started. Hold onto your hats! Sgt Andy Davidson is fresh from Baker Street and the Eighth Doctor Stranded range and here he is, back in Torchwood and on Mars! Full details follow…

Doctor Who Stranded 1.3 Must-see TV

The first Eighth Doctor set of Stranded stories continues (from Wild Animals) with Lisa McMullin’s Must-see TV. The Doctor, Liv and Helen are still trapped in London 2020, and we have arrivals in the form of Sgt Andy Davidson (Tom Price) and Mr Bird (Clive Wood). Science fiction is back on the agenda but we’re…

Torchwood Soho — Parasite details released

Big Finish has announced details for upcoming Torchwood boxset — Torchwood Soho — Parasite. It is (of course) more adventures for Sgt Andy Davison, fresh from Baker Street in Doctor Who: Stranded (or maybe before?!) and Norton Folgate. Lots of great actors and a different type of storytelling. Good news is Big Finish still expects…
