Re: 3.05: Children of Earth - Day Five

I must be easily pleased, I have loved Torchwood almost without exception from the vey first episode, yes there were a couple of episodes that were not as good as others but overall I haev been thoroughy entertained.
Having watched this new Children of Earth, which I have been completely absorbed in I have to wonder if there will be anymore Torchwood. Jack looks like he has had enough, will he come back. How can Gwen work at Torchwood and still raise a child, can't happen can it??? I will miss Torchwood but I just don't know if it will make it back to our screen which woll be very sad indeed.

Interference: You are brilliant!! Of course the dreamy Captain Jack does of course not age in any great hurry "I found a grey hair" Gwen's future baby could be a part of the new Torchwood Team.

Exactly my thought, tanga. With Gwen the last of the originals left on Earth, and, with all due respect, not having the sheer charisma of the Captain, and with the new baby to look after (I know, in an ideal world - but this is definitely not that...), would she be able to set it up again? Would the Foundation (presumably they access the funds - certainly I doubt they'd get anything from the Government after CoE) rebuild?

And then I read ctg's post above, and hope is renewed...

As one of the scorn-merchants on some of the earlier episodes, (actually a lot of the earlier episodes), however, I must say that Torchwood is almost unrecognisable from the early days. I just wish that they had started at this level - who knows what heights they'd be at now?...

Re: 3.05: Children of Earth - Day Five

I thought it was excellent - and very disturbing (I'm usually one for happy endings!)

One issue which hasn't been mentioned is the huge questions RTD raised about how many is too may to sacrifice? If it is unacceptable to sacrifice 10% - because each is individually important - why is it OK to sacrifice 1?
And if it OK to sacrifice one, where is the line drawn...10? 1%? 9.5%?

All my 'non-sci-fi' were talking about the show and debating the issues for ages.

Brilliant!

Re: 3.05: Children of Earth - Day Five

As long as the aliens do the culling and everyone is in the choice that isn't made by any human

99.9999% of the whole population

that is the threat we live with today from our own. Why treat aliens any differently - Don't they have rights too.

If freedom is a right isn't it worth paying for etc.

the survivers would /should make it their busness to pay the bast**ds back.

love and peace

Re: 3.05: Children of Earth - Day Five

Just joined these forms so missed commenting on the individual days - but I thought this was an excellent mini-series with only the 'concrete block' causing me belivablity problems.
Again the Human Race provide both the best and worse of life.

Depressing yes - but totally absorbing TV.

Cheers, daveac
