My favorite episode of Doctor Who is probably Turn Left. How one tiny little thing can change the world, whether you decided to turn right or turn left. And in telling the story, a time-travel type story (but not exactly), they manage to integrate the rest of the Doctor Who universe. [...]
Can’t wait until tonight! Been waiting a year for more Torchwood after their (way too) short 5 episode mini-series last summer. Originally a more mature Doctor Who spinoff (scramble the letters for the anagram). It was previously on BBC but it looks like Starz is running with Torchwood now.
Gwen Cooper, [...]
I’m not one for much fan fiction but this is a pretty good Torchwood story. It’s titled “Countdown” and I’d estimate that it takes place shortly before Children of Earth (season 3).
It’s listed as Torchwood Virtual Series (Season) three, episode two so I guess I should look around for [...]
The Doctor is on the BBC in just a few hours, I’d say it’s on today, but it’s still yesterday in Michigan, but it’s already tomorrow in the UK.
It’s one of the last few Russell T. Davies episodes and it’s written with/by Phil Ford who’s done a few (eight!) Sarah Jane [...]
If you’re a Doctor Who or Torchwood fan I found a great piece of The Face of Boe fan-fiction. I’m normally not a fan, but this is so well done I wanted to share it.
From The Book of the Face of Boe:
Chapter 12, verse 19:
Here’s this week’s Manic Monday questions:
Both were really easy to answer, at least there were to me.
Would you rather go a week without bathing, but be able to change your clothes, or a week without a change of clothes, but be able to bathe?
Even though I like to take showers, I think [...]
So this isn’t a chronology timeline, but more of a viewing guide on when to watch the TV episodes as they tie together with Torchwood. This is the order I believed they originally aired the episodes and watching them in that order works well.

So I’ve mentioned Torchwood a few times in the past. But it’s the start of Torchwood month, so it’s time to talk about it some more.
For the next few days Wednesday-Friday they are doing audio plays on BBC radio 4, you can listen to these live at 2:15 London time or [...]
Woo Hoo! More guest stars!!! And now on to the good stuff…
WARNING!!! BIG SPOILERS BELOW!
The dialog in Midnight made me think “David Mamet meets Doctor Who”, it’s just a lot of people abruptly talking and not listening (and even when they are, they aren’t paying attention).
So the second season of Torchwood has started up. In case you haven’t seen it, it’s a semi-secret organization with the job of finding (and removing) aliens and acquiring their technology to better protect Earth.
“Torchwood: outside the government, beyond the police. Tracking down alien life on [...]
As you all know I love time-travel, and while never being a Doctor Who fan this new (started in 2005) series is just brilliant! In case you didn’t know, the new Doctor Who is produced (and sometimes written) by Russell T. Davies (Queer as Folk and Torchwood) so it’s not your grandpa’s sci-fi [...]
