I liked Christopher Echelson, he was cocky but also caring at the same time. He was more of a fighter then the Doctor’s since and he tried not to take any crap. But part of why I liked him was that while he was tough he also had a soft side.

My first post about Doctor Who over 5 years ago and was about the ninth doctor.

DrwhoThe Doctor: (Asking Jack about his raygun) Sonic blaster… 51st Century… Weapon factories at Villengard?
Capt. Jack Harkness: Yeah. You’ve been to the factories?
The Doctor: Once.
Jack: They’re gone now, destroyed. Main reactor went critical. Vaporised the lot.
The Doctor: Like I said, once. There’s a banana grove there now. I like bananas. Bananas are good.

I’d have liked to have seen nine with Donna…

Supposedly he left Doctor Who so he wouldn’t get typecast and while he’s done a few different types of things he’s gotten typecast a lot in the SciFi type shows and movies and I don’t think he has any Doctor Who interest any more. That’s too bad (IMHO), since Tennant reigned for three-plus seasons and Matt Smith looks like he’ll be around for three (even Amy is around for three) and pretty soon Alex Kingston will have been around longer than anyone! Maybe he’s happy, but having a bunch of fans for life seems to be a good way to be.

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, guns and a happy baby.
What more can you ask from the 21st Century*?

Capt. Jack Harkness, always the flirt. Even after falling off a building.

Gwen is pretty much a street cop gone super-duper secret-agent. The baby is new, I assume hers and Rhys (her husband) but she might just be rescuing it. Capt. Jack, well let’s just say he’s pretty hard to kill, and decided that Earth is his favorite planet to live on. And the flirt part, he’ll flirt with anything, any gender, any species; not sure how much they’ll follow through with this, since it appears they’re moving to America, I’m treating it as a reboot.


Available in HD.

I actually saw this trailer in the theater the other day. Not in a sci-fi show, but before the new Woody Allen movie…

* “The 21st Century is when everything changes…” although I’m not sure if they’re still following that theme.
