    Ooh I've actually got The Twilight Streets on my kindle but I just haven't got round to reading it
    And no I haven't oh dear this is making me look like a terrible fan haha, I completely forgot they did those audio plays! But after watching the first episode of Miracle Day and hating it I kind of forgot about Torchwood
    Read it :P

    No you don't! I doubt many torchwood fans even know the audio plays exist! You really should listen to them though! On one of them there is a really touching moment between Ianto and Jack! It did make me wonder if something would happen to Ianto or Jack in series 3, but I didn't think anything of it. I never thought they would kill Ianto off!! :eek:

    I actually have no idea why tbh :lol: I've always had a lot of love for the character I may be influenced by the actress being in series 1 episode 3 :lol:

    It took me soooo long to realise what you meant by series 1 episode 3, then I realised you meant the revived doctor who !:banghead:
    I admit she was good in that!!!

    I don't like her in torchwood though! She is just so unlikeable! (If that is a word. )

    Torchwood is one of my faves, hoping more series would get Commissioned.

    I have 3 favourite characters: Jack, Ianto and Gwen. Jack and Ianto for reasons already mentioned. Gwen because she kicks butt, I'm Welsh, POW.

    It just pains me that they'd kill off such great characters like Ianto, Tosh and Owen and yet Gwen is still alive :mad: she does my head in

    I love Gwen.

    What's your beef with Gwen?
    In my opinion

    Bad points
    She was so whiny and demanding!
    She was like Jack love me, love me all the time.
    She cheated on Rhys. (Who I love btw, after that I started to hate her. )

    Good points
    She is a strong independent women.
    Good in a fight.

    Bad points out-weigh good, therefore, I dislike Gwen.

    The main reason I don't like Gwen is because she cheated on Rhys too!
    He's so Welsh and adorable

    Also, no votes for John Hart? He is my second favourite after Owen.

    I actually quite liked Miracle day.

    It was nice to see a spectrum beyond just fighting aliens.

    And it was quite deep.

    I like Tosh and Owen its a shame they got killed off they would have made such a cute couple and those death scenes heartbreaking, although Iantos definitley topped those I miss the old team, hated Rex in Miracle day, he was so arrogant and awful then decided to throw the old teams deaths back in Jacks face He kinda grew on me at the end but I wish it was Esther who stayed alive not him... exactly how could he suddenly come back to life :confused: what makes Jack imortal is not in his blood, we learned that he was a fixed point in time and space in Doctor Who... Did the Americans not know that or something..
    It should have just stayed in the UK, I get a change is good and I quite like that they moved bits of Doctor Who to America now but the writers did a good job with that
    Starz just messed Torchwood up, I almost hope that there won't be another season if this is how its going to end up.
