A conflicted Torchwood team is surprised to see Captain Jack suddenly return to their lives, and though he tries to come back as if nothing had happened, Jack soon finds that some things have changed since his disappearance. There's little time for explanations, though, as a mysterious stranger from Jack's past steps through the rift, and he's on a mission that only the Torchwood team can help him finish. But it becomes quickly clear that Captain John Hart is not all he claims to be, and as usual, Captain Jack Harkness has some secrets of his own.Written by
"Torchwood" returns with a vengeance, bigger and better than before!
The new series of "Torchwood" sets out its stall early. With a bigger production budget now that the show has won a place on BBC2, the scale of the series has been increased. However, what will impress most fans is the introduction of new series regular, the one and only James Marsters.
With an amusing, if slightly illogical, car-chase opening, we are reintroduced to the "Torchwood" cast and it's great to see them back in action. I was slightly concerned when I read comments that there'd be a re-cut PG version as I expected the adult content of the show to be toned down in the evening slot. Thankfully, this isn't the case. There's violence and the air of debauchery throughout the show and it's genuinely difficult to see how this could be re-cut in a pre-watershed sanitised version.
8 out of 10. Great fun but I'm setting the bar here for this installment as I'm expecting much more from future episodes, judging from the tasty clips at the end of the show.
