I take back what I said in this
post. Torchwood is not clichÃ©d sci-fi staple - it's utterly bonkers nonsensical tripe, though somehow it's still remarkably entertaining.
The only thing of interest now plotwise is finding out just how old Jack Harkness actually is.
Also, their CG artists could do with learning a thing or two about lighting - the monster fairies looked awful. We can do much better in real time on a games console these days, there's no excuse in pre-rendered stuff.
Also, they didn't seem to figure out the rather obvious problem of showing a woman taking photos with a flash, which ended up somehow lit from the side. In fact, the light fairies didn't cast any light on the world at all, though I can forgive that as it's harder to do.
