Torchwood‘s second season finale left many fans shocked. In one moment, viewers lost two fan favorite characters, Owen Harper (Burn Gorman) and Toshiko Sato (Naoko Mori). How can the series survive? The folks at Discover Magazine offer five ways to “fix” Torchwood. One of their suggestions is “More Sex”: “For a show that was supposed to combine Doctor Who and sex, lately there hasn’t been very much of the latter. Honestly, Captain Jack talks a good game and he smooched James Marsters, but Series 2 showed him to be a pretty sedate monogamist. Sure, he gets it on in the office, but so did George Costanza. On top of that, they killed off the two most sexually active Torchwood team members (Owen and Tosh). We really need to get back to the good old-fashioned interspecies deviant sex plots.” Agree? Disagree? What changes would you like to see for Season Three, if any?
Can Russell T. Davies nab fellow Welshperson Catherine Zeta-Jones to play the Timelord’s companion in a Doctor Who special? Imagine that. David Tennant and CZJ would sizzle together.(Den Of Geek)
Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
