A confession: I have not seen any of Torchwood: Children of Earth. Not because I don’t want to, but because I am neither (a) in the UK nor (b) wise to the ways of torrents or streams or however my fellow American fans are watching. (Probably not via Megaupload, since oh my god, it literally took me three days to download the first episode. If someone were to give me a clue in an e-mail, I would be hugely grateful.) Despite my failure to keep abreast of canon, I am aware of recent developments — just the bare facts, not the exact circumstances — and dammit, I want a hug.
I also want to write a long post comparing this to certain events in the Sherlock Holmes and Star Trek canons, but I’m at work and I have to be logged off and shut down by 1 p.m. because we’re being moved to new offices over the weekend, so that will have to wait.
In the meantime, remember: You Know Who would not approve of pointless violence, so no burning down RTD’s office or home, tempting as that idea may be right now.
