Just caught on an article with the writer of the infamous Torchwood scene that killed off Ianto. He tries to give his take on why it happened. The first thing he said was, "Russel wanted it to happen." *rolls eyes* Thanks ever so. Anyway, here's the snippet from that section
“The strength of Torchwood and Russell’s vision is that you don’t know the heroes are going to survive. That’s been well established now!

“That adds a sense of jeopardy to the show which leaves everyone wondering what will happen next.”

He added Ianto’s death also allowed him to illustrate one of the costs of immortality for Captain Jack.

“In my mind, I was always aware that Jack had gone through this situation many times before, and that was really interesting to me. How do you have a relationship and fall in love with someone when you know – absolutely know – you will be around to see them die?


“That’s a real tragedy that Jack has to carry around with him, as well as a fascinating weight to hang around a character’s shoulders.”

Just watched the entire season 3 of Doctor Who on Netflix (instant). It's the only season I've never seen all the way through.

I gotta say, I love the interaction between Captain Jack and the Doctor.


You gotta know this was coming, but does anyone have any recs or links for Doctor/Jack slash? Short or long, doesn't matter. I'm just curious.

Inquiring minds want to know and all that... o.0

Doood. Series finale of Stargate Atlantis on January 9th.

Nooooooooo!!!

What the hell am I supposed to do with my Fridays now? *sniff*

Wait. When does Torchwood start up again, and who's gonna have 'em for download? *looks hopeful*

Been watching Torchwood thanks to [livejournal.com profile] txrabbit. Gotta love her. Took me awhile to get to watching the episodes though because my mom's computer dvd drive went out, so I bought a new one (but the new one has lightscribe).

Love it very much! I now know why it doesn't air on SciFi channel. Quite a bit more... risqué than Doctor Who.

How much more is there? I've got two seasons and I'm almost done with those. What are they on now?



Now for the questions:
  • Where did Jack go at the end of season one? Was there a corresponding episode in Doctor Who? I have two episodes from season 4 on the discs, but I figured they went with the end of season 2 or something.

    ANSWERED: Had this one answered myself by watching Season 3 of Doctor Who.
  • I'm a bit conflicted about the chemistry between Jack and Gwen. Obviously Jack feels something strong for her, but he has this relationship with Ianto and keeps going back to him. I can't help but think whatever Jack feels for him isn't what Gwen feels. Strong yes, but different. Any clues for the curious?
  • Ignore this plea from the person who so doesn't need another fandom, but are there a few Jack/Ianto fics I can dip into? I'm curious for something that might address Jack's feelings (whatever they are) with Gwen. Does such a fic exist?
