disappointed, once more....

Right. That's it. I gave it a couple of episodes and swallowed my general scepticism about a 'more adult' Doctor Who spin-off. The alien who fed off orgasmic energy was bad enough, but I just watched tonight's episode on BBC3 and it was utter rubbish.

Sentimental. Stupid. Badly acted. Poorly scripted. The lot. The Cybermen were stupid in the last series of Doctor Who, and they were very ill-advised to bring them back.

Thanks but no thanks.

I have officially decided that Torchwood is shit.

I didn't much care for the last series of Doctor Who either. It started off alright, but the longer it went on, the more I found it to be childish and not half as clever as it thought it was.

There, I've said it.


15, 042 words. There's now a talking raven. He hasn't met the talking rats yet though.


  1. It was never going to be as good as Baywatch Nights, was it?

  2. My reactions are not quite as violent as yours. I'm faintly disappointed with it but as it's a spin-off of a series with dubious qualities, my expectations weren't that high.

    It's better than Celebrity Scissorhands!

    To be honest, I've been underwhelmed by all science fiction since Babylon 5 which kicked ass.

  3. God! 15000+?!

    I've stalled, myself.

  4. I haven't started my NaNo novel...guess that puts me a bit behind...

  5. There's nothing worse than bad sci-fi.

    Wow, you are really knocking off that novel, aren't you.

  6. I think linking it to Doctor Who in the last episode was a big mistake Didn't work.

    The whole episode seemed...arkward.
