Torchwood: Children of Earth

July 10, 2009

If you live in the UK then grab the episodes onto your iPlayer now. If you live outside the UK get the DVD as soon as you can or find a way to watch it. The five successive days of Torchwood represented the sort of outstanding drama that makes the BBC unique and justifies the license fee. I won’t spoil the story, but this was not goody and baddy science fiction. It was a well thought through morality play, and one in which there was no right answer, no easy way, only hard choices. You could teach an entire ethics course on the material covered. Eve Myles is at her raven haired best, her witness to the end, before the resolution an outstanding script wonderfully portrayed, made all the more poignant by her pregnancy.
