Torchwood: The 19th Century is when everything changes
The sex columnist Dan Savage has recently been fronting a campaign to reassure isolated and often depressed queer kids that "it gets better."
I'm very sad to say that there's no getting better in Torchwood: Miracle Day.
Not for the people living in that world, not for the viewers in this one and certainly not for any attempt to offer us even a semblance of respectful story-telling.
As the saying goes, Fool me once, shame on you; fool me nine times, shame on me.
More fool, I.
Clearly determined to never give the suckers an even break, the penultimate entry in the Torchwood: Miracle Day demolition derby thumbs its nose at even the most modest expectations of its viewers.
Snark, sighs and spoilers galore but, I hope, not too much of a synopsis, all at Torchwood: 62 Days Later.
