Sleeping Beauty

By DJ Forrest

  
Once upon a time, as most fairy tales go, in a kingdom, far far away, lived a king and queen who celebrated the christening of their only born daughter.  Seven fairies were invited to become godmothers, to the young princess.  With them they brought a golden casket that contained jewelled items.  An 8th fairy who had been overlooked, as many had thought her old or dead, came without physical gifts but gave a gift of an enchantment; that the princess would prick her finger on a spindle and die.

Well that's the thing, I don't know who I am, not exactly. It's been too long and if I did, something's are best kept out of the picture. The real Jack Harkness was a young and very /hot/ American Volunteer Group Captain serving in the Famous 133 Eagle Squadron. He died during a routine training excise in Cardiff, where he and his men, were taken by surprise by two formations of Messerschmitt. His plane had caught fire and got brought down; his men heard his screams over the radio and couldn't do anything for him. His body went missing,

How ‘Cyberwoman’
Regenerated the Issue Covers
By Mickie Newton

It’s a year since we first started the blog and for our birthday issue we thought it would be great to feature the best issue cover of the year. I had my favourite, as did DJ, as did others and it’s very fitting that the cover that people loved the best was the one that was the ‘first’ true magazine cover I created, the Cyberwoman cover of issue 5. And so I thought it would be fitting to write something about how the new cover idea came about and how it set the precedence for all the covers that followed.

Happy Birthday 1 Year Old Today

No one would have believed in the early years of the 21st century... oh wait, wrong script.  Hang on....  No one not even myself would have believed just how popular Torchwood still is amongst the fans.  It’s been three years since Miracle Day was first broadcast according to Digital Spy, so surely that means Torchwood is no more.  But far from it.  From the moment we put the idea together, drawn from sketches in the house, chatters amongst close friends on the social networking sites, an idea formulated, and testing the waters, we launched Project: Torchwood on the Twitter and Facebook Page on the 17th March 2013.  The website itself was still being created, work on articles and interviews, reviews, anything and everything we could think of was being put together in the first Issue.

Because I could not stop for death

In the episode ‘They Keep Killing Suzie’, Max recited the poem when he was incarcerated in the cells at the Hub.  He recited the poem over and over again, so much so that it triggered the lockdown of the complete building rendering the team completely helpless, unable to unlock the Hub or operate the computers, or call out for help.  Until of course, Ianto used the water tower as a conductor and Toshiko used the computer keyboard mainframe to type in the data required, but only once the book with the poems of Emily Dickenson had been acquired by DI Swanson at the local nick.

Cannibalism: The Dark Side of Humanity
By Echo Fain




Torchwood is, at its heart, a show about humanity, more so than the alien artifacts, phenomenon, and beings encountered by the Cardiff team.  It is only fitting that the topic of cannibalism should be stripped back to the metaphorical bone; according to the morality code of humankind, cannibalism is among the darkest acts we are capable of and is considered a taboo unlike any other.  If there's anything Torchwood is good at, it acknowledges the primitive and savage Id in us, from sex in all its colors to the comfort found in simple relationships to preying on one another for no apparent reason.

Cannibalism, unlike incest, is a topic that can be approached in the media without deeply divided censure, and Torchwood gives us a different sort of view, coming at the idea with dread and retribution against the

Cottingley Fairies – truth or fake?



‘A rational person doesn’t see fairies.’


The biggest misconception of the fairy race are that people think they are little creatures with tiny little wings and bathed in moonlight, that they are mystical and magical and can grant people wishes, sprinkle fairy dust and are happy little beings.

Captain Jack Harkness however didn’t believe all of that and called them malignant wraiths. 

Gwen Cooper didn’t believe in them at all.  She stated that the Cottingley fairies were fakes and that writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was ‘gaga at the time’ and his good friend Harry Houdini ‘was a self publicist’.


So is there any truth in their existence? Or are we letting our imagination run away with us?

Megalith and Barrow: Fairy Sightings in the United Kingdom
by Echo Fain



In the ancient world, fairies were seen as a part of the social and physical landscape.  Whether good or bad, they interacted with the environment and the humans who increasingly, with the progress of land development, encroached on their turf.  Regardless of their true origins, stone circles and barrow mounds are often associated with the elusive and dangerous chthonic beings we call the Fair Folk.

The United Kingdom and its associated nations have a reputation for its folklore and the archaeological remains of Neolithic culture.  Often, ghost stories and fairy warnings are attached to bodies of water, standing stones, megalith-strewn forests, and fallen Iron Age structures. 

Warnings about such locations stretch back into what could be considered a common mythology.  There were always others among us, in the wild and in the old places, who would rather be left alone.  They would sicken and steal children and livestock and stumbling into one of their gatherings was likely to result in disappearances.  People who visited these sites sometimes claimed to experience disorientation and fear, having heard music and laughter which came from within the hillside, abandoned castles and fortresses, and the thin air itself.

JASMINE'S VIEW
By William Green



Jasmine from "Small Worlds" clearly had reason to wish to leave her life as a human. A reclusive child like her typically would have imaginary friends. Imaginary friends seem to understand a child like this better than any human could, resulting in a feeling of security which the humans around the child could not create for her.

In Jasmine's case, however, REAL non-human friends filled the same role in her life which would normally be filled by imaginary friends in most other reclusive children’s' lives.
One of the worst experiences a child can have is the threat of being taken by a paedophile. The Faeries saved her from a paedophile, who was, of course, human.

Come away, O human child!
By W.B. Yeats

Where dips the rocky highland
Of Sleuth Wood in the lake,
There lies a leafy island
Where flapping herons wake
The drowsy water rats;
There we've hid our faery vats,
Full of berrys
And of reddest stolen cherries.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand.
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

Ianto Jones stepped from the lift to the raucous chatter of the team, and the screech of Myfanwy, who squawked overhead at the teams’ rather different game of Basketball – Owen was cheating.  Mogwai’s track We’re No Here played out until Owen dropped the ball through the hoop to take the game.  As the game and the team filed out of the Hub, Jack tossed the ball to Ianto without a hi or bye.  As the lift door closed, Ianto discarded the ball quickly.

‘She’s Alive!’
By DJ Forrest 




     In 1818 Mary Shelley wrote the novel ‘Frankenstein’.  It told of an eccentric scientist called Victor Frankenstein who created a monster in his laboratory and brought it to life using galvanism – direct current electricity, also known as voltaism. 
     As much as the experiment was a success the result of the creature coming to life scared Frankenstein enough that he fled the laboratory.  The monster itself also left the laboratory and lived in a peasants woodshed, afraid to show its face due to its deformities, and only coming out at night to eavesdrop on the family inside to listen to their conversation, learning from them how to speak for itself.  It also befriended the blind father of the family who was unable to view its disfigurement and formed a friendship, strengthening its ability to converse and learn more skills.  However on the return of the family, it was driven away.

Cyberwoman's Origins: Sexy (& Sexist?)
by Echo Fain







Author's Warning: I'm playing Devil's Advocate here, in places.





'There's a very long history of sexy, pneumatic, hydraulic women in science fiction.'  --Russell T. Davies, "Torchwood Declassified".


Let's face it, science fiction has a history of being sexist.  It's been said a lot recently and while it's possible that robotic women are used to objectify the human female form, sometimes it is more about the question of history.  Robotic form fascinates us; it is the same but different.  A perfect robotic woman would be woman-like without all the icky human foibles and flaws.  Humanity seeks progress and perfection, often at the same time.  The more human the gynoid looks, the better we like and/or fear it.

Lachlan Nieboer
By DJ Forrest

Captain Jack Harkness’ brother Gray first appeared on our screens during the episode ‘Adam’ but then only as the young boy who we learned through Jack’s memories had been taken by a creature most horrible, and feared by those on the Boeshane Peninsula.  Jack carried that burden of letting go of Gray’s hand forever. 

In the episode ‘Fragments’ towards the end of the second season we saw an older Gray pictured clamped in irons standing beside Captain John Hart and for all intents and purposes, his prisoner.  But the one thing we’ve come to learn about John Hart is that not everything is as it seems, and the final episode of Season Two, the boot was definitely on the other foot, and Gray was most definitely in charge.  Luring his brother into a thousand years before Cardiff ever existed, he drew Jack back to open fields and grasslands, strode towards him and plunged a knife deep into Jack’s chest and watched him die.  But aware of his Lazarus qualities, knew that the only way to punish him was to bury

Ghost Machine
Episode 3
Created by: Russell T Davies
Written by: Helen Raynor
Produced by: Richard Stokes
Directed by: Colin Teague




It’s a damp evening on the streets of Cardiff, two operatives are running along the pedestrian walkway towards the High Street Arcade in hot pursuit of an unidentified alien threat.  Gwen and Owen pound along the semi quiet streets dodging hoodies on push bikes and out along towards the Arcade minutes before it closes for the day.  Toshiko back in the Hub feeds them details through their ear pieces where the alien threat is heading.  Jack Harkness is driving towards the location in the SUV.  Gwen is ahead of Owen charging along the walkway leading out towards the railway ticket office and ticket gates. Her visual has been identified on the CCTV as a white male wearing a hoody.  Gwen closes in on her target.  Jack having now parked up catches up with Owen. The chase is on.  After climbing over the ticket gate and losing ground on Gwen, the hooded male struggles on through a group of pedestrians but the gap is closing and Gwen is onto him, grabbing onto his coat and refusing to give up. 


But he slips the coat and breaks for freedom. 

Out of breath Gwen is annoyed to have lost the suspect but Toshiko is convinced that what Gwen is holding has the alien artefact.  Slipping her hand inside the coat Gwen brings out a curved device with a depressed circular button in the centre of flashing orange and blue lighting.  When her impulse

 “You saw an echo of a moment amplified by alien technology...”



Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Lewis
17 years old
Only child of Mabel Ann Lewis
Lived at Hafod Street
Died March 29th, 1963
Raped and murdered on Penfro Street

Report by Dr. Owen Harper, Torchwood Officer 565

After the incident at the railway station, Captain J. Harkness wanted to reconstruct the same test again, which meant that Gwen would have to revisit her ‘ghost’ who we discovered to be still alive and living in Butetown. When the Captain threw the ‘ghost device’ to me beneath the canal bridge on Penfro Street, after the failed door to door trying to locate ‘Burnie’ Sean Harris, the alien device began to light up, not only did it light up, I was thrown back to the year 1963.

Authors noteThis is a ‘what if’ situation. What if the Team had been able to find a way to interview the young Ed Morgan?

Mickie

Report on Young Edwin Morgan
By Captain Harkness

Personal Notes:  After much deliberation it was decided to make use of some alien tech we had in our archives. No idea where it is from, but it came through the rift 35 years ago. After some tests we found it had some temporal displacement qualities and after some jiggery pokery Toshiko has linked it to the Quantum Transducer, giving us the ability to physically move a ‘ghost’ from one point of time to ours, though it is only for a limited period and of 1 hour and 25 minutes, approximately, then the subject simply fades out and vanishes.

So we’re hoping to maybe gain something from Ed Morgan, the younger, or at least see how this combined tech works out and if it could be useful in the future. In this case I suspect not.

Jane Espenson




Born July 14th 1964, in Ames, Iowa, Jane Espenson wrote her first script before she had left junior school!  It was perhaps inevitable that Jane would grow up to become a television writer and producer!

Anthony Lewis




Tommy Brockless, is a young soldier from the First World War who having been shell shocked and cryogenically preserved in the Torchwood vaults for almost a century, is brought back to life one day a year to be routinely checked over and made ready for when he is needed to save the world.  Tommy has to return to 1918 in order to stop time from splitting bringing events of his era into the present.  But as he returns to St Teilo hospital he forgets his mission as his shell shock and post traumatic stress disorder returns and although he carries the Rift Key to bed with him, he is unsure what it is or what it does.  It takes for Toshiko to tap into that time and locate Tommy and encourage him to turn the Rift Key and close that particular rift.

Anthony Lewis, born 31st March 1983 in Leeds, West Yorkshire is the middle brother of Chris, and Matthew, who you may remember seeing in Harry Potter as Neville Longbottom, he also has a foster sister, Cyndi.

Jonathan Owen 
“Is it ‘coz I’m Welsh?” 
(Svengali) 



Jonathan Owen first came to our attention, (those that move in Torchwood circles) as Banana Boat in ‘Something Borrowed’ (2007) Series Two.  He played Rhys’ best man.  He came as one part of a double act, the other being Mervyn. Sadly Mervyn was dinner for the nostrovite, while Banana Boat was spun in a sticky black web with Toshiko Sato as a snack for later – thankfully he was saved from that by the Torchwood team. 

Jonathan Owen has appeared in a number of programmes and films which feature some of Wales’ finest actors and actresses especially Eve Myles. 

In ‘A Bit of Tom Jones?’ (2009) written, produced and directed by Peter Watkins-Hughes and shot entirely on location in Tredegar and filmed in the summer of 2007, Henry Fielding – Jonny, is approached by a mysterious woman in a late night bar who offers to sell him the severed ‘manhood’ of Wales’ greatest vocal entertainer.  Believing he can make a killing selling the infamous appendage onto obsessive fans, Henry stumps up the cash. Eve Myles stars as Sally Fielding. It’s a comedy and worth a view, and came out on DVD in April 2010.  It won the Best Film award at the BAFTA Cymru

Justin Richards





Justin Richards has written a considerable amount of Doctor Who books.  He is the Creative Consultant to BBC Books for all their Doctor Who titles. 
It is clear to see from the extensive writing list on Wikipedia that Justin loves to write for children young and old, and those of us who refuse to grow up.  From writing Doctor Who for Virgin Books from 1994-2000, BBC Books from 1998 onwards, Justin writes for various Doctors including Eighth, Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh.  He’s an ultimate fan of the Daleks, I don’t think I’ve met anyone yet who actually hates them!

I have a collection of Justin’s novels on my bookshelf, from Clockwork Man with the 9th Doctor and Rose Tyler, The Deviant Strain with Captain Jack Harkness, 9th Doctor and Rose Tyler, The Resurrection Casket with 10th Doctor and Rose Tyler, Death Riders with 11th Doctor and Amy Pond, and Doctor Who Files

Day One

Music soundtrack by Ben Foster

     It’s early evening and the night sky is pitch over Cardiff.  Something is hurtling through the atmosphere, large judging by the sound of the roar.  In the 10 pin bowling alley, Gwen Cooper is enjoying annihilating her boyfriend Rhys’ scores, while the Kaiser Chief’s belt out ‘Saturday Night’. 
     The sound of the roar across the night sky has intensified but still it’s unclear what is making its way towards the busy city below. 
     Later on in the evening Gwen and Rhys exit the cinema, the boring film rendering Gwen asleep before the end. 
     The roar above is getting louder as it drops in altitude.

James Goss


     It has to be said that James Goss has captured Rhys Williams perfectly in every drama story he’s written.  In ‘Ghost Train’ the story is told from Rhys’ point of view.  There’s no guns toting and wild screaming chases throughout the streets of Cardiff, there’s no casual grin of a Captain, there’s just Rhys, 100% human, no bullshit, Rhys, who has lost a cargo of fridges and no matter how many times he tries to ask Gwen for help, she’s off as usual defending the planet, this time from fiery beasts.


     In First Born, Rhys and Gwen are on the run, it’s a prequel to Miracle Day, and they find themselves taking refuge in a static caravan in a remote part of North Wales, and Gwen has just given birth to Anwen.  What strikes me as interesting about this book is

The story touches upon many subjects, such as assisted suicide, dementia and the usual trials of life that pass in and out of the

Born in 1974 in the small Welsh town of Pontllanfraith, Ross O’Hennessy grew up knowing that he wanted to tread the boards like all the Welsh greats.  He studied hard and followed his dreams to London where he split his time between auditioning for Drama Schools and auditioning for the National Youth Theatre.   Before long he was soon treading the boards in several Youth Theatre productions including Shakespeare’s The Tempest.

Having met Lionel Bart after a successful run in the West End, Ross then attended Theatrical school to harness his natural acting abilities and moved to Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts after winning the Sir John Mills Scholarship.  He had been personally chosen over a large number of budding actors by screen legend Sir John Mills himself.

Michelle: Jack's role evolving into a leader, much more serious and a little dark.  (Also meeting Ianto wasn't so bad either :P)

Echo Fain: favourite part:  the first dark look at Jack, a character whom I'd never seen in such light before.

Tera:  This is my top fave episode because it was the first episode that launched the whole series, & it brought Captain Jack back to our screens.

Mickie:  Jack was different to the guy in Doctor Who.  Still naughty but he'd grown as a person.  The Jack we met in Albion hospital couldn't have run Torchwood.  He needed to LIVE first!

If you could take home an alien artefact what would it be?

Taking a look at what should have been, could be or simply would make an interesting idea. There are so many possibilities...What If?

It was just after Torchwood: Miracle Day had finished, and I was waxing lyrical about how I thought it had been the best Torchwood we had received, a view not shared by everyone.

Roleplayers
By D.J. Forrest



Roleplay – the ability to act without a script and often without fully knowing the intention of the other persons mind but still being able to put a coherent response to their comment.

In the beginning as children we played with toys, with figures and horses and soldiers, and aliens and dolls and cars and many many other items that gave us a sense of play.  We’d play on our own or we’d play with others, we’d imagine our characters, sometimes ourselves to have superhuman powers, be able to achieve and master many skills, more than we could ever do.  Our characters could dive from the highest board and swim to the bottom of the ocean without the use of breathing apparatus.  We’d have abilities to walk on water, through walls, to move objects, to blast with our eyes, to move mountains, to fly ships, to

First of all what does the word Cosplay mean.  When I first started cosplaying I did not realise what the word meant but it is a mash up of two words. Costume and Play and we who do Cosplay are known as Cosplayers.  The term Cosplay was penned in 1983 by Nobuyuki Takahashi of the Japanese studio ‘Studio Hard’ while he attended the World Con event in LA.  Many people including myself believed that Cosplay originally came from Japan, which is not true and the first Cosplay costume

Richard Briers
14 January 1934 – 17 February 2013 


My earliest memories of Richard Briers came from childhood.  Being an avid fan of children’s TV I remember switching on and enjoying programmes such as SkylArk (1976) which was an animated show lasting approximately 5 minutes.  SkylArk was loosely based on the story of Noah’s Ark, with Noah and Nelly his wife, collecting up all the strange and wonderful creatures, and loading them onto their ship.  Richard Briers narrated most of the voices for this programme; Peter Hawkins was co- narrator.  Two years before (1974) another favourite 5 minute film created again by Grange Calverley and animated by Bob Godfrey was Roobarb.  Roobarb was a green dog who always got into scrapes and was often set up by a pink cat called
