Continuity Errors on Torchwood


Over the years there have been any number of continuity errors on Torchwood, I can name on one hand the ones I remember the best of, but I'm wondering how many you guys can recall. Some are blindingly obvious while others take a bit of reviewing and hitting the playback button on the remote.

Torchwood Returns to Audio

The most exciting news to come out of January has to be the news of Torchwood’s return if only with Radio plays but it’s coming back and that is good news.  We asked the fans what they thought to the news and the views were mixed.  Reached 447 views.


~Jack~ What's great to know is that Torchwood hasn't been abandoned, by the actors or by the writers and it's wonderful news to know that RTD will be at the helm again.

DIARY OF A WOODY WHOVIAN
By “Bone Muncher”

How does one explain to ones fellow men and women that you are a sci-fi fan, a passionate geek, the nerd in the back of the class reading the Hitch Hikers Guide to avoid calculus?  When I was that young…. Some decades ago now, being that ‘that way’ inclined was rather like having the plague, especially for a girl. It rather explains why I only had a few friends and those I had were the best.

What does Torchwood mean to you?

Torchwood means different things to different people but what does Torchwood mean to you?


John Bond-Winstone

Torchwood has opened the viewers to acceptance of different sexualities. Nothing has really done this on TV since Queer as Folk.... well that’s RTD for you.. Torchwood is about accepting these differences instead of fearing them.

What does Torchwood mean to you?
By DJ Forrest


As a kid I grew up watching Doctor Who, hiding behind sofas when the Daleks and Davros came on.  I had favourite shows I wouldn’t miss an episode of, even racing through a driving lesson to be sure I got home before Miami Vice credits had even begun to roll.  And as much as I was a fan and I would collect all the memorabilia of this show and others like it, my crazy fan like behaviour was going to go into over drive much later in adulthood when Doctor Who returned and my attention was drawn to the skinny man in the suit wearing Converse.  But before he appeared, Christopher Eccleston took my attention, and an American in a great coat that looked way too big for him, a con man, a man you weren’t too sure about, and even when he was left behind during the episode ‘Parting of the Ways’ you never expected to find him in 2006 in an underground organisation, with 4 other people working with him protecting the planet Earth from alien attack.

#IantoJonesDay


Hashtag Ianto Jones Day was celebrated across Twitter on the 19th August 2014, as a mark of respect for a much missed member of the Torchwood team.  Ianto Jones was more than just a tea boy, or coffee boy for that matter.  He was an integral part of the Torchwood Hub, he was a walking encyclopedia, knowing all there was to know about more parts of the underground base than even Captain Jack was aware of. 
Because while Jack was out catching the aliens and scavenging what he and the team could, of crashed alien ships etc, Ianto Jones was cataloguing and updating files in the Archives, that and keeping an eye on his cyber girlfriend in the basement.  But that aside, we celebrate Ianto’s birthday, in a coming together of friendship across the globe, of fans who love and still miss...Mr Ianto Jones.

Buffy’s Boys

By Kirsty Price


Ethan Rayne


 



If you say the name Robin Sachs to a Non-Buffy fan, chances are they wouldn't have a clue who you were talking about. Robin played a human who has had a few of his own episodes, his first being Halloween in Season 2, where our gang bar Cordy all change into their costumes. And by that I mean really change.  Willow wore a ghost costume and became a ghost. Xander was a soldier, turning into soldier boy. And our Heroine she wore a most beautiful pink 18th-century gown, becoming a weak simpering 18th century noble woman not the Slayer we know and need.

Artwork fascinates me, probably because I’m often in awe of the talent that is around, of artists who can transform an image or create an image so perfect you have to wonder if it’s an actual photograph that you’re viewing.  Or an artist who uses pencil to create a detailed drawing from memory, without fault or error of design, and as much as I know I can draw, I could never match the talent of a natural creative artist.

I love art.  Whether it be a painting or a sketch, animation or a sculpture.  Recently with the introduction of digital media, the artwork on display of fan drawings with the use of Photoshop has simply blown me away.  Not everyone can use Photoshop to its full potential, personally I wouldn’t know where to start, but with a paper and a pencil I know what I’m doing, to a point.

He is a part of Torchwood - he just doesn't know it yet!

Suzie Costello



Once again it became impossible to locate a lot of interesting fan art of Suzie Costello, in the same way as it was difficult locating interesting fan art of Toshiko Sato.  So it was left again to random searches for artwork which was just that little bit different.  Although we located one Suzie, it was more comic than hand drawn artwork.  But it’s still interesting.  Along our search we also located some Jack and Ianto hand drawn art which I love, and some team Torchwood.

Fan Art



This month’s fan art was initially based upon Greeks Bearing Gifts and Toshiko Sato, but searching on the internet didn’t turn up many pieces of artwork that weren’t in some way leaning towards Anime, and often didn’t really cover Toshiko as we know her in Torchwood.  However one particular drawing featured by artist atlantiss505 captured my eye, the bold and striking black and white sketch of our tech wizard, Toshiko, was almost flawless by design.  Such attention to detail, and although I’m no art buff I know what I like, and this artist covered every basis and ticked every box.

The 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who

Day of the Doctor



 By Antje Strauch

So yesterday was the big day, and of course my Doctors wanted to come to the cinema as well to see their show on the big screen. I had to smuggle them in in my bag, as I hadn't bought a ticket for them. Then again, I probably could have, as old as they are, they could have gotten pensioner's discount. Anyway, here are some pictures of our journey to Chemnitz!

I already started to regret taking them before we even had taken off. They were fighting for the best seat in the car like children.

Torchwood & Me
By Chloe Robertson


It was last year, of which I found Torchwood, and it found me and took me into its universe of fandom. Glancing at the lifeless shows of normal telly, I was bored. Being with Virgin Media, and their subscription, I found On Demand and many Doctor Who episodes! However, to get there, I had to go through options of what category it was. Scrolling down the categories, I would select Sci-Fi, and at the top of the list, there it was; a universe of episodes of Doctor Who. I looked down the list as it spoke of

Greetings from Portugal Torchwood Agents around the world!

By Gabriela Phalempin


Through Twitter I’ve kindly been invited to post my tribute to this show that I’ve grown to enjoy. When I say grow, I mean it literally, because I’ve never been a sci-fi fan. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a proud geek and bookworm, but apart from the Star Wars saga, the style has never quite kicked in on me.
A friend of mine – a true Whovian – not only introduced me to Doctor Who, but explained to me the intersection of the two shows and their creators and writers. I’m not a connoisseur and, as far as Doctor Who goes, I’ve seen some episodes on and off. David Tennant and Matt Smith I adore and Alex Kingston is just brilliant. Some episodes really grabbed me, but others not so much, I must confess.

Who would be your dream cast for Exodus Code’s Ice Maiden and pilot Renso?


During a recent interview with the writers of Exodus Code, John & Carole Barrowman, a question was put to them about who they considered their dream cast for the Ice Maiden Crew and Renso.  As John threw the question back at us, and as we hadn't really considered who we’d have, we thought we’d ask you guys who you thought would fit the bill.

Favourite Countrycide Moment




There are many scenes in Countrycide that stick in our memory, from Gwen Cooper’s ‘snogging’ question that caused an awkward moment between Ianto and the team, the ‘Moment’ between Owen and Gwen and if that watcher hadn’t cracked the twig, would they have given in to temptation.  There’s the scenes with the cannibals after they capture Ianto and Toshiko, and the many times poor Ianto winds up on the floor, but my special moment has to be when Jack threatens to torture the cannibal and my stomach somersaults several times, imagining if I as a character were ever unfortunate enough or ‘lucky’ enough to ever be in that position with Captain Jack Harkness!!!

Torchwood in the wild – Countrycide

By Claudia Lindner





What for me really is the most amazing thing about Countrycide is that it's such a classic horror movie episode. In the age of CGI, this is very rare. I don't say I don't like CGI, that's fantastic, too, e.g. if you watch the episode before Countrycide, Small Worlds. But in Countrycide, it's the good, almost old-fashioned  hand-crafted horror which fascinates me and which makes it so awesomely creepy. The hacked bodies, the blood everywhere and those hanged piles of human meat wrapped in plastic in that countryhouse for example made the scene with Tosh and Ianto being in the hands of those village cannibals one of the creepiest and scariest of all Torchwood episodes scenes ever.
