We had been looking around for Torchwood and were trying to justify the in-store prices. Buying it online saved us $50. Our love of Cpt. Jack Harkness sprang from Doctor Who, and in following the Whovian legacy, it seemed like Torchwood was the next bandwagon to jump on - even if we were a little behind the times. Torchwood is so unlike Doctor Who. The pace, the darker themes, the sex, and even the bloodier encounters with aliens and monsters is not for everyone. To be honest, with all of the detachment issues that all of the characters seem to possess in Season One, it was purely our determination to like the series that got us through. By Season Two, we were invested, and the additional Season, Children of Earth, was everything we love about TV dramas. If only Miracle Day was included in this package, but at least it's not a difficult Season to find.
