“Excuse me. Have you seen a blowfish driving a sports car?”
So begins series two of BBC Cymru’s (Wales) “Torchwood”. As I recall, Demonweed doesn’t hate TV and gets BBC America, so he’ll likely be aware of this extraordinary television series.
A spin-off from the revived ‘Doctor Who’ franchise, my former wife and current friend Wendolyn told me about ‘Torchwood’ a couple of years back and I hunted down some episodes – becoming an immediate fan. Revolving around the charismatic ‘Captain Jack Harkness’, Torchwood is ‘outside the government, beyond the police’.
Sort of like a ‘UFO’ for grownups, it’s a difficult show to categorise – based in Cardiff, Wales, Captain Jack and his team hunt down and stop alien and temporal miscreants. Sometimes funny, sometimes highly emotional, always interesting…
Sky Harbor gives it an enthusiastic “Two Fins Up!”
