Will you be ready?
YES!!!! In a beautiful display of the universe’s goodness, Torchwood is returning–and not only that, but it’s returning with new writers, including the illustrious Jane Espenson! You may know her from Battlestar Galactica or Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
I, for one, am thrilled. See, Torchwood has a lot of potential. It’s dark, sexually charged, and intense (although sometimes a little melodramatic), but the best part of the show is its balance between heavy plots and witty dialogue. What better writer to walk that tightrope than Espenson? If anyone can do quick wit, it’s a Joss Whedon alum, and Battlestar Galactica practically invented heavy plots.
So, I’m excited to see what the new season has in store, especially given where Children of Earth left off. Jack’s in a bad place, but I think Gwen and Ianto can bring him back. By the way, RIP, Tosh and Owen.
