OMG! It's 2008! OMG! WTF? ETC!
Welcome back, hope you all experienced a proper Christmas, and had your stomachs pumped once or twice, or at the very least punched an elderly relative. Cause that's what it's all about, really. We ate too much, drank too much, didn't leave the house for a full week, and went slightly insane. Which is also what Christmas is all about.
Doctor Who and Torchwood news ahoy: If you caught the Doctor Who Christmas spectacular, then you will have seen two trailers at the end, one for Doctor Who series 4, one for Torchwood series 2. But Jimbo, I hear you cry, I am a FOOL, and managed to miss all of the above! Fear not, you big monkey, because the DWs4 trailer can be found here - OMG! Giant wasps! Agatha Christie! Sontarans! UNIT! Pompeii! Explosions! Running! Corridors! Shootybangbang! - while the TWs2 trailer (which is much shorter and doesn't show very much) can be viewed here - OMG! Aliens! Gadgets! Sexy people! Some weird smoke thing! James Marsters! Janet! Poodle! Martha! Explosions! Slow motion strutting!
You can also see a longer, one minute trailer for Torchwood here (edit: link now works), which shows many more exciting things, including hot man on man action, and a blowfish. Yes, I said a blowfish. Go and see.
So, on to the big big news, which is that Torchwood series 2 officially starts on Wednesday the 16th January, at 9pm. My episode, which many people are already referring to as "episode 2" will be on the following week, 23rd January, also Wednesday at 9pm. The following night there's a pre-watershed repeat at 7pm, with some gore and swearing snipped out, and after that at 7.50pm is Torchwood Declassified, a behind the scenes show.
For those of you who live in the USA, TW starts on BBC America on the 26th January, at 9pm. My episode will be the following week, on Saturday 2nd Feb. The BBC America showings will be slightly edited though, to fit in adverts, so be aware that you're missing quite literally minutes of high quality entertainment. That's the excuse I'll be using if you don't like my episode, anyway. For UK viewers, I will blame sunspots.
If you don't usually watch the show, give it a chance, the first episode is kickass, and I'm incredibly proud of my one. Haven't seen the other eps yet, but from everything I've seen so far, it's going to rock hard. In fact, on a scale of 1 to Rock, Rock being the highest, I'd have to give it a solid Rock out of Rock. So check it out, or I'll come round your house and beat you up.*
*Of course I will not come round your house and beat you up if you don't watch the show, the BBC simply wouldn't allow it. They have special teams of people to do that.
