More Torchwood trailer preview thingies

Trailer-tastic Torchwood links and news items, step right up, get em while they're hot - well, lukewarm, cause everybody else found them ages ago, and I'm a slow-blog-updating jive turkey. Anyway, if you're still reading this, here they are:

Opening sequence of the first episode of season 2 - spoilery, and slightly edited down a bit

A behind the scenes clip featuring the cast being thoroughly silly

A (spoilery) large photo of more hot man on man action! Put them on your desktop! Phwoarrr! There's another video preview online for the bar scene with Jack and John (featured in the photo above), but I recommend that you don't watch it there - it's sooo much better in the episode, the build up is much more fun. And you're going to want to see it properly, in crystal clear quality. Yes.

Also, for our American chums, it seems that in addition to the edited-for-time episodes on BBC America, a channel called HDNet will be showing HD versions from Monday 11th February. As far as I know, these versions are unedited, uncut, un-anything, but I can't be sure. UK viewers can see the HD version on BBC HD at the same time as the normal ones. Naturally I will be shrieking any updates to you on this blog, as soon as I hear them. Or, more likely, several days after everyone else has heard them.

Hoping to have more news soon, on these and other things, including some FAQ's. Less than a week to go until season 2 starts, then 2 weeks until my episode, so get your special telly-watching pants cleaned and ready, no excuses. You don't have special pants to watch telly in?? Get some!

Loads of good telly on next week. Along with Torchwood and Primevil, City of Vice looks promising too: cops with wigs! Hurrah!

Consider my TV pants to be on and fully notched up.

Its more of a tv nappy, in case I get too excited and wee.

Oh you do so spoil us with your lovely linky treats!

Dear Auntie James,

I keep getting this sudden and inexplicable urge to shout 'BLOWFISH!' at odd intervals.
Can you help?

*gets the TV-watching pants, grabs some Kettle Chips, keeps the mobile phone at hand, and...*

Oh. There's still six days to go.

Seriously. The fandom is going into meltdown. THE SYSTEM CANNAE TAKE IT, MORAN!

(...actually, it can. The synopses for episodes 1-5 have just been released and everyone is getting even more melty over episode 5. Not long to go!)

Primeval? Good telly? *cough, cough* I'm glad the Walking With Dinosaurs team are so gamefully employed by ITV these days, but can we get original stories, decent characters and a backstory that makes sense in this new series, please?

I've just noticed, if you rearrange all the letters in TORCHWOOD, you get DOCTOR HOW (which is almost like Doctor Who).

What are the chances of that eh?

Hmmm...Are those blocked in the US? I can never see the YouTube links. I know the BBC links are. It's not fair I say--it's just not fair!

but on the bbc america torchwood site there are more different pictures and an different video of captain john getting into a tight corner etc.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but the BBC America Torchwood site has a nice "Which Torchwood member are you?" game.

You are Toshiko

It's tough being a geek. People walked all over you in high school, and you're finding that adult life, sadly, isn't so different. But without you, our computers would crash, we couldn't program our DVD players, and our plasma screens would be on the fritz. Clearly, you're a necessary part of the operation, even if everyone else doesn't always realize it...


Could be worse, I suppose...

It's silly fun. Don't see there's anything wrong with that.
