Christmas: Fun. Love to all!

This post is really about this week's Torchwood: Much better. Noel "Mickey Smith" Clarke appears to be capable of writing engaging character interplay as well as actual investigative work (a new one for the Torchwood team) and something that's a lot more like sci fi drama than the soft fantasy soap opera porn of previous weeks. The swearing is natural and in context and the cast seem to flourish with a script that has some actual meat. Not to mention pacing and structure - none of it felt rushed or slow to me, things were set up in the first act for use later, there were themes and resonance and all fancy stuff like that.

And the team are being competent. And complex. There's signs of concern for the monsters as well as their fellow man. They did throw the Jellied Eels website together a tad quickly - complete with FMV of Owen with some lackeys - but I can believe they'd have various cover stories already set up for such an occasion.

Toshiko eats at her desk. Gwen uses police radio alphabet. Jack's arrogant for a reason.

And, crikey, Gwen's not dealing well with this spy stuff at all.

Why can't the whole season have been like this?
