  • A brilliant conclusion to an awesome story..

    I was kinda worried before this episode, i was worried that there was just gonna be a big reset button and everyone would be happy and that would be the end. I'm relieved to see that was not the case. Victory is achieved but at a terrible cost, jack has to sacrifice his own grandson in order to achieve it. This is a welcome change to doctor who stories where the doctor normally come up with some magical solution that solves everything. I can understand why a story like this wouldn't be on doctor who though, it deals with some disturibng themes and is not suitable for children. I also have to state my disgust at the reason for the aliens wanting the children, these have to be some of the most evil aliens i've ever seen. I just hope this isn't the last we see of torchwood, the BBC would have to be braindead to cancel it after this.
