Those of you who listen to Radio Free Skaro know that the general consensus of the hosts in regards to their thoughts on Torchwood veer from indifference to disappointment to pleasantly surprised to, even, anticipointment. With few highlights (“Small Worlds”, “Something Borrowed”) in the Torchwood canon, compared to many lowlights (take a bow, “Day One”, “Cyberwoman”, “Meat” , “From Out of the Rain”…), our enthusiasm is somewhat tempered by the upcoming “Torchwood: Children of Earth”, airing in the UK from July 6-10 on BBC One, and in the US (BBC America) and Canada (SPACE) later in the month (hopefully).

You have our attention, Torchwood. Please don’t screw this up…
