Episode 14: Torchwood: Miracle Day – “Escape to LA”

podcast 3 August 2011 2 Comments


Surf’s up for our heroic band of Torchwood-ers! (Geddit, they’re in LA?) In this week’s Timey Wimey TV, Liz and Rudy discuss the fourth episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day — the good (the gross conclusion), the bad (out-of-character or just flat-out stupid behavior) and the ugly (Gwen Cooper’s American accent).

Also, further plans for what will undoubtedly be an epic explosion of quality explicit fan fiction featuring Captain Jack, Rex Matheson C.I.A. and ourselves are also made. Because we keep things classy. Here’s some inspiration, if you need it.

We also get into the biggest news of the week when it comes to Torchwood: Some comments made by Starz president Chris Albrecht last week which implied that the show’s future might be an uncertain one. But the show’s ratings have been good and things are certainly cooking along — so where do you put Torchwood‘s odds of returning?

As always, we love reading your Tweets, emails and comments, so keep firing away! Also as always, thanks for listening.

    I’m glad you brought up the lack of clarity on how people heal, that’s been bugging me all along. Danes was administered a lethal poison but is now fine, suggesting that the body has a chance to continue it’s normal recovery processes beyond the point at which it would normally die.

    • That is a GREAT point about Danes and lethal injection. I think part of the confusion is that they’re actually being pretty good about not using fake TV healing times, so Rex is still bothered by his chest wound a week (I’m guessing?) after it happened, because human beings don’t heal fast. But this is definitely something that hopefully becomes clearer over the next few episodes.
