Time to Start Thinking Torchwood
By the time you read this, the Doctor Who mid-season finale, aka A Good Man Goes To War, will have either already hit the airwaves or be so close to a broadcast that you can barely make room in your head for anything else. Whether you’re still in shock about what this writer from the past has heard is a massive cliffhanger, or you’re with this writer in the same past anticipating said cliffhanger, the word Torchwood is probably in the very back of your mind at the moment.
Go right ahead and keep thinking about the Doctor’s next/latest adventure for now, but tomorrow’s a new day, and tomorrow’s a great day to start full-on salivating about Torchwood: Miracle Day.
SFX is giving us a head start on tomorrow with its latest issue, #210, dubbed a “World Exclusive” look at the next season of the adventures of Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper, featuring an interview with showrunner Russell T. Davies and stars John Barrowman and Eve Myles. Not to mention a smashing image of Barrowman as Jack brandishing a massive, Jack-like, unDoctorly assault weapon (otherwise known as a gun).
Or, if you’re still living in Today Mode, Doctor Who also gets a mention in the mag, appearing in this month’s “SpoilerZone” section. Of course, it goes without saying that you probably shouldn’t read that section if you don’t want any part of this series ruined for you. Besides, Doctor Who won’t be back until sometime well after tomorrow, so rather than entering the usual series of withdrawals we Whovians tend to lapse into without our favorite show, grab this issue from any respectable news stand, read the Torchwood bits, and get your mind off things.
After all, you can’t spell Torchwood: Miracle Day without using all the letters in “Tomorrow.”
