This is the complete boxset of the second of the second series of the BBC's Torchwood @ a bargain price of £24.87 delivered @ DVD.CO.UK. This is the cheapest price on the market.
In many ways a far more experimental and variable series than the show it spun out of, Torchwood demonstrates many of the qualities of Doctor Who, but has certainly developed a tone all of its own.
Season two finds the Torchwood team still under the pavements of Cardiff, and still led by John Barrowmans Captain Jack Harkness. But theres a lot going on this second series, with a variety of guest stars--including Alan Dale (yup, Jim Robinson from Neighbours), James Marsters (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Richard Briers--along with the arrival of Freema Agyemans Martha Jones. There are also a variety of intriguing threats that the Torchwood team face, and while the tempo is often uneven, at worst its always interesting.
Whats more, Torchwood isnt afraid of pulling its punches. Unpredictable at times, right through to the explosive final episode, this second season is an improvement on the shows already-impressive debut. And while it sometimes makes familiar mistakes as it tries to play to a more mature audience, it nonetheless feels riskier than before, and better for it. Furthermore, where they take it now for season three is a fascinating proposition: fortunately, theres plenty of rewatch value in the shows second series to cover the wait to find out. --Jon Foster
