Blu-Ray Review: ‘Torchwood: The Complete Original UK Series,’ ‘Doctor Who: Series Six, Part 1’

Chicago – Are you loving the Starz import of the great “Torchwood” into the pretty-good “Torchwood: Miracle Day” and wondering where the heck Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) came from? Do you already know about one of the best sci-fi series of the last decade? Either way, the gorgeous HD box set for “Torchwood: The Complete Original UK Series” is spectacular and you might as well keep your BBC fix going with the strong “Doctor Who: Series Six, Part 1,” both released this week on Blu-ray.

Doctor Who: Series Six, Part 1”

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0

Let’s start with the new material. “Doctor Who” made something of a controversial leap stateside earlier this year with a two-part season premiere that not only played with American history but aired here on BBC America simultaneously with its U.K. premiere for the first time. “Doctor Who” was international.

Blu-Ray, TV Review: ‘Torchwood: Children of Earth’ is Riveting, Must-See Television

Chicago – Everyone with a TV should tune in tonight to one of the best hours of science fiction that the genre has ever seen, the opening night of the five-part “Torchwood: Children of Earth” mini-series. BBC America is broadcasting the Us debut of this five-night event and it is simply incredible, earning every bit of the glowing praise and buzz that has been building in anticipation of its debut.

TV Rating: 5.0/5.0 “Children of Earth” is essentially about the end of civilization. It is about a species - mankind - presented with a horrible situation and how bad decisions in the face of adversity simply add up over time. The sins of the past generation will be visited on the next one. It may sound deep for a sci-fi mini-series, but as any “Torchwood” fan will tell you, this is no ordinary sci-fi show.

An Early Peek At The Torchwood Series 2 DVD

Ah, Torchwood … the much anticipated and rather frustrating Doctor Who spinoff. Anticipated because it gave popular support character Captain John Harkness his own series and promised to ramp up the ‘adult’ content. Frustrating, particularly in Season One, because brilliant support characters often find the transition to lead characters a difficult one. Though it had some very strong moments Season One ended up being a mash of styles that never quite fit together the way people hoped and then ended in a ridiculously underwhelming finale.

Luckily, Season Two made significant improvements. They found something interesting to do with the callow Owen. James Marsters – that’d be Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer - got himself a brilliant recurring support bit. The tone evened out. The writers seemed to adopt the nobody-is-safe ethic that drives Joss Whedon’s shows. And, perhaps most importantly, they realized the show needed someone to fill the
