A finale of almost epic proportions
1 January 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

The thirteenth and final episode of "Torchwood" is excellent science fiction drama. Leading on from the events in "Captain Jack Harkness", "End of Days" shows the damage caused by the interference with the rift.

There are some great set-pieces in this episode and a few scenes of real tension. The outcome of this episode will keep the viewer on his or her edge-of-the-seat until the very end.

Another excellent performance here from John Barrowman but it's Eve Myles who's the real star of the show. Her warmth and humanity has been impressive in every episode and she has shown a great ability with both serious drama and comedy in this series.

Although "Torchwood" has had its share of less-than-excellent episodes, I have my fingers and toes crossed for another series. While its characters have not always been likable, they are realistic and that is where this series comes into its own.
