Noel Clarke great writing!
26 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode, it was the best one for a couple of weeks. I notice it was written by Noel Clarke a.k.a. Mickey Smith from Doctor Who, and what a great job he did! This was one of the better episodes of the series, I hope Noel Clarke will be writing again for series two. Great work as always from the regular cast, it was nice to see more of Tosh and Ianto too, they often seem underused, and are two good actors. Great work also from guest actor Alex Hassell as Mark, he played the dark undercurrents particularly well. In my household we have really enjoyed Torchwood and look forward to series two. I hope we have more character back stories and history in the next series, as it can be hard to warm to characters without it, and even harder for the actors when all they have is action sequences and the events of that weeks story. People cared more about Ianto for example after Cybergirl.
