On returning Jack's wrist-strap, Gwen says she's replaced the actual strap. However, in the close-up, the leather is definitely well-used and worn, with indentations from the control buttons. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Gwen Cooper: There's one thing I always meant to ask Jack. Back in the old days. I wanted to know about that Doctor of his. The man who appears out of nowhere and saves the world. Except sometimes he doesn't. All those times in history when there was no sign of him, I wanted to know why not. But I don't need to ask any more. I know the answer now. Sometimes the Doctor must look at this planet and turn away in shame. I'm recording this in case anyone ever finds it, so you can see... you can see ...

Wow is this the End of Torchwood...
15 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Torchwood Mini series, was very interesting and exciting. Well worth the time of watching. It does wrap the series so much, I feel the series as we know it is over for good. I guess Mr Burrowman, did not wish to continue with working on Torchwood. I don't want to give anything away, it was so good. If you are a Torchwoood fan you will love it and hate it. LOL. This is great Sci Fi for Television and the SyFy (Sci Fi) channel should take note of Good Science Fiction for once. Undoubtablely the best Sci Fi out there, Torchwood, never fails to entertain and uses great imagination and creativity. I give good props to the writers and the whole look of the series, is awesome. Children of the World, is a great work and will stand the test of time. I do give it a 10. Enjoy....
