During the second takeover of the children, a blond boy in a red school uniform (farthest to the right) briefly glances at the camera when all the other children's eyes are fixed off in the distance. When he notices that he's on camera his eyes quickly dart back to fixed and blank. See more »

Quotes

Rupesh Patanjali: The thing is we've all seen it now, the past few years - alien life. Even though half the world's still denying it. For me...
[sighs]
Rupesh Patanjali: . Okay... it's the suicides. The past few years suicide rates have doubled, and that's ever since the first alien. My first case, my first death was a suicide. Do you know why she did it? Because she'd written all these letters, she'd been a Christian all her life, and then alien life appears. She wrote this bit, she said - "It's like science has won."

Shades of "Quatermass" in this modern classic
10 July 2009 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Having grown up with Nigel Kneale's truly haunting "Quatermass" with Sir John Mills, this latest "Torchwood" series brought back many childhood memories as there are shades of the final '70s series in this production. With a most mysterious alien force at work and the earth in true peril, season three of the series has a true emotional resonance with the viewer.

This is a new, revised "Torchwood", aimed at a more mainstream audience but now equipped with a bigger budget and a prime time slot on BBC1. As a result, the series pulls no punches and delivers a more satisfactory experience than many of the recent "Doctor Who" tales.

The pace of this season is perfect and the production team acknowledge the age old adage that what you don't see is far more frightening than what is revealed. With excellent production values, "Children of Earth" is a true treat for dedicated "Torchwood" fans and the more casual viewer who is new to the adventures of Captain Jack and company.
