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.
