Quotes

Captain Jack Harkness: This time tomorrow he'll be back in 1918.
Ianto Jones: In his own time. Would you go back to yours if you could?
Captain Jack Harkness: Why? Would you miss me?
Ianto Jones: Yep.
Captain Jack Harkness: I left home a long time ago. Don't really know where I really belong. Maybe that doesn't matter anymore.
Ianto Jones: I... know you get lonely.
Captain Jack Harkness: Going home wouldn't fix that. Being here, I've seen things I never dreamt I'd see. Loved people I never would have known if I'd just stayed where I was. And I wouldn't change that for the world.

A solid third episode of the second season
6 February 2008 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

"To the Last Man" is an above average episode of "Torchwood". With shades of "Sapphire and Steel", this time-warping, "historical" tale is strong on emotion and atmosphere.

This is a Tosh-driven episode and it allows Naoko Mori to reveal more about her character. When a first World War soldier is thawed out from Torchwood's cryogenic freezer, emotions run high and the team fight to save the world yet again.

8 out of 10. I've heard "Torchwood" described as the "18-30 of Sc-Fi". This is somewhat unfair. Although the show has its weaknesses, it delivers an alternative slice of British science fiction that is curiously retro despite its modern touches.
