Long lost friend...

Oh, forgot to mention. Last Summer, I took my 7650 to Beltring as a backup phone as I had a bunch of work calls to make. I couldn't find it when I got home and just rather regretfully assumed I must have lost it at Beltring.

Imagine my surprise when I opened the CD bin in the car on Thursday night and suddenly saw the 7650 at the bottom of the bin! Now rather regretting having sold the 6600 on to David. Be nice to have the full set of Nokias I have used.

Well, strictly speaking, there'd still be a gap. Some bastard nicked my Orange 5.1 while in Holland. Sole consolation was that it was a single band phone and Holland didn't have any GSM1800 networks then so thp thief wouldn't have got much use out of it!

Hmm... 4 episodes in and I have to conclude that I am seriously unimpressed by Torchwood. The words "piss" and "poor" immediately spring to mind.

have to agree...
but the end of the last episode I didn't actaully care if anyone survived or not

Maybe if all the characters died, it might become watchable.

I'm not even liking Captain Jack much. He deserves a slap for assembling such an incompetant team.

Thought they would have run proper security checks too...
and when was the cyberman kit moved in

"I have a large trunk with stuff from London I need to put in storage for a lil while"
"Sure! Leave it in the back until you're sorted out."

As well as, you know, proper security checks for all that alien technology that seems to keep on getting borrowed from stores.

Having visions of a Blake's 7-type ending.

Gwen: "He sold us, Jack, even you"
...
Jack: "Is it true? Have you betrayed us? Have you betrayed me?"
Ianto: "Gwen doesn't understand"
...
Jack shoots Ianto, Cybermen burst in and shoot everyone else.
Jack stands astride Ianto's body, surrounded by Cybermen, raises his gun and smiles. Fade to black.

Ha! :)

That would be excellent. And quite plausible, given the utter lack of originality the show is displaying so far.

+1 for the oriental techy girl :D (like that's a surprise to anyone!)

I think the whole Captain Jack cannot die thing needs an urgent revision..

Captain Jack: "Go on, try to kill me, I can't die!"

{script rewrite}

Oriental Techy Girl: "Are you sure about that?"

Captain Jack: "Bring it on world!"

{Monty Python-esque foot descends, turning Captain Jack into Pavement Jam}

Oriental Techy Girl: "Umm, anyone for pizza?"

One thing I'll say for Torchwood is that it has made me want to revisit Cardiff. On the other hand, as a series that had potential, it's a bit of a let down so far.
