I’m so in love with this. i can’t even. ah. my favorite feeling in the world is putting your head beneath the water and entering an entirely different place, so peaceful, so quiet. what i miss more than anything when i’m living away from the ocean is being able to duck under and leave all my worries on the surface.
I want to do a Torchwood rewatch of all 4 seasons on the tv forum at http://previously.tv/
I’m a new viewer to the show and I want to talk about it :( It would be cool if you like the show to join the forum even if you don’t want to do a rewatch. I want to discuss the show. Thanks :)
If you are seeing this, could you reblog it so more people see it-Thanks!

On another note, I just had a heartbreaking realization that it’s very likely Whovians and Torchwoodites will likely never see the Legendary Captain Jack Harkness again beyond re-runs and dusting off the good ol’ DVD sets.
I mean, it’s been three years since Miracle Day and I wouldn’t place any bets on Moffat.
Jack Harkness will always live on in my heart. ;_;
Sad because Moffet helped create Jack in two of the best Season 1 episodes of the new Doctor Who. And Doctor Who has a life time of Jack Harkness to visit. They can set him 100s of years into the future. Or even find him 100s of years into the future and bring him back to current time Cardiff. Such a sad thought to never see more Jack :(
Is it odd that I am actually heartbroken about how Captain Jack turned out to be an absolute monster in season three of TORCHWOOD?
It’s not odd. You grow to care about fictional characters as you get drawn into their lives and world. That’s the point. Though I don’t agree that Jack was shown to be an absolute monster in season 3.
Jack isn’t as human as we would be but he has lived a long time and seen a lot. He made himself cold and a bit selfish at times to cope after losing his family so long ago. And even now after he has grown with the help of The Doctor&Rose, people age and die and Jack lives on. Death and losing people have been a part of Jack’s life since his long ago childhood. No matter how sad, a few children back in the 60’s and 1 child now are small potatoes in the large scheme of millions and billions.
There are times Jack does have more human moments. They are usually about the small group he has connected to for a spell. Jack sees life via those connections because he has seen a lot and death isn’t as impactful for himself outside of the loss of these connection.
As for as season 3, at first current Jack was less wiling to make the a few children or millions decision. He was hanging around humans with human connections so it was harder to discount any given life to save the collective. Than Ianto died because Jack protested and Jack got a taste of why hard decisions are made. So sacrificing his blood kin was sad but not really hard. Losing Ianto was what was hard.
I think it would have been more scary and beautiful for the show to have had Jack ask his daughter Alice to make the decision. Jack didn’t have much of a relationship with Alice or his grandson. It’s hard for me to get past, ‘Did Jack have the right to make that decision as a family member?’ I think Alice probably wouldn’t be able to think past her son’s life ( I doubt I could make that decision since my son is my everything). Jack would have had to make the decision as the de facto human leader and the scene’s impact would have been more powerful imo. That’s what I would have done.
Hi! So you're super nice and basically awesome, and you seem like as good a person as any to ask this from, so I thought I'd ask - I really want to get into Mumford and Suns, so I was wondering if you have any recommendations as to where to begin (their best songs in your opinion, videos to watch, etc.) Thanks! *scurries away from awkwardness and shyness*
OH MY FRIEND YOU HAVE MADE A WISE DECISION!
This may be hard, because literally every song they’ve written is amazing. But here are the basics for becoming a Mumford and Sons fan.
This may be a long post so BUCKLE YOUR SEAT BELTS!
Mumford & Sons is an English folk-rock band started in 2007.
They currently have two albums out.
Sigh No More (2009)
and Babel (2012)
The band consists of the Mumford (Marcus Mumford, Lead Singer):
And the Sons! (Keyboardist Ben Lovett, Banjo player Winston Marshall, and Bassist Ted Dwaine):
They all have weird facial hair and look kind of homeless, but they’re freaking cuties.
Where to start:
There are five songs that I would start out listening to.
Those are just some of my favorites and their most popular, so that would be a good place to begin. :)
Where to continue:
LISTEN TO EVERYTHING ON SIGH NO MORE AND BABEL BECAUSE IT’S ALL GOLDEN. I can probably sing both albums all the way through perfectly. True story.
Marcus Mumford happens to be married to the actress Carey Mulligan, who plays Sally Sparrow in Doctor Who and Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby. They’re basically my OTP.
The extra fan package:
If you find that the two albums are not enough, not to worry! They have several random singles they’ve never officially released.
Here’s a list of the one’s I’ve found. (I know I’m missing some.)
(P.S. That was probably overload for just an intro to Mumford and Sons. So sorry about that. I get carried away.)
(P.P.S. Know that it’s literally ALWAYS okay to talk to me. I love talking to you! Don’t feel shy and awkward! ILY!)
I had to reblog this :) I miss My boys sooooo much.
Another cover I’m absolutely obsessed with. Love her voice. <333
Well he could have adapted to where or the life style of how he was living. He might of lived in a very polluted city and his head enlarged. And then either adapted with no need or room for a body other what he has besides the face. Or some monks cut off his head and did some kind of weird magic like science. Doctor who had a few episodes that give clues of how Jack could become the face of Boe.
It is a sad life though. Never dying is a sad sad fate when everyone you love dies or leaves or you leave them for there own good. And perhaps after the Doctor and Martha left, the face of Boe once again comes back to life?
he is literally a male character representing the feminist struggle of women characters being there for the male protagonist. The entire series his only purpose was I be jacks boyfriend, and to die to stir up some emotion in jack and basically he’s not even a real character he’s just a jack plot line.
Yeah basically but at least he’s adorable and had cute chemistry with Jack. All the Torchwood characters are kind of cartoonish in their place in the show. The show is like Scooby doo or some other cartoon mystery show. They reset a whole lot and rarely change to shape their character growth from any given arc. I still love the show though ;)
