Last night I couldn't sleep - very unusual for me - so I decided to turn on the television. Quite often just the low sound of the telly lulls me under. However, I soon became engrossed in the program Torchwood on BBC America. I'm not typically a fan of science fiction in general, but Torchwood caught my fancy anyway.
Wikipedia describes the series as follows:
Torchwood follows the exploits of a small team of alien-hunters, who make up the Cardiff, Wales branch of the fictional Torchwood Institute, which deals mainly with incidents involving extraterrestrials. Its central character is Captain Jack Harkness, an immortal former con-man from the distant future. He and other characters are specialists for the Torchwood team, often tracking down aliens and defending the planet from alien and nefarious human threats.
I found Torchwood engaging, keeping my interest long past the first few minutes of dialogue (which is always a good sign). I liked it well enough to tune-in next week for more.
I wish the story would continue with Henry VIII's children (Edward, Mary and Elizabeth), but I haven't heard news of such a thing happening yet.
