TARDISblend 31: ‘Doctor Who’ At Comic-Con and Catching Up With ‘Torchwood’
Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011 at 1:46 pm
After a short break, the TARDISblend is back, as we take a look at the news for Doctor Who and Torchwood that came out of San Diego Comic-Con, and look at the most recent episodes of Torchwood: Miracle Day.
We cover the major news and information revealed to fans at San Diego Comic-Con 2011. From details about upcoming Torchwood episodes, to the big news revelations for Doctor Who, we discuss it all! Additionally we take a look at Matt Smith‘s appearance on the Craig Ferguson Show; and examine what may happen if Toby Jones returned as the Dream Lord.
As Miracle Day continues, the CIA team have captured the remaining members of Torchwood, Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles). However, the CIA have turned against their own, attempting to wipe out any remnant of Torchwood, and Rex Matheson (Mekhi Pfifer) and Esther Drummond (Alexa Havins) find themselves uniting with the ones they have captured.
On the run, the small band of heroes identify themselves as members of a new Torchwood, whether they like it or not. Investigating the cause and the reason behind Miracle Day finds more questions for them than answers, and along their way they become tied up with big pharmaceutical companies, assassins from the mysterious Triangle Group, and the despicable criminal Oswald Danes (Bill Pullman) as he moves from being hated child molester to a beloved messianic icon to the masses.
And the further Torchwood look into Miracle Day, the more they find that it may have much more to do with Captain Jack Harkness than they previously believed…
During TARDISblend 31, we review the events of Rendition, Dead of Night, and Escape to L.A. We look at how both kick-ass and beautiful Eve Myles is in the new series, strongly maintaining her Welsh heritage at the same time.
Bill Pullman continues to steal the show as Oswald Danes, in an ongoing amazing performance. Meanwhile, we also drill down into some of our criticisms of the new show, from writing elements, to distractions of realism, to some of the new characters. All this and more on the latest TARDISblend!
Presented by Greg Davies (cGt2099 from The Social Blend Podcast) and Tom Cheredar (Tched from The Drill Down Podcast) TARDISblend is a mini podcast that takes a look at the ongoing adventures of Doctor Who – as Matt Smith makes his journey as the Eleventh Doctor!
