  1. Estelle

    The heart (in every sense of the word) of this story is Colin Colchester-Price.
    On his own, he is earnest and heart-breaking. And for the first part of this episode, I could feel how isolated he felt and was. For the second part, his anger felt so justified that I was right there with him. Kudos to Ramon Tikaram.
    Colin’s talks with Jack and with Tyler brought the best of these two characters, which is good as I had issues with them in the previous box-sets. Ramon Tikaram has great chemistry with both actors.

    Kudos to James Goss as well. There were so many great lines. Some funny but spot-on ones (“Can I go fight the monster again?”) and some weighty beautiful ones about death, grief, specific characters and Torchwood life.

    Just one minor thing: I know that this is an episode within a series and the fallout of the previous episode needed to be dealt with but I think it would have worked better without the Yvonne and Ro-Jedda plot-line. I felt it didn’t fit the tone and theme of an otherwise seamless episode.

    Continuing along the lines of season 5, I also love season 6. Five stars for all, just for being my sole coping mechanism currently. Also, in this audio in particular? Amazing Jack & Orr dynamics, great start to finally getting around the front Tyler puts up and starting to understand who he truly is as a person… painful stuff with Colin…
    Good audio.
    Please give us a season 7.

    I absolutely love this story, it really gives us some great dynamics. Jack and Orr, Colin and literally every character he interacts with, Tyler and God! I think returning to a new series with the characters already established helps a lot. For me this story is quintessential Torchwood, with a hearty storyline at the front and center. Definitely teared up a few times at moments.
