Torchwood pick up the pieces and move on. After all, there’s a whole new set of alien threats to deal with. But when a God comes to Cardiff, the world goes to Hell…
Flight 405 went missing over 60 years ago, but tonight the plane finally lands. Norton Folgate’s a Torchwood agent from the 1950 and he swears Flight 405 contains the secret to the end of the world, but can Torchwood trust him?
This first episode of the new box-set starts…not exactly in media res…but without touching on all the big plot points of the previous episode and it makes it a bit confusing to me.
What adds to my confusion is that I’m not sure I understand what happened in details. I got the gist of it but, yeah, I’m a bit confused on a few details.
I think the plot is best summed up by a line in the audio: “[Yvonne and Norton] deserve each other. I just feel sorry for whoever they bring along with them.”
This poor soul is Andy Davidson, who is as always a delight with his nerdy excitement and usual resilience.
Still, despite some nice Andy touches here and there, I would have loved more character moments, which is probably why I absolutely adore the conversation with Mr Colchester and Jack. It is very human in all of its Torchwood-related weirdness. But this conversation is very much an aside at the beginning of the main plot.
Still, the last few minutes make up for the lack of urgency I felt at what were supposed to be high stakes by setting very interesting pieces for the rest of the box-set.
Norton, Andy and Yvonne 🥺🥺🥺 I love this trio and want more from them. The ending is definitely interesting in setting up the second half of this series.
