Review: Torchwood 1×9 – Random Shoes

Torchwood: Random Shoes

Yet another Torchwood that wasn’t that bad. Far fewer plot holes than last week, characterisation was pretty good (bar Jack’s, of course) but a bit more boring and derivative, notably of Love and Monsters.

Did y’all like it? Do you think they’ve finally ironed out the bulk of the problems and are slowly working up to a decent TV series? Or it it fatally flawed still?
