    I've already asked her to knit me one. Smile She's going to make me start knitting my own stuff at some pointwith all my who requests, but those Adipose are too cute not to have a little knit buddy.

    [Quote  by:  Shayne_A] Well I'd always assumed that there were two Jacks at that time although the Jack that was running TORCHWOOD at that time may have made a point of being elsewhere around the time Boomtown takes place so as to not endanger the timeline.

    I was quite aware that season 2 delves into Jack's backstory a bit and establishes that Jack had been involved with TORCHWOOD for quite some time ( so far I've only watched the first 5 episodes of season 2 ), what I was curious about was if he just used the identity of Captain Jack Harkness or if he used different identities over the years to try and hide the fact he is basically immortal or if the powers that be within TORCHWOOD knew who and what he was.

    I guess there were also two Jacks during World War II including the events of The Empty Child / The Doctor Dances.


    I never really thought about the Jack duplication much before, but you're right he would have been around during the EC/DD story, too. I don't remember much about the Torchwood series 1 story where they flash back to Jack around WW1. Was he going by Jack Harkness in that ep?

    I also apologize for derailing this Partners in Crime thread into Torchwood territory. To slowly work it back into Doctor Who and other discussions in this thread, is there any reason why Jack couldn't have met up with the 3rd Doctor when he was stranded on Earth and working with UNIT? I know Jack said something like he waited around for a version of the Doctor that coincided with him, but why would that have been necessary? I mean, the Doctor is obviously familiar with the wibbly, wobbly, timey, wimey stuff. Eek!

    I'm going "Full Circle" and putting my avatar back to what it was when I first joined. :)

    Well the first incarnation of The Doctor Jack met was the 9th but as far as he knew it was the first and I don't recall the Doctor telling him otherwise so it may have never occurred to him that Doctor John Smith was in fact The Doctor - that's assuming he has any access to UNIT information and personel details.

    Quickly posting my throughts here... since I was quite late in watching this story due to my attending a convention in Brisbane.

    I liked the story quite a bit, it wasn't fantastic but it wasn't horrible either.
    The whole thing was enjoyable for me, especially the scenes of dialogue between The Doctor and Donna, especially the scene at the end in the alley way with the bags, inside the computer cardboard, and the mime stuff was just gold.
    I find that's always RTD's stength is character moments, sometimes his stories as a whole can suffer sometimes, but the character moments are always great.
    Only niggle I had was the Doctor and Donna just missing eachother scene which I throught was slightly overdone.

    I liked the Adipose, wasn't quite sure about how cute they were, but I liked them all the same. (enough to want a plushie one if they come out)

    Donna was great, I've always told people she would be, and Bernard Cribbins was fantastic.
    I didn't find the waving scene at the end as cheesy as some have, I in fact loved it.

    I did have an out loud 'oh my god it's Rose' moment, and knew it was her even before she turned her head around.
    Quite interesting she got put in so early on, it'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

    And I think that's all I can think of, a steady 4/5 for me.

    bye bye david :(

    3.5/5 for me. I agree that the characterisation was superb. Donna Noble could be the best thing that has happned to Doctor Who since Rose Tyler (if handled sensitively. The story itself was a little weak (sorry, I have found that to be the case with most of RTD's first episodes). But often they have been the vehicles to set the groundwork for the rest of the series and we know how our patience has been rewarded so far in each series (even last year's finale was much, much better the second time I watched it - does anybody else find that about RTD's episodes?).

    Hardly a need to apologize. The question of where, when and how many Jacks there are is a fascinating one. I've started a new thread with the bulk of this discussion at the top. Just click through to go to a Fistful of Jacks.

    Ok. To make up for my part in hijacking this thread, here's something that cracked me up tonight. I happened to watch the X-Files episode 2SHY just now...

    MULDER: In the results of your chemical analysis did you find anything missing?

    SCULLY: (looks at him strangely) Missing?

    MULDER: Yeah.

    SCULLY: I don’t think so. (looks at chart) All the body tissues were accounted for …. except there were extremely low almost trace amounts of adipose.

    MULDER: Fatty tissue. That could explain the weight discrepancy.

    SCULLY: What weight discrepancy?

    MULDER: The ME recorded Lauren’s weight at 122 but her driver’s license had her at 165.


    ...and later...

    SCULLY: From a dry skin sample you’re concluding what? That he’s some kind of fat-sucking vampire?

    MULDER: I don’t know how else to explain MacKalvey’s missing adipose. And I bet if you checked the Aberdeen victims you’d find exactly the same thing. This killer secretes a digestive substance which renders the victims fat…

    SCULLY: ....which he ingests before the rest of the body dissolves entirely.

    I would certainly like to watch the episode a second, even third time(uninterrupted), but I've been unable to have the time to devote this week.

    From what I saw, it was fun to see the Doctor and Donna team up again. At times, it was a bit too much a la Smith and Jones dialog, and Catherine Tate was still a bit annoying. She did tame down the character enough to shrug off the embellishments.

    I loved the "42" glass shouting scene and the new gadgets. David running around the streets.....I'm still a fangirl so do the math. (New look + New Gadgets + "To Mate" = drooooool)

    I'll give this one a 3/5. I liked it much!

    I also picked that up as a parallel to the escape pod sequence in 42.

    I watched this again this evening, and 3 things struck me (even more so than after the 1st watch and my initial post)....

    Catherine Tate was great. Opinions abound and everyone is entitled to their own, but personally speaking I've not got a lot of time for the she's rubbish views (which do seem to have died off a bit in fairness). The seemingly fullscale horror with which her companionship announcement was greeted was (to me at least) quite unjust. These boards went mental and nearly everyone was on her case.

    Sarah Lancashire was really great too. I don't do (and can truthfully say I've never done) Corrie, but such was her impact on the national psyche as a skitzy, yellow and pink polka dotted pin up, it was difficult to avoid her - and until Saturday & (more so) tonight, I don't think I've appreciated what a good actress she is. Her lines in this episode were delivered so well, with the perfect blend of classy (se*xy) authority and complete bloody menace. She was excellent.

    Lastly; I thought the Adipose escaping CGI was rubbish. Simple as that really.

    Aww! but they were so cuuute! Only, they could have had some more snaggle-tooth variation I thought, rather than just all have their snaggle-tooth in the same spot.
