    The Weavils have been on Earth for quite some time... Weavil Family Genealogy Twisted Evil Over 200 in the 1930 US Census alone!

    They have even formed a band... The Weavils

    And a UK Label! BO WEAVIL RECORDINGS (UK)

    Weavils date back to at least 1740 and one entered the US in 1752!


    Daleks don't accept apologies! YOU WILL BE EXTERMINATED!

    Hmm... the Face of Bo joined up with a Weavil to form their own record label, huh? Perhaps that is the big secret he is waiting to tell the Doctor?

    [Quote  by:  mad4plaid] Perhaps (HUGE stretch here) because Torchwood 3 (T3 for short) is located on the rift, it is given more leaway? Or perhaps this is a statement similar to the one from Blon/Margaret in Boomtown: the whole southwest coast could fall into the ocean and no one would notice (paraphrasing here). In other words: its Cardiff, no one in London is going to care. So perhaps its RTDs dig at the non-Welsh opinion of his homeland?


    I'm with Mad on this one. My first impression was that Torchwood Cardiff is more or less left to its own methods and style because... hey, it's Cardiff, not London, New York or some large center that considers itself important. It's Cardiff.

    That'd be like putting a Torchwood in St. John's, Newfoundland. It would not likely become so much a para-military organization.

    It also reminded me greatly of "The Lone Gunman", a group of very smart people investigating the paranormal using whatever means they desired, as long as they get results.

    And the way I see it, this rift hasn't really been much of a problem until now. Enough of one to locate a branch of Torchwood there, but not major enough to get the attention of the main Torchwood branch in London.

    I'm guessing that may change as the rift begins to show itself as a serious problem.

    Sean.

    But I do have issues:


    - I've watched the ep twice now and I still cannot figure out how did Gwen know to look up "Captain Jack Harkness." Did one of the cops at the homicide site mention his name when they mentioned "Torchwood?" Did she hear it when she was on the roof?



    Corpse "My name is John who are you?"

    CJ "Captain Jack Harkness"

    About 5 minutes in when they are interviewing the corpse


    got it! (which of course leaves me to wonder - again - how did Gwen hear the conversations from so high up? but that is not something I need answered, just something that always occurs to me as I watch shows that use this type of scene set up)

    supremacy is relative

    I was thinking the same exact thing during that scene and any time else the same device is used in television... Either all these television characters have super sonic hearing or a bionic ear... I don't know how they can hear from such distances. Wasn't it also raining too here (perhaps it just finished raining, I don't recall)?

    For whatever reason (call it Cool "Dramatic cool") when the glove was used, the rain stoped, they even used a music sting to emphisize the point. "Hey look this glove is something not of this earth!" then when the time was up the rain started back up again.

    Didn't you see the warning sign? "Objects in the alleyway are closer than they appear".

    On a second viewing of "Everything Changes" caught the exact description of Torchwood 2

    Arrow "Torchwood two is an office in Glasgow, very strange man."

    I don't rember if his birthplace was ever specifically named but could it possibly be our favorite Stewart clan member from old. Even if it is never mentioned again ( Rolling Eyes fat chance) it is interesting speculation. The implacation that Torchwood 2 is one man, who else could it be?

    You'll notice that the first thing that happens once the glove begins working is the rain stops.

    In an echoy alley, it is very likely she heard every word of their conversation. Everything indicates she did. Even Jack looks up and asks her casually what she thinks, becuase he knows she heard every word.

    It's a situation in which she probably could even hear their whispers.

    Now that's something that slid by so easily I didn't catch it.

    Wow. What's the implication? That a certain Mr. McCrimmon might have somehow slipped forward in time or otherwise had his life extended, and is now in charge of the Glasgow office of Torchwood?

    Sean.

    It could be a decendent of his - or a decendent of one of the staff from the original Torchwood house.

    Very intresting, well though Mr. McCrimmon as a possiblity would certinaly be intresting, I was in fact talking about a certain Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart Cool who might be persuaded to come out of retirement to be a consultant for Torchwood. If you recall in The Terror of the Zygons the Brig. appears in a regimental kilt Eek! (much to the amusement of the Doctor and Sara Jane and Harry) He explains that he is a member for the clan Stewart. He certanily has more experience than almost anyone on the planet. Any other speculation as to who the "Very Strange Man" in Glasgo is? I welcome it, I wouldn't have thought of Jamie (too centered on Troughton). Any other strange men in Glasgo Wink ?

    why haven't Ken or James weighed in on these two Torchwood episodes? Louis, do you know if they've seen them?
