Okay, first of all, f*ck my sideways! Last week's episode had me hiding behind the sofa, this one had me on the edge of the sofa with my eyes as wide as saucers!

I don't care what [livejournal.com profile] abby_i says about continuity (mainly Jack running to meet the TARDIS as opposed to being yanked out as in Torchwood) [of course, there's the possibility that that was another incident - we are working with time travellers here!], this was an awesome episode! Someone also said that it was predictable, but it certainly wasn't for me!

The interaction between Ten and Jack was awesome! I'd completely forgotten that we hadn't actually seen them on screen together before. I think I prefer the interaction between the two as opposed to between Nine and Jack - Ten's just cheekier and it seems to work. The bit where Ten reassures Jack that Rose isn't dead is so great! And of course Jack flirting with everything that moves! It's funny how Jack is completely different when he's with the Doctor as opposed to being the one in charge at Torchwood. He obviously likes not having the responsibility of being the only person who knows what's going on!

As for the Master, well! Having not seen many of the old episodes of Doctor Who, I didn't know about the Master beforehand, but I tell you, there's nothing scarier to me than a Timelord who's evil. The Master freaked me out: Derek Jacobi was fantastic, as was David Tennant's reaction when he realised what was going on.

I was freaking when he took the TARDIS! How could he do that?!

Anyway, I'm seriously looking forward to the next episode. For starters, more Jack (how great was it that John Barrowman was in the opening credits?!). And more Master. *g*

yup yup yup

I didn't really like barrowman in the previous series but he's been good on Any Dream will Do.. so surprising i quite liked Jack in this one.

Yes! how could he just take the tardis! Does it not know its owner! how can they leave the doctor there! Bloody master!

I was hiding behind the couch for some of it and dancing in the middle of the floor for the rest! Especially when the doctor told jack that rose wasn't dead, just trapped

The Rose references were brill (although I did feel sorry for Martha). It's a shame that her character's not really been fleshed out - she seems to just be hanging around in the background half the time.

That's what I thought about the TARDIS! I was like: 'Don't take her! You can't take her! Nooooooooo!' *wail* (Because obviously the TARDIS is a woman.)

And I loved Jack in the first series, I just wasn't quite so sure about him in Torchwood, mainly because he was such a different character (probably due to the responsibility, as I said above).

*sigh* Bring on next Saturday!

OMG just finished watching it, so damn great!!!!! :D And I was SO happy to see John Barrowman's name in the opening credits plus I really did love how he's so different around the doctor (and OMG finding out he actually LIVED through a century waiting to find the doctor O.o) and LOL he did more flirting in one ep than in the whole season of Torchwood.

I know! It's funny how he can flirt by just opening his mouth! And the Doctor telling him off all the time! *g*

It does make it seem as though Captain Jack's left behind Torchwood because he's found the Doctor. I wonder how they're going to get Captain Jack back to Torchwood (which I don't want him to be! Jack should be the Doctor's companion!).

Sorry!! I've always preferred Ten to Nine, and I prefer Ten/Jack to Nine/Jack. I'm going to stand by that! *g*

My brain it hurts. Heh.

It's fair enough, I know a lot of people prefer Ten. I just love the (obvious) angst filled Nine and his co-dependant issues with Rose.

One more season, that's all I wanted. *sob*

But yay, angsty Jack!

I think I prefer Ten because he's more like Tom Baker's Doctor, who was the first one that I saw, and I loved. You know, kind of manic, with a twinkle in his eye and a big grin. *g*

Nine was good, though. They're just completely different Doctors.

Jack was brilliant!
