Russell T. Davies is a hack!
I'll make this brief. And, yes, there are spoilers. The new mini series of Torchwood has decided to kill off Ianto, one of the main characters of the series. Why? See the title for a quick explanation.
Lately, I have been reading a lot about Mr. Davies in the news and there are many interviews with him. He comes across as a pompous ass. Look, sir, you're just writing television. It's not like you have invented the wheel. And, if you're such a good writer then why does Stephen Moffat win all the awards for the episodes of Doctor Who that he has written. Thank God that he will be taking over the further adventures of Doctor Who. That way Davies can stop clubbing us over the head with his personal life.
Yes, we get it. You're gay and don't believe in God. We got that pretty much right away, but there you are with your Gay Atheist club hammering away at us week after week.
Having been a big fan of the show in it's previous incarnation, Doctor Who not Torchwood, I have to say that I prefer that one. It was about the adventure not the preachy. It made a statement about the human condition by including all humans, not just who Davies wants us to think about.
Moffat does a good job of getting that idea across. Davies does not.
And now he has ruined Torchwood. Good for you Jackass.
And to all the fans of the show who are more upset about this than I am, Davies could care less. This is his little pet project and I'm pretty sure his agenda from the start. He only did Doctor Who so he could get Torchwood made. It's been planned for a while now and when he writes himself into a dramatic corner he goes for the easy out. Kill a major character. Ohhhhh! Never saw that one coming ya twit.
I, for one, will not be bothering with the finale of the mini series of Torchwood. Don't need to waste my time.
That's it for me. I'm out.
