Working Mother By Roderick on July 6, 2011 2 I like this photo from the upcoming Torchwood season: Thats all. Science Fiction
That’s exactly how I expected her day-to-day parenting style to turn out after discovering her impending motherhood while the 456 were “bargaining.”
-And the first comment I make to one of my most admired modern anarchist thinkers is about Torchwood…
I loved that scene! Gwen putting hearing protection on the baby before blasting the bad guys. I thought she and Reese should have kept their guns loaded though. They lost valuable time answering the door when they had to get their guns and load them first. Of course they are probably violating all manner of British nanny-state gun laws by just having guns in the first place, so good for them. Nice to see a woman portrayed as using a gun with conviction to protect her family and not throwing it away in terror as if it were a serpent.
I think the premiere of Torchwood: Miracle Day also carried one of the best insults I have heard:
Black CIA dude: What’s this bridge?
Blonde CIA girl: It connects Wales to England.
Black CIA dude: Wales is separate? It’s the British equivalent of New Jersey!
“The British equivalent of New Jersey.” Ouch.
