This is the DVD commentary for Underground, requested by [personal profile] ffutures. There's no point in denying it; I'd looked forward very much to Torchwood: Children of Earth and for about three and a half days it lived up to its promise. Then it abruptly fell off a cliff. It wasn't, for me, the death of Ianto (though that was a stupid death if ever I saw one) but by the smug nihilism of RTD's vision at that stage. The mawkish Gwen straight-to-camera piece about how Earth didn't deserve the Doctor, Frobisher's murder/suicide, and the absence of any form of loyal opposition was just so typical of RTD's approach, including the female politician who unblushingly proposes class-based genocide and is rewarded with the keys to Number 10. Suffice it to say, any fic which came out of that experience would be fix-it fic of some sort or other. But even for fix-it fic you've got to have some gleam of hope to cling onto. The only gleam of hope in COE seemed to me to come from Lois Habiba, who had done the best she could to retain her integrity in difficult circumstances, and would surely have a price on her head after that. She needed a place to hide and she needed a team she could be part of and who would back her.

And by the time one's got two temps, both of them highly skilled, one starts thinking of a typing bureau...

I recently read Gerry Conway's original "The Amazing Spider-Man" run (the one that killed off Gwen Stacy and had the original Clone Story-Arc) and... am I the only one that sees this?


Does this count as Context is for the weak? )

Time is not my friend at the moment, so a proper post on the amazing Class finale has not yet been written. However, I came across this brilliant post that you should all read, as it delves into all the ways the show is smart and so much more than what it at first appears to be:

THE TRUTH SNAKE: A Song for “The Lost”

MANY MANY SPOILERS FOR EVERYTHING.
