Re: How do you feel about Torchwood Miracle Day

I think both were too long. Miracle day should have been five or four episodes, and CoE should have been three.

Besides, CoE didn't really have that warm feel the first two did. In 1 & 2, we had "the gang". Jack, Gwen, Owen, Tosh, and Yanto. In CoE, I didn't feel there were enough cast members to really make it work.

At least in Miracle Day, I feel it eliminated that problem by adding in new cast members, something that I feel CoE really should have attempted instead of bloody killing off another cast member.
Wow, I don't think I've ever seen anyone so totally misunderstand Children of Earth or what it was trying to do. It was different from series one and two because it was supposed to be. It wasn't trying to continue Torchwood as it had been. It wasn't supposed to be warm or have a team atmosphere. It was a story about survivors and loss. And it worked brilliantly.
