Re: How do you feel about Torchwood Miracle Day

What's wrong with Jack's 30 seconds in The End of Time. It's obviously not long after Ianto's death and he leaves Earth, and the dying Doctor gets him to flirt with Alonso.
After Torchwood season 1, I've always felt that Doctor Who got Jack "wrong." That Doctor Who stripped him of his angst and treated him less realistically.

Tonally, the Jack of "End of Time" doesn't match the Jack of Children of Earth. He's a man who had just lost everything, and it doesn't work for me when next we see him.
