I’ve just watched the climactic final episode of Torchwood. In short, it was a brilliant end to the best series so far, marred by a huge, gaping illogical plot point that could so easily have been avoided.
Here’s the spoiler. Close your eyes until the next paragraph if you don’t want to know. Jack was buried alive for almost 2,000 years and somehow didn’t become a stark raving crazy hairy person. They could have so easily just gone back 100 years or so and be dug up shortly after burial. That would have made much more sense and be far more satisfying. The whole buried-and-comes out just fine thing just didn’t work for me.
Shame, as the rest of the story was great.
