Opinions Required, to forward to the BBC

 

RTD and his team must be in the early stages of looking at what they want to accomplish in the second season of Torchwood.  As such, I thought it would be a good time for us fans to give some feedback.  I was thinking of writing something myself, but then I thought it would have much more impact if we  - the LiveJournal community fans – all contributed.  I mean, we’re a pretty opinionated bunch when it comes to Torchwood!

 

What I’d like to do, and it won’t work without your input, is to compile as many fans views on Torchwood as possible.  I will then forward them onto the production team at the BBC.  They may or may not read it, but I like to think that ‘The Powers That Be’ are interested to know what the die-hard fans think of the show.  After all, we’re the ones who promote it online, whether we’re creating web pages, writing fic or generally saying how much we love Torchwood.  You never know; our opinions may have an impact.

 

Please read under the cut, to see how you can contribute...

 

I’m hoping I’ll get lots of responses and I’m happy to receive feedback in any format.  However, it will make my life a lot easier if you could try and split your views into the following categories.  I’ve given some examples of the possible things each could cover.

 

What was good about Season 1 (design of The Hub, the characters, humour, particular episodes for either good stories, characterisation or squee)

 

What wasn’t so good about Season 1 (e.g. lack of continuity from one episode to another, holes in plots, rushed stories)

 

 

What you’d like to see in Season 2 in terms of;

 

Character Development (e.g. defining their roles within Torchwood.  Glimpses of their lives/or lack of lives outside Torchwood.  Showing proper, consistent, feelings and opinions.  Making us care about the characters)

 

Team Dynamics/Relationships (Who’s second in command in Jack’s absence.  Who does Jack report to?  Should Gwen and Rhys stay together?  Should Gwen and Owen’s affair develop into something more?  Do I need to mention Jack/Ianto?)

 

Stories/Plot Ideas (Here’s an idea.  How about arming the human race instead of destroying most of the alien tech they retrieve?  Owen being affected by that Weevil bite.  The second glove.  Alien devices that unharness suppressed desires, Bad!Jack, Ianto finding out he’d been ret-con’d at Torchwood 1 because of something he knew/did, a sexy male recurring-character nemesis to mind-fuck – and fuck – Jack.  I could go on...

 

Miscellaneous (Umm, whatever you care to add.)

 

 

If you follow the above, I can then cut and paste, and it will make things clearer to whomever reads it.

 

One other request.  I wholly acknowledge the importance of squee, but if we’re going to exert any influence, we need some depth to our views please.  For example, we may want to see Jack/Ianto sex.  (No, really!)  However indicating something to the effect of wanting to see the writers explore the dynamic of their relationship and expand on the brief glimpses we’ve seen so far may prove more effective.   Not that I’m trying to lead you, or anything!   I promise to forward all views I receive regardless of content, unless offensive or derogatory to actors, production team or the efforts made by all concerned.  Of course there should be criticism, but make it constructive. 

 

Feel free to post a link to your views on your LJ.  Alternatively, email me at asudderick@aol.com.   Once I’ve compiled the responses, I’ll ensure it’s posted somewhere for everyone to read.  I’m only really familiar with the Torchwood LJ community, but if there’s somewhere else this plea should be posted to get more views, then please either post yourself or let me know so I can do so.  I’m going to give everyone until January 19th to come back to me.

 

Lastly, can someone provide an address.  I assume BBC Cardiff, but if there is an alternative where it’s likely to reach RTD then that would be useful.  I’m happy to post to more than one place!

 

Phew – think that’s all.  Please contribute!!!!
