i absolutely love how ten’s first season of doctor who introduces torchwood but just mentions it here and there and never actually shows it, but stresses that it’s regarded as this top secret super mysterious organisation with a higher order than the government and more powerful than the doctor himself, just enough to get everyone intrigued, so everyone watching is thinking oohohoho, what’s torchwood??? and then the actual spinoff show gets made and it turns out it’s just a bunch of aggressively depressed and perpetually horny bisexuals who have chinese takeaway tuesdays and occasionally shag aliens


Death: I’ve come to take you
