"Tosh was right though, she went for the ex-boyfriend. Lucky she's young. Work your way through my back catalog, we'll be here till the sun explodes."
-- Captain Jack Harkness, Torchwood: "Day One"
No longer lost in time and space, my partner in time Jesse Jackson and I are finally back with a new episode of the award-winning Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast! This time, we review "Day One", the second episode of the Doctor Who spinoff series Torchwood, starring John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness and Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, and written by incoming Doctor Who showrunner Chris Chibnall!
In this episode, Jesse and I discuss things like Jesse's latest Kentucky bourbon trip with his wife Linda, my mom's recent liver cancer diagnosis, Torchwood being Jesse's gateway drug to the Doctor Who universe, Torchwood being pitched as the "adult" version of Doctor Who with more mature themes, my being cautious about Torchwood as a Doctor Who spinoff, Captain Jack Harkness bringing sexy back, Captain Jack being an enigmatic mystery to his coworkers, Gwen's horrible first day with the Torchwood team, Owen being a bit of a bully, the flirtation between Jack and Gwen, Carys being possessed by an alien that feeds off orgasmic energy, the somewhat shocking bathroom sex scene, Gwen and Carys making out in a cell as the rest of the team watches, my Reverse the Polarity segment, Paul from Australia's kind personal message, new feedback from Paul from Australia and Holly from Wisconsin, bonus audio of Jesse talking Doctor Who on his Bruce Springsteen podcast Set Lusting Bruce, and more!
