Neil Gaiman on S1 Torchwood:

Yesterday I composed an entire thing in my head I didn't write down about Why The People in Torchwood Season One Are All Too Stupid To Live -- including the astonishingly puzzling incident where someone in 1941 has written something down on paper with black ink (a medium that will last legibly for centuries if kept out of the sun), and, unaccountably worried that ink on paper will fade and become unreadable in time, first she takes a prototype Polaroid photo of it, and then writes some of it in blood and puts it in a coffee can in a damp cellar, because these media will still be readable seventy years later. Why she didn't make a model of it out of chocolate as well, I will never know.)

Nothing further to add, except maybe WORD and that I wish he had written it. Really need to do something about downloading season two, since I hear that the characters are appearing a little less 'Too Stupid To Live.'

Current Mood: amused amused
Current Music: Jans Lekman- Opposite of Hallelujah
