Well, I could have done without Rex. Really liked Shapiro and Ester. Altho I knew poor Ester's days were numbered. She was an amalgam of Ianto and Tosh, so RTD would be desperate to sacrifice her at his earliest chance.
Why, for the love a Pete, did he make Rex immortal??? Why?
I get the feeling that RTD is toying with us, seeing how far he can go before we all just get together and thro him off the cliff.
I have always maintained that a lot of the fanfic writers do as good a job as he does, if not better.
Remember, RTD walked away from both TW and DW so he could go off and be a script writer in Hollywood. He never intended to do anymore. BBC was happy to let TW sit on a shelf and grow moss. The only reason there was an MD, the only way there will be anymore TW, is because Starz thought that there was enough of an interested fan base to make a new TW financially viable. They waved enough money under RTD's nose to catch his interest. And of course, John and Eve would have jumped at the chance to do something that would get them on American TV. What an opportunity!
As a big Jack fan I can only hope that Starz will want to try again. Maybe with a new showrunner? Maybe delve into the fandom, find some of those really competent writers and give them the chance to actually write a real TW script? Sigh. I live on hope.
