Review: Torchwood, Episode 2.8, "A Day in the Death"

After the disappointment of the previous episode, the show bounces back with a fine tale that begins in a place of darkness and finds its way to the light by the end. The script by Joseph Lidster, best known for his Doctor Who audio plays, puts the focus on...

Rather than pull a deus ex machina out of the hat that sees Owen returned to life (although it won't surprise me if something like that happens later this season or next season), the episode instead finds Owen coming to terms with what happened and finding a good reason to go on. On another note, I miss Martha already.
