Review: Torchwood, Episode 2.11, "Adrift"

Showrunner Chris Chibnall wrote this episode, and while its tone feels more like an episode from the first season, it also reveals how much he's developed as a writer since last season. It's not the cracky fun of Chibnall's season opener, "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang". Instead it's in the serious vein of a Cath Tregenna-penned story, with an emotional ending that really grips your heart. However one cares to describe it, it works very well. Horrible sound mix, though. The music and background sound effects frequently drown out the dialog.

Warning: spoilers below, please highlight the white space with your mouse to read them.

It's nice to see a Gwen-centric episode. She's seemed to be too much in the background at times this season. And, yay, PC Andy returns--and is jealous of Rhys!
