Sarah Jane & Torchwood - 11 August 2008
This Monday we watched a Sarah Jane adventure. I was visited by Pam Peck from Oregon, Jacob Klein and Julia Benjamin from Vermont, and of course Bojana Skrt who is here for the end of the summer.
We wanted to watch a Sarah Jane Adventure because Pam was interested in finding out more so she could share them with her son, Ben, who is 10. We watched "Warriors of Kudlak" and had a lot of fun with it. The Sarah Jane stories, while designed more for children, really interest me because of the themes and the way it includes all age ranges in the action. Sarah Jane got some nice backtalking in to the baddies after she had bested them at a few points in the show.
People got so into it they wanted another, and so we watched the first episode of the second season of Torchwood, called "Kiss,Kiss,Bang,Bang." Torchwood (an anagram of Doctor Who) is very different but also fun even if it is more violent and a lot darker.
Probably back to the Doctor next week.
