YOU: Hey, Mike. You saw the final episode of TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY, right?

ME: Yup. I did.

YOU: Can you tell me about it?

ME: I'll tell you what I know.

YOU: Okay. So what was The Blessing?

ME: I don't know.

YOU: Huh? Didn't they show it in the last two episodes?

ME: Yup. They did.

YOU: So what was it?

ME: I dunno.

YOU: Oookeey. What about the families? Who are the families?

ME: I dunno.

YOU: You did watch the whole episode, didn't you?

ME: Oh, yes. I watched it all.

YOU: So who are the families?

ME: I dunno.

YOU (getting frustrated) Are you sure you were paying attention? Were they aliens? They did that weird triangle handshake thing. Only aliens would do that. They must have been aliens, right?

ME: I dunno.

YOU: Were you drunk while you were watching?

ME: Nope. I was completely sober.

YOU: But you don't know what the Blessing was and you don't know who the families are?

ME: Nope.

YOU: Is there anybody else I can talk to who knows the answers?

ME: Got a phone book for Wales? You can look up Russell T. Davies. He might know. Maybe.

I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?

I don't know either but I know I enjoyed this series immensely. I just thought the 'blessing' was some kind of Earth vagina and left it at that. To probe further would have make my imagination explode.

Actually I did enjoy the series overall, despite not really being told everything. It was nowhere near as good as CHILDREN OF EARTH, but it was quite good and kept the Torchwood integrity (and the little Doctor Who references peppered throughout made me happy). I hope there will be more Torchwood.

Yeah, a giant Earth vagina is as good an explanation as any. To probe further would be... uh... yeah, better stop there. There might be young 'un's reading.
