Yes we get DW Confidential thanks, that's what I meant about the teasers for 2011.

Thanks for the link, although in this instance I had seen it.

Well I was only half awake at the time.

Memo to self. In future, get some sleep before you post.

I have to say I really enjoyed this season - probably more than previous recent seasons. It really did get quite good. Even my father, who typically finds DW a bit... "off" for him, enjoyed it.

I actually thought this first season was "proper" Dr Who a bit more like previous Dr's and not poster boy Dr , i liked his acting and eccentricity in the role .

However I know lots of girls/women who only watched the first episode then gave up.

I just wrapped up the entire new series (back to back every season via netflix). I am currently on season 2 of torchwood. Next up will be the 20+ years of the original doctor who series.

After watching all of this again back to back over a few weeks i noticed that there are a lot of bisexual relationships in the show. With Torchwood its every other paragraph of dialogue. All UK TV or just the Doctor Who & spin off series? I don't watch a lot of network TV so may be i missed this new trend but i cant think of any US based shows that go this far this frequently.

Torchwood was trying to be "edgy" and, frankly, that aspect turned me off and I didn't watch much of it. It's more subtle on Doctor Who and American shows, and usually played to comedic effect.

And Don't forget An Adventure in Space and Time - recounting the birth of Doctor Who.

PS
I'm not overly keen on Torchwood either.

You didn't miss much. The entire show revolved around the necessity for every character to react strangely to every set of circumstances that came their way. The new girl starts out sleeping with the guy who was sleeping with the girl who tried to kill her while the asian woman has been in love with the guy that the new girl considers a "tosser" even though shes sleeping with him. New girl is also in love with jack but hes too busy with the receptionist whos hiding his cyber-chick in the basement.

The other odd aspect was that Torchwood is hundreds of years old but its just the 5 of them hiding out in plain sight...unlike the well oiled military style machine that was Torchwood in the Doctor Who series. That show could have been much better.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Madame Vastra/Jenny/Strax spin off.
