Happy Saint David's Day To All Our Welsh Readers!

Yes, today, March 1st is a very special day for any folk living in Wales. Today is St. David's day, (St.David being the patron saint of Wales). It's a day of national pride across all of Wales, and a day of celebration. Throughout the land all are celebrating what makes Wales so great. So, everyone at torchwoodtv wishes the Doctor Who and Torchwood offices a happy March 1st. Have a great day guys! For more info on St. David click here.

THE FLAG OF SAINT DAVID (AND WELSH PRIDE)

Now, Kurly's look at the life and times of Eve Myles is due any day now, so I thought today would be the ideal time to print some recent comments the star made to ICWales following her casting. Eve Myles says:

"I'm a huge fan of Billie. I think she's absolutely amazing - she's just fantastic. But mine is a very different character to Rose - they're pretty much like chalk and cheese.Gwen starts off as a police officer in Cardiff and then gets involved in the Torchwood team.She's a very down-to-earth girl, kind and generous, but extremely ambitious, feisty, intelligent and witty. But she's also very human - she's really the girl next door. Because I'm playing her, I put a lot of me into it and I take a lot of my own characteristics.She's a brave girl and you have to be brave in this kind of business, and take risks and be ambitious - not too ambitious though, because there's nothing worse than that.But she's very level-headed and in that sense I'm like her, although she's probably a bit braver and more inquisitive."

So, Gwen definately isn't Gwynth from last year's Doctor Who episode "The Unquiet Dead". She's a modern day police office working in Cardiff who sometimes gets caught up in the antics of Jack Harkness. The girl falls for Jack? Typical!

See you guys soon.
