Preview: Episode Four

What's it called?

"Meat"

Who's it credited to?

Catherine Tregenna, writer ("Out of Time", "Captain Jack Harkness") and Colin Teague, director ("Ghost Machine", "Sleeper")

What do we know?

Rhys is introduced to the Torchwood team, as he helps them investigate a mysterious supply of meat that's hit Cardiff...

Major guest stars?

Kai Owen hogs the limelight as Rhys Williams. His own episode, at last!

Reviewing the reviews

Mixed, at best. Supposedly, it's a great episode for Kai Owen, who gets to show his acting en force. Less successful, we're told, is the story's science-fiction element.

When's it on?

Tonight, BBC Two @ 9pm. It's then repeated at 11:00pm over on BBC Three, and again tomorrow (BBC Two) from 7pm.

What about America?

"Meat" airs on BBC America Saturday 16th February, at 9pm. The BBC America schedule can be found here. You can also catch the episode in High Definition - on HD-Net - March 3rd.

Look to the future...

Next week's episode is "Adam", as we meet the latest recruit to Torchwood Three "Adam" - but he's not what he seems. Nothing is as it seems; not anymore... Following that, Martha Jones is back in "Reset", and nothing will ever be the same again for one member of the team...

Excitement level?

***1/2 - More Rhys, which is always a good thing. Shame the trailer last week didn't look too great. Guess we'll see. It is Miss Tregenna, after all :)

I thought it was really good! After the trailer last week I wasnt hoping for much but I thought it was a great episode! Lots of good lines and Gwen and Rhys yelling. Poor Space Whale.

That was bloomin fantastic and Rhys (Kai) was brilliant. I love the tension between Jack and Gwen. That is without a doubt the best TW to date!

I think Owen is gonna love and hate Martha's arrival.

I enjoyed the episode a great deal, though the 'space whale' looked kind of fake during a few sequences - other than that it was great. Torchwood is on a winning strike with not a single horrible episode. ;-0)

Poor Ianto-that's the trouble dating a pansexual! Maybe he could go out with Martha?

Loved it. I wasn't expecting much from last week's preview but I was pleasantly surprised. I was pretty indifferent to Rhys before, but now he's growing on me.
