The Reader Awards 2008

Last year, following the conclusion of Torchwood's first season on British television, launched a successful "Reader's Awards". This year it's back - bigger and better than ever before, with new categories and a lot else besides!

Send an email to the following address; answering each of the following categories. All the results will be added together after the closing date (April 3oth) - and we'll announce the winners in May!


Mark each story out of 10 - 10 being the highest; 1 the lowest. We'll add the results together, and find (based on averages) the highest through to the lowest rated adventures.

1: "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang"
2: "Sleeper"
3: "To the Last Man"
4: "Meat"
5: "Adam"
6: "Reset"
7: "Dead Man Walking"
8: "A Day in the Death"
9: "Something Borrowed"
10: "From Out of the Rain"
11: "Adrift"
12: "Fragments"
13: "Exit Wounds"


We never got a chance to do this last year. Following Jack's appearence in the 'Master Trilogy' I figure now's as good a time as any! Again, mark out of ten:

1: "The Unquiet Dead" (with Eve Myles)
2: "Aliens of London" (with Naoko Mori cameo)
3: "The Empty Child" / "The Doctor Dances" (with John Barrowman)
4: "Boomtown" (with John Barrowman)
5: "Bad Wolf" / "The Parting of the Ways" (with John Barrowman)
6: "Utopia" / "Sound of Drums" / "Last of the Time Lords" (with John Barrowman)


Choose from any of the regular cast (although last year's winner, John Barrowman, is excluded - for the sake of giving the rest of the team a chance to shine!!)

1: Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper)
2: Burn Gorman (Owen Harper)
3: Naoko Mori (Toshiko Sato)
4: Gareth David Lloyd (Ianto Jones)
5: Kai Owen (Rhys Williams)

2: Best audio commentary (which specific episode did you enjoy best??)


Give a five word (no more!) summary of the second season. The ten best will acompany the results when they're published next month!


Leave your opinions of the site here. They won't be published on the main site, but will help me and the site's other writer's understand what you, the reader, want to see more/less of - and how successful a job we're doing!
