Now that the show is over for another year (well, potentially forever) here in the UK and Australia I thought now was the ideal time to launch what has become a TORCHWOOD.tv tradition - the end of series Reader Awards!
The Awards are open to all site readers, so I encourage you to copy and paste the below categories, and then email your responses to this email address.
Closing date for entries is noon on Wednesday July 29th - which gives readers in the USA a chance to vote (for the first time) once the series concludes there on the 24th.
The results will be announced on July 31st, in what'll prove to be one of my last posts for the site.
Good luck, and get voting!
RATE THE EPISODES
Give each episode a score out of 10 - with 10 meaning 'exceptional' and 1 being 'abysmal'. Please, don't just pick one episode; make sure you score them all!
1: "Children of Earth - Day One"
2: "Children of Earth - Day Two"
3: "Children of Earth - Day Three"
4: "Children of Earth - Day Four"
5: "Children of Earth - Day Five"
For a complete overview now mark the story as a whole out of 10:

Who, from the whole of the CoE cast and crew, most deserves a spotlight of recognition for their work on the mini-series?
