Critic Reviews for Torchwood: Children of Earth

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (9)

Though it rushes a bit through its final episode, Torchwood: Children of Earth is big in a way that very little of TV aspires to anymore.

The miniseries aims to shake viewers.

It's fair to say that show really came into its own with the third series Children of Earth... with a scope that recalls the Quatermass shows and a creepiness that echoes Children of the Damned.

May 22, 2016 | Full Review…

It's a propulsive action-adventure.

July 6, 2009 | Full Review…

With British accents and a refreshing dash of homoeroticism, it works nicely for a midsummer binge.

July 6, 2009 | Full Review…

Children of Earth is still good fun, if not good, exactly.
