Torchwood, loved by many, at least until the death of Gareth David Lloyd’s character Ianto Jones.
Twitter is, well, “atwitter” with fans lashing out. Threats of refusing to watch until Ianto Jones returns, “Torchwood is dead”, and, “they destroyed Torchwood” are among the many statements I have read personally.
In my opinion, all the characters so far have done a great deal to add a certain twist to the program. Granted, Gareth’s character was well portrayed. He brought just as much human emotion as Eve Myles’ character, Gwen Cooper did.
So what is it about Ianto Jones that can create such fierce loyalty in the fan base? I hope to use this post as a target for the fans to express their thoughts, and explain just what it is about Ianto’s magnetism.
Gwen Cooper, in my research, I have discovered a… distaste for this member of Torchwood. Many feel that of all the cast members to survive thus far, Eve Myles character should not have been one of them.
I also welcome your comments regarding Gwen Cooper, and why you feel her character has no place in Torchwood. Personally, I feel Eve Myles did a great job. I liked her humanity, her introduction to Torchwood gave us, the viewers, a look inside the mysterious and unknown depths of the entity that is, Torchwood.
So this post will most certainly be updated on a regular basis as the comments play out. But the big question is this…
Will Ianto Jones rise from the ashes to rescue Torchwood from an uncertain fate? It remains to be seen.
