40 Favorite Television Characters ll 1.Gwen Cooper (Torchwood)

“There’s one thing I always meant to ask Jack. Back in the old days. I wanted to know about that Doctor of his. The man who appears out of nowhere and saves the world. Except sometimes he doesn’t. All those times in history when there was no sign of him, I wanted to know why not. But I don’t need to ask any more. I know the answer now. Sometimes the Doctor must look at this planet, and turn away in shame.”

40 Favorite Television Characters ll 3.Doctor Owen Harper (Torchwood)

“My name is Doctor Owen Harper, and this is my life. A life that is full of action. And violence. And work and wonder. Secrets. And sex. And love. And heartbreak. Death. My death. The death I survived. The death I’m now living through. Except…. this isn’t living. Every day is the same, I get up, get ready for work. Same as everyone else. The thing is, I’m not the same. I get to work and everyone is doing the same old thing. Babbling away about aliens, weddings. I’m not real. Three days ago I died. And they think I’m fine, but they’re wrong.”
