10isalivingconversecommercial asked: Torchwood or Doctor Who

Send me two characters/shows/ships/anything and I’ll tell you through a gifset which one I prefer!

If they don’t want to bring Torchwood back or can’t get the original team for whatever reason, how about a Torchwood set at the turn of the 19th century?

Alice and Emily and Charles. And Jack Harkness, of course. He wouldn’t even have to be a regular character since he was more of a field agent back then anyway.

I’d watch the hell out of a show about turn of the century lesbians (maybe Emily is bi?) fighting aliens.

nightmaresinajar asked:

Did you purposely make torchwood just doctor who scrambled?

Russell T. Davies did! But it started out as a way to trick people trying to get production secrets on Doctor Who:

During the production of the 2005 series of Doctor Who, the word “Torchwood” (an anagram of “Doctor Who”) had been used as a title ruse for the series while filming its first few episodes to ensure they were not intercepted. Davies connected the word “Torchwood” to an earlier idea and decided to make the series a Doctor Who spin-off. Subsequently, the word “Torchwood” was seeded in Doctor Who episodes and other media that aired in 2005 and 2006.

btw, there’s a Facebook group dedicated to this topic.

edit: there’s also a tumblr dedicated to reblogging every person who has this realization.
