Thought I'd mention the sensitive subject of character deaths in the series, mainly as I am curious to know peoples opinions  Grin

Tosh. Without a doubt. Though all of them moved me with the exception of Owen. I tried and tried to take to his character but just couldnt. Toshiko's death was so moving and I wont deny I shed a tear. Her little video message at the end too (a la 'Angel's' Doyle) was a lovely little way of saying goodbye too

Id much rather see the return of Tosh. Even if it was only for one episode or a flashback or something. I liked Ianto, but I really feel his character was done and dusted

Steven was Jack's grandson...

I have to admit, that Steven's death made me shed a tear... Jack and Steven had such a lovely relationship through series 3, and when Jack uses Steven to kill the 456, it made me sad. How could he use someone who he loved to fix something like that?

Also I must admit that Exit Wounds episode got me too, not so much with Owen's death... I figured he may die at the end of the series or at least play a lesser role as an "outcast" now that he dies forever. But the way they did Tosh's death got me too  Cry

Oh was that his name? I totally forgot. Yea his dying was sad, but moreso because we all knew it kinda had to happen, and Jack had to do it to his own grandson. Punch in the gut moment, but awesome

*gets ready to confess*

I never cried over Owen or Tosh... I got sad, but not a single tear was shed.

For Ianto, I have never cried so much. It was ridiculous, I knew it was coming, there was a line and I went "Oh, no, I can't be right, please, no, no, oh god." So for Day 4 at the end I shouting at the tv screen "I can't be right! Don't let me be right!".

*confesses* I still havent seen Day 5 for a 2nd time... I have only seen Day 4 twice, I just get so emotionally drained it is ridiculous! I loved Ianto, but he had a good story and a good conclusion so I wouldn't want that to be affected. I miss him though, I loved his one-liners! His welshness, his coffee, him being prepared, him and Jack.... *snaps out of memories*

By the time it came to Steven I was expecting anything, I didn't think it was that big a shock, I may have cried, but it wasn't as hard hitting as Ianto. Like I said, I was emotionally drained.

I think the other character that makes me close to crying was Estelle, I think it is Jacks grief at the end. But that always makes me sad.

Although we don't see his death I get sad at the death of the real Captain Jack, its the fade away and of course at that moment the kiss scene has made me cry, or at least come close...

But no, Tosh and Owen really didn't affect me too much. I am more likely to get upset at the scene where Tosh's message pops up and they are all crying. Its when I see people cry obviously.  Undecided

Tosh. I am sick to death with the lack of strong, intelligent, female chars in scifi. Seems the last time we had them was when RTD was around along with Joss Whedon and J Michael Straczynski.

Moffat cannot do, does not know how to do, probably never will do. I want my Fred, my Willow, my Tosh, my Ivanova, my Delenn--and I'd like to see one as a companion, thanks.

I think with the writing panel we have it's guarenteed for the next Torchwood series Cheesy

This is gonna sound a bit weird but the reason I find CoE so upsetting (in a good way) is the death of Frobisher and his family to 'save' them from 456. It was horrific to think he was in such a no win situation and I keep putting myself there. Everyone else (apart from Jack's grandson) was involved by choice. Those two little girls though. Mammy and Daddy asks you to go into the bedroom ... Awful (and powerful).

Yes that got me too, and the acting by Peter Calpaldi as always was SUPERB!  The worst thing is he didn't need to do it, as Torchwood sorted it in the end.  Yet this is what I loved so much about it, "everbody lives" is not for me!

But that one scene ripped me to bits and you are right, the futility I think is what impacts so much. At least Jack's grandson (not that it was pleasant) but you could see why Jack did it. With Frobisher if he'd just held on... Really devastating!

The worst part about the deaths of Frobisher and his family is how it could have been avoided if he'd just waited a while, they'd have been fine. With that and Steven's death, it takes a lot to affect me but CoE managed it.

If the next series is half as good as that truly outstanding television event (imo of course) it will be great Cheesy

I think it's very apt that Owen has no votes yet - I really disliked everything about that character & not a fan of whatshisface playing him either.

I was raging that Tosh died, it was a heavy moment for sure.

I'd put Frobisher out of my memory - as a parent that bit really seriously disturbed me.
Do you think they got the idea from The Mist?

Hands up, has anyone managed to watch CotE since it was broadcast?
I can't do it.
It's brilliant, but just too heavy in places.
