Once upon a time, I loved Torchwood. It was absurd and silly and occasionally (perhaps often) stupid. But I loved it. I enjoyed the show, I like the fans, and I made some truly wonderful friends through the fandom. And then Children of Earth happened. I loved it. I though it was amazing. It made me feel more intensely than almost anything else on television had ever done. Yes, it was dark. Yes, characters died. And the fandom that I saw, imploded.
