Torchwood meets Nikolai Dante - sort of

One thing did stick out in last night's opening episode - the costume of guest star James Masters. He was playing Captain John Hart, a former Time Agent and rambling rogue [pictured above]. Cocky, arrogant, too cool to kill. He also dressed a lot like Russian rogue Nickolai Dante, from the pages of 2000 AD [as shown on the book cover at right]. Still, I'm sure the resemblance is entirely coincidental. Great minds think alike, yes?

Wow, finally an advantage to not owning the rights to the character.

I don't have to care!

I watched the first ten minutes out of curiosity, then I started losing the will to live...

Wouldn't be the first time new-Who has skimmed through the Galaxies Greatest...

My first thought when he stepped out as well. I'll give Torchwood another few episodes to get better. I bet that fish head looked awful in HD.

I was too busy thinking Adam Ant/David Hemmings in CHARGE OF THE LIGHT BRIGADE, but now you've said it, it's obvious...

No, not just you Mr Lee. I was half expecting her to use a souped up cellphone to call Rodice back on the Hoop.
