    Torchwoord Miracle day was a great story! I still like it very much! Altough I like Doctor Who very much, John Barrowman & Eve Myles are far better as actors!

    Why does everyone keep saying they didn’t vote for Torchwood? It isn’t even an option.


      January 7th, 2012 - 3:27pm

    Torchwood! That doesn’t deserve an award! It needs to be burned for wasting 10 hours of my time.

      Couldn’t have put it better myself! MD wasted my time and bored me to death! Didn’t mind Immortal Sins because of the classic Torchwood feel to it but it still had a LOT of ridiculous moments!

    Merlin was much better than Doctor Who in 2011 so it was a choice between that and Downton Abbey.
    Merlin won through.

    • Haza14

      Got to agree that Merlin was absolutely brilliant in 2011, but I think Doctor Who still has the edge, just!

    • supremedalek

      merlin was good but doctor who appeals to more people and should have the right to get more votes because it has stayed on tv screens even with a break for early 50 years so should get more votes for being the best sci-fi programe in the history of time and thats what i think about the matter.

    Doctor Who!!!!!!! Torchwood was awful last year! Shame really as the show was so damn good before!

  • The Last Centurion

    January 2nd, 2012 - 11:16am

    Don’t vote Torchwood as it was a terrible series didn’t enjoy a bit of it.

    • The Wooden Prince (Where was he in the episode?)

      January 2nd, 2012 - 12:16pm

      I (surpisingly) liked Immortal Sins because that felt like classic Torchwood. I’ll be voting for Matt and Karen.

      Last Centurion – People can decide wither or not they want to vote for Torchwood, not have someone tell them what to do just because you didint like the spin-off. First two series where awesome, but Children of Earth and Miracle Day really killed the show, so best it never returns cos it aint what it used to be, it just aint Torchwood without Tosh, Lanto, Owen and the Torchwood Hub, all set in little old Cardiff.

    • the TARDIS

      January 3rd, 2012 - 9:47am

      I didn’t mind Children of Earth but agree, Miracle Day was rubbish.

      Although there where many great scenes, characters, and episodes (the last episode in particular) in Torchwood: Miracle Day, it was the worst of the 4 Torchwood Series so far, however, you can’t deny that Eve Myles and John Barrowman were, again, on top form with there acting, and really carried the series fantastically.

      Whether they were better than Matt Smith and Karen Gillian, well, I just don’t know.

    Some tough votes there but I voted for Matt Smith and Eve Myles as I thought that overall, they gave the best performances.

  • Jason doctorwhoone

    January 2nd, 2012 - 9:43am

    Oh Smeg, who I can either vote for Matt Smith or John Barrowman for best actor, and either Karen Gillan or Eve Myles for best actress . . . . I CAN’T CHOOSE !!, all all great really, but atleast I have no problem in voting best TV drama which is – DOCTOR WHO !!!!!! 😀
