Captain Jack Harkness

Thursday Thirteen

I’ve been watching the first season of Torchwood this month. It’s the first time I’ve watched the show, and I’ve fallen in love with Captain Jack Harkness. He’s such a fascinating, intriguing character. My favorite bookstore is having a 25% sale, starting on Boxing day, and I’m heading straight there to purchase season two.

  16. For those of you who haven’t seen Torchwood – it’s made by the BBC in England and is a dark paranormal show. Captain Jack first appeared as a character in Doctor Who. It’s very sexy and some of the episodes are even a bit creepy. I’m hooked :grin:
