Extra! – Day One, Chibnall-Style

VerityExtraDay1Time for another first-based Extra! (Which is sadly sans-Deb–damn real world!) Join Erika, Katrina, and Lynne as we talk about Chris Chibnall’s first foray into the televised Doctor Who universe. It’s not an ep of DW, however. The first he wrote was the second episode of Torchwood, “Day One”. It’s a solid start that gets the series rolling with lots of delicious character interaction and provides much-needed visibility for bisexual people. That’s our story and we’re sticking to it.

Have you seen “Day One”? Did you enjoy it as much as we did? Or is “camp-noir” not for you? Let us know in the comments!
