Apparently I managed to get a sore throat just in time for New Year. *sigh*

Anyway. This is another thing I wanted to start before the holidays but never got around to; since these '30 Days of...' memes keep popping up on my friendsfriends page I was wondering if someone had maybe done one for Torchwood, and found one on tumblr. (I tweaked the list a bit and threw out a few questions about behind-the-scenes stuff and fan stuff since I don't really follow either, and replaced them with questions from other memes; the original set of questions is here.)

30 Days of Torchwood: Day 01: Favourite Torchwood Member

Jack. Not because he's perfect, God knows he isn't, but because he's such an interestingly flawed, complex character. There are moments where I love him, and moments where I don't even like him, but he's the character I keep coming back to, and keep writing and thinking about. Jack personifies what I find intriguing about Torchwood, the ambiguity, the difficult decisions, the specific existentialist philosophic angle of the show, the struggle for meaning. I'm not the kind of person who can maintain an interest in a show only for the minor characters, almost in spite of the main themes. I either like the story, protagonist and all, or I don't.

Jack, because he keeps going, even if it's only because he has to. Because he keeps trying, even though he doesn't have to.
