Just watched this series on recommendations from a friend..A few comments It was pretty harsh (in a good way). I was definitely tearing up at many points in the last episode.
No one should have to make the decisions that Capt Jack had to make, but I suppose that was one of the main points of the whole episode.
I really enjoyed but I think it could have been done in far fewer episodes (probably 3 instead of 5) I haven't watched any torchwood before, but have seen the characters on "The Stolen Earth" (and Jack on season 1 and 2)
All in all I liked it but wouldn't sit through it again, except maybe the last episode, if I feel like getting myself to the verge of crying.
Having a child of my own has done this too me I'd like to hear other opinions on this series if anyone would care to join the discussion Pete
