What did the world think of Miracle Day’s finale?

Warning! This article and its comments may contain spoilers...

Miracle Day reached its dramatic conclusion in the UK on BBC One on Thursday night, with an audience of 3.9million tuning in for its final instalment.

According to the Telegraph, the episode was “very talky”, and they have praised Eve Myles in particular for her “bravura performance”. The Guardian admits that the series climaxed “with actually quite a bit of class”, and the Independent also agrees that it “was rounded off in supreme style”. SFX have given the “irritatingly vague” episode 2.5 out of 5.

Elsewhere, Radio Times has said The Blood Line “suffered from uneven pacing, careless characterisation and a lack of focus”, but do you agree? Was the finale a worthy ending?

So, that’s it for Torchwood: Miracle Day! Thanks to everyone who has commented/rated in our discussions over the last 10 weeks. We’ll have to wait and see if Jack and Gwen will be back for more, but, in the mean time, you can relive the Miracle over at our mini-site!

Looking into the future, what would you like to see in Series 5? Or do you agree with John that a movie would be the the right way forward for the team? Have your say below!

    My word to describe this entire season, minus a couple of enjoyable eps, is meh.

    Same here. “Uneven pacing” pretty much describes this entire series. This was certainly no “Children of Earth”. They coulsd have told the story in half the episodes. It felt like the stretched it out to meet a contractual obligation with Starz for 10 episodes. Even with better pacing, the story was still just ok, not great.

    Gah. That ended *really* badly, for all kinds of reasons. I think my jaw actually dropped when the bad guys stood around, explaining how the heroes could stop the Evil Plan For World Domination…and then continued to stand around as the heroes sloooooooowly started, well, stopping the Evil Plan.

    That’s it then … you’d all rather have a great big blank nothing on your screens than have a Torchwood which could improve and grow ….. I give up ….

    @Nicolette Baker Yo, demanding something better isn’t a big leap.

    Nicolette: I’m not anti-Torchwood, I just don’t think what I saw was very good.

    I give up too, we’re clearly in a minority here! But it was brilliant, I don’t care what anyone says!

    Ach. I’ve got to be honest, as much as I love Torchwood and co…when the Family started talking about Plan B at the end, I found myself shouting “No, no, no!” at the idea of doing all that again. It was a good idea. But the whole series has been far too inconsistent to warrant repeat.

    Send them back to Cardiff. Give them 45mins to save the world/Wales from some tenticle-y monster. Throw in a few innuendos for good measure. Bring back the Torchwood that we know and love.

    Oh, and what was with the last lines? “That’s impossible!” “What? What?! WHAT?!” I was almost expecting to see David Tennant come flying in, demanding royalties.
