“Buffy” Vs. “Torchwood”: Which Did a Better Job Killing Its Gay Character?
"And for the record, as one of the fans upset by Ianto Jones death to the extent that I can't see myself watching again, even if there is another series, I took great personal offence at some of Davies comments - especially the ew.com interview with the "go watch Supernatural, those boys are beautiful" one. I did not watch Torchwood or like Ianto Jones because I wanted to get into his pants. I wanted to get into his head. Because he was bi like me, learning to love someone of his own gender and such a genuinely identifiable character that I could empathise with. That is why I was so angry at his death.
And why I will miss him so very much. Or will I?
Because this is sci fi. And anything is possible.
This. This is from one of the comments over at the After Elton website. And this is precisely why RTD is a twat. He just doesn't understand. Or pretends he doesn't understand, which is even worse. He had a precious gem and he threw it away.
