Ianto rules!!! So do his fans :)

It's amazing the amount they raised for the Children In Need charity fund.
As of today it's up at 6,550.00 British pounds. And it's still going up!!!
That would be 7,579.04 Euros or 10,779.51 US Dollars. WOW!
At the moment the Save Ianto Jones campaign is the second in the top fundraisers for Children In Need.

“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 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.

Debenhams. Enough said.

Anyone wants to help me make a list of the amount of shit and abuse a certain character went through at the hands of the writers? Just for the lulz, because the more I think about this the more I get angry and any minute now I'm going for mass slaughter. So?

The way the character of Ianto Jones is treated in CoE is offensive, for the simple reason that the ONLY information we get about him, the only information the new viewers who have never seen Torchwood before are given about him, is that he is gay.

Was that the only thing that defined his character? Honestly, wasn't there anything else more interesting that could have been said about him?

Oh, wait. There was one. Debenhams!
