Under Torch Wood
Monday 6th November, 2006 11:56 Comments: 0
I've just started reading this, and it looks interesting, but the bit that caught my eye is the intro, which is clearly meant to be a parody of Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood (which I covered in year 9?). I love when I understand references like that (and Captain Jack/Captain Cat).

To begin at the beginning. It is a wet, windy, winsome winter evening over the Cardiff bay development; the headachy halogen and sour sodium lights tickling the glinty, greasy, newly-repointed-and-polished-up-nicely cobblestones and reflected and redoubled in shimmershivering puddles.

And they really take the piss out of Torchwood too.

Aah, geeks with a sense of humour and an appreciation of literature.
