Torchwood: Children of Earth

 (TV) (2009)

Torchwood: Children of Earth Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Torchwood follows the adventures of a team of investigators, led by the enigmatic Captain Jack. Set in the UK in the present day, the team use scavenged alien technology in a very real world to solve crime; both alien and human. Separate from the government. Outside the police. Beyond the United Nations. Everyone who works for Torchwood is young, under 35. Some say that's because it's a new science. Others say it's because they die young...

For more about Torchwood: Children of Earth and the Torchwood: Children of Earth Blu-ray release, see Torchwood: Children of Earth Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Burn Gorman, Gareth David-Lloyd, Mekhi Phifer, Lauren Ambrose

Torchwood: Children of Earth Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Children of Earth features a 1080i/VC-1 transfer that, at first glance, shares a lot in common with Torchwood: The Complete Second Season's stunning Blu-ray presentation. However, upon further inspection, the miniseries is plagued by debilitating artificial sharpening, rampant ringing, frequent aliasing, and enough shimmer to blind a Weevil, all of which continually threatens to derail the proceedings. Worse still, skintones are often dull or flushed, colors are muddier, and noise reduction has been applied to several scenes. I'm not sure why there's such a discrepancy between the quality of The Complete Second Season and Children of Earth (particularly since the series and miniseries have been cut from the same aesthetic cloth), but the differences are apparent and abundant. Luckily, the presentation isn't a complete bust. Fine detail is thoroughly striking at times, crisp textures abound, and hair and skin look great. Granted, soft shots lurk around every corner, but they're the result of the miniseries' original source, not some mysterious technical issue. As it stands, artifacting, source noise, crush, and banding have been kept to a minimum, black levels are satisfying, and overall dimensionality (while a bit inconsistent) remains impressive throughout.

Ultimately, Children of Earth may not have received the same polish and care as The Complete Second Season, but it still bests its standard DVD counterpart and delivers a decent interlaced presentation.


Torchwood: Children of Earth Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Their video transfers may be worlds apart, but Children of Earth's DTS-HD High Resolution 5.1 surround track (not to be confused with a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio offering) is comparable to The Complete Second Season's HR mix (the only difference being a slight boost in audio bitrate, from 2.0 to 3.0 Mbps). Once again, the experience is heavy and intense, yet shallow and abrupt. While it all sounds great at first (especially when the miniseries' kiddies begin chanting in unison), it eventually struggles to inject any substantial subtlety into the soundscape. The rear speakers aren't called upon as readily as I had hoped they would be, LFE output is somewhat simplistic, and the majority of scenes offer surprisingly front-heavy effects. Moreover, ambience is solid but generally underwhelming, and interior acoustics are convincing but slightly two-dimensional. Thankfully, dialogue remains clean, intelligible, and well prioritized throughout the miniseries, and musical cues, pillars of fire, alien declarations, droning children, and key action sequences leave a lasting impression. All things considered, Children of Earth sounds pretty good... just don't expect to be blown away.
