Torchwood Case File #421623

In what's obviously straight out of an episode of Torchwood, a UFO was spotted flying over Cardiff earlier this month. Well, Jack did tell us the twenty-first century is when it all changes.

The art department at The Sun were kind enough to whip up this nifty illustration so we could see exactly what happened. The three-man police crew narrowly avoided being hit by the unidentified craft as they were about to land then proceeded to give chase until they were forced to turn around because they were low on fuel. The helicopter is equipped with hi-tech surveillance gear yet the craft was not caught on film. The crew could see the object with their naked-eyes but not with their night-vision goggles. 

The South Wales Police gave a statement yesterday saying, "We can confirm the Air Support Unit sighted an unusual aircraft. This was reported to the relevant authorities for their investigation." 

My favorite quote comes from Breitbart.com who also ran the story. After explaining the object was "flying-saucer shaped" as reported by The Sun, the police response was apparently, "Err..." Much like the response you'd get from someone who'd just been given an amnesia pill...

Cool story. But now it makes me wish Torchwood was back already! Oh well. At least Doctor Who is on tonight.

Apropos of nothing, how far along are you with Battlestar Galactica at this point? Have you managed to remain unspoiled about last week's mid-season finale?

I know me too! By the way, I haven't been watching Doctor Who, we're waiting to watch them all when it's done. We like being able to start the next one immediately in case it's a two (or 3) parter.

BG we are about a third through season 3. (Lee just got skinny again, haha) A lot has been going on recently so we haven't been home to watch it. And yes, I remain unspoiled, so much so that I didn't even know there had been a mid-season finale. Hooray for that though, gives us more time to catch up. :)

Yes, you have till early 2009 to get caught up on BSG. Turns out they decided to split the final season into two parts. Those bastards!

How awesome was that Season 2 finale?

Awesome, that gives me plenty of time.

I loved the season 2 finale, my boyfriend, not so much. He didn't like them down on the planet at all and couldn't wait for them to get back on the ships.
