I got home from work, and somehow it was like INSTA!BAD MOOD! Usually it's the other way around. But I sat down, and suddenly today's stomach cramps turned into hiccups, and then there was the casting call for the new Torchwood characters, and that was like RTD had sat down to create the maximum amount of fail possible. So no good mood for Liz! Maybe I'll feel better after I've had a shower and a glass of wine*.

In the meantime, let's all admire RTD's casting call. The new characters on Torchwood are:

- asshole white guy
- woman of colour who unrequitedly loves asshole white guy
- Roman Polanski

Things which don't seem to upset belly: lighter red wines, smoked salmon and marscapone pizza, strawberry and lime cider, frozen spaghetti bolognese, Arnotts Country Cheese crackers, raspberry and orange juice. Things which do upset belly: EVERYTHING ELSE.

Here via network...oh dear. I would like to say something more severe than oh dear but yeah, nothing's coming. If it's not a hoax. Definitely not a hoax? Though if so, aww, they made it all convincing fitting in RTD's inability to think of names for his characters that aren't 'Jones'.

I hope Martha and Mickey fuck their omgsoHARDandDANGEROUSandEDGY shit up.

I'll freely admit I expected the Owen and Tosh/Martha-retread. But Roman Polanski??? Wtf is wrong with Rusty's head that he'd think this was a good thing? Couldn't he "just" make him a murderer instead of a pedophile? How did the production company sign off on this? Oh god. Rusty's turning into Anne "I will have no editors tell me what to do" Rice, isn't he?

I'm highly unlikely to watch whatever series of Torchwood results from this, but to be fair, every casting call I've ever seen has sounded that weird - it seems to be some secret industry way of getting the pool of actors they want for the part. I remember the one for Gwen from Merlin specified that she wore glasses?

That wasn't the casting call, it was the synopsis of the series on the website of (I think) SyFy after series 1, when the show started airing in America (apparently written by someone who'd never actually seen it)

Asshole white guy - series regular!

Roman Polanski - white guy, has DESTINY on his side, probably going to end up being the messiah.

Why. What. Why. WTFUCKERY.

Bah. Also after seeing the fail that was "American characters" in The Last of the Time Lords, I have little faith that Rusty can get beyond that stereotype either.
