The Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood (BBC Two) seems to be on every other night. Perhaps there's a rift in time? Last night the alien-hunting team were spooked by visions of the past or, as Captain Jack Harkness helpfully put it, "an echo of a moment amplified by an alien device". Of course, you may already have seen this episode on Sunday on BBC Three, or perhaps will catch it tomorrow. I think I'm getting a headache. Watching television nowadays is like being in a temporal whirlpool that would freak out any Time Lord. I tuned into Spooks on BBC One on Monday (how many times can Adam Carter asks his fellows spies to trust him just one more time?) only to find that I'd already seen it the week before on BBC Four. There used to be a regular rhythm to watching a weekly series. Now it's all digital "push the red button" entreaties to watch extra content, characters' blogs at MySpace.com, mobile phone episodes, or buying DVD packages and video games containing new and additional plot information. As Captain Jack also declared: "We've got no idea what we're dealing with."
