Following the success of our watchalong of Torchwood episode Captain Jack Harkness a few weeks ago, we’re headed back into the world of the hard-hitting Doctor Who spin-off for another communal rewatch – and this time, we’re sealing it with a kiss on Friday 17th April.


Yes, that’s right – following a fan vote the second episode we’ll all be pressing “play” on together at the same time is 2008 episode Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, written by Chris Chibnall and starring James Marsters as an old flame of Jack’s (John Barrowman) who causes trouble for the team in Cardiff.

Getting involved is simple. On Friday 17th April at 8:00pm BST (that’s 12:00pm PT and 3:00pm ET) fans around the world will press “play” on the episode simultaneously, watching along on BBC iPlayer, on DVD or another streaming service.

As the episode plays star John Barrowman will be streaming the rewatch live from his Instagram account and tweeting about it alongside other cast, and fans who want to join in the conversation can do so by using and following the hashtag #TorchwoodIsReady.
