->Shadows of PíJem also features the rather infamous ď[[MarshmallowHell Archer in TíPolís boobs]]Ē moment. Itís a very cheap gag, and ranks with the decontamination chamber as an example of the show punching well below its weight. Itís juvenile, crass and awkward. Along the decontamination sequences, it diminishes and objectifies TíPol in a way that [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Seven of Nine]] was never diminished or objectified. It is frustrating that these are the sorts of ďtitillatingĒ sequences that were thought to be ďmodernisingĒ ''Star Trek'' instead of engaging with broader changes in television drama as a whole.

Compared with something like ''Series/TheSarahJaneAdventures'' which just got on with telling decent yarn and treating its characters intelligently, the two approaches couldnít be more different. The result is the ''SJA'' cast are instantly sophisticated whilst the ''Torchwood'' bunch look like a bunch of children [[ManChild playing at being adult]].
