Added DiffLines:

* LetUsNeverSpeakOfThisAgain: The events of Miracle Day have never been mentioned in DoctorWho proper, unlike other Torchwood events or characters. In fact, the events happened in the mid-season hiatus of Series 6 and there wasn't even a passing mention.

* FauxSymbolism: The last episode. [[HeroicSacrifice Sacrificing yourself]] to [[SaveTheWorld save humanity]]? Check. The blood of [[{{Jesus}} Jack]] being spilled is the key? Check. CrucifiedHeroShot? Check. [[BackFromTheDead Resurrection]]? Check. And, it's taken [[UpToEleven Up To Two]].

* TearJerker: When Gwen is forcefully (but well-intentionally) separated from Rhys and Anwen at Heathrow Airport.
** The look on Jack's face when Esther mentions her guilt over Rex's accident. You can practically ''see'' the faces of [[spoiler: Ianto, Tosh, Owen, Suzie, and Steven]] flash before his eyes.
** In the third episode, when Gwen and Jack are talking over the phone and she addresses the fact that if the Miracle had happened sooner, [[spoiler: Ianto]] would still be alive. Jack's response? To close his eyes and murmur, "I wish he were here now."
** The utter longing in Jack's voice and face when he [[spoiler: sits at Angelo's deathbed and talks about Ianto: "You would've liked him...You would've been jealous."]]
** [[spoiler:Watching Vera get immolated. Yeesh.]]
** [[spoiler:Watching Gwen and her mum saying goodbye to Gwen's father after he is found hiding.]]
** [[spoiler: Esther's death, and Rex being forced to let her die in order to save the world.]]
** [[spoiler: A tearful Rhys comforting Geraint as he wakes up from his coma and finally dies. Sadly, he doesn't die in the company of his wife or daughter.]]
** [[spoiler: While Rhys is sitting with Geraint in his last moments, Andy is doing the same for a teenaged "Jane Doe." A nurse had pointed out that Geraint was one of the lucky ones, as he still had family that cared for him.]]

* {{Padding}}: You can really tell at times that they didn't quite have enough story for ten episodes. In particular, you could lose most of episode 3 with no problems.

* {{Padding}}: You can really tell at times that they didn't quite have enough story for ten episodes. The series was originally conceived as a 5 or 6 episodes long miniseries like ''Children of Earth'', but the American Networks lobbied for 13-episodes so that the series can fill out the entire summer, in the end, ten episodes was settled on as a compromise. In particular, you could lose most of episode 3 with no problems.

* SeasonalRot: Debatable but widely considered this for Torchwood, with dropping ratings and more mixed reviews then "Children of Earth".
