Gwen Cooper is now a member of Torchwood as they investigate a meteor that has crashed on the outskirts of Cardiff. She inadvertently releases a gaseous life form that can take control of a human host. The host is a young woman, Carys, who uncontrollably becomes a sexual predator and any man she has sex with disintegrates. The Torchwood team find her easily but when she manages to escape, they know the lives of young men are at risk. Gwen meanwhile realizes she is the only one on the team with a social life while the others spend all of their time working. Written by garykmcd

Torchwood does sex
6 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's only the second episode, but Torchwood is pulling away from its roots with this story revolving around the most basic of human activities - pulling in a nightclub and having a one night stand. Admittedly, most of these don't end up with you dissolving into a small pile of red dust, but then that' nightclubs for you these days. If the plot sounds familiar then it's probably because it's suspiciously like that of the movie SPECIES. Sex-crazed alien on the loose and a small team have to track her down and stop her from wreaking her own particular brand of copulatory havoc. It's slick, it's smooth and it looks great, but it's a step down from the opening episode and only the two main characters of Gwen and Captain Jack get a look in.
