Soon after, Owen has a similar experience only this time he is under a bridge in the early 1960s where a young woman is raped and murdered. They trace both the boy and the murderer and learn that the boy was well taken care of. As for the murderer, the case remains unsolved, something that outrages Owen. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Toshiko is first describing the information she found in Ed Morgan's medical records, she says he is claustrophobic, or afraid of enclosed spaces. This is at odds with his apparent unwillingness to leave his home. Later, when she is reading his medical records on screen, he is listed as being agoraphobic, or afraid of open spaces, a diagnosis much more consistent with his behavior. See more »

Quotes

Captain Jack Harkness: For the case to be reopened, you need new evidence or a new witness.
Owen Harper: I saw it happen.
Captain Jack Harkness: No, you didn't. You weren't there! You saw the echo of a moment amplified by alien technology. So just tell me how that'll play in court.
