Storyline

Jack introduces Gwen to his good friend, the elderly Estelle who believes in faeries and thinks she has the photographs to prove it. Estelle likes Jack and tells Gwen that she and Jack's father had a love affair during World War II. Gwen quickly realizes that it was with Jack that she had the affair and sees a wonderful chemistry between the of them. Jack and Gwen soon come to believe that the faeries are not the benign beautiful creatures Estelle believes them to be and when a young girl, Jasmine Pierce, becomes the object of their attention, Torchwood sets out to protect her.

A previous reviewer didn't like this one because it was not alien based or time travel based. I disagree. One, even though Jack stated that the fairies were of earth, that didn't make them any less alien to ME (alien, as in foreign, something I'm not familiar with). And certainly there was talk about retrieving the Chosen Ones through Time. Who knows what myths and legends of our history and pre-history might be alien life-forms, or earth-based life-forms we haven't met and classified yet? I thought it was an intriguing thought. Revealing a little more of Jack's history was great. The only complaint I have is that BBC America is showing and RESHOWING Torchwood episodes to the point of nausea - today's showing was the 6th one I counted. I appreciate them showing them more than once - I missed Dr Who The Girl In The Fireplace first showing. But half a dozen times and I start to lose interest when I see the Torchwood logo until I check and see which one it is.

All around, though, good episode. I have one question though, who did the fairy voices? Besides Jasmine's altered one?
