In the countryside north of Cardiff, the Torchwood team investigates the disappearance of 17 people in the last few months. No bodies have been found and the police haven't a clue as to what may have happened to them. They set up camp in a field but when their SUV is stolen and then parked in a small village just a few miles away, they realize they're being lured into a trap. In the village, they find the remains of several inhabitants - stripped of flesh and organs - and one terrified survivor who promptly shoots Gwen with a shotgun. With Ianto and Tosh taken prisoner, they all soon come to realize that people are being hunted. Written by garykmcd

When Jack is shooting the villagers to rescue the rest of the team the very last shot shows a shotgun casing falling to the floor, even though his shotgun had run out of bullets and he had switched to his usual revolver. See more »

Human nature!
24 November 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was scary stuff - Im not a horror movie fan and this is about as scary as I can take which is good. Plus, we seem to have several love triangles going on now so Im losing track a bit, or is it a love hexagon? Anyway, the character development is getting there now so the strangeness of the interactions between the team members is easier to understand - as you get under their skin you realise that they don't form deep relationships easily for good reasons, which makes them disjointed and suspicious, and that is what keeps me watching - it gives a gritty edge to the way they interact. The location for this one was excellent - very "Hound of the Baskervilles" - I do think that Ianto needs some field training though - he is a bit inexperienced with a gun!
