Jack and Tosh investigate when there are reports of music coming out of nowhere in an abandoned dance hall. While in the building, a temporal shift puts them in back in 1941 but they soon realize can't get back to their own time, at least not without Tosh sending those in the present day the necessary equations to make it happen. While at the dance hall, Jack runs into someone he knows, an American RAF pilot by the name of Jack Harkness. In the present day Owen, Ianto and Gwen are working to get them back. Owen wants to open the rift and try to get Diane Holmes back as well, but opening the rift could destroy the city. The dance hall manager, Bilis Manger, seems to have little trouble going back and forth in time however. Written by

When Captain Jack first enters the dance hall he is wearing shiny black dress shoes rather than his normal Cat boots. Did he therefore have foreknowledge that this would help him fit in better as an off-duty officer in 1941? See more
Maybe this is a trap. He could be sucking us back through time one by one.

Get out of there, Gwen. That's an order.
I'm sorry, but who exactly put you in charge?
