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
Did You Know?
On the door of the dance hall, there's a campaign poster for Saxon. This is the first official appearance of the "Mr Saxon" arc keyword for series 3 of Doctor Who
(2005); except for a brief glimpse in a preview trailer, the keyword had not been seen in "Doctor Who" prior to this episode. See more
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
You have to let Diane go. Like I did with Lisa.
Don't compare yourself to me. You're just a tea boy.
I'm much more than that. Jack needs me.
In your dreams, Ianto. In your sad wet dreams when you're his part-time shag, maybe. That rift took my lover and my captain. So if I die trying to beat it, then it will all be in the line of duty.
