The Torchwood teams meets an arriving aircraft at the airport but it's a flight like no other: it departed on December 18, 1953. For the pilot, Diane Holmes and two passengers, only about half an hour has gone by. Jack Harkness tells them they have traveled through a transcendental porthole, a hole in time and space. The bad news however is that having traveled to the future, they cannot return. Adapting to life in the 21st century is not simple as they get used to their new surroundings and the fact that almost everyone they once knew is now gone. Friendships are formed and not all will survive their new reality. Written by
