Storyline

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 garykmcd

RE; Incidental music
12 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The piano music playing on the radio was Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata" First Movement. Beautiful, timeless, and just right for the scene. (No, I didn't know that info until about 20 minutes ago-- I got as far as that scene, and had heard that piece before, came here to IMDb hoping to find out what it was. 15 minutes of Googling and various message boards brought me the answer.... thanx also to YouTube for verification!)

I'm watching the show for the first time, 1st season on DVD... it completely rocks!

I'm off to watch the rest of the epi now... and the rest of the season...
