Strange worlds
13 September 2009 | by (Belgrade,Serbia) – See all my reviews

After the team chases weevil into an empty wear house they find a dead body. Soon they discover a body of a young college student who suffered from diabetes, but according to his roommate was miraculously healed. After they received a knew information of another attack everyone is surprised that a woman survived. She explains that her her dog saved her by biting her attacker. Then Jack introduces the mysterious guest that will help them with their investigation. It is Dr.Martha Jones who has no regrets for not working with Doctor anymore, but instead she is a part of special unit. Before woman in hospital dies,she reveals that she was HIV positive but curred in the facility Pharm with drug reset that puts body in it's primal function. Martha shows the team the puncture in the eye of the victims which was lethal, and she explains that the victims are all of different age, occupation etc. Jack and Owen decided to visit the Pharm. There they meet Dr.Aaron Copley who receives them well but won't reveal anything. Then Martha volunteers to go undercover to the Pharm as a test subject for a knew drug. A very intense episode. Martha comes unexpectedly and immediately everyone likes her. The chat between her and Gwen was interesting, but her talk about Jack with Ianto was revealing. When Martha goes undercover Owen gives her cool gadgets of alien origin that even 007 would be envious. Strange enough at the end Owen becomes an dashing hero. Jack had full confidence in Martha, but of course she did need help and like in every episode so far at the end Torchwood team did come to her rescue. Only this time the action was very good and the plot was very thought out.
