The hospital Jack, Gwen and Beth are seen driving away from is the same location used in twice in Doctor Who, once thirty eight years before this episode of Torchwood and the next two years after. The first time it was used was for the 1970 serial Spearhead from Space and the second was the Eleventh Hour in 2010. See more »

When Beth stops the burglary, the Torchwood is intrigued. Soon they discover she is a part of a four team members cell of aliens that are send to destroy the Earth. When Jack tells Beth that she is really an alien, she can't reconcile with that and ask Jack can he make her human inside, but of course the answer is no. When she is frozen into cryogenic state she escapes, and runs to a hospital to say goodbye to a Mike,her boyfriend who loves her deeply. Beth was a really sad character, alien trapped in human looking body, that just wanted to marry and to have children. Her bond with Gwen was really touching right until the very end. The other aliens that lost their human memories were cold murders with a blade on wright arm that they can activate to appear and disappear. Jack was a real hero in this one, and even he joked on this subject. A very suspense packed episode. Will Torchwood make it in time to stop alien invasion ?
