Trivia

While Jack rounds off the number to an even 300 and makes the implication that all were shell-shocked and shot for cowardice, during WWI 306 British & Empire servicemen were executed, shot at dawn by firing squad, following courts martial for military offenses under the British Army Act: alleged acts of cowardice, desertion, sleeping at post, casting away arms and disobedience, between 1914 and 1918.

Goofs

When they thaw out Tommy, Owen revives him with a defibrillator. However, the monitor shows Tommy's heart rhythm as Asystole, IE flatline. Defibrillation is only effective for Ventricular Fibrillation or pulseless Ventricular Tachycardia, and does absolutely nothing for Asystole. See more »

User Reviews

A solid third episode of the second season
6 February 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"To the Last Man" is an above average episode of "Torchwood". With shades of "Sapphire and Steel", this time-warping, "historical" tale is strong on emotion and atmosphere.

This is a Tosh-driven episode and it allows Naoko Mori to reveal more about her character. When a first World War soldier is thawed out from Torchwood's cryogenic freezer, emotions run high and the team fight to save the world yet again.

8 out of 10. I've heard "Torchwood" described as the "18-30 of Sc-Fi". This is somewhat unfair. Although the show has its weaknesses, it delivers an alternative slice of British science fiction that is curiously retro despite its modern touches.
