Captain Jack Harkness: [talking about the alien] We're going to save it. Stabilize it, wait for the rift to open, and, fwooh, send it back.
Ianto Jones: ...And guess who'll have to look after it in the meantime?
[later, at the end of the meeting]
Captain Jack Harkness: We are doing this. That's an order.

No more lies for Gwen
30 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When Rhys' job and Gwen's job cross paths, the result is a messy fight and a brilliant story.

It's also a heartbreaking tale that shows some humans are a worse threat than some aliens. This is not the first time TW has told a story in which humans were the bad guys, but it is the best. And not everything is black and white - when Tosh finds out the circumstances of the alien, her first reaction is to use it for human benefit - her reasons may sound nobler, but are they that different from the criminals intentions? Where do we draw the line? What makes an alien friend or foe? And the final question of the episode - to retcon or not to retcon? Excellent story telling, excellent acting. Eve Miles and Kai Owen do a wonderful job of chewing the scenery without chewing it to bits. Their emotions are very real and not over-the-top.

Series two seems to be doing the impossible - being even better than series one.
