Trivia

When Jack and Owen are being arrested outside the nightclub Owen tries to get off by saying they are Torchwood, but Jack doesn't want Owen to run off and claims no knowledge to being Torchwood. To avoid suspicion Jack changes from his regular American accent to a Scotish one. This is the only time John Barrowman uses his native Scotish accent in the series. See more »

Goofs

Ianto announces that he's "getting no life signs" and the flat-line buzz is heard. When the camera flashes back to Owen's body, you see that he's not connected to any machines. Monitoring equipment needs to be connected to a body to show life signs. See more »

Quotes

Young Girl: [regarding the glove] If I told you not to use it, would you listen?
Captain Jack Harkness: Shouldn't you know the answer to that?
Young Girl: I do. That's the problem.

What's that I heard?
21 February 2008 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

"Melenkurion abatha! Duroc minas mill khabaal!" For anyone who hasn't read the Chronicles Of Thomas Covenant by Stephen R Donaldson, those are the words of power that Kevin Landwaster left in the First Ward for the Lords to use to rebuild the Land. The writer of this episode -- Matt Jones? -- for some reason ripped off this phrase, verbatim, and then tried to tell us it means something about, "walking the land hungry." Whatever. Aside from that, this episode was a mess. Owen is dead; no wait, he's up and around, but his body is changing into... No wait, he's better. Martha Jones has aged to 80. No wait, she's OK now. Weevils everywhere and no one notices them? The pacing was terrible, the continuity was confusing, and there was no real resolution. Send Captain Jack back to Dr Who; that's where he belongs. He rocked there.
