Did You Know?


In the Hothouse scene, when we first see Jack and Ianto, Ianto's right hand is on Jack's left shoulder. After cutting away and then quickly shifting back, Ianto's right arm is now completely trapped against his body by Jack holding him in an embrace with his left arm. See more »

He looked into a hart of a dark star
21 September 2009 | by (Belgrade,Serbia) – See all my reviews

Jonah Bevan a fifteen year old, is late coming home. While he crosses the bridge he sees his mother in the distance standing at the window of their apartment and he receives the text message from her on his mobile. He answers, but then a strange light appears and Jonah looks in terror. All that is left of Jonah when light goes away is his mobile. Seven mounts later at the same bridge Gwen and Andy discuss the case. Gwen is angry because he missed her wedding on purpose, but Andy denies it. Then Gwen finds out that Andy is still not over her, aldo the relationship ended three years ago. Andy tries to interest Gwen to investigate Jonas disappearance, and he has a clue. About forty five minutes after Jonah disappeared, Jack was seen arriving at the bridge. When Gwen asked him about it Jack said it was coincidence. Immediately after I have seen the opening scene I thought that light must have been connected with the rift or that somehow the rift itself had taken Jonah. However the rest of the story was hard to guess. The scene where Gwen accidentally catches Jack and Ianto together was a huge surprise, but a little was said so far about Jack and Ianto and their relationship, and the scene did not explain nothing new. The story about Jonah and his mother Nikki was specially moving. The bond between mother and child was well portrayed. Rhys was very supportive about Gwens work in Torchwood which was unusual. Tosh was really there to help Gwen investigate. Owen was really out in this one. I think he was only in one scene when, he was on Jacks side and against Gwen. As the few episodes before this one was very emotional. To answer why Torchwood have not erased Nikkies memory after she found out what happened to Jonah, the only thing I can say is that she wanted to know so badly and sometimes the truth is hard to erase. Jack in the end came out as a humanitarian, the savior and protector of human rase. I liked the scene where he and Gwen just talked at the cliff and the sea was in the distance. He looked like the wisest man on earth and Gwen like his apprentice. I really liked Andy, he looked like the perfect guy for Gwen but...
