Development between seasons
24 January 2008 | by mika-aka-xeyliSee all my reviews

I was happy with this episode and its continuity. Leaving things open-ended keeps the suspense there, so I'm hoping they bring back this story later in the series. I wonder if it would qualify for a Doctor Who crossover? I don't know what UK legalities are as far as crossovers and such...

In the first season, Ianto Jones was a quiet, reclusive character. Toward the end of season one, he slowly became more active with the other members of Torchwood. This second episode of the second season has Ianto throwing out jokes and talking more than the entire first series. It shows there was definite bonding between the Torchwood crew between series one and two (while Jack was "away").
