And can Gwen and the team trust him? Written by Quicksand

When Rhys and Gwen are talking after getting ice cream, Rhys is talking and gesturing with his right hand, where the ice cream cone is, but when we see it from behind there is no cone in his hand. See more »

Quotes

Owen Harper: So the protein chains are regenerating despite the mutilation, so not only is it replenishing its own flesh, but it's increasing it, giving them a brand new meat supply.
Gwen Cooper: It will last them for years, then.
Toshiko Sato: If we understood how it worked, we could feed the whole world!
Ianto Jones: [deadpan] We could release a single!

No more lies for Gwen
30 March 2008 | by abs_is_backSee 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.
