    The Third Guy was absent for this week's podcast, and he missed a heap of news with the release of not only the Series 4 trailer and various teasers on the interwebs but an honest to goodness announcement of April 5th as the airdate of the Series 4 premiere. Warren and Steven tried to hold down the fort through jocularity and sarcasm, but their constant threats involving the Gun of Spite (and later, the Cannon of Hatred) because of the Third Guy's impending trip to Paris and to a studio audience to view David Tennant in person meant an air of amusing menace permeated the proceedings.

Although everyone else believes he is fine, Owen knows that he\nis not. He is seen on top of an apartment building with a suicidal\nwoman, asking her if she is ready to jump.\n\n\n\n\nAfter showing the woman his gunshot wound and revealing he is\nalready dead, Owen begins to tell her about the days since his death,\nshown as a series of flashbacks. Firstly, Captain Jack relieves Owen of\nhis duties as a way of monitoring his condition and keeping him safe.\nOwen is angry that Martha Jones\nis taking his position as head medic, and further disheartened when\nJack gives him Ianto\'s old job of making the coffee. He feels useless,\nconscious that he has always been alone while each one of the Torchwood\nteam has or has had someone in their life (Ianto and Jack, Gwen and\nRhys, Martha and her boyfriend, Tosh and Tommy). Ianto challanges him\nas to whether he is really going to let this problem beat him, after\nall that he\'s been through.\n\n\n\n\nAfter Martha concludes from her tests that Owen is 100% human yet\nwill not age, the team meets to discuss a series of unusual energy\nspikes coming from the estate of a reclusive collector of alien\nartifacts, Henry Parker. Parker hasn\'t been seen since 1986, leading\nthe team to wonder what he has inside his house. They devise a plan to\nfind out the origin of the energy spikes, excluding any involvement\nfrom Owen.\n\n\n\n\nBack on the roof, Owen recounts suicide statistics to the woman, who\nasks him who he actually is. Owen replies that he is a \'bloody\nbrilliant doctor\', which takes us back to the autopsy room, where he is\nconversing with Martha. As he carelessly toys with a scalpel, Martha\ntries to reassure him that she does not want his job. While talking,\nshe realizes that he has sliced his hand open with the scalpel - a\nwound he can\'t feel, and that won\'t heal. Owen takes over the\nstitching, realizing he will need to get used to doing it himself.\n\n\n\n\nAs we come back to the roof, the woman chastises Owen for refusing\nhelp, and he asks her if her boyfriend dumped her because she was so\nannoying. In flashback, the effectively unemployed Owen heads home,\nwhere he sits around aimlessly and then clears out his fridge - he no\nlonger needs food or drink. Tosh arrives and starts to tell him about\nher morning, as Owen zones out completely. On the roof, the woman\nstates that Owen and Tosh sound like an old married couple. She tells\nhim about how her husband died, also glimpsed in flashbacks, in a car\naccident an hour after they were married. She asks Owen if things get\nbetter when you die, and we come back to Owen\'s apartment, where he is\nstill zoned out. He asks Tosh why she is there, and becomes angry when\nshe says she wants to help, since in reality she can\'t. He directs his\nanger at Tosh, accusing her of wanting someone as screwed up as himself\n- which he has finally become.\n\n\n\n\nAfter breaking his finger to show Tosh how \'broken\' he is, Owen\ntries to drown himself, but fails because despite his ability to talk,\nhe no longer needs to breathe. At the Hub, the team are discussing the\nsecurity heat-sensors used at Parker\'s estate, making it virtually\nimpossible for them to gain access. When Owen points out that he has no\nbody heat, Jack agrees to let him take on the mission. Tosh returns\nOwen\'s apartment keys and carries on with the task at hand.\n\n\n\n\nThe woman on the roof can\'t get over why Tosh wasn\'t angry at him\nand Owen explains that it was Tosh\'s way: always professional. The\nwoman becomes upset and Owen rushes her to the edge, where she pulls\nback from jumping. She asks him how he got from where he was to the\nroof...\n\n\n\n\nAt the estate, Martha tells Owen not to engage in any physical\ncombat as he will not recover. After breaking security both on the\noutside and inside the house, Owen reaches Parker who is an old man\nlinked up to many ventilators and medical machines. The man reveals\nthat he has suffered a failed bypass and three heart attacks, but is\nbeing kept alive by a glowing object he calls \'the Pulse\'. Owen tells\nhim that the object isn\'t doing anything to keep him alive; that it is\nactually hope that is doing the job. Owen promises to help Parker face\nhis fear of death, but the man soon suffers another heart attack.\nUnable to draw breath himself, Owen is unable to perform the kiss of life, and Parker dies.\n\n\n\n\nTosh tells Owen through the earpiece that \'The Pulse\' is going to\nexplode and there\'s nothing they can do about it. Owen holds the\nobject, telling the team he\'s going to try to absorb it. They all\nprotest, and Owen begins to say his goodbyes, praising Martha as an\nideal replacement, and apologising to Tosh for his behavior. Tosh says\nshe loves him and as the object begins to glow ever so brightly, Owen\nhugs it.\n\n\n\n\nOn the roof, the woman looks at Owen incredulously, asking what had\nhappened next. Owen says that life is sometimes not as bad as we think,\nand retrieves \'The Pulse\' from his backpack. The team had falsely\nidentified it as a bomb, whereas in fact it was a reply to one of\nhumanity\'s satellites, launched in the 1970\'s, to make contact with\nalien life. The object produces a beautiful light and Owen answers the\nwoman\'s earlier question: that it does get better.\n\n\n\n\nIn flashback, after the team say their goodbyes to the departing\nMartha, Tosh makes Owen promise to open up to her in future; to tell\nher when he\'s feeling bad about anything. He agrees, admitting that\nhe\'s scared of the darkness, and of becoming trapped. We see him\nwalking along a footpath and pick up a photo of the woman on the roof,\nwhich had fallen from a building above. This is what had brought him to\nher: not to jump himself, but to try and save her.\n\n\n\n\nIn the present, Owen tells the woman that if she can really see that\nthere is nothing for her, then she should jump; but that if she can see\neven a glimmer of hope then it must be worth taking a chance. She tells\nhim that her name is Maggie, and Owen holds her hand as they watch the\nlightshow.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast\nCaptain Jack Harkness -- John BarrowmanGwen Cooper -- Eve MylesOwen Harper -- Burn GormanToshiko Sato -- Naoko MoriIanto Jones -- Gareth David-LloydMartha Jones -- Freema AgyemanHenry Parker -- Richard BriersMaggie Hopley -- Christine BottomleyPhillip Farrington -- Louis Decosta JohnsonTaylor -- Brett AllenWebb -- Gil KolirinWeevil -- Paul Kasey (uncredited)\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nCast notes\nAlthough credited, Kai Owen does not appear as Gwen\'s fiance Rhys Williams.Richard Briers previously played the Chief Caretaker in the Seventh Doctor serial Paradise Towers.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nContinuity\nOne of Henry Parker\'s purchases was a Dogon Eye, an item last seen in "Random Shoes". The official website states that he has recently purchased a Cyberman arm and chest unit.In the opening scene, archive footage of Louise Delamere as Diane Holmes, Owen\'s first series love interest, is shown. Also in the opening montage, clips from episodes such as "Everything Changes", "Ghost Machine", "Out of Time" and "Meat" can be glimpsed.This is the second episode in which Owen is relieved of his duties. He was previously dismissed by Jack after he opened the rift in "End of Days".\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n[edit] Outside references\nOwen says that Torchwood filed Henry Parker as "Mostly Harmless," a reference to the book by the same name by Douglas Adams, who used to write for Doctor Who. "Mostly Harmless" was the revised entry for planet Earth in the Hitchhiker\'s Guide to the Galaxy, also written by Adams. The original entry for Earth was "harmless".Owen criticises Ianto for liking Tintin. Owen thinks Tintin is weird, and reckons "he was shagging the dog" (his pet Snowy). Later in the episode, Owen is given a Tintin T-shirt. Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat is currently writing a screenplay for a forthcoming Tintin movie.In reference to his reclusiveness, Parker is stated to be "a bit Howard Hughes".The symptoms of Owen\'s death (numbness, inability to heal) have similarities to leprosy, as suffered by the protagonist of Stephen R Donaldson\'s The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. The alien words spoken by Owen in the "Dead Man Walking" (melenkurion, abatha, duroc, minas, mill and khabaal) were also taken from Donaldson\'s novels.The song playing in Owen\'s apartment is "Atlas" by Battles.\n\n\n\nSomething Borrowed (Torchwood)\n\t\t\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\t\n\t\t\t\n\n2.9 -\xc2\xa0"Something Borrowed"\n\n\nTorchwood episode\n\n\n\nThe female Nostrovite takes the shape of Rhys\'s mother and holds Gwen\'s mother hostage.\n\n\nWriter\nPhil Ford\n\n\nDirector\nAshley Way\n\n\nScript\xc2\xa0editor\nGary Russell\n\n\nProducer\nRichard Stokes\nChris Chibnall (co-producer)\n\n\nExecutive producer(s)\nRussell T.

It was broadcast by BBC Three on 5 March 2008 and repeated on BBC Two one week later.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n//<![CDATA[\n if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = "show"; var tocHideText = "hide"; showTocToggle(); } \n//]]>\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Plot\nJust hours before her wedding night, Gwen chases down a shape-shifting\nalien, eventually engaging him in a fight wherein he bites her arm\nbefore he is killed by Jack. The next morning they discover that the\nalien had transferred its eggs into Gwen, which has matured inside her\nbody to the point where she now appears pregnant. Gwen and Rhys, at the\ninsistence of Gwen, decide to have their wedding anyway, with Gwen\'s\ncondition being explained away as her being pregnant with Rhys\'s child,\nas they do not want to have to explain about aliens or Torchwood.\n\n\n\n\nDuring an autopsy of the alien creature, the team discover that it\nis a Nostrovite, a race of carnivourous shape shifters who hunt in\npairs and mate for life. After fertilisation, the female passes the\neggs on to the male, who then transfers them to a host to act as an\nincubator until the time is right. The female then tracks the host\ndown, and when the egg is ready to hatch she tears the host apart to\nfree the offspring. They realise that the mother must still be out\nthere and that they need to hurry as it is out looking for Gwen.\n\n\n\n\nThe female Nostrovite tracks Gwen to the hotel where she is having\nher wedding. Her presence is soon detected, at which point the team\ntries to catch her while at the same time minimalise any information\nleaking out to the public. They decide to use the singularity scalpel\nto destroy the eggs incubating within Gwen. Rhys and Gwen flee to the\nstable, where Rhys removes the egg using the scalpel, which infuriates\nthe female Nostrovite that followed them. She attacks Rhys who fends\nher off with a chainsaw, but it stalls. At that moment, Jack enters and\nkills the creature.\n\n\n\n\nRhys and Gwen\'s wedding resumes, and the couple are successfully\nwed. At the reception, and just before Rhys and Gwen leave for their\nhoneymoon, they realise that Jack has retconned the entire wedding\nparty to wipe their memories of the Nostrovite. Jack offers the couple\nthe amnesia pills, and Gwen declines stating that there\'d be no secrets\nin their marriage. They say their goodbyes and leave whilst Jack and\nthe others proceed to clean up. Alone at the Hub, Jack retrieves an old\ntin box, containing old pictures from his past. He looks at them,\nreminiscing, and comes across a particular one of him and his bride at\nhis own wedding.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast\nCaptain Jack Harkness -- John BarrowmanGwen Cooper -- Eve MylesOwen Harper -- Burn GormanToshiko Sato -- Naoko MoriIanto Jones -- Gareth David-LloydRhys Williams -- Kai OwenBrenda Williams -- Nerys HughesMary Cooper -- Sharon MorganGeraint Cooper -- William ThomasBarry Williams -- Robin GriffithCarrie -- Collette BrownMegan -- Danielle HenryTrina -- Ceri Ann GregoryBanana Boat -- Jonathan Lewis OwenMervyn -- Morgan HopkinsRegistrar -- Valerie MurrayShop Assistant -- Pethrow Gooden\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast notes\nNerys Hughes previously appeared in the Fifth Doctor serial Kinda and the Eighth Doctor audio drama Phobos.William Thomas was the first actor to appear in both the classic and new series of Doctor Who, first in the Seventh Doctor serial Remembrance of the Daleks and then the Ninth Doctor episode "Boom Town". This makes him the first actor to appear in the classic series, the new series and Torchwood.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nContinuity\nAn upgraded version of the singularity scalpel from "Reset" is used to remove the alien egg from Gwen.\n\n\n\n\nOn the Torchwood website Jack receives an email from Martha Jones after the events in "A Day in the Death"\nsaying she is sorry for not going to Gwen\'s wedding implying she was\ninvited to the wedding. The canonicity of the email is unclear.\n\n\n\n

    With much news to discuss and an unwelcome loss of sleep due to Daylight Savings Time for the North American portion of the RFS crew, the grump factor was pretty high in this episode, making for the delightful sniping and back and forth beloved by...well, by the hosts, at any rate. Hopefully our wonderful audience found our snarky comments as amusing as we did. We also found time to "meh" it up about the latest Torchwood between the baleful glances and acidic insults.

    In this week's episode the guys look at the 3 part Torchwood episodes featuring Martha Jones fresh from Doctor Who. There is also talk on Primeval season two, David Gemmell's last ever book and increasing number of times Lex is shot in Smallville. We also find out what dave's like to do on a Friday night when he's had to much to drink (here's a clue it's boring).

    In our main feature we chat to the infamous comic gossip columnist Rich Johnston as he takes us on a tour of his local supermarket. We ask such thorny questions as...

    What stories which he feels have had the most impact on the comic world?

    What do creators and publishers really think of him?

    Who really cannot stand to be in the same room with him?

    What is his relationship with Bob 'Texan Comedy' Legend Wayne VP of DC?

    The Five Doctors was a special feature-length episode of the British science fiction television series Doctor Who, produced in celebration of the programme\'s twentieth anniversary. It aired in the United Kingdom on November 25, 1983, although it had its world premiere in the United States, on the Chicago PBS station WTTW-TV and various other PBS affiliates on November 23, the anniversary date.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nn\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n//&amp;amp;amp;amp;lt;![CDATA[\n if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = &amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;show&amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;; var tocHideText = &amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;hide&amp;amp;amp;amp;quot;; showTocToggle(); } \n//]]&amp;amp;amp;amp;gt;\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Synopsis\nSomeone is plucking all the incarnations of the Doctor out of time, and placing them in the Death Zone on Gallifrey\nwhere they will meet old friends and enemies and play out the deadly\nGame of Rassilon, for the ultimate prize. But to lose is to win, and he\nwho wins shall lose...\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nPlot\nThe Fifth Doctor, Tegan and Turlough\nare taking a break on the Eye of Orion, one of the most tranquil spots\nin the universe, when the Fifth Doctor suddenly collapses. Tegan and\nTurlough bring the Fifth Doctor back into the TARDIS,\nwhere they discover to their distress that he is literally fading away.\nThe Fifth Doctor manages to set the TARDIS controls for a destination\nand the ship dematerializes.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIn a hidden chamber, a dark figure is manipulating the controls of a time scoop and kidnapping the Doctor\'s previous incarnations out of the time stream along with some of his former companions. The First Doctor is taken while he is walking in a rose garden, the Second Doctor and Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart from a UNIT reunion and the Third Doctor while he is out driving his roadster, Bessie. Also taken out of time are Sarah Jane Smith and the Doctor\'s granddaughter Susan Foreman. The Fourth Doctor and Romana are taken while punting along the River Cam,\nbut whoever is doing this is frustrated as the two are trapped in the\ntime vortex by a time eddy and unable to rematerialize. All of them,\nsave the Fourth Doctor and Romana, are deposited on a desolate, rocky\nlandscape -- the Death Zone on Gallifrey.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nMeanwhile, in the Capitol on Gallifrey, the High Council of Time Lords, headed by Lord President Borusa and consisting of Chancellor Flavia and the Castellan, watches in concern. The Eye of Harmony\nis being drained by whoever is taking the Doctor out of time,\nendangering all of Gallifrey. Despite Borusa\'s misgivings, the High\nCouncil has unanimously voted to call in the Master\nto assist by going into the Death Zone to help the Doctors. Offered a\npardon and a new cycle of regenerations, the Master accepts, and is\ngiven a copy of the Seal of the High Council by the Castellan to prove\nhis bona fides, and a matter transmitter (transmat) recall device. He\nis then teleported via transmat to the Death Zone.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIn the Zone, the Doctors face various dangers. The First Doctor and Susan are pursued by a Dalek\nthrough a hall of mirrors, finally escaping when they push the Dalek\ninto a dead end, where the discharge of its energy weapon ricochets\nback and destroys it. The Second Doctor and the Brigadier escape from a\nsquad of Cybermen,\nand the Third Doctor rescues Sarah from her fall down an embankment.\nSarah is mildly confused, as she had seen the Third Doctor regenerate\ninto the Fourth (Planet of the Spiders),\nbut is glad to see the Doctor she once knew. The Second and Third\nDoctors explain to their companions that in Gallifrey\'s past, known as\nthe Dark Time, the Time Lords misused their powers. A device called the\nTime Scoop was used to pluck beings out of their times and place them\nin the Death Zone, where they would fight each other in a sort of\ngladiatorial game. The Doctors\' goal now is to reach the Dark Tower,\nwhere the Time Lord founder Rassilon is entombed, although there is some doubt as to whether Rassilon is actually dead.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Master meets and tries unsuccessfully to convince the Third\nDoctor that he is there to help. He is then forced to flee when\nthunderbolts fall from the sky. The Third Doctor only sees this as\nconfirmation that this is all a plot of the Master\'s. The First Doctor\nand Susan find the TARDIS and the presence of the First Doctor seems to\nstabilize the Fifth for the moment. Together, they scan the tower and\nfind three entrances -- one at the apex of the tower, the main gate at\nthe base, and one underground, but a force field prevents the TARDIS\'s\nentry. The Fifth Doctor takes Tegan and Susan to go to the main gate,\nbut encounters the Master, who has no better luck convincing the Fifth\nDoctor than he did the Third. At that moment, the two are surrounded by\nCybermen, and when they try to run away, the Master is knocked out by a\ncybergun blast. The Fifth Doctor finds the Master\'s recall device on\nhis unconscious body, and transmats himself to the Capitol. The Master,\nconfronted by the Cybermen, offers himself as a guide to the Tower.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIn the Capitol, the Doctor is informed of the situation by the High\nCouncil. The Doctor realizes not only that he has done the Master an\ninjustice, but also that they were found too easily by the Cybermen. He\nopens the recall device and finds a homing beacon inside. The\nCastellan, who gave the Master the device, is arrested and his quarters\nordered to be searched. There is found a box containing the Black\nScrolls of Rassilon -- forbidden knowledge from the Dark Time. Borusa\ndestroys the scrolls before anyone can examine them and orders the\nCastellan taken to the mind probe for interrogation. However, as the\nCastellan is escorted outside, there is a shot. The Doctor rushes out\nto find the Castellan dead, and the Captain of the guard reporting that\nhe was shot while trying to escape. The Doctor voices his concerns to\nChancellor Flavia: the Castellan was stubborn, but not a traitor. There\nis more to this than meets the eye.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Second Doctor and the Brigadier are exploring a series of caves when they encounter a Yeti left over from the games. Taking refuge in an alcove, the Doctor tries to chase the Yeti off with a firework,\nsucceeding only in maddening it, and causing it to collapse the\nentrance to the alcove. However, the Doctor detects a breeze from\nfurther back and discovers the underground entrance to the Tower.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nOn the surface, the Third Doctor and Sarah come across a Raston Warrior Robot,\naccording to the Doctor the most perfect killing machine ever devised.\nAble to move with blinding speed and fire bolts of metal at its\ntargets, it detects its victims by motion. The Doctor and Sarah are\nunable to move without attracting the robot\'s attention, but luck is on\ntheir side when a squad of Cybermen come over the ridge and are rapidly\neliminated by the robot. Taking advantage of the distraction, the\nDoctor and Sarah run past the robot\'s position, taking some rope and\nspare bolts from the robot\'s cave. Reaching a cliff face just above the\nTower, the Doctor uses the rope and bolts to form a grappling hook, and\nhe and Sarah abseil across to the top of the Tower.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nTegan and Susan have told the First Doctor what happened to the\nFifth Doctor. The First Doctor decides to head for the main gate\nhimself, with Tegan insisting on accompanying him. Opening the main\ngate through the means of a keypad hidden under a bell, they find a\nchessboard floor pattern blocking their way. The First Doctor\ndetermines that the chessboard is a trap -- electrical bolts will\ndestroy anyone attempting to cross unless they find the safe path. The\nMaster appears at this point, warning them that the Cybermen are close\nbehind. While the Doctor and Tegan hide, the Master lures the Cybermen\nonto the chessboard where they are killed. The Master tells the Doctor,\n"It\'s as easy as pie", then blithely steps across the board and moves\ninto the Tower. The Doctor realizes that the Master means the Greek\nletter pi,\nand that the safe path is calculated by means of the mathematical\nconstant. He and Tegan make their way across the trap. In the Zone, the\nTARDIS is being surrounded by Cybermen who start to assemble a bomb to\nblow it up. Inside, Turlough and Susan watch helplessly.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Second and Third Doctors encounter more obstacles while moving\nseparately through the Tower, with the mind of Rassilon exuding an\nintensifying feeling of fear. They also encounter what appear to be\ntheir previous companions: the Third meeting Captain Mike Yates and Liz Shaw; the Second meeting Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Heriot.\nThe Doctors soon realize that the \'companions\' are just phantoms\ndesigned to impede their progress through the Tower, and the spectres\nvanish with a scream. Finally, all three Doctors reach the tomb where\nRassilon\'s casket lies. While the Brigadier, Sarah, and Tegan get\nre-acquainted, the three Doctors try to translate an inscription\nwritten in Ancient Gallifreyan on a pedestal near a control panel.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Fifth Doctor finds that Borusa has vanished from the Council\nchamber, but the guards insist that the President could not have gotten\nby them at the only entrance. The transmat is out of power, so the\nDoctor deduces that there must be a secret door. He finds it hidden\nbehind a painting of Rassilon playing the harp. The key to opening the\ndoor is a series of notes played on the actual harp standing before the\npainting -- notes indicated by the sheet music in the painting itself.\nThe Doctor enters the secret chamber, finding the dark figure that had\ntaken his other selves out of time: Borusa. The Lord President is not\nsatisfied with ruling Gallifrey for his lifetimes -- he wants to be\nPresident Eternal. Borusa has determined that Rassilon discovered the\nsecret of immortality, and he means to claim it, sending the Doctors\ninto the Zone to clear the way for him. Using the Coronet of Rassilon,\nBorusa overwhelms the Fifth Doctor\'s will, thus forcing the latter to\nobey his commands.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIn the tomb, the Doctors have deciphered the inscription: Rassilon\nhad discovered immortality and will share it with whomever overcomes\nthe obstacles to the tomb and takes the ring from his body. However,\none line troubles the First Doctor: "To lose is to win and he who wins\nshall lose." The Master steps out of the shadows to claim immortality\nfor himself, yet is jumped from behind by the Brigadier and tied up by\nSarah and Tegan. The Third Doctor fixes the control panel by reversing the polarity of the neutron flow, allowing the TARDIS to transport itself to the tomb (just seconds before the Cybermen\'s bomb detonates).\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Second Doctor contacts the Capitol and the Fifth Doctor answers,\nstill under Borusa\'s control. He tells his other selves to await their\narrival. He and Borusa transmat over to the tomb. Borusa paralyzes the\nDoctors\' companions with a command and tries to control the minds of\nthe Doctors as well, but fails as all four Doctors combine their wills\nagainst him. However, a booming voice echoes through the chamber -- the\nvoice of Rassilon, demanding to know who disturbs him. Borusa steps\nforward to claim immortality and while the other Doctors protest, the\nFirst Doctor holds the others back and says to the projection of\nRassilon that Borusa deserves the prize. Borusa takes the ring from the\nbody and puts it on. He finds himself paralyzed, then transformed into\none of several stone faces carved into the side of the casket. Rassilon\nsends the Master back to his own time, then frees the Fourth Doctor\nfrom the time vortex and returns to eternal rest. The First Doctor\nsmugly tells the Fifth that he finally understood the proverb. The\n\'prize\' was yet another trap -- a means for Rassilon to eliminate\nwhoever sought immortality.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Doctors and the companions say their good-byes to each other and\nre-enter the TARDIS save for the Fifth Doctor, Tegan, and Turlough. As\nthose three watch, the others are transported back to their proper\ntimes. Chancellor Flavia arrives with guards and tells the Doctor that\nwith Borusa\'s disappearance, the Council has appointed the Doctor as\nPresident. The Doctor appears reluctant, but Flavia tells him he cannot\nrefuse an order of the Council or it will attract the severest\npenalties. The Doctor orders Flavia back to the Capitol, saying that he\nwill travel there in his TARDIS and that she has full powers until his\nreturn. Once in the TARDIS, though, he reveals to Tegan and Turlough\nthat he has no intention of returning. Tegan asks if the Doctor really\nintends to go on the run from his own people in a rickety old TARDIS.\nThe Doctor replies, smiling, "Why not? After all, that\'s how it all\nstarted."\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast\nThe Doctor -- Peter Davison, Jon Pertwee, Patrick Troughton, Richard Hurndall, Tom Baker, William HartnellTegan -- Janet FieldingTurlough -- Mark StricksonSarah Jane Smith -- Elisabeth SladenSusan -- Carole Ann FordThe Brigadier -- Nicholas CourtneyThe Master -- Anthony AinleyBorusa -- Philip LathamRomana -- Lalla WardChancellor Flavia -- Dinah SheridanThe Castellan -- Paul JerrichoCyber Leader -- David BanksCyber Lieutenant -- Mark HardyRassilon -- Richard MathewsJamie -- Frazer HinesZoe -- Wendy PadburyColonel Crichton -- David SavileLiz Shaw -- Caroline JohnCaptain Yates -- Richard FranklinVoice of K9 -- John LeesonDalek Voice -- Roy SkeltonDalek Operator -- John Scott MartinSergeant -- Ray FloatRaston Robot -- Keith HodiakCommander -- Stuart BlakeTechnician -- Stephen MeredithGuard -- John TallentsCyber Scout -- William Kenton\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast notes\nThe role of the First Doctor was played by Richard Hurndall, as\nWilliam Hartnell, who originally played the role, died in 1975. William\nHartnell does make an appearance, however, in a pre-titles sequence\ntaken from the end of The Dalek Invasion of Earth.Tom Baker declined to reprise his role as the Fourth Doctor,\nas he did not want to reappear in the series so recently after his\ndeparture (a decision he would later say that he regretted); so his\nappearance in the story was pieced together from footage filmed for the\nunaired serial Shada.The scene with Jamie and Zoe was originally written with Zoe and Victoria Waterfield\nin mind. The Doctor would have realised the truth when Victoria called\nLethbridge-Stewart "Brigadier", since Victoria had only met the\nBrigadier when he was a Colonel in The Web of Fear. However, Deborah Watling\nwas unable to make the filming dates. Frazer Hines was able to free\nhimself up for a day\'s shooting, so Jamie was written in instead.In the original drafts of the script, the Doctor/companion\ncombinations were very different. Before Tom Baker decided not to\nappear, the Fourth Doctor would have been paired with Sarah, the Third\nDoctor with the Brigadier and the Second Doctor with Jamie.[1]\nWhen Baker declined to appear and Frazer Hines was unable to meet the\nproduction dates due to other commitments, the scripts had to be\naltered. However, Hines was able to step in later for a cameo\nappearance, as noted above.John Levene was asked to appear as Sergeant Benton\nbut objected to the way in which the character interacted with the\nSecond Doctor and declined to participate. The scene was filmed with an\nunnamed sergeant in place of Benton.[2]\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nContinuity\nThis is only the second time in the series\' history that there was a pre-credits sequence. Castrovalva (1982) was the first such story. Subsequently, Time and the Rani (1987) and Remembrance of the Daleks\n(1988) also featured pre-credits teasers. The pre-credits sequence\nbecame a regular occurrence starting with the 2005 series episode The End of the World.This serial also featured the debut of the new TARDIS console and\nroom, the first redesign since 1977. This console would remain until\nthe end of series production in 1989.This serial ended fan speculation as to whether or not Patrick Troughton\nand Jon Pertwee\'s Doctors were regenerations or merely "changes of\nappearance". It also explicitly indicated in dialogue that the Davison\nincarnation of the Doctor was in fact the fifth, officially\ncontradicting the Morbius Doctors speculation that had circulated since the The Brain of Morbius serial that there had been additional incarnations of the Doctor prior to Hartnell.When asked by the Third Doctor as to whether he has regenerated\nagain, the Master says, "Not exactly", referencing his stealing of\nTremas\'s body as seen in the Fourth Doctor story The Keeper of Traken (1981).This is the first time it is suggested that a new cycle of\nregenerations can be bestowed on a person (in this case the Master),\nimplying that it could be possible to circumvent the\ntwelve-regeneration limit established in The Deadly Assassin.\nHowever, the Master is occupying a non-Time Lord body, so whether this\ncan be applied to a Time Lord who has already reached his thirteenth\nincarnation is unclear. Years later, however, the episode "Utopia" shows the Master regenerating and in the following episode "The Sound of Drums" indicates that he had been "resurrected" (the Master\'s own word, left unexplained) by the Time Lords to fight in the Time War, suggesting a new regeneration cycle was indeed bestowed upon him.Three incarnations of Borusa previously appeared in The Deadly Assassin, The Invasion of Time and Arc of Infinity.Dinah Sheridan makes a guest appearance as Flavia. The character\nhas subsequently been mentioned in spin-off fiction as becoming\nPresident of the High Council and then subsequently removed from office\ndue to a scandal (as detailed in the New Adventures novel, Happy Endings). In the new series, a musical cue composed by Murray Gold\nwith ethereal sounding vocals is jokingly referred to as "Flavia\'s\nTheme" by the production team, who say it is Flavia\'s voice singing out\nfrom the time vortex.One of the jewels from the Coronet of Rassilion would later play an important part in the Big Finish Productions Bernice Summerfield adventure The Crystal of Cantus.No explanation is given for companion Kamelion\'s absence from this story.The First Doctor does not quite recognise the Master ("Do I know\nyou?"), and has to be reminded of their time at the Academy together.\nThe Third Doctor does recognise him, however, though it seems not as\neasily as usual.The Mind Probe would later be used as a plot device in the Torchwood episode Sleeper.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Retroactive perspectives\nThis story takes place after The Dalek Invasion of Earth\nfrom the point of view of the First Doctor and Susan, given Susan\'s\nmature appearance and the implication that they have been separated for\nsome time.Although it is never made clear exactly where this story takes\nplace within the Second and Third Doctors\' chronology, it is made clear\nthat it takes place after the events of The Three Doctors. The Second Doctor mentions Omega\nwhile reminiscing with the Brigadier, and also makes a comment about\nhis own replacement being "unpromising" when he is in UNIT headquarters\nand meets Lethbridge-Stewart\'s successor. The Third Doctor also refers\nto "that fellow in the check trousers and black frock-coat? when he\nmeets the illusions of Mike Yates and Liz Shaw. The familiar and\nmock-antagonistic way that the Second and Third Doctors interact also\nsuggests that The Five Doctors takes place after the events of The Three Doctors\nfor them both. Since the First Doctor refers to the Second as "the\nlittle fellow", it is reasonable to assume that the story takes place\nlater in his chronology as well.The Second Doctor\'s method of determining that Jamie and Zoe are phantoms, which references the events of The War Games,\nis, seemingly, a continuity error, (subsequently rendering the Second\nDoctor\'s earlier meeting with the Brigadier in this story a continuity\nerror). The memories of Jamie and Zoe\'s travels with the Doctor, as\nopposed to their respective initial adventures with him in their own\nhome eras (The Highlanders and The Wheel in Space) were wiped in The War Games\nwhen they were returned to their own times at a moment just after they\nhad left in the TARDIS. There are various fan explanations for this and\nit is noted that it is the Brigadier only that they should not have\nrecognised as neither of them would remember meeting him in The Web of Fear and The Invasion respectively. (see Season 6B)This story takes place some time between The Time Warrior and Planet of the Spiders from the Third Doctor\'s point of view, as he recognises Sarah Jane, for whom events take place after K-9 and Company.The Third Doctor reacts to Sarah\'s mimed description of the Fourth\nDoctor by saying, "Teeth and curls?" and telling her the change has not\nhappened yet for him. Although the Third Doctor may just be\ninterpreting her gestures, his accuracy has led some fans to believe\nthat it implies a previous unseen encounter with the Fourth Doctor.\nAccording to Terrance Dicks on the DVD\ncommentary, the line was supposed to be Sarah\'s, but Pertwee negotiated\nwith Elisabeth Sladen for him to say it instead, leading to the\nproblem. In the short story The Touch of the Nurazh by Stephen Hatcher from the anthology Short Trips: Monsters,\nan injury makes the Third Doctor begin to regenerate into the Fourth\nbut the process is reversed. This is witnessed by Jo Grant, and the\ntheory is that she subsequently describes the Fourth Doctor\'s\nappearance to the Third.This story occurs after Mawdryn Undead from the Brigadier\'s point of view, given that he recognises Tegan and later the Fifth Doctor.At the start of the episode, Sarah Jane Smith is shown with K-9, a direct reference to the spin-off pilot of two years earlier, K-9 and Company. The two characters later returned in the Tenth Doctor story School Reunion.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Production\nThe working title for this story was The Six Doctors. It would have been written by former script editor Robert Holmes and would have featured the Cybermen and their kidnapping of the five incarnations of the Doctor; in their attempt to extract Time Lord DNA to turn themselves into "Cyberlords", the twist being that the First Doctor and Susan would actually be android\nimpostors (the former being the "Sixth Doctor" of the title) and the\nSecond Doctor would have saved the day. However, Holmes dropped out at\nan early stage and another former script editor, Terrance Dicks, was\nbrought in instead. Some elements of this plotline would be reused in\nHolmes\'s own The Two Doctors.The original script featured an appearance by the Autons, last seen in Terror of the Autons.\nAfter being dropped into the Death Zone, Sarah would have been attacked\nby a group of them before being rescued by the Third Doctor. However,\ndue to budgetary restrictions, the scene was dropped and replaced in\nthe finished version.Just before she meets the Third Doctor, Sarah falls a few feet down\nwhat fans have generally considered a rather unconvincing slope. In the\nnovelisation, Sarah actually steps off a cliff. This was what was\noriginally intended in the script, but for budgetary reasons the\nsequence was changed.Nathan-Turner\'s first choice of director for the story was Waris Hussein, who had directed the first ever Doctor Who serial, An Unearthly Child, in 1963. However, Hussein was in America at the time and was unable to accept the offer.[3] Nathan-Turner then asked another veteran director, Douglas Camfield, to direct but he also declined. It has been suggested[citation needed] that Camfield was offended to be second choice or that he was angered that Nathan-Turner had not asked him back to Doctor Who before, but there is no known evidence to support this suggestion. Camfield was also very ill with heart disease, and this may have had an impact on his decision not to direct the production. He died of a heart attack early in 1984.The programme is officially a co-production with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation,\nalthough the production team were not aware of this during production\nand the agreement in effect amounted to little more than a\npre-production purchase pact.The story was prepared in two formats: the ninety-minute version\nand a four-part version, the latter designed for international\ndistribution or repeat broadcasting in the ordinary series run. The\nepisode breaks were, respectively: Sarah falling down the slope, the\nCybermen placing their bomb outside the TARDIS while Susan and Turlough\nwatch; and the Master appearing behind the First Doctor and Tegan while in the Dark Tower.In the various publicity photos of the five Doctors from this story, a waxwork model of Tom Baker from a 1980 Doctor Who Exhibition in Madame Tussaud\'s\nwas used. According to producer John Nathan-Turner, Baker had agreed to\ndo the photocall for the 20th anniversary but, suspecting that he might\nnot turn up, Nathan-Turner organised for the waxwork to be on location.[4]This is the only programme from the classic series of Doctor Who\nfor which all recorded and filmed material, including alternate and\nunused takes, fluffed scenes and so forth, still exists in\nbroadcast-quality format. This allowed for the creation of the 1995\nversion of the story.The end credits featured a specially mixed version of the theme music, which began with Delia Derbyshire\'s original 1960s arrangement and then segued into the Peter Howell\narrangement being used by the series at the time. This arrangement was\nonly used on this one occasion and was the last time that the\nDerbyshire version was heard during the show\'s original run. A unique\narrangement of the opening credits music was also used, which ended in\na brief coda phrase that was never used in any other serial.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Outside references\nThe Brigadier references "Guy Fawkes" and "Halloween".The Third Doctor\'s line, "Scarecrow!" (aimed at the Second Doctor), is an in-joke, referencing the fact that Jon Pertwee played Worzel Gummidge.Some of the inscriptions on the tombstone when they reach Rassilon\'s Tower are mathematical symbols.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nIn print\n\n\nDoctor Who book\n\n\n\n\n\nThe Five Doctors\n\n\nSeries\nTarget novelisations\n\n\nRelease\xc2\xa0number\n81\n\n\nWriter\nTerrance Dicks\n\n\nPublisher\nTarget Books\n\n\nCover\xc2\xa0artist\nAndrew Skilleter\n\n\nISBN\n0 426 19510 8\n\n\nRelease\xc2\xa0date\n24 November 1983\n\n\nPreceded by\nArc of Infinity\n\n\nFollowed by\nMawdryn Undead\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nA novelisation of this serial, written by Terrance Dicks, was published by Target Books in November 1983; it was the only Target novelisation to be published before its story was transmitted.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n Broadcast, VHS and DVD releases\nThe Five Doctors was first broadcast in the United States\non the actual date of the programme\'s 20th anniversary.

This version was also released on Laserdisc in 1994.It was rereleased on VHS in 1990 without 2 minutes of edits present\nin the earlier tapes and discs. To date, this is the only release of\nthe story as originally broadcast.A Special Edition of the episode, with updated special\neffects, surround-sound compatibility and an alternate editing of the\nraw material was released on VHS in 1995 in a box set with the video of\nThe King\'s Demons\nand a limited edition postcard album. Since about 2000, this version\nhas been turning up frequently in the syndication package instead of\nthe original.This was the first Doctor Who serial to be released on DVD, on November 1, 1999.\nSome of the special effects were further enhanced and the voice of\nRassilon was noticeably different.

    "Dead Man Walking" is the seventh episode of the second series of British science fiction television series Torchwood. It was broadcast by BBC Three and BBC HD on February 20, 2008[1]; it will make its terrestrial debut on BBC Two on February 27.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nThe team is still recovering after the events of "Reset". Owen Harper, shot dead, is about to be opened up for autopsy by Martha Jones. Jack\nhowever tells everyone to leave him alone until he returns. Jack runs\nto a place where he talks to a girl, a fortune teller. She says he owes\nher a favour, and appears to have a tarot card with Jack\'s face on it.\nThe young girl tells him where to find what it is he is looking for,\nthough as he leaves she is seen holding a tarot card depicting the Grim Reaper.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nJack goes to the location where the girl had sent him, which is an\nabandoned church called St. Mary\'s. It is also the home of many Weevils.\nHe manages to locate the box which holds the item he desires, and\nreturns to the hub and shows the astonished team exactly what he had\nfound. He holds up a resurrection glove, similar to the one that was used by Suzie and Gwen.\nGwen immediately objects to what Jack is about to do, reminding him of\nwhat had happened before with Suzie, though Jack ignores her and hopes\nto bring Owen back for two minutes or so for everybody to say their\ngoodbyes to him. He resurrects Owen, who is confused and scared. Toshiko\ntells Owen that she loves him, and Jack tries to prepare Owen for\ndeath. The connection is lost, Owen stops breathing, and Jack holds\nOwen\'s hand, believing he is dead. We then hear Owen\'s voice saying\nthat he will need his hand back, and it is obvious that the plan has\nbackfired.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nAs before\nwith Suzie, the glove has brought Owen back from beyond death\npermanently, although this time there is no obvious source. No energy\nis being drained from Jack, as Suzie was draining energy from Gwen, but\nOwen is getting energy from somewhere. Toshiko tells Owen she didn\'t\nmean what she told him before (that she loves him) and Owen says that\nthis is a textbook reaction to grief, but does not want to discuss it\nfurther, changing the subject and leaving the room.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nOwen then finds himself occasionally having visions of himself in a\nplace shrouded in darkness and hearing eerie whispers. He also\ntemporarily loses control of his body during which his pupils dilate\nand he speaks in an unknown language. Although he has been put in\nquarantine, Owen escapes and goes out to a bar in Cardiff, where he\ndiscovers that he is no longer able to digest drinks, or pump blood (in\norder to have sex), as he is now the walking dead, and his life\nprocesses have stopped. Jack catches him and they have a bar brawl\nwhich results in them both being put in a police cell. During their\ntime in the cell, Owen intentionally vomits the drinks that would have\notherwise been stuck in his stomach and starts to panic about death. He\nand Jack bond, and Jack reveals that he once dated Marcel Proust\nand that his immortality, which Owen is coveting in his position, is\nnot as good as Owen suspects. They then leave after Jack reveals his\nthoughts on immortality. Once outside they encounter numerous Weevils\nthat chase Owen and Jack until they are cornered on a rooftop. They are\nsurprised that instead of killing them, the Weevils bow to Owen who\nagain temporarily loses control of his body and addresses the Weevils\nin the same unknown language.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nUpon analysis, it is found that Owen\'s cells are changing slowly,\nand upon 100% transformation something will happen. Research shows that\na similar situation occurred in legend, and that Death\nitself comes back with the revived and searches for 13 victims whose\nconsumed souls will enable Death to remain in the world; Death would\notherwise quickly perish. The story says that \'faith\' was what stopped\nit. Believing this legend is in the process of repeating, Owen suggests\nthat he must have his neural pathways closed by being embalmed in order\nto stop Death from using him as a gateway. During the embalming\nprocess, the resurrection gauntlet comes to life and attacks Martha\nbefore being destroyed, draining the life from her and reducing her to\nan old woman. Owen shoots the gauntlet, and as his cells fully change,\nhe loses control again, and the gauntlet transforms into a dust which\nappears to possess him. He speaks in the same voice as he did when\nchanged earlier, and says \'I will walk the earth forever, and my hunger\nshall know no bounds\' - a phrase attributed earlier to Death.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nDeath escapes from Owen and heads to a hospital, being drawn to\nthose close to death, and begins taking their souls. Martha is also\nbrought to the hospital in her heavily aged state, where a nurse says\nthat as her red blood cell count is low and as she is over eighty, her\nchances of survival are slim. The team evacuates everyone from the\nbuilding while Death, after taking twelve souls, chases after a young leukaemia patient who had been accidentally left behind. Owen saves the child and helps him and Tosh to escape. Ianto,\nwho is waiting with Martha, explains to the team that the \'faith\' which\ndefeated Death before was in fact the resurrected child, whose name was\nFaith. Owen then realizes that he himself is the only one who can fight\nthe Grim Reaper as he is already dead and therefore has nothing to\nlose. After kissing Tosh (and stealing her lockpicking/sealing gadget),\nOwen locks the other members of the team out of the hospital and begins\na brawl with Death, eventually consuming its energy and forcing it back\ninto the darkness.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nUpon returning to the Hub, Martha explains to Owen that now the\nenergy keeping him \'alive\' is dissipating but could take an unknown\namount of time to do so, anywhere between 30 minutes and 30 years, or\neven longer. Jack explains to Toshiko that you can never defeat death,\nonly escape it. The episode ends with Owen asking Jack to let him work\nagain, as by doing his job as a doctor he can try and repay the lives\nof those lost when Jack brought Owen back.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nCast\nCaptain Jack Harkness -- John BarrowmanGwen Cooper -- Eve MylesOwen Harper -- Burn GormanToshiko Sato -- Naoko MoriIanto Jones -- Gareth David-LloydMartha Jones -- Freema AgyemanRhys Williams -- Kai OwenLittle Girl -- Skye BennettNurse -- Joanna GriffithsJamie Burton -- Ben WalkerHen Night Girl -- Lauren PhillipsDoctor -- Golda RosheuvelHospital Patient -- Janie BoothPolice Officer -- Rhys Ap WilliamWeevil -- Paul Kasey (uncredited)\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nContinuity\nThe use of a second resurrection gauntlet leads to many references to that used by Suzie Costello in "Everything Changes" and "They Keep Killing Suzie". Ianto reprises his line "That\'s the thing about gloves - they come in pairs..." from the latter episode.Martha Jones aged rapidly like the Doctor in "The Sound of Drums".\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nOutside references\nThe unknown language that Owen speaks during his possesion is made up of part of the \'seven words\' used in The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant novels by Stephen R Donaldson. The words melenkurion, abatha, duroc, minas, mill and khabaal. Specifically, Owen recites the latter four over and over again, and Toshiko\'s translation device allocates the word duroc with hunger. Ironically, the seven words as originally used by Donaldson in his novels are to evoke Earthpower which by its very nature is a force for good in his fictitous Land.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n"Tell me, Doc, is it worth starting War and Peace?" is a repeat of a line from the series Cracker.\n\n\n\n\n\nDoctor Who: The Voyage Of The Damned (2007 Christmas Special) (Dr.Who)David Tennant & Kylie Minogue\n\n\n\n\n\n(11 customer ratings)\n\n\n\n\n\nPS10.99 Free DeliveryRRP: PS15.99 | You save: PS5.00 (31%)\n\n\n\n\n\nPre-order. | Due for release on 10/03/2008\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nSpecial Features\xc2\xa0\n\n\n\n\n\n \n\n\n\n\n\nIncluding Time Crash! and Christmas ConfidentialReview\xc2\xa0\n\n\n\n\n\nThe latest Doctor Who Christmas Special star Kylie Minogue alongside David Tennant!When\nthe Doctor\'s tardis crash lands on the Titanic he discovers a plot to\ndestroy the human race...

    "Reset" is the sixth episode of the second series of British science fiction television series Torchwood, which was broadcast by BBC Three on 13 February 2008, right after the broadcast of "Adam" on BBC Two.[1] This episode featured Doctor Who companion Martha Jones in the first of three episodes.\n\n\n\n\n\n\nContents1 Synopsis\n2 Cast3 Continuity4 Production5 References6 External links\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n//&lt;![CDATA[\n if (window.showTocToggle) { var tocShowText = &quot;show&quot;; var tocHideText = &quot;hide&quot;; showTocToggle(); } \n//]]&gt;\n\n\n\n\n Synopsis\nA series of seemingly professional murders in Cardiff prompts Jack to call in UNIT medical specialist Martha Jones\nfor help. She informs him that there have been similar murders\nthroughout the UK. Both Owen and Jack flirt with Martha, causing Gwen\nto show some jealousy, though she and Martha end up clicking together\nas great friends. Jack is more open and light- hearted when Martha\narrives, dropping hints about their travels with the Doctor. They\ndiscover that one of the victims had been cured of diabetes and another of HIV.\nWith this information they trace the killings back to a medical centre\nnamed The Pharm. One woman had been attacked but survived and was in a\nhospital. She has a seizure after admittance and fly-like creatures\nrise out of her mouth and try to enter Owen and Martha, but die before\nthey get the chance. Martha has no choice but to go undercover as\nSamantha, a hepatitis sufferer, in order to investigate the centre\'s real purpose.\n\n\nWhile there, she discovers that The Pharm is responsible for the\ndrug "Reset" which is what cured the previously incurable diseases. But\nthe problem with Reset is that it works by releasing alien parasites,\ncalled Mayflies, into the human bloodstream - the Mayfly larvae proceed\nto "reset" the human body, eliminating even incurable diseases such as\nHIV. The downside to the drug is that the Mayfly larvae eventually\nhatch and eat the person from the inside. Martha is caught snooping\naround the mayfly laboratories and the medical director examines her\nand states that her white blood cells have mutated due to "travel in\ntime and space\'. He is curious to see how her immune system will react\nto Reset and injects her with it.When Torchwood catches the Pharm-hired\nassassin who is carrying out the murders, they find that he has a\nmayfly in him as well, after Owen tries to use alien technology to get\nit out of him. He screws up and the fly busts out of the assassin\'s\nstomach instead. They use the body to get into the Pharm, and Owen and\nJack find the medical director and Martha while Ianto, Gwen and Tosh\nfind \'research labs\' where alien life-forms are being held captive. The\nlarvae in Martha have killed each other off until only one is left, and\nOwen manages to use the alien gun to extract it from her safely. He,\nMartha and Jack meet up with the other three by the Torchwood van and\nshut down the Pharm. The medical director corners them with a gun and\npoints it at Martha, asking if they really believed he would just step\naside and let them get away with that. Owen steps in front of Martha\nand tries to reason with the man, whom he had formerly respected. He\nsays that they are both rational men, but the medical director shoots\nhim anyway. Jack then shoots him as Martha tries to treat Owen back.\nAfter she injects him near the heart, a look of peace comes over Owen\'s\nface, and the next second Martha, in tears, says \'He\'s dead.\'\n\n\n\n\n\n Cast\nCaptain Jack Harkness -- John BarrowmanGwen Cooper -- Eve MylesOwen Harper -- Burn GormanToshiko Sato -- Naoko MoriIanto Jones -- Gareth David-LloydMartha Jones -- Freema AgyemanAaron Copley -- Alan DalePlummer -- Jacqueline BoatswainMarie -- Jan AndersonBilly -- Rhodri MilesMike -- Michael SewellPoliceman -- John Samuel WorseyWeevil -- Paul Kasey (uncredited)\n\n\nCast Notes\n\n\nFreema Agyeman has been added to the opening credits as of this episode.\n\n\n\n\n\n Continuity\nThe same newspaper showing Margaret Blaine as the new mayor of Cardiff, as seen in "Boom Town", is attached to the door as Martha Jones enters the Torchwood reception.A variation of Martha\'s Theme, composed by Murray Gold for Doctor Who, appears as the character\'s motif.Several references are made to Martha\'s previous adventures with Jack in Doctor Who, including working under the same Doctor; "the end of the world"; and Jack\'s recent bad experience with a politician. Jack comments that he relied on Martha to save the world.Martha has earned her medical degree, and is a member of UNIT. It is hinted that Martha became a member of UNIT under the recommendation of the Doctor.The episode shares themes with the spin-off novel Slow Decay (specifically, aliens being used by human doctors for medical purposes).While undercover at the Pharm, Martha uses the name "Samantha Jones". A different Samantha Jones was the Eighth Doctor\'s first companion in the Eighth Doctor Adventures.Martha states her family are still recovering after the events in "Last of the Time Lords".\n\n\n\n\n\nProduction\nThe song "Feel Good Inc." by Gorillaz plays as Martha and Owen study the Mayfly. Also, the song Freakin\' Out by Graham Coxon plays in the information centre as Ianto lets Martha into the hub.\n\n\n\n19 -\xc2\xa0"Reset"\n\n\nTorchwood episode\n\n\n\nOwen examines the Mayfly that he extracted from the Pharm\'s hired killer.\n\n\nWriter\nJ.C.

    This week's podcast is much shorter than usual, due both to a stunning dearth of news to hash over and a boatload of technical problems yonder England way. Still, the RFS crew made valiant effort to spin gold out of lead, though we quite possibly ended up with zinc.\n
