At exactly two minutes to midnight, [Owen] heard the growl of an engine and then a big black off-roader appeared around the corner, blue lights flickering in the windscreen. The SUV skidded to a halt right next to him, TORCHWOOD stencilled in black on the rain-speckled wing.
The passenger door popped open, and Owen peered inside. ‘Going my way?’ he asked with more than a hint of sarcasm.
The interior was illuminated by a complicated range of VDUs and dashboard controls. Captain Jack Harkness was at the wheel, a broad grin on his face. ‘All the way,’ he said.

Something In The Water by Trevor Baxendale (Torchwood Novels #4)

And so it begins… with the classic subtlety that is Torchwood.

*doctor who spoilers*

I’ve seen the Torchwood episode Cyberwoman quite a few times and I could never really understand why Ianto didn’t realise how dangerous Lisa actually was even when she tried to kill the team. I got that he was in love with her etc but I couldn’t understand why he couldn’t see past that.

Then Bill Potts got turned into a cyberman. I cried so much when she said “I waited for you”. Bill has been my favourite Doctor Who companion ever I think she’s so beautiful and funny and smart and i was heartbroken when that happened.

Now I understand why Ianto did what he did. I would do the same for Bill. Even though she is a cyberman I would protect her at all costs. Now I can see why Ianto still believed that Lisa could be saved even after she tried killing the team. I feel so bad for Ianto because now I feel like I can actually understand what he went through and it’s so sad.

I heard this in a dream I had.

  • what she says: im fine
  • what she means: the death of Ianto Jones was completely unnecessary and it just makes me angry that they killed of a great potentially bisexual character (even though he said to his sister that it wasn’t men, it was only Jack) and no one cares about him and im just so angry that they couldnt let Jack keep someone he loved even for just a human lifetime and Ianto was so underappreciated and i really really love him and the audio books are great but i just wanted more of him in the tv show and i feel like they wasted a great opportunity for a great plot regarding him and Jack and they completely fucked the show up for me and series 4 sucks ass and everything sucks and I Miss Ianto Jones A Lot™ and then they both die and Jack wakes up among all the bodies and He Just Sits next to Ianto's corpse and mourns and i hate this show
