A portrait of Patton Oswalt as Pterodactyl Jones, the house detective of the most haunted hotel in New York City, The Opal, and his dinosaur-ghost sidekick, Harvey. Their adventures can be heard on the Beyond Belief episode “The Devil and Mr. Jones” on The Thrilling Adventure Hour.
Patton’s likeness still isn’t as close as I’d hoped, but Harvey makes up for it, I think.
Soon to be colored and turned into a cigarette card. Stay tuned.
I wanted to do a romantic comedy with Jack and Ianto, and the obstacle between them getting together is a pterodactyl! But Gareth added a wonderful depth to it, when, unseen by Jack, he starts to cry at the end. Obviously, the unspoken thing is that Ianto wants to get in to Torchwood so he can keep his girlfriend Lisa alive, so that’s a beautiful bit of empathising by Gareth that wasn’t in the script. That’s the extraordinary thing about this cast: they never stop creating.
