Synopsis: What has made billionaire Neil Redmond emerge from his long seclusion? Captain Jack knows the answer, and is prepared to go to any lengths to prove it.
A couple of years ago, Neil Redmond was in a terrible accident. His recovery has been long and slow, but now he’s back and looking better than ever. Much better than ever.
Dark forces have been behind Neil’s transformation. Dark forces that Jack has been hunting for a long time. But Captain Jack’s never been able to resist the darkness.
Review: In this installment, writer David Llewellyn blended Torchwood with elements of Terminator and Her. He crafted a three-hander character piece in which John Barrowman and Steven Cree confronted conspiracies and jealousies simultaneously. As good as Barrowman was here, though, it was Cree who did the really heavy lifting in a dual role. Excellent as the story was, however, the Extra during which Barrowman and Cree got their mutual Scots on was even more entertaining and regrettably short. All in all, this was interesting set up for the season finale next month.
