CUTEST SHOT EVER HAD TO MAKE THIS CAPTION PIC
Boy she makes me giggle so much “Gwyneth: Mr. Sneed, for shame How many more times It’s ungodly ! ! ! "
had to make this pic from this beautiful photo of Eve & Brad #Perfect
JACK HARKNESS: (v.o.) Torchwood. Outside the government, beyond the police.
Tracking down alien life on Earth and arming the human race against the future. The 21st
century is when everything changes. And you’ve got to be ready.
Ianto fiddles with his tie. The lift door opens he takes a breath, turns and exits. Owen, Gwen, Tosh and Jack are playing a game of basketball in the hub.
OWEN: Okay! Come on, Gwen!
Gwen tries to get in the clear. Jack picks her up and moves her to one side. Ianto enters the hub.
The rest of the team continues their game. There’s lots of shouting and laughter. They don’t’ notice he’s there. Owen stands up on the workstation platform. He’s got the ball.
OWEN: Gwen, this is for you, baby!
OWEN: Come on!
He throws the ball to Gwen. Jack intercepts it.
OWEN: Just get it off him!
OWEN: Take if out of his hands! Oi!
Gwen takes the ball from Jack and tosses it up to Owen who is still on the second floor workstation platform.
OWEN: Oh, come to Daddy!
He catches the ball, moves over a couple of steps and drops the ball into the net.
OWEN: OHH! First round’s on you, boss.
Ianto stands just outside the gate. They still don’t acknowledge his presence. He watches as the gate opens. They all grab their stuff and heads out.
OWEN: Girls, get your handbags!
JACK: Of course, that was an illegal move.
TOSH: Totally illegal!
OWEN: Yeah, keep telling yourself that, yeah. Losers. Bye.
They head out past Ianto. Jack tosses the ball to Ianto he catches it. They all leave. Ianto stands there as the elevator doors close on the group. He waits a few minutes, then moves quickly into the hub.
The team walks across the yard.
GWEN: He’s never seen a live rugby match!
JACK: I have other things to do with my time!
GWEN: Rhys knows a bloke whose cousin works at the Millennium Stadium. We should all go to the next home international.
HUB CONFERENCE ROOM
Ianto is on the phone.
IANTO: (to phone) Can you make it two Pepperoni Feasts tonight? And a tub of coleslaw. My boss says I’m not eating enough vegetables.
He looks down. The doors open and a man carrying a briefcase walks in. Ianto hurries down to meet him.
IANTO: (to phone) Yeah, usual time. See you then.
Ianto hangs up. The man looks up at the area as Ianto makes his way down the steps.
IANTO: Good to see you again, sir. Are they looking after you at the hotel?
He stops in front of Tanizaki and bows.
IANTO: Konnichiwa, Tanizaki-san.
Ianto takes Tanizaki’s case and shows him in through the hub. he leads Tanizaki to the door at the end of the corridor. Ianto puts the case down and takes out a key. He unlocks the door. turns and looks at Tanizaki.
IANTO: I did all I could. I really did.
He pushes the door open and they enters
Ianto puts the case down and they look at what he wants Tanizaki to see.: There is a ventilator, a heart monitor and a person is hooked up to it. Tanizaki steps forward. He can hardly believe his eyes. Ianto steps forward and tilts the bed to an angle. There,on the bed we see is a partially transformed cyberwoman.
TANIZAKI: My God! It’s not possible! One of them survived!
Ianto steps forward and kisses the cyberwoman on the lips. He turns and looks at Tanizaki.
IANTO: This is Lisa.
Lisa’s eyes open. Ianto steps away. Tanizaki stares at Lisa.
TANIZAKI: Is she awake?
IANTO: (shakes his head) It’s just a reaction to the medication.
Tanizaki puts on his glasses
TANIZAKI: She’s the only one left. Across the whole world.
He turns and shakes Ianto’s hand.
TANIZAKI: Thank you, thank you so much. Bringing me here. I never thought …
He climbs up and checks Lisa’s eyes with his penlight.
TANIZAKI: … to get my chance … to study …
He moves around to the other side to check her other eye
TANIZAKI: … to work with … anything like this.
IANTO: (corrects) Anyone.
TANIZAKI: Tell me, what happened?
IANTO: She worked for Torchwood London. (As he talks, Tanizaki checks Lisa’s legs.) It was the end of the Canary Wharf battle. The Cybermen needed soldiers fast. They started upgrading whole bodies instead of transplanting brains using Earth technology.
Lisa was halfway through the process when the machinery shut down.
Ianto slips his hand into Lisa’s.
TANIZAKI: You found her?
flashback to: Ianto screams as he drags Lisa out of the area as people scream all around him.
IANTO: Help! Help me, please! Somebody!
IANTO: Help me!
End of flashback. Resume to present.
IANTO: I pulled her out.
TANIZAKI: Do you know the percentages?
IANTO: The what?
TANIZAKI: Some elements have been augmented. Some are still human. Sensory capacity, for instance. Her breathing and hearing appears completely cybernetic. And yet…there’s also bare flesh…….. Amazing. Perhaps 55% augmentation with 45% awaiting completion. Do you think? Or perhaps, maybe 60/40. It’s fascinating.
IANTO: Can you make her human again?
TANIZAKI: You took parts from a Cyber conversion unit and modified them into a life support for her? How did you know what to do?
LISA: I told him.
IANTO: I thought you were resting. You should be resting. How’s the pain? Are the new doses working?
LISA: A little. ….. Oh… Is this him?
IANTO: I promised, didn’t I?
LISA: And you always keep your promises.
TANIZAKI: I would like to ask her some questions. My name is Dr Tanizaki. I specialise in Cybernetics. Your friend, Mr Jones, asked me…
LISA: My boyfriend.
TANIZAKI: Yes. He asked me to come.
LISA: We agreed, together.
TANIZAKI: Few simple questions. What is your name?
LISA: Lisa Hallett.
TANIZAKI: How old are you?
TANIZAKI: What is the last thing you remember before coming here?
IANTO: Somebody! Anybody!
End of flashback. Resume to present.
LISA: Pain……… I remember my body burning with pain.
TANIZAKI: You said… there was somewhere I could work upstairs?
TANIZAKI: This first stage should enable her to breathe without the respirator. Once her body functions without support, I can judge what work is needed.
IANTO: What if she’s not ready to breathe on her own?
TANIZAKI: You must be prepared for her not to survive, Sometimes… in order to save what we love, we have to risk losing it.
Tanizaki presses a button on his laptop Machine Bleeps and the heart monitor flatlines
IANTO: She’s not strong enough!
TANIZAKI: Let me do my work!
The rest of the Torchwood team are all sat at a bar
JACK: And she said, “D'you know how difficult it is to find a man in this city? He had a nice flat, all his own hair, so frankly, a couple of tusks, I can live with!”
They all laugh at the joke and pager beeps
OWEN: Ianto’s mate.???
TOSH: (reading) UFO sighting over Cardigan Bay. Seven calls to the emergency services.
OWEN: Oh… Can we at least finish our drinks, please?
JACK: Sure. Take ten seconds.
Back at the Hub in the Autopsy room
Heart monitor flat lines and lisa gasps for air Ianto holds Lisa’s hand
IANTO: If she dies because of you…
Lisa Gasps again the machine boots and the heart monitor beeps
IANTO: Yes, I’m here! She’s breathing! It worked!
LISA: Why aren’t I connected?
IANTO: You’re alive! (kiss) He kept you alive!
LISA: Thank you.
TANIZAKI: This is only the start.
Computer beeps and Ianto checks monitor and sees team on there way back.
IANTO: We’ve gotta move. Quickly!
Picks up Lisa
LISA: I’ll walk!
IANTO: You’ve only just woken up. You can’t.
LISA: I want to walk! Please.
IANTO: Help her downstairs. I’ll clear up here.
Tanizaki takes Lisa, They start to leave, Lisa turns to look at Ianto
LISA: I’m alive.
The team on way back to office
TOSH: All I’m saying is, once in a while, I’d like to drive!
OWEN: And all I’m saying is no!
TOSH: Why not?!
OWEN: Look, I’ve shared cars with women before. I know what’ll happen. There’ll be an emergency, we’re all raring to go, I jump in, what do I find? Seat’s in the wrong position, the rear view mirror’s out of line and the steering wheel’s in my crotch. Time it takes to sort it all out, aliens’ll have taken Newport.
Jack Laughs as they walk off the camera fades to black back in the hub Tanizaki & Lisa are climbing down to get back to her room. Ianto running to catch up.
The team walk into the information office
GWEN: What about a rota? Different people drive on different days.
JACK: We’re a secret organisation, hunting alien technology from an underground base. ……. And you want a rota for who drives?
GWEN: Just trying to help.
Jack presses the button to the hub entrance and walks on through door, Gwen waits looking and has to rush thro the door before it closes. Corridor below Ianto and Tanizaki are helping lisa walk
IANTO: As soon as they’re gone, I’ll be down.
Back up above
JACK: Tosh, call up the radar within a 50-mile radius of the Bay for the last six hours. Gwen, check with that man - Neil, I think his name was, voice like Sean Connery - at Jodrell Bank. See if they picked up any chatter around the time of the sightings. Owen, access the airspace provision over Cardigan Bay, also any RAF flightplans, see if it’s just a case of mistaken identity.
Ianto walks in, stops looks around and straightens tie
Back in the Cyber room
TANIZAKI: Take it slowly. You’re still very weak. This way.
Tanizaki Turns her so she can lie down, he smiles She stands up straightgrabs him by the throat and lifts him into the air
Ianto walks in slowly, past them
GWEN: Is that Neil? It’s Gwen Cooper from Torchwood. I know, we’re always after something, aren’t we?
JACK: Ianto! Would you work some coffee magic?
He turns to look at Jack, who makes puts his hands together. to say please… Ianto heads up stairs.
Lisa straps Tanizaki into the conversion unit
TANIZAKI: Lisa! Let me go!
CYBER!LISA: **electronic voice **: I can help you. The human race is weak. I can make you strong.
She presses a button. Blue lightnings on the conversion unit; Tanizaki struggles and screams out. The Cyber unit with the drills and knives opens up and begin moveing Then the door slams shut.
The Lights flicker …… Ianto looks up, with shock and worry on his face
GWEN: What’s happening?
TOSH: Internal power drain.
GWEN: What’s causing it?
JACK: Something big to drain that amount of power. Tosh, run a system diagnostic.
IANTO: Actually… We’ve been having generator problems all evening. I was down there checking earlier. Couple of bits of cabling have come loose. I thought I’d fixed it……….
Everyone looks up at Ianto,
……………………………………………..Let me have another look.
JACK: Fine. Go check.
GWEN: Want some help?
IANTO: It’s fine.
Ianto running down the Corridor, Alarms Blaring out
IANTO: You’ve got to shut down the power!
Rushes through door into the Cyber room the lights flicker on and off, he runs to the machine to switch it off. Hits the off button, turns, sees… half cyber- mutilated corpse of Tanizaki.
IANTO: Oh, God! Oh, my God! (Kneels next to him) What happened?!
LISA: His upgrade failed.
IANTO: Was it an accident? Tell me you didn’t do this!
LISA: I wanted to repay him for helping me. By removing the weaknesses of his humanity.
IANTO: What have you done?! You’ve killed an innocent man!
LISA: It’s all right.
IANTO: It’s not all right! They’re gonna come looking for me in a minute. If they see the body, if they find out what we’ve been doing…
LISA: I can deal with them.
IANTO: Don’t you go near them! ………….You didn’t mean to do this. Something’s happened to your mind. Um… just, um… Some kind of side effect from this whole process. It’s post-traumatic. You didn’t mean to…
He pushes her and yells
…………………………You’ve ruined everything now!
Lisa regains her balance and stares at him. Walks forwards, cyber noises as she steps.
IANTO: How hard (puts hands on her face) have we had to work to keep you alive? And now you do this. (he leans and puts his forehead agenst hers) I need you to stay in here. Rest. Don’t come out unless I tell you. This can’t happen again, Lisa. If you harm anyone else, I’ll…
CYBER!LISA: Yes? What will you do?
IANTO: (Looks lost,, confused and upset then looks down at the floor) OK, the body. I’ve got to deal with the body. I can do this. (Starts sobbing, uncontrollably with his head in his hands) This is my fault! I’m responsible for this! (picks up corpse, drags it out toward the door) I’ll hide the body. Everything’s gonna be OK.
As Ianto leaves he closes and locks door Lisa turns on conversion unit again…….. Back upstairs ……….
GWEN: That’s a UFO?!
OWEN: Only just!
JACK: Arkan leisure crawler, first generation. Collectors’ item, don’t see many of those around these days. Tosh, send a polite message saying great to see them, but could they please get the hell out of our atmosphere they’re spooking the locals.
GWEN: Shouldn’t we be apprehending it? Investigating it?
JACK: Oh, please. You interrogate an Arkan, you’ll be in there for a month. And that’s just the first question. They are so boring. Besides, they’re mostly made of liquid, the cells would be a mess.
The lights flicker of and on again with power noises
OWEN: There it goes again!
JACK: (into wrist device): Ianto, we’ve got another dose of darkness. You found anything?
Corridor Lights flashing, Alarms Sounding……. Ianto sobs as he drags the corpse of Tanizaki.
JACK: Ianto? I need to hear those…
** Flash to corridor **
JACK: …‘beautiful Welsh vowels!’
Cyberwoman Lisa in the conversion unit, lightning playing over her
TOSH: Power’s draining to the storeroom at the bottom of the building. Looking for human heat signals. We’ve got…
OWEN: Two signals?
TOSH: So assuming one’s Ianto…
GWEN: Who’s the other????????
JACK: I’m thinking we’re under attack……. Security’s been breached. We assume battle protocols.
TOSH: That’s impossible! Nobody can get in without triggering seven separate alarms.
They Start getting their guns out
JACK: Yeah, well, looks like our system needs to be upgraded.
OWEN: I’ll head down and look for Ianto.
GWEN: I’ll come with you.
OWEN: (to Jack) You all right with that?
JACK: Keep your comms open at all times. Any doubts, shoot first. Priority is to find Ianto.
Ianto drags the corpse in, puts it next to a heap of stuff, starts covering it up
IANTO: I’m sorry.
Gwen and Owen in Lower corridors looking for Ianto torches and guns out , red and blue glow from behind the doors at the end of the corridor.
GWEN: What’s down here?
OWEN: Normally? Nothing.
JACK ((ov coms)): 'Progress report?’
OWEN: Signs of… (on coms as we watch Jack) 'activity at the eastern end of the main corridor.’
JACK (Now talking into earpiece): We’re losing your comms signals.
GWEN: We’re going in to have a look.
TOSH: Whatever that power source is, it’s interfering with the comms.
JACK: Gwen, Owen? Can you hear me? Damn! Can we get them back?
TOSH: Trying other channels. There’s something else you need to see. I’ve gone back through our internal CCTV footage for the last couple of hours. Someone’s tried to remove the images from our system.
JACK: See, now I’m starting to get a little peeved. These people come into my house, start using my things…
TOSH: I’ve dug into the system memory.
They see Ianto welcome Tanizaki
JACK: What the hell’s going on here?!
OWEN: Jack? ……… Tosh?
JACK: Gwen? Owen? Can you hear me?
GWEN: No comms.
OWEN: We’re on our own, then.
Door, Owen looks in while Gwen covers corridor
OWEN: What the hell is going on?
GWEN: What’s the matter?
OWEN: I can’t see well enough. But there’s something in there. Some kind of operating table. Get the bolts.
Unbolts door, Owen unlocks
OWEN: Yeah. OK, one, two…
Kick door in unison Go in guns waving, then Owen’s droops and he gives shock face when he see’s the empty cyber conversion unit,
OWEN: No! No, no, no, no!
GWEN: What the hell is it?!
OWEN: It’s wrong. It’s beyond wrong! It shouldn’t be here! Turn the thing off! TURN IT OFF!
Gwen hits big red off button
TOSH: Internal levels are being restored!
JACK: Gwen? Owen? Can you hear me?
OWEN: These things brought down Torchwood One. But they were all destroyed. Why is there one in our bloody basement?!
GWEN: Just tell me what it does!
OWEN: It’s the remnants of a conversion unit. This machinery turns humans into Cybermen.
JACK: (Over coms at Workstation ) If I don’t hear something within 30 seconds, 'I’m coming down there!’
GWEN: Jack, it’s Gwen. The comms dropped out. We’re back online now.
JACK: 'Any sign of Ianto?’
OWEN: No. But we have found parts of a Cyber conversion unit. 'Fully powered up and working.’
JACK: This is no time to be kidding around, Owen.
OWEN: I’m deadly serious! I dunno why it’s here, or how it got here. But that’s what’s draining our power.
Jack does serious face and straightens up
OWEN: Jack? You there?
JACK: I want you two back up here immediately!
OWEN: We still haven’t found… (Owen falls, knocked out by Cyberwoman)
GWEN: (Gun pointed at cyberwoman but shaking with fear……) Jack, code zero incursion. Repeat! 'Code zero incursion. We’re under attack.’
JACK: If you don’t hear from me within 15 minutes, activate total shutdown procedures and get yourself to safety.
TOSH: But I can’t just leave you all here!
JACK: If there’s a Cyberman in this building, we need a last line of defence. Just make sure it never gets to the outside world.
Cyber!LISA moves around, making lots of cyber noises,
GWEN: Whatever you… Whoever you are… I don’t mean you any harm. But come any closer, I’ll shoot.
Cyberwoman bats the gun away - it was right in her face - then she grabs Gwen by the throat and lifts her Gwen choking Lisa Pushes her to cyber conversion unit
GWEN: Let me go!
CYBER!LISA: Do not struggle. You will be like me.
GWEN: CRIES IN PAIN
Lisa lays Gwen on the table, which tilts back and grabs Gwen by the head with a clamp Lisa hits the ON button
JACK: (running down corridor…………..) Throw down any weapons, put your hands up and turn and face me!
Cyberwoman turns, full length shot, Jack sees
JACK: You’re a woman!
Gwen in conversion unit, flickering lights
GWEN: Owen! JACK!
Jack shoots, Cyberwoman turns, closeup of damaged by bullet tubes with spray coming out……..Gwen Screams ….. Ianto grabs Jack, shoves him up against the door
IANTO: She doesn’t know what she’s doing!
JACK: (Shoves Ianto against opposite door) You are fighting the wrong guy!
Knifey bit opens up again, whirring blades
GWEN: Get me out of here, someone, please!
Jack and Ianto both turn to look, run in. Ianto goes to the off switch.
GWEN: Switch it off!
IANTO: I’m trying! She’s changed all the circuits! Shut off the power everywhere!
JACK: Toshiko, cut all power in the base!
TOSH: I do that, the base goes into lockdown! We’ll be trapped.
JACK: Just do it!
GWEN: Switch it off!
Toshiko runs, grabs a big switch in Jack’s office and pulls it ……… Power goes down, Doors clang and lock, all over the base
GWEN: I’m fine. I’m fine, I’m fine. Sort of. Jack, please get me out of here!
JACK: It’s all right.
GWEN: Where is she? Where did she go? Please tell me you got her!
JACK: (looks at Ianto) Stand guard by the door.
IANTO: I’m sorry. I’m really sorry.
GWEN: What for?
JACK: Let’s just get out of here.
Uses his vortex manipulator on his wrist to unlock cyber conversion unit
Ianto in front Jack behind carrying Owen over his shoulder, gun pointed, Ianto and Gwen have torches
Walking, walking… Jumping! Cyberwoman steps into view.
GWEN: Oh, God, there she is. What is she?
JACK: Some form of Cyberman. They’re us, upgraded. Humans with emotions removed, created on a parallel world and supposedly destroyed on this one.
GWEN: What are we gonna do?
JACK: (sounds lost) I don’t know.
Gwen turns to stare at him
Lisa the Cyberwoman walks away,
IANTO: (sounding just as lost) She’s gone.
JACK: (points GUN at Ianto’s head, CLICKS) Get us back to the Hub.
GWEN: Jack, what are you doing?!
JACK: Resisting the urge to shoot.
Hub, main area
JACK: Tosh, get everything from the weapons room. Fast as you can.
TOSH: It’s locked down, there’s no manual override.
JACK: Just open the store!
Gun still pointed at Ianto, now pushes him down
JACK: On your knees! Hands above your head!
TOSH: Jack, for God’s sake! What are you doing?!
JACK: Tosh! I gave you an order! Gwen, help her! (To Ianto)
Did you know that thing was down there?
IANTO: I put her there.
JACK: You hid a Cyberman within Torchwood?! And you didn’t tell us? What else are you keeping from us?
IANTO: Like you care. I clear up your shit. No questions asked and that’s the way you like it. When did you last ask me anything about my life?
Jack lowers the gun and it clicks again
IANTO: Her name’s Lisa. She’s my girlfriend.
GWEN: Why didn’t you tell us? We could have helped you.
IANTO: Torchwood exists to destroy alien threats. Why would I tell you about her?
OWEN: A little loyalty, perhaps?
IANTO: My loyalty’s to her! She worked for Torchwood. She was caught up in battle. I owe it to Lisa… We owe it to her… to find a cure.
JACK: Ianto, you have to believe me. There is no cure. There never will be. Those who are converted stay that way. Your girlfriend will not be the exception.
IANTO: You can’t know that for sure.
JACK: Look, you need to know what’s happening here. Because this is where these things start. Small decisions that become mass slaughter. These creatures regain a foothold by exploiting human weakness. Then they take a base. Rebuild their forces. And before you know it, the Cyber race is spreading out across the universe, erasing worlds, assimilating populations. All because of the tiny beginnings here. We need to stop her…together!
IANTO: You’re not listening to me! The conversion was never completed!
JACK: She already tried to kill Gwen! You think she’s gonna stop there? There is no turning back for her now!
IANTO: I’m…not giving up on her. I love her…….. Can you understand that, Jack? Haven’t you ever loved anyone?
Gwen stares, Owen rolls eyes in background
JACK: You need to figure out whose side you’re on here. Because if you don’t know… you’re not going to make it out of this alive.
OWEN: There’s no way this weapons store’s gonna open.
TOSH: It’s going to take six hours for the power to come back online.
IANTO: Let me talk to her. I can still save her. Save all of us. She’s not a monster.
IANTO: Lisa… It’s me.
GWEN: You can’t just let him go…
JACK: (interrupts) Ssh!
CYBER LISA: The army will be rebuilt from here. This building is suitable.
JACK: Who are you?
CYBER LISA: Human point two.
IANTO: No!………… Lisa…
JACK: So how come you look like human point one?
CYBER LISA: I do not understand.
JACK: Look at yourself. Go ahead.
IANTO: Remember, Lisa. Remember who you are.
CYBER LISA: The upgrade is incomplete.
IANTO: You’re still human.
CYBER LISA: I am… disgusting. I have… I am… wrong.
IANTO: We can help you.
CYBER LISA: I must start again. Upgrade properly.
IANTO: For God’s sake! Have you heard yourself? Lisa, please. I brought you here to heal you. So we could be together.
CYBER LISA: Together. Yes. Transplant my brain into your body. The two of us…together. Fused. We’ll be one complete person. Isn’t that what love is?
CYBER LISA: Then we are not compatible.
Grabs Ianto by throat, lifts and throws him. Ianto splashes in water hits the concrete and doesnt move.
Jack points gun at Cyberwoman. She points arm at him and zaps the gun.
JACK: Code Nine manoeuvres. Go!
Grabs a device …. the Cyberwoman clunks towards Gwen, who freezes on the spot unknown what to do.
JACK:Gwen! Gwen! Get out of there!
OWEN: Lisa! What you waiting for?
Lisa turns and heads towards Owen
JACK: Gwen! ………
They run Cyber Lisa clunks along after them.
CYBER !LISA: Run. they all ran.
GWEN: She’s coming after us.
OWEN: There’s a surprise !
GWEN: Could you be any less helpful ? !
OWEN: Oi! I just helped you escape !
JACK: Shut up, both of you! OK, now, this is a fight to the death. We do whatever is necessary to destroy her. Forget what Ianto said. That thing is not human. Clear?
GWEN: Yeah, yeah.
All nod ……Jack puts down an alien device on table, Tosh picks it up
TOSH: What’s this?
JACK: Something Suzie scavenged last year. She claimed that it could open any lock in 45 seconds. I want you out the exit gates up the emergency stairs to reception.
OWEN: She’ll never open that door without power! It weighs a ton!
TOSH: Anyway, I’m not leaving you here!
JACK: Just do as I say! All of you! Once in reception… panel next to the desk, pull it out. Take circuit 357 from the main system and patch it to these (looks like emergency light sticks). There should be enough power in there for what we need. Once the main circuit goes live, get out. Meet us by the water tower. Go!
JACK: You two… find anything that even resembles a weapon.
OWEN: Autopsy room. There should be some lethal equipment there.
GWEN: (over Owen’s last word) What are you gonna do?
JACK: Buy you some more time. Go!
JACK: Hey! Lisa! It is Lisa, isn’t it? You’ve been hiding in my basement. That’s OK. Draining my power, I can live with that… But now you’re starting to hurt my friends. This is gonna stop.
chasing around the hub very slowly. Lisa makes her way towards Tosh who is trying to open the door
TOSH: (At door, working unlocker) Come on!
CYBER LISA: This building belongs to me now. You will all be deleted…
JACK: I’m sorry for what they did to you. But this ends here.
Cyberwoman grabs & electrocutes him
Gwen runs towards him, Owen grabs her, Tosh stares in shock ! The Cyberwoman turns away the unlocker tosh is holding bleeps and lights up the cage door opens, Toshiko pulls it open and darts inside, and closes it after her Lisa follows her …….. Jack Gasps in a breath and get up ……….
OWEN: How did he survive that?
JACK: Is that all you got? I’m not so easily deleted.
Cyberwoman grabs him and zaps him again Jack fall down to the ground with lightning bolts …. a shocked Gwen and Owen look on Owen grabs gwen ……….
OWEN: We can’t help him.
Lisa steps closer and closer to Tosh ….the lights on Tosh’s device flash and she rolls the door open, Cyberwoman breaks into cage, Tosh gets out and rolls door back in place, leans against it out of breath the
Cyberwoman Lisa punches the glass and sticks her arm through to try and grab her ……Tosh runs for the stairs
Owen is in the autopsy room, searching around for weapons……. Gwen keeping cover Lisa steps in view in front of her
she runs into autopsy room
GWEN: Is there another exit?
GWEN: We’re trapped?!
Owen pulls open door of the autopsy slab for chilling corpses
OWEN: Get in!
GWEN: No way!
OWEN: Lie on top of me and it’ll take us both.
GWEN: I’m not laying on top of you!
OWEN: I’m not saying it’s a brilliant idea, but it’s the only one we’ve got!
They Climb in, door closes, then Cyberwoman gets to the doorway …….
Flash to Jack …….
Jack gasps and wakes up again. The Cyberwoman is searching around the autopsy room ….Gwen and owen are hiding in the draw, panting …….Jack goes to Ianto, pulls him up out the water and turns him over. Cyberwoman still searching the autopsy room. Clanks down the steps…… Jack looks, then pats Ianto on the check to wake him …… Ianto remains unconscious………….. Flash back to Gwen and Owen
GWEN: What do we do?
Owen grabs gwen and kisses her ….. she responds there locked in a passionate embrace
Jack Grabs Ianto and kisses him. Gwen and Owen are
still kissing …. Flashes to Jack and Ianto who are also still kissing ……
Cyberwoman starts trying the little doors …….. looking for Gwen and Owen …… Gwen pulls away from Owen quickly ……….. Ianto wakes up and breathless, looking a bit surprised
JACK: (puts finger to Jack’s lips) Sssh!
GWEN’S MOBILE PHONE RINGS
Lisa looks up
OWEN & GWEN (repeating together): Where is it?
GWEN: Quick, please!
OWEN: Turn it off! Turn it off!
Flash to Rhys is talking on his mobile phone, on the bay front leaving an answer phone message for Gwen
RHYS: All right, lover, it’s the man of your dreams! I’ve had a couple of beers with Dav and we’re off for a curry, so can you video Wife Swap?
Back at the hub still red lit and dark and spooky,
Lisa sees them, she goes after Gwen…… Owen comes up behind her, goes for the tool tray, and grabs a chisel.
OWEN: Don’t you touch her!
Lisa turns to face him …. Owen stabs up through stomach with the chisel …….. Lisa Squeals in pain, Ianto,looks at jack then runs over to Lisa, splashing through water……. Lisa staggers and collapses, Owen lurches back and Gwen hides behind him.
GWEN: What the hell was that?
GWEN: Snogging me!
OWEN: Last kiss for the condemned man! Little embarrassing given we haven’t been killed. What?! It’s not like I fancy you or anything.
GWEN: I was on top of you. I could feel your hard-on.
OWEN: Yeah, well, you didn’t exactly struggle, did you?
Ianto runs to over and down the steps to Lisa thinking she is dead …..
OWEN: It was kill or be killed.
GWEN: Owen’s right. There was no choice.
Lisa’s eyes open with a robotic noise … she stands slowly
GWEN: Ianto, move! Get out! ( she pushes him to stairs) Get out I said! Move! Move!
Owen spots Jack coming towards them
OWEN: You should be dead.
JACK: I’m the stubborn type.
Lights a welding torch, very flamey, picks up Mystery Bottle, backs up
JACK: Get behind me!
Upstairs in the information office
TOSH: 357, 357, come on!
Down in the hub
JACK: (pointing both welding torch and mystery bottle) That’s right. Stay back. This’ll at least give you heartburn.
CYBER LISA: The power will run out. I can wait.
IANTO: Jack, help her. Give her a chance to surrender…
OWEN: Have you not seen what she’s done?
IANTO: Let her stay in the cells! We have to reverse the process!
JACK: I’ve told you! We’re past that! Hold him back!
GWEN: What are you gonna do?
JACK: Don’t ask questions, just get him on there and hold him!
Owen and Gwen drag Ianto onto lift step.
Jack sprays cyberwoman with barbecue sauce
GWEN: What is that stuff?
JACK: Kind of a barbecue sauce. It helps identify its food.
Turns off torch and joins them on lift
GWEN: Help what identify its food?!
JACK: (To Ianto) I’m sorry.
Jack uses wrist device ……….. Pterodactyl Squeals
JACK: Come on Tosh, hurry up.
IANTO: You’ll kill her!
Pterodactyl flies in and starts to fight with the Cyberwoman.
IANTO: Let me go……….! Let me help her!
TOSH: (Upstairs) Yes!
Power does it’s thing, the lift starts to rise ….. Jack and Gwen hold onto Ianto
JACK: Hold him still!
IANTO: NO! Call it off her! You can do that! Have some fucking mercy!
Lisa is down on the ground, Screaming,
IANTO: NO-O-O-O-O ! ! !
The lift rises, as the pterodactyl is attacking Lisa the lift reaches street level, Jack steps off , Ianto stumbles off……. Toshiko is running towrds them……
TOSH: It worked! What happened to…?
Ianto turns round angry then punches Jack
IANTO: You could have saved her!
IANTO: You’re worse than anything locked up down there! One day, I’ll have the chance to save you… and I’ll watch you suffer and die.
JACK: It was the only thing that would stop her!
TOSH: Listen, when I was at reception, I managed to trip the lockdown timer. The power should be coming back on any second. We can get back in.
Ianto begins to run back towards the information office entrance
The Torchwood team all run after him…….. Outside door, Torchwood information office there is a Pizza delivery girl
PIZZA GIRL: Pizza!
The Door buzzes and opens She goes in.
PIZZA GIRL: Ianto?
The Secret door to the Hub entrance opens, she goes through. the big rolling door opens, the Pizza girl goes down the steps, walks in. Looks around.
PIZZA GIRL: Bloody hell!
The Door rolls closes behind her.
PIZZA GIRL: Ianto? D'you want these or not?
The pterodactyl screeches the camera spins round Lisa is stood in the shadows damaged. ………… Ianto Running toward the Torchwood Reception area with all the team following.
JACK: Ianto! Stop!
GWEN: She can’t have survived that attack.
TOSH: I used my initiative! I’m sorry!
JACK: When I want you to think for yourself, I’ll tell you.
Ianto reaches the door and storms in
TOSH: Maybe if you’d told me your plan, I wouldn’t have done it!
inside the reception area … Ianto has stops grabs a gun from behind the counter, and press the secret door button, the others catch up. Ianto swings round and points the gun at them. Owen and Gwen freeze……….
GWEN: Ianto, don’t be stupid!
IANTO: I’ve nothing left to lose.
JACK: There’s always something left to lose.
Ianto points gun at Jack
IANTO: I’m going back in to save her. Anybody tries to stop me, I’ll shoot them.
GWEN: Ianto, put the gun…
Ianto swings round and points the gun at Gwen, Jack moves, grabs the gun and pins him against door. Gets out his own gun out and points it at Ianto’s head.
JACK: You make a threat like that, you better be prepared to follow it through…See, you disobey me now… I really will shoot you.
IANTO: Get off me!
JACK: You wanna go back in there? You go in to finish the job. If she’s still alive, you execute her ! ! ! ! !
IANTO: (Turns, looks at Jack.) No way.
JACK: You brought this down on us. You hid her. You hid yourself from us. Now it’s time for you to stand as part of the team.
GWEN: (Hand slowly on Jack’s shoulder). Jack…
JACK: The girl you loved has gone. Your loyalty is to us now.
IANTO: You can’t order me to do that.
JACK: You execute her or I’ll execute you both!
IANTO: I won’t do it. You can’t make me. You like to think you’re a hero. But you’re the biggest monster of all.
JACK: (Breathes out shakily. They stare at each other.) I’m giving you ten minutes. Then we’re coming in……… Pick it up.
Ianto bends, picks up weapons, stands, looks, then turns and goes into the base.
TOSH: How can you ask him…..
JACK: I don’t need your opinion!
Tosh looks shocked, Gwen has her hand over her mouth The Torchwood, door rolls back. Ianto runs in, looks around. Looks a mess he sees two Jubilee Pizza boxes in the water the pterodactyl squeals and there is a power loss again …..Ianto holds up his gun and runs through water through cells and out the door down into the lower level corridor to the cyber room
He bursts through the door. horror on his face. He turns and see’s the cyberwoman dead
Ianto breaks down. Goes over to hold her, he holds her head and the handles fall off. Ianto puts his hands under her head, his hands are soaked in blood.
PIZZA LISA: Ianto…
Ianto stands up, spins round points gun, at the pizza girl Lisa she has a blood cut line across forehead.
PIZZA LISA: Ianto, it’s me. It’s Lisa. I’m human again. You fought so hard for me, I had to hold on for you, so I took this body and transplanted the brain.
IANTO: You’re not Lisa.
PIZZA LISA: You always said you didn’t love me for what I looked like. Last time you said that, it was a Saturday. We were hungover. You made cheese toasties, and moaned I hadn’t descaled my kettle. That night, we camped on a beach in Brittany. It got so freezing we wore our coats and shared one sleeping bag. When we woke up the next morning, a dog was pissing on our tent.
Ianto sobbbing ……
PIZZA LISA: Hold me, Ianto. I need you to hold me. I need you to tell me it’s all right.
Ianto crying wallks over to hold her ..hugs her then backs off and brings his gun back up… it clicks and he points it at her face
PIZZA LISA: What are you doing? Ianto, it’s me! You wouldn’t shoot me. I did this for you!
IANTO: (Can barely talk for tears) I’m sorry. I’m sorry. (Lowers gun.) Lisa! (Turns away.)
PIZZA LISA: We can be upgraded together.
BOOM ! BOOM ! BOOM! All of the team
guns pointed. Jack fires first but they all join him. She falls back slowly on the conversion unit, the team lower there guns. Ianto looks at them. Gwen looks away upset but the others dont. Ianto turns and goes to Lisa. He drops to his knees rocks, and sobs
Fade to Cardiff, Sky shot of Millennium centre at night. into the hub the rolling door opens alarms sound Ianto walks in slowly, Jack and Gwen are up in the meeting room, looking down at him. Ianto looks up. Jack nods. Ianto nods back. Then he turns and goes to work.
GWEN: You’d never have shot him. Not really.
JACK: Wouldn’t I?
GWEN: Would you have shot me if I’d gone to stand by him?
JACK: But you didn’t.
GWEN: If I had, though.
JACK: But you didn’t.
Ianto picks up black bin bag and starts tidying up.
GWEN: Will he stay?
Jack gives an uncertain sideways nod
GWEN: All that deception. Because he couldn’t bear to live without her. So have you ever loved anyone, that much? ……. When she had hold of you, I thought, just for a moment, I thought maybe you could die after all.
JACK: Wanna know a secret? So did I. And just for a second there, I felt so… alive.
The camera pulls back from Jack and Gwen, spins around the hub to Ianto picking up the trash……
FADE TO BLACK
Because you know what the worst thing is of all? Of all the shit we have seen, all the bloodshed, all the horror- do you know what is worse than all of that? I loved it. I bloody loved it. And I’d keep telling Rhys I was sorry, and I’d say to little Anwen I’m sorry. But I loved it so much.
I knew things no one else knew and, oh, I felt so special. And when we lost people, it was so so big. And I could say it was worth it. ‘Cause the bigger it was, the more important I was. And the more people we lost, the more that meant I was a survivor and I was better than them.
TOO MANY FEELS !!!!!!!!
Ahhhhh Frandy feels !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Frankie !!!!!!!!!!
Torchwood Adam …. Gwhys feels
G'WAN FRANKIE !!!
FEELS ! !!!!
JACK : Torchwood. Outside the Government, beyond the police.
Tracking down alien life on Earth, arming the human race against the future. The 21st century is when everything changes, and you’ve got to be ready.
Gwen & Owen are running, Tosh is to them over the coms
TOSH: Owen. Gwen. Left into the alley, right, thirty meters…………
GWEN: What is it? What can you see?
TOSH: I can’t get a visual… . Just a signal. Definitely alien in origin.
Diagonal right, towards the castle.
Tosh is watching them on the monitors and compares where they are on a map to locate of where they need to be.
TOSH: Jack……… Sharp right, twenty meters.
JACK: Can you identify the target?
TOSH: Still trying to get a visual … twenty seconds to contact.
Gwen and Owen are still running.
Tosh checking their location on the screens.
TOSH: Fifteen seconds.
JACK: No heroics, we’ve got no idea what we’re dealing with.
TOSH: Ten seconds.
The SUV screeches to a stop. Tosh changes camera view.
TOSH: Got it!
On the monitors, the CCTV camera catches a man running through an alley.
TOSH: Got a visual. Suspect’s male, wearing a hoodie.
Gwen is running fast ahead of Owen. Gwen turns the corner. Tosh can see that Gwen is the closest to catching the man.
TOSH: Go, Gwen!
The man runs through the mall. Gwen is still behind him. Owen and Jack are further back. The man turns the corner and jumps over a mop & bucket the floor. Gwen jumps over the same bucket. She’s nearly catching up with him At the other end of the mall, the gate is closing. The man runs toward the gate and ducks underneath
He carries on running. Gwen reaches the gate just as its closing. She falls to the ground and rolls under it. She gets up and carries on running. The gate slams shut. Jack and Owen are caught on the other side.
JACK/OWEN: >Shouting< Come on! Open it up! Open it up!
GUARD: All right!
The gate opens. Jack and Owen slip under and chase after Gwen. Tosh still watching on the cameras.The man runs out into the night he glances behind him to see how far Gwen is, Gwen is catching up with him.The man runs into the underground station. He jumps over the low entry gate and falls on the other side.
VOICE: Hey! What are you doing?
Gwen enters the station and jumps over the fence.
VOICE (MAN): In trouble now, mate.
Tosh watches on the CCTV cameras.
The man continues running. He pushes his way between the people in the underground corridor. Gwen catches up with him. She grabs his jacket. The man slips out of his jacket and keeps running.
Gwen stands holding his jacket and catches her breath.
TOSH: You star! You did it!
GWEN: Oh, I was that close …
TOSH: No, you got it.
GWEN: I’ve lost him, Tosh, I’ve lost him.
TOSH: I swear, whatever it is … You’re holding it..
Gwen stops and looks the jacket.
TOSH: Let me check the camera.
Gwen checks the jacket pockets and finds a strange-looking device inside. She drops the jacket and looks at the device. There are flashing blue lights and a large button. Gwen presses the button …….
The station is deserted, not a sound is heard other than the echoing whoosh of wind and the sound of her Gwen breathing. Gwen looks around she is scared and panting heavily from her fear. off to her side, a little boy walks out He’s around eight years old carrying a travel bag, a suitcase and a old teddy bear. He’s got a name tag on him.Gwen turns and looks at the little boy. The boy continues walking in her direction.
The little boy doesn’t say anything.
GWEN: Who are you? ……….. Can you hear me?
YOUNG TOM FLANAGAN: (echo-voice) I want to go home.
He looks around. Gwen sees writing on the tag:
NAME: TOM ERASMMUS FLANAGAN
ADDRESS: ST. APPYHORN LNE The little boy looks all around him. Gwen is looking very scared.
YOUNG TOM FLANAGAN: (echo-voice) No-one knows who I am here. I’m lost.
The little boy walks away back through the station gates
GWEN: (scared) Come back … …… Come back.
The little boy walks through the station gates and vanishes.Gwen looks down at the alien device in her hand When she looks back up, the color returns. Sound returns. Movement returns. The people around her return. Jack and Owen turn the corner and run over to her. Gwen turns and looks at them.
JACK: I’m sorry, that damn gate cut us off.
Gwen doesn’t speak just looks at him
JACK: Gwen? Are you all right?
GWEN: I’ve just seen a ghost.
Owen and Jack turn and look at Gwen. Back at the hub Tosh shows Jack the CCTV footage
TOSH: This is the feed from the station camera. Gwen grabs the kid. She’s got his jacket, and he just slips out.
Jack picks up the alien device he walks over to Gwen who is watching the monitor as its projected on the wall
JACK: You okay with this?
GWEN: And then?
On the monitor, Gwen is standing very still. She’s holding the alien device in her hands, the jacket on the floor at her feet. Moments later, Jack and Owen appear on screen.
TOSH: Jack and Owen arrive. Then, nothing. Sorry.
GWEN: No, it. It was as real as this is. More real. I didn’t just see that little boy. I could … I could hear what he was thinking, I could feel it. Like I was lost.
Ianto appears with Coffee. He stops by Toshi workstation and puts a cup on her desk. Owen looks at Gwen.
OWEN: Tense emotion can be part of a neurological event. Hallucinations, dementia
GWEN: I wasn’t hallucinating, Owen. And I’m not bloody senile.
JACK: You pushed this button which caused this apparition moment?
GWEN/TOSHIKO/IANTO: Jack, no! Jack, please don’t! No!
JACK: As if!
GWEN: But that’s how it felt. Like an apparition. A ghost.
JACK: Toshiko, where do we start?
TOSH: The guy you were chasing, I’ve got lots of CCTV, so tracking him down is gonna be easy. The little boy? You said there was a name on the card around the little boy’s neck?
GWEN: Flanagan. Tom Erasmus Flanagan.
JACK: Unusual name, that’ll help. Run a full check. Births, marriages, deaths, criminal record, passports. However long it takes, wherever he is, we’ll find him.
OWEN: Found him. (Everyone turns to look at Owen.) Flanagan, Thomas Erasmus. 74 Brynaeron Terrace, Butetown. He’s in the phonebook.
TOM FLANAGAN HOUSE Owen and Gwen knock on the door.
GWEN: Hi, I’m DI Cooper, this is DS Harper. Could you spare a few minutes, please?
ELERI: Yeah, okay.
Eleri walks into the living room and alerts her father. She takes the remote from him. The door closes. Gwen and Owen enter the living room.
ELERI: Dad, visitors. It’s the police.
TOM FLANAGAN: Oh! Caught up with me at last, have you?
GWEN: I’m Gwen. This is Owen, he’s training. It’s just routine - we’re looking for eye witnesses to an incident at the railway station last night.
ELERI: We were here, weren’t we, Dad? Strictly Come Dancing finals.
OWEN: whispers Who won?
ELERI: That newsreader.
OWEN: Oh! She’s got legs up to her armpits!
TOM FLANAGAN: Would you like a cup of tea?
GWEN: I’d love one, thanks. (Eleri stands up.) Owen will give you a hand.
Owen gives Gwen a dirty look.
ELERI: This way.
Owen and Eleri leave the room.
TOM FLANAGAN: She’ll talk him to death out there.
Gwen sits in the chair next to Tom.
GWEN: He’ll give as good as he gets.
TOM FLANAGAN: She was right, though. We were in all last night, we wouldn’t have seen anything.
GWEN: Just for the record, you are Tom Erasmus Flanagan?
TOM FLANAGAN: My father was an Erasmus, his father before him.
GWEN: Now, that’s not a Welsh accent, is it?
TOM FLANAGAN: No. Lived here 66 years, and still sound like a barrow boy. (Gwen giggles.) I was evacuated during the war - 1941. The Germans bombing the hell out of the East End.
GWEN: Cardiff was being bombed as well as London, wasn’t it?
TOM FLANAGAN: We were taken out to the countryside. My mother packed me a suitcase
flashback to: Young Tom Flanagan in his travel wear and carrying his bags walking around lost.
TOM FLANAGAN: Big sister wrote my name on a card. ………They put me on a train at Paddington. Kept saying I had to go, had to be a good boy, telling me not to cry, and there was the pair of them were crying their eyes out! That was the last I saw of them, though I didn’t know that then, of course. Waving goodbye.
GWEN: How old were you?
TOM FLANAGAN: Eight.
GWEN: You must have been very, very frightened.
TOM FLANAGAN: Oh, I didn’t know a soul here. There was a mix-up. I kept my head down so much they forgot all about me. So they left me all on my own.
Quick flash of: Young Tom Flanagan alone at the station.
TOM FLANAGAN: Felt like the end of the world. I wandered down this tunnel, …
Quick flash of: Young Tom walks down the tunnel.)
TOM FLANAGAN: … totally lost. Forgotten. Looking for someone, anyone who’d look after me…….. “Why don’t they come for me?” I kept thinking. “No-one knows me. I’m lost.” They worked it out in the end, they came back for me, and I got taken in by a lovely couple, no kids of their own. And well, at the end of the war, I had no-one left in London. So I stayed here. I’m still here now. Just!
Gwen smiles at him. OUTSIDE Owen and Gwen head back to the car. Owen is irritated.
GWEN: I don’t get it. He was the boy at the station.
OWEN: I can’t comment - I was stuck in the kitchen with Motormouth, thanks to you.
GWEN: So was what I saw just a bit of him from years before? Sort of hanging around?
Gwen’s phone rings. Owen sees her reach for her phone and he sighs. She answers
RHYS: Gwen, uh, I’m just putting a wash on.
CUT TO GWEN’S FLAT
RHYS: You got any whites need doing?
Rhys kicks the stack of laundry on the floor.
GWEN: I don’t know. Just leave it, I’ll sort it out.
RHYS: No, no, no it’s no trouble. Just remind me, which drawer do the tablets go in?
GWEN: Ah, just leave it.
RHYS: Okay, so, are you in or out tonight?
GWEN: I don’t know.
GWEN: Im Sorry?
RHYS: All I’m asking is you in or out tonight?
GWEN: I don’t know.
RHYS: Well, I can live with all the Secret Squirrel stuff, but if you can’t even tell me if you’re coming home!
GWEN: Well, nagging isn’t helping.
RHYS: Right. Well, that’s me told.
GWEN: Aw, Rhys…
RHYS: I’m not staying in on the off chance. Dav’s having mates round. I’ll stay at his you do what you want.
Owen beeps the car horn.
She looks at her phone. Rhys hung up. In the kitchen, Rhys takes the tablet and can’t figure out which compartment it goes in. He sighs. Gwen opens the car door.
GWEN: All right!
She gets inside. Owen starts the car engine.
TORCHWOOD – HUB – Jack is at the computer looking at footage of the night before. He zooms in for an image of the runner and does a search. He finds a match.
JACK: Our friend with the alien machine in his pocket is … one … Sean Harris aka Bernie.
Gwen puts up a photo of SEAN HARRIS up on the board.
GWEN: And what he’s doing with an alien machine is anyone’s guess. Nineteen years old. String of convictions - burglary, shoplifting, credit cards …
Ianto walks in with food and coffee. He
holds the bag out and open for Jack to takes his meal.)
IANTO: Do warn me if he’s dropping in.
TOSHIKO: The theft conviction - he was stealing tires off a car when the owner turns up, gives him so much grief, he apologizes. Starts putting them back on again which is when the police show up! And here - shoplifting conviction. Bottle of vodka and three Pot Noodles.
Owen is playing a game machine
OWEN: A criminal mastermind. Got anywhere with that mystery object?
JACK: Alien, of course … Gorgeous nanotechnology, makes NASA look like Toys ‘R' US.
Gwen looks closely at the alien object.
OWEN: Well, you’ve really narrowed things down, haven’t you?
Owen finishes the game. Gwen picks up the object.
GWEN: At the station it was doing this. When I held it, it lit up and went mad.
OWEN: It’s not doing it now, is it?
TOSH: So. What next?
JACK: This kid, Bernie, where does he live?
IANTO: I believe estate agents pronounce it “Sploe”.
CUT TO: BURNIES Tosh knocks on the door. Gwen stands a distance behind her. Bernie’s mum answers.
TOSH: Hi, I’m looking for Bernie, is he in?
BERNIE’S MUM: Friends of his, are you?
TOSHIKO: Yes, I’m from …
BERNIE’S MUM: I’m his mother. He’s a robbing little bastard who
won’t set foot in here till he pays me the fifty quid he owes me!
Gwen laughs Bernies mum slams the door shut.
SNOOKER PLAYER: He’s barred.
CUT TO: ARCADE
KID IN ARCADE: He said he’d get me a iPod and he never. And he smoked my fags.
WOMAN IN SHOP: Wouldn’t piss on him if he was on fire.
Gwen and Toshiko wait as Owen brings over something to eat. They’re tired and bored
GWEN: Bernie Harris, the Scarlet Pimpernel of Splott.
TOSH: Tell me about it. Give me aliens any day.
OWEN: Nope, but I got four pasties for a pound - anyone?
Jack joins them.
GWEN: (mutters) If I wanted days like this I’d’ve stayed in the police.
TOSH: We did try, Jack.
Owen holds out a pasties bag for him. Jack sighs and leaves.they reluctantly follow him. Jack heads for the bridge he stops under the bridge.
The weeds are overgrown and its dark and out of view.
OWEN: What’s he gonna tell us? “Got it off an alien down the market.”
GWEN: Where are we going?
JACK: Back to the railway station. Controlled experiment. We replicate the original events as far as possible. Observe and analyze the results.
GWEN: What? I have to do that again?!
JACK: Someone does – any volunteers?
Jack turns around and tosses the alien device at Owen. Owen catches it.
Jack, Gwen and Toshiko continue to walking. Owen stops and looks at the device.
GWEN: We don’t know what it is, what it does.
GWEN: Jack, this could be dangerous.
OWEN: Uh, I don’t mean to be picky, but I think I can spot some flaws in this …
JACK: I’m sorry, I thought you gave up looking for a
19-year-old kid this morning? I figured maybe you were after something more exciting. A bit of a challenge.
Jack turns and continues on his way.
OWEN: This door-to-door stuff never gets us anywhere.
Owen looks at the device. It’s beeping.
OWEN: Guys, come here!
Jack, Toshiko and Gwen continue walking.
TOSH: (echo-y) Owen! Owen!
But Owen’s attention is completely on the device.
OWEN: Wait … !
He holds the device in his hands and looks at it. He gasps.
CUT TO: PAST EVENT UNDER THE BRIDGE Its night and raining. Thunder rumbles. Owen breathes heavily as he looks around . At the other end of the bridge, a woman runs into view. She leans against the wall She’s crying. She glances behind her and takes out her compact.
LIZZIE LEWIS: (echo-y) He’s a rotten bastard! My mam was right, his eyes are too close together! I said, “Just a dance,” but he wasn’t having a bar of it. I shouldn’t have gone outside with him, I should have known better!
OWEN: What’s your name?
The woman doesn’t answer her. Instead –
ED MORGAN: (echo-y) Lizzie! Lizzie Lewis …
A man steps out. He’s following Lizzie. Scared, Lizzie looks at him. The man moves closer to her. All Owen can do is watch the scene unfold before him.
LIZZIE LEWIS: (echo-y) You’re a bad one, Ed Morgan! The girls said not to go with you, and they were right.
Lizzie backs away from Ed Morgan. He continues to follow her.
ED MORGAN: (echo-y) Am I bad? Am I a bad boy? You’re a big girl now, Lizzie. You can make your own decisions. That’s why I like you. You’re not like the others. You don't follow the herd. You’re smart. Don’t you like it that someone can see how smart you are? Hmm? I can see you, Lizzie. The way you really are.
He holds her head and they kiss. Then, she starts struggling against him he won’t release her. She frees herself from him. He hits her across the face. She screams. He grabs her by her hair and takes out a knife. Owen is helpless to do anything but watch.
ED MORGAN: (echo-y) I don’t want to hurt you, I don’t …
LIZZIE LEWIS: (echo-y) I-I told my mam I’d be home by nine!
ED MORGAN: (echo-y) Shhhh …
He pulls her off to the dark end of the bridge. Owen watches them. He breathes heavily from her fear.
LIZZIE LEWIS: (echo-y) PLEASE! Oh, God, someone help me! Help me! Help me … !
Suddenly, it ends. The scene returns. Owen turns round and sees Jack and the others i Gwen rushes over
GWEN: Owen? Owen? you all right?
OWEN: (panting) She … she was so scared! I-I-I couldn’t … I couldn’t move! I couldn’t help her, I couldn’t help her!
Gwen takes the device from Owen. Owens breathing really heavily. CUT TO: TORCHWOOD HUB
JACK: The first time, it happens to Gwen. A boy, at the railway station.
Tosh is looking through a folders and. Gwen is putting up photos on the glass board.
GWEN: Who’s now in his 70s, alive and well, and living in Butetown. The second time it happens to Owen. Like me, you didn’t just see it, you felt emotions that weren’t yours.
OWEN: (nods) She was terrified.
Gwen looks at Jack.
JACK: The victim’s name was Lizzie. It was maybe 40, 45 years ago. Toshiko, do we know anything about her yet?
Toshiko pulls up the information from the computer.
TOSH: Elizabeth Lewis. Lizzie. Only child of Mabel Ann Lewis of Hafod Street. Died March 29th, 1963. Raped and murdered on Penfro Street, under the bridge. Seventeen years old.
OWEN: He killed her.
TOSH: No-one was brought to trial.
OWEN: She told her Mum she’d be home by nine. So what about Ed Morgan? That’s what she called him. “You’re a bad one, Ed Morgan”. Look him up.
TOSH: It’s kind of a common name.
GWEN: What’s the connection? Where did they come from? It’s like being haunted.
JACK: Quantum transducer! ( pointing the computer.) Look.
Tosh takes her glasses off and goes over,
TOSH: Wow. I’d kill to get one of those. Transducers convert energy from one form into another. They’re in headphones. They convert electrical signals into sound. And they’re in this device too converting quantum energy and amplifying it.
GWEN: Into ghosts?
JACK: Of course. It’s emotion. Human emotion is energy. You can’t always see it, or hear it, but you can feel it. Ever had deja vu? Felt someone “walk over your grave?” Ever felt someone behind you in an empty room? Well. There was. There always is.
GWEN: A ghost.
OWEN: What else have we got on Lizzie Lewis, what else have we got?
Tosh gets up and heads back to the computer.
TOSH: Um. 1963 - the records aren’t always that detailed.
OWEN: What about newspapers? Witness statements, coroners’ reports.
TOSH: What do you want me to find exactly?
OWEN: Well, there must be something!
JACK: For the case to be re-opened, you need new evidence, or a new witness.
OWEN: I saw it happen.
JACK: No, you didn’t! You weren’t there. You saw the echo of a moment, amplified by alien technology. So just tell me how that will play in court?
OWEN: Well, since when did we care about court?
JACK: Tomorrow we go looking for Bernie Harris and find out what he knows about this ghost machine. We do our job and find where this thing came from. Now, go home.

I was down the Old Wharf, in the bay. I seen this woman, with a bundle, something wrapped up. It was night time and she was putting it into the water all secret like. It was weird cos it was like I was her, somehow. She was scared, because she knew what she was doing was wrong. I knew, without seeing. It was her baby,
wrapped up. Dead. She hadn’t told anyone. Then she just ran away. And I realized, I knew her. She’s old now, but she lives up by the Catholic Church in Splott. So I goes up to see her. Told her what I’d seen. She give me money not to tell anyone else.

GWEN: I just - I just … I couldn’t … I couldn’t stop it.
CARDIFF CITY LIGHTS – NIGHT
BACK TO TORCHWOOD HUB – JACK’S OFFICE – NIGHT
Everyone meets in the office. Gwen looking really upset. She’s sitting in the seat with a blanket wrapped around her.
TOSH: He wanted to die. He would have found a way, no matter what.
OWEN: I screwed up, I know I did. But um … I didn’t kill him. I could of, but I didn’t.
GWEN: (crying) No. I did.
JACK: Tosh is right. It could have been anyone.
Tosh looks at the alien device.
TOSH: What about that?
JACK: The problem with seeing the future is you can’t just sit and look at it. Got to try and change things. Make it happen differently.
Jack picks up the device and looks at it. He shakes his head.
JACK: It’s not meant for us. All these ghosts. We’d be lost. Sun’s nearly up.
Jack holds the device out.
IANTO: Secure archives?
Jack nods. Ianto finishes his drink and takes the device from Jack. He turns and heads for the secured cabinet in the back of the room.
JACK: Come on.
Jack looks at Gwen. Gwen looks still in shock.
OUTSIDE JUST BEFORE DAWN
Jack and Gwen talk.
GWEN: I killed him. I’ve still got blood on my hands.
JACK: He killed himself. Come on, Gwen. Look - the sun’s coming up.
GWEN: A new day.
JACK: The city’ll be awake soon. All those people. (whispers) All that energy.
GWEN: All those ghosts.
JACK: We’re surrounded by 'em. We can’t see 'em, we can’t touch 'em … but they're there, all right. A million shadows of human emotion.
He leans in closer to her.
JACK: We’ve just got to learn to live with them.
Gwen is quiet. Jack puts his arm around her shoulders, turns her and they look out at the city. Gwen puts her head on his shoulder as they wait for the sun to rise.
