  • Gwen Cooper is now known as Gwen Williams. In fact, the closing credits of this and succeeding episodes establish that her name is not changed, and this has been confirmed by off-screen sources including Eve Myles. In addition, she is referred to on screen as Gwen Cooper in DW: Journey's End.

If you'd like to talk about narrative problems with this story — like plot holes and things that seem to contradict other stories — please go to this episode's discontinuity discussion.
  • The Ghostmaker realises Owen has no breath as he is dead. He was killed in Reset but was revived in Dead Man Walking
  • Jack Harkness was working on behalf of an (as-yet) unidentified organisation in the 1920s when he was assigned to infiltrate a travelling circus in order to investigate the Night Travellers. Although he never encountered them, by coincidence film footage of him got mixed in with footage of the Night Travellers. As he did not become immortal until after he left the Time Agency, it is more likely he was working for Torchwood at the time. Also, in TW: Fragments an account of events from his mission searching for the Night Travellers can be read in the first of the handwritten reports prepared for his Torchwood file. Though if it was Torchwood, it seems odd that he did not properly answer Ianto's question.
  • Although this is never addressed on screen, the closing credits for this episode established that Gwen continues to be known as Gwen Cooper, and not Gwen Williams.


  • From Out of the Rain takes place after TWN: SkyPoint.
  • From Out of the Rain takes place before TW: Adrift.
