When [[Toshiko Sato]] unintentionally stopped the Hub's movement through [[time]] to avoid it being sent to [[the Sanctified]] by a [[Rift storm]], Myfanwy was trapped out of sync with time with the Hub and Tosh. Myfanwy saved Tosh from falling to her death when the [[Harrowkind]] attacked, and carried her to the top of the tower. Myfanwy was subsequently returned with Tosh and the Hub.

She was "house-trained", never attacking a member of staff, never making a mess or bringing in the local sheep she killed, and only ate food treated with a certain "barbecue sauce" which [[Suzie Costello]] had developed.

The name "Myfanwy" was initially a nickname created by the ''[[Torchwood (TV series)|Torchwood]]'' cast, as shown in an episode {{which}} of ''[[Torchwood Declassified]]''. The name was later used in the pseudo-narrative [[Torchwood website|''Torchwood'' website]], which featured an instant messaging conversation between [[Ianto Jones|Ianto]] and [[Owen Harper|Owen]] about the pterodactyl's feeding habits. Until 2015 it was not used in-narrative. This changed with the release of ''[[Fall to Earth (audio story)|Fall to Earth]]'' in which the name was finally used within the story.
+
* ''[[Torchwood Declassified]]'' mentions that the Pteranodon was nicknamed "Myfanwy" by the cast. This is later shown to be the case in-universe, when the Torchwood site featured an IM conversation between Ianto and Owen about Myfanwy's feeding habits. ([[WEB]]: ''[[Torchwood website|torchwood.org.uk]]'')
+
* Jack refers to the beast as a dinosaur but it is not. Pteranodons were pterosaurs, flying reptiles, while dinosaurs only lived on the land.
The website also gave additional details about the creature. Myfanwy came and went from the Hub as she pleased, entering through a large opening in the ceiling; [[Jack Harkness]] trained her well enough so that she returned to the Hub upon hearing a signal from his wristwatch.
