Publisher's summary[]

Andy Davidson's been ordered to watch over a local businessman. Everything's always gone right for him, and Andy's long wondered why.

Owen joins him on the stakeout. He knows something – the businessman's attracted Torchwood's attention, and tonight, the two of them are going to take him down. But will luck be on their side?


To be added.



  • Owen and Andy go to the now abandoned Queen Victoria Hospital.
  • Torchwood have been recently moving in Torchwood technology into the hospital to use it as a makeshift base.
  • Owen tells Andy that due to him no longer being able to sweat, the only reason he changes his clothes is to help him remember what day it is.
  • Andy finds what he describes as a 'fridge-freezer' in the basement, comparing it to the obelisk from 2001: A Space Oddessy.
  • Andy's reference to monkeys dancing around the obeslisk causes the alien to transform itself into a cymbal playing toy monkey, as an attempt to blend in.


  • This story was recorded remotely.
