Revision as of 13:11, July 23, 2012


To the Last Man was the third story in the second series of Torchwood. It was notable for featuring Toshiko Sato as the main character, as she was in the first series story Greeks Bearing Gifts.


Once a year, for a single day, Tommy Brockless is defrosted in the Torchwood hub to make sure he's still working. He is kept alive until the day he is needed, when ghosts appear at a hospital and it's clear that the time has come.
