Episode Summary

Professor Ian Hood (Patrick Stewart) and his bodyguard Rachel Young (Ashley Jensen) have been tasked with investigating cases of science abuse throughout the UK. When a police chase leads to a field where almost 30 fetuses are buried, Hood suspects that "Gepetto" - a rogue clone maker - is at work in the country. They soon discover that not only must they try to find and stop Gepetto, but they must also locate a young pregnant girl who is carrying one of the cloned fetuses, and whose life is in danger from a complication with the pregnancy. They are not the only ones searching for the girl, though. One of Gepetto's men, a millionaire, and the girl's abusive ex-boyfriend all have their own reasons for wanting to find her.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Doug: Is Special Branch doing drivers now?
        Rachel: I'm not his driver, I'm his bodyguard.
        Doug: Why does an old bloke need a bodyguard?
        Rachel: That old bloke is a science troubleshooter for the government. He specializes in physics... and making himself unpopular.

      • Ian: Even if he had survived the genetic mutation, even if he had been perfect in every sense, this would never have been the boy you knew. He would have been some other, different child. Alexander is not the product of his DNA. He is the sum of every day you spent with him, every meal his mother cooked for him, every story you read him, every ball you threw for him to catch, every day at the beach, every night at the cinema.

        I am only very sorry, Mr. Gifford, that you had to find out this way; the soul is more than its constituent chemical parts.

      • Rachel: Before you disturb me, I think you should know that I'm filling out these forms because I shot at a man today.
        Man: Why did you shoot him?
        Rachel: Because he disturbed me. Now piss off!

      • Rachel: You obviously don't have a gynecologist.
        Ian: I don't have anything that would interest one.

      • Ashley: I discharged a firearm at a moving vehicle; do you have any idea what I'm gonna have to go through now?
        Ian: Look, I will tell them that you took the appropriate action with respect to the circumstances, and that, you looked just like Lara Croft.

      • Rachel: Thanks, Doug. I owe you one.
        Doug: So... maybe we could have a drink later?
        Rachel: I said I owed you one; I didn't say I'd give you one.
