    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • John Barrowman: The Weevils come out of this episode kind of on the good side, because we actually don't know that much about them. I have a little theory, maybe the fighting that we knew in episode one is actually a result of Combat because Combat has been going on for a while so the aggression of the Weevil in episode one ripping the guys neck, he though he was going to be attacked so he struck out. Perhaps they're a calm race.

      • Andy Goddard: It's the first time we've seen Owen in the context of another male figure. A peer if you like, someone his own age. I mean there is Ianto if you like, but Ianto has kind of got one foot in the shadows. His relationship with Jack is an avuncular kind of relationship, we haven't seen him in context with another alpha male, there was a nice simmering testosterone energy.

      • Richard Stokes: I arrived on the set when they were doing the scene of the crowds chanting from the balcony and I walked into that big room with all those people chanting, and it was the most terrifying thing that I'd seen being filmed. There was just something about the mob mentality when it turns and goes nasty that is probably scarier than anything else.

      • Russell T. Davies: I think the fights with Owen at the pub, at the bar is, is, is...I actually went and found that fight director and told him he was a genius, which I've never done before with a fight director because you stay away from men like that.

      • Russell T. Davies: One of the places you find Owen is friendless, and that's a very dark place to be, and I think that's true of a lot of the Torchwood team; they don't have someone to talk to.

      • Andy Goddard: There is a King Kong element, sympathy for the Weevil.

        King Kong is the name of a fictional giant ape from the legendary Skull Island, who has appeared in several works since 1933. He is portrayed as a misunderstood giant, transported from his home against his will who lashes out only in confusion and self-defence.
