    So here's my question: While Jack is in the bathroom after being poisoned on the plane, he says "Every bug in the world is probably out to get me. I haven't developed any resistance.". Correct me if I'm wrong, but Jack came from the 51st Century and first met the doctor when he was in his mid to late 30's. He grew up as a normal person and had an immune system. He didn't become immortal until AFTER he was resurrected by Rose Tyler from Dr. Who when she absorbed the energy from the Tardis. How did the writers of the script overlook that major fact??

    I wouldn't necessarily say that Jack's line is wrong. The bugs from the 51st Century will be nothing like the bugs from the 21st century. He doesn't have any resistance developed for current bugs in the world right now

    Great and interesting episode but still I kind of miss the excitement of the original series.

    I'd say this was nothing special, but it was good entertainment and fun. The dialogue was sharp, the humour worked ("What kind of a getaway car is this?", "I'm Welsh!" etc.) and there really weren't any dull moments.

    I was surprised Hank from HankMed (Royal Pains) wasn't on the plane to fix Jack with all his kitchen utensils,other than that the episode was progressing very slowly.
