BBC Two (ended 2009)




  • Season 1 Episode 10: Out Of Time

  • The songs "Trouble" by Ray Lamontagne is playing when Owen takes Diane home for the first time. "I See You, Baby" by Groove Armada in the club where Gwen takes Emma, and
    "The Good Life" by Tony Bennett when Owen and Diane are dancing.

  • When Jack and John are at the hostel and they tune in the radio, the piece of music that plays is from the first movement (adagio sostenuto) of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata".

  • This is the only episode of the season where the producer and writer credits are shown before the opening credits (in the pre-credits section) rather than after.

  • The "lost" aircraft is a de Havilland DH 89 Dragon Rapide.

  • This is actually the first time that Captain Jack has mentioned that he is stuck in this time, indicating that whatever his method for getting to the present, he no longer has access to it.

  • The shop that Ianto takes the three time travellers to is not an Asda store like some believe. It is in fact the warehouse-sized Tesco supermarket in Western Avenue (near the Heath Hospital in Cardiff).

  • This is the first episode of Torchwood in which Jack has mentioned that he is from the future.

  • Season 1 Episode 9: Random Shoes

  • As established in the last few minutes of the episode, Eugene swallowed the Eye and Gwen then has the gravedigger remove it from his stomach it at the cemetery. However, earlier in the episode Gwen performs an autopsy of Eugene's body, and analyzing the stomach contents to determine time of death and the possibility of poisoning is a standard part of any autopsy. She should have found the Eye during the autopsy.

  • The registration number of the red Vauxhall car that knocks Eugene over and kills him is P759 MFL.

  • Other locations in Cardiff used in this episode were Ramon's Cafe on Salisbury Road (the cafe scene where Gwen orders ham, egg and chips) and The Prince Of Wales pub in Cardiff city centre (where Gwen and Linda have a drink).

  • It is revealed in this episode that the Doctor's Hand actually survived the events of "Day One" after Carys smashed the jar it was in on the floor.

  • The video Eugene had on loan from the video shop was the original BBC version of 'A for Andromeda' based on the book by Fred Hoyle.

  • The interior of National Museum of Cardiff stands in as the The Aberystwyth Natural History Museum during this episode, since such a building doesn't exist.

  • Season 1 Episode 8: They Keep Killing Suzie

  • The amnesia pill is called "Retcon". This term is also short for "retroactive continuity", which is the practice of deliberately changing previously established facts in a work of serial fiction.

  • Suzie is one of three characters of Torchwood to have died and then been brought back, Jack and Owen being the other two.

  • The ISBN quoted in the show does not match the book shown on screen. ISBN 0-19-860-0585 refers to the "Oxford Dictionary of Quotations". The edition of the Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson shown has the ISBN 0-571-108-644.

  • Time discrepancy: When Toshiko identifies their destination as Hedley Point, it's pitch-black outside. Moments later, Owen says they have "minutes", and it's a little light out, but the sun is still well below the horizon. When they arrive at the docks, it's bright day out, and judging from Gwen and Suzie's shadows, it's several hours after sunrise.

  • After Jack pulls the glove out of storage, just after he says " lay at the bottom of the bay till we dredged it up," there is a bug or piece of dirt on the camera lens. You can spot it easily near the top of Jack's shirt as he moves.

  • The song used in the final scene is "Gorecki" by Lamb.
    The song on the radio when Gwen and Suzie are in the car is "Soleil, Soleil" by Nana Mouskouri.
    The song playing in the Wolf Club when Jack, Owen and Gwen are looking for Luci is "Red Is The New Black" by Funeral for a Friend.

  • When Gwen first attempts to use the Resurrection Gauntlet on Suzie, there are flashbacks to "Everything Changes" (where Suzie shoots Jack and then kills herself).
