What's it called?

"Fragments"

Who's it credited to?

What do we know?

An accident causes the team to 'flashback' and remember the events that lead them to join Torchwood...

Major guest stars?

Kai Owen is back playing "Rhys", Amy Manson is "Alice Guppy", and Noriko Aida appears as "Toshiko's mother".

Rest of the best

Heather Craney ("Emily Holroyd"); Julian Lewis Jones ("Alex"); Simon Shackleton ("Bob"); Claire Clifford ("Milton"); Andrea Lowe ("Katie"); Skye Bennett ("Little girl"); Gareth Jones ("Security guard"); Richard Lloyd-King ("Doctor"); Catherine Morris ("Nurse"); Selva Rasalingam (Psychiatrist") and Paul Kasey ("Blowfish" / "Weevil")

Surprise me, spoiler boy

Apparently Captain John Hart (James Marsters) returns during the dying moments of this episode, which leads into the events of the season finale, "Exit Wounds".

Reviewing the reviews

I've only seen the one review, inside the Radio Times, and it's hardly informative. After reading it a couple of times, I'm still not entirely sure if the reviewer, Mark Braxton, likes/dislikes the episode!

When's it on?

Tonight on BBC Two, from 9pm. It's repeated next Tuesday, at 7 o'clock.

What about America?

"Fragments" is expected to air on the BBC America network Saturday 12th April, from 9pm. The BBC America schedule can be found here. The episode will also be available in glorious High Definition - on HD-Net - from April 28th.

Look to the future...

The second season finale - "Exit Wounds". Captain John Hart is back, and he's brought somebody with him! Danger is around every corner, especially for Jack Harkness. Can his team rally together in time to save his life, and everybody else's in Cardiff city? And most importantly, will all the team survive?

Excitement level?

***1/2 - An intriguing concept, but it'd have been nice to see something like this earlier in the series run - maybe during the enigmatic first season? Still, the preview at the end of the previous episode looks very exciting and action packed; and Myfanwy the flying dinosaur is back, so what's not to love?

BBC Three Preview

The final episode, "Exit Wounds", won't show on BBC Three. It'll premiere on BBC Two exclusively on Friday April 4th.
