Background information[]

  • According to CIA files read aloud by Esther Drummond in this episode, Gwen Cooper joined the Torchwood Institute in October 2006. This date conflicts with the setting of Cooper's first appearance in "Everything Changes", which is set sometime after the Battle of Canary Wharf in 2007. This may be a metafictional reference to the premiere of Torchwood on 22 October 2006.
