Meeting the Doctor had turned Jack’s life around. He’d gone from rogue Time Agent and conman to saviour of the universe. It seemed only fitting that he should do something for the Doctor in return.
He’d worked his way through the ranks of Torchwood, enduring the abuse, slave labour and everything else they threw at him.
He’d hoped to change Torchwood from within, guide it into the new millennium from behind the scenes. Instead there’d been a massacre at Three, and Armageddon at One. Through its own actions, Torchwood had wiped itself out, leaving a clean slate.
Time to rebuild.
