Summary: Do doughnuts constitute a threat?

Jack set a box of ordinary-looking doughnuts on the boardroom table.

“Whatever you do, don’t eat these.”

“Why not?” Gwen asked.

“They came through the Rift. Owen took them to run tests; now he’s vanished and there’s an extra doughnut.”

“Owen might be a doughnut?”


The team eyed the doughnuts uncertainly.

“Become what you eat,” Ianto said slowly. “Mam used to warn me about that. I never believed her.”

They were still warily watching the doughnuts when Owen walked in. Everyone jumped up, hugging him.

“You’re not a doughnut!” exclaimed Tosh.

Owen stared at them, baffled. “You’re all nuts!”
