At my age, you think I'd know better than to write fanfic for a programme that hasn't even finished filming yet, never mind been aired! Sometimes, though, the characters just won't shut up in your head until you've let them had their say on 'paper'. A follow-up of sorts to my "Terms of Employment" – there's no direct connection between the two, but this picks up on something minor from that fic and plays with it a bit more. For those unfamiliar with some of the more notorious produce of south-western England, the definition of scrumpy can be found here.
Here be spoilers for the existence of Torchwood-the-show; other than that, only for character names and a vague description of the car... which is pretty much all of the available spoilage there is so far, now that I come to think of it. All else is just random speculation.
Many thanks to jwaneeta for encouragement, beta-reading and Yank-picking! Any remaining weirdnesses are all mine.
