A study in small scale bittersweet heartbreak with world endangering consequences. Set early in series 1 so Ianto's in maximum self-repression mode, and again the overall atmosphere evokes the current real life climate. Its not a depressing release as such but depending on audio effects you, you might finish this one feeling more blah then when you started it. Top marks to Laura Aikman and Joshua Manning on their performances though.
Small personal LOL from the Extras "Coffee Boy" is an acceptable nickname according to Gareth David Lloyd

I gave it a 5 (rounded up). I really enjoyed this. It did a fantastic job keeping me guessing and engaged with the story because I was so curious where it was going. I also like what it did with the characters (or didn't do, as the case may be) and they were very easy to connect with.
I was very confused at the start of this story. I hadn't read the description before hand and went in cold. I was trying to figure out why Ianto wasn't with the team, and then I pieced it together. I'm so glad I did it that way. And the villain did it all for love. Just so damn good.

Just finished this one. Wow. Saw the resolution coming, but it was good enough that that didn't matter. Really cool concept, and I hope Alfie Shaw writes some more Torchwood at some point. Having listened to Broken, and assuming this comes at some point in series 1, the ending of 'my friends' was slightly bittersweet. Really good story overall.
