Ianto meets a time-traveller who wants Ianto to travel back in time to get some technology from Torchwood One. With the knowledge of Torchwood Three’s destruction, Tosh and Owen’s deaths, Ianto’s own demise and Jack’s abandonment of Earth, he is exploitable. However, he is also visited by Rhys and John Hart.
It’s written by Gareth, so you know you’re in for a wild ride. He’s the number 1 Ianto fan and loves writing for him. He gives the character even more depth and gives you glimpses of what’s really hiding under his butler persona and suit.
It’s Torchwood, so it’s both happy and sad and at times you fight with yourself over the outcome you want for Ianto. The twist is satisfying and leaves you wishing they had done more with the story than a comic in the TW magazine.
