TW 2-04: Meat

A Guide to Classic Who references (and other references) including in Torchwood episodes.

[OLD] - Things that first appeared in the classic Doctor Who series (or the film.)  Episode List.
[No direct references to classic Who this time, sorry.]

For context, the following are also covered:
[1ST] -  The first appearance of things in Doctor Who series, including Torchwood.
[TW] - Things that first appeared previosuly in Torchwood.
[NEW] - Things that first appeared previously in the new Doctor Who series.

Ongoing References:

  • [NEW]  Torchwood - An organisation created by Queen Victoria after the events of "Tooth and Claw" (Doctor Who series 2)..  Torchwood-1 (London) was destroyed by the events of "Army of Ghosts"/"Doomsday" (Doctor Who series 2).  This is Torchwood-3 (Cardiff), who first appeared in "Everything Changes(the first episode of Torchwood.)  They are all made of meat.

  • [NEW]  Captain Jack Harkness - Former Time Agent, con-man and companion to the Tenth Doctor.  Head of Torchwood-3.  He was made immortal accidentally by the Bad Wolf entity (Rose Tyler) in the Doctor Who episode "The Parting of the Ways."  Like the other Torchwood members he is made of meat, unlike the others his will probably grow back if you harvested it.

  • [TW]  Amnesia Pill -  A drug that Torchwood Three uses to remove memories of events.   It was used on Gwen in "Everything Changes."  The pill is not made of meat, it is made of Compound B67 "Retcon," which was found in the blood of victims in "They Keep Killing Suzie."

From this episode:

  • [1ST]  Unnamed alien - First appearance of this creature.  It is made of meat.

The Time Crash blog was created to help New Who fans understand Classic Who references - and to know if something isn't a reference but a new idea.  If there's a reference I missed or a subject that you feel needs more explaining, please comment.
