During the cleanup after the Battle of Canary Wharf, some people from U.N.I.T. see Ianto Jones come back to life. They decide to find out how he does that. When he is finally rescued by Torchwood 3, he realizes that Jack Harkness could use his help.
Why You Should Read This:
At several places in this, Ianto tells Jack, “I am old.” He is a probably several-thousand-year-old Immortal (of the Highlander type) who is a different person than the Ianto of canon. He sees Jack as a youngster who has a lot to learn. The author handles the change in the dynamic between Jack and Ianto very well.
