Torchwood #44: Rhys and Ianto’s Excellent Barbecue
Rhys is planning a lads’ night in. Barbie in the back yard, few tins, mates and bants. But the only person who turns up is Ianto – who hasn’t been invited. Hell is other people, especially when they’ve brought board games.
Something goes wrong. The two of them could be trapped together for eternity at a barbecue where the sausages never cook, and worse, the brewskis remain forever out of reach.

Years after she parted company with the Doctor, Jo returns to Llanfairfach to find the old mining town transformed into a thriving economy built on green technology. But when an encounter with a mysterious man leads her down the old mine shaft she discovers that beneath the town’s bright exterior lies a hive of wriggling pests – GIANT MAGGOTS! Torchwood’s Welsh setting makes it a natural fit for a sequel to iconic Third Doctor story The Green Death, and this script sees beloved characters from different eras collide. With the joyful optimism of Jo counterbalanced with Jack’s rather harsher outlook on life, the two have the makings of a great double act. AND THERE ARE MAGGOTS IN IT!
