For Torchwood team avoiding serious consequences is more than ever a full-time job but in this case it also means having a jelly creature in custody that can release a deadly electric shock.

Even Captain Jack Harkness is at risk with an opponent who knows his secrets and the solution to the problem could be connected to a funeral that’s quite out of the ordinary with mysterious pallbearers.
