Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper, "Torchwood Tracker," RexSummary:
The Tracker torments Gwen and Jack for information about Jack. Content notes:
violence (character death)
I should tell you Rex is bleeding because a pole passed through his body in the first moments of the miniseries--he's okay because of the Miracle Day curse.
The title of this video comes from the translation of the second song from Hungarian--somewhere around the ballpark of "Stupid Bird" in English.
Video is posted on Vimeo (for AO3). Summary of the video's contents below. Mediafire download available.On Tumblr.

GWEN He was just about to tell us!
REX Thanks? Anybody? Thanks?
GWEN And you shot him in the throat.
REX Hey, well, dead is dead.
Additional notes (originally presented as a footnote before this post was edited 6 February 2015): If you're new to this particular installment of Torchwood,
at the start of this miniseries humans are unable to die. Had Gwen died in this clip (not like she would,
since she's Russell T Davies's viewpoint character of the show), she would've bled until her body had no blood in it and/or lost the ability to think. It's because of this mysterious curse (and, apparently, someone knows who Torchwood is, but wanking about how people know
Torchwood when they're supposed to be a secret agency is another matter) the last 40% of Torchwood Three reunited to find out what is causing, according to this show's news junkets, "Miracle Day." Meanwhile Jack, who was made immortal by the Bad Wolf during his first stint on Davies's Doctor Who
, has lost his ability to stay immortal. If Jack gets killed before Miracle Day is solved, he's a goner.
