A thought...  
Rewatching Torchwood episode 2.07, and it suddenly occurs to me...

Why autopsy Owen's body when they already know the cause of death? O_o...

Exactly what I thought. Also, that whole injection thing? Complete crap. His blood either isn't there (which makes no sense but whatever) or is not flowing (also makes no sense because all the blood would go to his legs when he stands and hence, no walkies) but either way injecting him with a drug would NOT WORK.

LOL. Sci-fi's fun to pick apart. XD

Well technically that could work. When you embalm someone you do inject the embalming solution, but usually through a pump into specific arteries. And I think you're supposed to massage the body to make sure it flows through okay. < /wannabe mortician>

Still, dramatic licensing and all that, it does work if you don't look into it too closely XD and I suppose that goes with the autopsy thing to. Unless that's a standard Torchwood practice? Hrmm...

Another thing I noticed, Jack's waking up gasping in the car after the Death-comes-through-Owen scene, b'wah?? Point?

Point? You want a point? o_0 Dude, just look at all the pretty people and forget about the plot (it seems to work for most sci-fi).

I can only think of the 'point' after having watched this episode more than once ;) but you're right, who needs one in the face of such pretty!?

If it could, it should have just latched onto Jack and sucked the life outta him 13 times XD

lmao- love Tosh's line about going on something Gwen googled! haha. Pure class.

Alas, no Faith. Though that would have kicked some serious arse!

I thought that too, then I tought maybe thay wanted to make sure there were no alien bugs calling Owen Mummy. Or perhaps it's just standard practice.

I figure it must be the latter reason. Though it could be fun if it were to make sure there "no alien bugs calling Owen Mummy" XD XD

LMFAO! I never really logically thought about that... ^_^

It was just a really random moment! I think all things considered, we were all far too focussed/distressed about everything else! lol

My mom asked me the exact same question. I don't know. Personally I just watch sci fi to watch it, doesn't mean I have to understand what the characters do. ;)

Well yeah, which is the glory about sci-fi, but still... I doubt I'd have 'noticed' enough to say if this wasn't a rewatch for me! hehe

Thats what I was thinking as well also what about a bullet? It didn't go right through and there was no mention of them taking it out.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 2o5 \\ Killer Ianto up agaics_whitewolf on February 28th, 2008 07:14 pm (UTC)
Guess they didn't have to :S take the bullet out I mean. Not like it was going to kill him XD lolol

I think people who are murdered are always cut open and examined - just to find out all the facts.

Plus, I think Jack just wanted to see him naked.

What's not to know about a gunshot wound to the chest? Really!

But yeah, any excuse eh? XD
