Here we are, then. 36,200 words later, the pre war, war time and post war narrative of The Torchwood Girls is finished. Thank you very much for sticking with me, Jack, the boys and the girls, over the year it's taken me to write this.
If you want to start at the beginning, follow this link:
In the autumn of 1913, Captain Jack Harkness is alone in the Torchwood Cardiff Hub, with all his fifty-first century senses wide open, when he receives a telepathic message.
Attempting to draw what he’s received, from his mind’s eye, Jack ends up with a lot of circles and lines. Shapes he last saw thirty one years ago, on Post-It notes, haphazardly stuck all over the TARDIS console.
If you want to read Part 20 and the epilogue, follow this link:
It’s November the 22nd, 1918, early Friday morning. No-one else is in, yet. Jack’s trying to distract himself from the thought that tomorrow is the anniversary of his being admitted to Craiglockhart, and is actually doing some paperwork for once.
