Torchwood - Greeks Bearing Gifts

Just finished re-watching Greeks Bearing Gifts, and it's my favorite episode so far. I seem to recall in the past I considered it my favorite in all of season 1, I'll probably still feel that way. It has flaws - some terrible lines, and a lot of the handling of Mary's character is pretty skeevy. But I feel for Tosh in this episode more than I've felt for any character up to this point.

I'm sure I've said this before, but Gwen at the telling Tosh that she's not in a position to make judgments is a strong contrast to the fannish image of Gwen as completely hypocritical about her own flaws. I don't know how common that image still is, but back when I first watched Torchwood it was ubiquitous.
