Overture was the final comic story to be published in Torchwood Magazine.

Summary Edit

As a group of hostile aliens break into the Torchwood Three hub, the Commodore hands Jack Harkness a box. Opening it, he gets sent into the future, and is given instructions on just how to handle the aliens.

Plot Edit

Jack's sitting in a club on 7 August 1941, watching around for possible aliens, when the band uncover their true appearance, and suck all life out of the singer. As they then proceed to attack everyone in sight, Jack escapes and runs to the Hub where he finds, much to his annoyance, that everyone had already left — nearly everyone. As the aliens break through the last layer of security and enter the main room of the Hub, the Commodore hands Jack a safe.

Opening it, he watches over events of either his past or future. On New Year's Eve of soon-to-be 2067, in a bar on the planet Zog, the other Jack is given instructions: he must get his 1941 self to sing a song, which will effectively "switch off" the aliens. He is given a rift-safe thought safe, which is what had brought Jack back to witness this.

Back in Cardiff, Jack learns, to his horror, that his singing does not "disactivate" them as he'd been told. It kills them, leaving only eight pools of blood — he'd been tricked.
