Soon after, she begins to regret giving in to her curiosity, when she meets Captain Jack Harkness.

Episode 2: Day One
It is Gwen's first day on the job, and it's not going very well.

Except Jack, who has witnessed the creatures causing this, almost a century ago.

Episode 6: Countrycide

So she asks for help from Mary, the only person who knows, but first, Tosh has to get her into Torchwood.
