Lugging the heavy body into the Hub was difficult enough, but they still needed to get it downstairs and into a cell before it woke up and decided to make a meal of them. That was easier said that done.

The bull Weevil was a massive brute, the biggest Ianto had ever seen; so aggressive it’d taken a double dose of tranquilliser to subdue it for transport.

“We should’ve called someone in to help,” Ianto groaned as he and Jack set their burden down to open the door to the stairs. “Times like this I wish we had automatic doors.”

The End


They will have the doors when \ianto and \Tosh get to work. Mabe Rhys or Andy could help with the lifting
Automatic doors aren't too practical in Torchwood. If there's a lockdown they could either be left stuck open or closed.

They do need an extra pair of hands sometimes though.

Thank you!

Put it in next year's budget Ianto. And if Jack says no just remind him that less time locking away weevils means more time for "other" things.

I'm sure Jack will see the benefits.

Thank you.
