Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: Prompt at the end.







Torchwood had been called to deal with a disturbance at the castle. The reason wasn’t clear, the police were oddly reluctant to go into detail, but when the team arrived it quickly became obvious.



Jack approached the pair of tourists with a stern expression on his face.



“You shouldn’t be here, you’ll have to leave.”



“Oh dear! Terrible sorry, not mean to bother folks. We not from here.”



“Yeah, I got that.”



The blue skin and tentacles were a dead giveaway.



“This not Rigellia?”



“No, it’s Earth.”



The alien glared at its companion.



“See? Wrong turn!”



“Map upside down. Sorry.”



The End



A/N2: Title used was ‘We're Not From Here’


Comments

I'm not real convinced the show's writers actually had much in the way of imagination to let run free. Something like this to break up the normal angst would have been great.
Yeah, it often seems that way. When you think of the uunlimited potential of the show's central idea - a Rift in space and time through which things and beings tend to fall - then look at the stories the writers came up with... Admittedly some things would have been difficult to pull off on a TV show budget,but even so they barely scratched the surface.

Thank you!
