idea why it was veering out of control until they'd landed and he saw Jack.

Again, how did he know? AFAIK, they weren't even aware Jack had died,
although the fact they high-tailed it out of there without even checking was
a bit nasty. Sometimes DW reminds me of Red Dwarf, which often has to be
watched with a grain of salt. There were so many inconsistencies it was
sometimes amusing. (Still, it's tied with DW/TW for my favorite SF series -
I even went to a convention last year and met Danny, Chris & Robert. Really
