that they have something from the very beginning, when Jack
introduces Ianto to Gwen when he says "and he looks good in a suit"
to which Ianto replies (with a smile) "Careful, that's harassment
sir." But there is an easy banter, a teasing way about it...
then in the second episode when they are all discussing Jack's sex
life over chinese food, Tosh says Owen think's Jack is gay, but she
thinks he'll shag anything thats gorgeous and Ianto says "And I
don't care" very quickly, almost too quickly.
Obviously in both those scenes he still has Lisa, so is probably not
involved with Jack in anyway but maybe it implies the undertones are

But, Jack seemed happily suprised by Ianto's suggestion at the end
of "They keep killing Susie" so I don't think you (or I) missed any
overt clues regarding the relationship between Jack and Ianto.
And I agree, I'd love to see Ianto more, he barely appears in a lot
of the episodes

flirting with Ianto all along, Ianto has been enjoying
it without taking it seriously.

too. I put that down to more flirting on Jack's part

the show and she asked me, "Does Ianto ever get to
speak?" That was in "Combat", where I thought he had
more lines than usual!
So what is Ianto's best line? I rather like "Of
course, bananas are far more interesting," but he does
have some other lovely ones. Hmm. No, I retract that,
I think my favourite might be "gloves come in pairs".
And the classic: "I still have my stopwatch."

love his formal manner combined with his cute sense of
humour. And those great Welsh vowels. I loved
"Cyberwoman" as an episode but I think it was
"Countricide" where I really came to love Ianto as
both a man and a hero.

> __.I have
clips). I'm hoping to get some help from my cousin to put them together
(not to mention how I'll upload them to the net!).
But some ideas I have are:
Song title: "Slime Creatures from Outer Space"
Artist: Weird Al Yankovic
vid style: funny
Comments: Come on, with lyrics like "things just haven't been the same,
since the flying saucers came" and "They were fuzzy, they were mean,
biggest heads I've ever seen". It's a natural.
Years and years ago, I thought this song would be fun for an *X-files*
vid, but it's even more appropriate for *DW*.
Song title: Baby Grand
Artist: Billy Joel & Ray Charles
vid style: serious but not angsty
Comments: Who (or what) is the ONE constant in the Doctor's life? What
he's *always* relied on? Why the TARDIS of course. So I'd like to take
the Joel/Charles duet about a piano being the love of their lives and
use it for DW.
By the bye-- anyone who can *remember* good TARDIS scenes, feel free to
e-mail me on or off list. I plan on using McCoy's scene in the McGann
movie, as well as other scenes (both interiors and exteriors) but I'm
having a hard time remembering specific episodes.
Two scenes I'm looking for-- Davison standing behind the console,
nothing happens, he hits the console with his hand, and THEN it starts
going up and down. I definately remember it, but I can't figure out the
ep. And the Colin Baker ep where we find out the TARDIS has seat belts
(he and Peri hook-up to the console using something that looks like a
So-- good ideas?
