Review of chapter "Old Bones" from JJDudeman
Oh, bravo. Way to acknowledge the wrongness of that horribly conceived and badly executed Zack twist and redeem it. Sorta. Unfortunately Torchwood seems so often to have that bitter undertone - you've captured that well here. And come to think of it, let's pretend we don't know that Torchwood is a freaking death sentence . Not the point. Angela was a good choice, the classic fairy episode tied in well. You got more artsy with your style, and it was almost too much for me -- but I think the story is much much better for it. It fits with both the wrongness of the Zack scenario and the otherworldly atmosphere of that fairy episode. Well done, a risk that paid off.

Only not a ten for a mild lack of coherancy :)

Review of chapter "Old Bones" from MarcusSLazarus
A plot brilliant in its simplicity; great job, to say the least.
Not only is the bond between Angela and Jack excellently developed- particularly the idea of Jack having been a friend of Angela’s mother in her youth; a neat way to avoid ANY possible ‘romance’ in their interaction while still giving them a believably deep connection-, but your idea about Gormogon’s true nature as a non-corporeal psychopath was excellent, and the twist with Angela’s ‘insight’ being the result of a childhood encounter with the ‘fairies’ was another interesting touch.
Add in the rather moving final scene with Parker and Angela- to say nothing of the slight drama of Jack and Angela having to save Booth from Gormogon-, and you DEFINITELY had some interesting ideas here...
Any chance of a sequel?
Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing how Zack interacts with the rest of Torchwood- particularly with “Children of Earth” in his potential future-, but I’m open to possibilities (And I’m still waiting for more from “Physics of the Spin” anyway)...

Review of chapter "Old Bones" from starshinedown
So lovely and poetic. I love, really love, this blend of the two worlds. It surprises me not at all that Angela is someone special--even more special than we know from the show.
Thank you for sharing!

Review of chapter "Old Bones" from Nuala
This was excellent. I really liked Bones until they made sweet Zach into a killer. I stopped watching after that. This was a great way of reconciling his original character with what he became - and then save him. I thought you did a fine job with characterization. Clearly this is Jack before the debacle of Children of Earth - but really nice story. Thanks!

Okay, this may make me cave and give Torchwood a chance. Love this story, we don't get enough Angela-centric fic! :)

Review of chapter "Old Bones" from ianquest
Utterly brilliant! I lost track of Bones a long time ago, even although I enjoyed it when I watched it, but this had enough information to allow me to follow the story, and the characterisation was brilliant. You managed to blend the two universes excellently, and portrayed Jack wonderfully well; too many people fall for the surface flirtiness and humour, and miss the carefully-hidden thoughtfulness and dedication. I especially liked the get-out-of-jail-almost-free card you gave Zack; he'll fit right in with the rest of the damaged but still fighting survivors at Torchwood Three.
Speaking of which, you WILL be writing more in this particular universe, right? Right? (Insert puppy eyes and pouting here) ;)

Review of chapter "Old Bones" from Alinora
This is a really cool way of combining the two shows and I enjoyed the fact that Angela was able to remember everything and read Jack so well.
