Torchwood Episode 21:
A Day In The Death


Suspended from duty until Martha can determine exactly what has happened to him, Owen's life -- such as it is -- is becoming increasingly unbearable. He's unable to eat, drink, or even heal himself, which means that any injuries he suffers will be permanent. He can't sleep or have sex. His entire existence seems pointless. But when Torchwood detects massive energy readings from the heavily-guarded mansion of an elderly collector of alien artefacts, it may take a dead man to get to the bottom of things.
