Torchwood Episode 36:
The Categories Of Life


As the ill are moved into camps all across the world, the United Nations announces that life has been redefined into three categories: Category 1 (the unrecoverable), Category 2 (the ill who will heal) and Category 3 (the healthy). In California, Rex and Esther are joined by Dr Juarez as they infiltrate one of the camps in an effort to discover the fate of the Category 1 patients. In Wales, Gwen and Rhys go undercover in an attempt to rescue her ailing father. And as Oswald prepares to speak at a massive “Miracle Rally”, Jack gives him one last opportunity for redemption.
