Torchwood One – we defend the British Empire. We keep everyone safe. For yourown good.

When humanity’s threatened, Yvonne Hartman is required.

The Law Machines

The Law Machines are based upon the design for the War Machines. WOTAN is able to take them over based on this. (The War Machines)
Yvonne once again intimidates an elected official into obeying her. (One Rule)
Yvonne tells Fiona she has tea with the Queen once a week. (One Rule, New Girl)
Tommy has a new appreciation for Yvonne’s leadership, having survived Rachel Allan’s regime. (Uprising)
WOTAN sees the necessity of having Yvonne Hartman’s insight and skills, informing his slaves that “Yvonne Hartman is required.” (The War Machines)

Blind Summit

This story is another prime example of how technology from the Brett Archive has caused trouble for Torchwood over the years. (The Law Machines)
Ianto is taught how to make the perfect cup of coffee. (Everything Changes, Dead Man Walking)
Ianto remembers events he had forgotten under the influence of retcon. This would later be done by Gwen Cooper, although Gwen was able to do it on her own, without any external influence. (Everything Changes)
Kieran Frost, Torchwood One’s Head of Security, is mentioned. (New Girl, Through the Ruins)

9 to 5

The temp workers were created with technology from the Brett Archive salvaged by Blind Summit. (Blind Summit)
WOTAN is still saying, “Yvonne Hartman is required.” Yvonne is still calling WOTAN “Will”. (The Law Machines)
Ianto briefly loses faith in Yvonne at the end of the story, much as he later would with Jack Harkness. (Cyberwoman, Broken)
