Recced because: Yvonne is one of my favorite minor characters in New Who, and here we see her during her very first encounter with the Torchwood Archives, when she discovers exactly who the Institute is up against. "For Queen and Country" is a character study, and a terrific one, too, taking what we know about Yvonne from canon – her intelligence, her fearlessness, and her blind patriotism – and expanding on it so that we fully understand the circumstances and emotions that ultimately draw her into single-minded pursuit of the Doctor.
