I was re-watching Doctor Who: "The Unquiet Dead" earlier this week. I had always wondered how the Gelth knew about the Time War, which they used to manipulate the Doctor into helping them. During this latest re-watch I realized, they exploited Gwyneth's gift, her "sight" during the seance to do this. When I recalled her earlier conversation with Rose, how she'd seen where Rose had been and was still yet to go to, that's when it dawned on me.

- Current Music:Falling Skies: "Sanctuary Part 2"
ETA: Update July 2012. Just had an order from Spain arrive promptly at the end of June which was carried by both Spanish post and US Mail. No problems at all. Then I got an email from Royal Mail enquiring about one of the delivery cock ups, specifically and item I'd had trouble getting from Amazon UK. Why they waited until now to enquire is beyond me. That was the item due January 16.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Heroes or any of the characters. Tim Kring created it and as far as I know NBC owns it. Natalie Chaidez is listed as the writer of “The Fix,” which is a jumping off point for this.
Spoilers: Season 1 all the way through Season 4, including the graphic novels. Starts with an intro in 2006 but the bulk is set during 1984
Characters: Primarily: Claude Rains and Charles Deveaux. Peter Petrelli is in the brief section from “The Fix” leading to this flashback, and there is a brief moment in that flashback with the mysterious Sylvia
Pairings: Claude/Sylvia (brief and nothing graphic)
Rating: PG13 as most kids might not get this and there’s’ some mild swearing.
Summary: Missing scene and flashback explaining how Claude wound up working for the Company in the first place
