Owen Harper was Torchwood Three's chief medical officer during a portion of the 2000s. Moody and forthright, Harper wasn't slow to show his dissatisfaction with Jack Harkness' decisions. Owen was shot and killed by Aaron Copley, the director of the Pharm, who was in turn killed by Jack. Jack used the second resurrection gauntlet to temporarily restore Owen to life so that he could say goodbye to his friends. For reasons unknown Owen remained conscious, having been returned to a state of partial life. Although once again conscious and sentient, Owen Harper, post-death, found he had limited bodily functions. His wounds would not heal, he could not breathe (or blow air) and he couldn't sleep. He could swallow liquids and food, but he had no sense of taste and he did not digest food; it had to be removed or somehow expelled from his body. After an unsuccessful attempt to get drunk, Owen stood on his head to allow gravity to drain fluids from his system. His lack of blood flow made erections impossible.
