Summary: Together forever.
It’s not about the weather.
Jack clings to his coat because of what it represents; rather than any need for actual warmth. On those rare summer days when Cardiff becomes a swelter box, he imagines the passers-by on the street wondering about the strange man dressed for the winters of over a generation ago.
They’ll never understand how great he felt swaggering through the London blitz, conning one and all, until he met the Doctor and everything changed. Over a hundred years and thousands of lovers have passed since then.
The only thing he’s been faithful to is the coat.
