If you’ve been a regular reader of this site you know we’re big fans of the BBC series Doctor Who and its companion, spin-off series Torchwood. Of course, we were thrilled to bring you the news that an all-new season of Torchwood was coming to the US on Starz featuring main characters Capt. Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles).
Now, we are also thrilled to telly you that Starz has set the premiere date for the Torchwood series and that date is Friday, July 8th at 10 E/P. In case you’re not familiar with the new Torchwood, it will also feature new characters and actors including Mekhi Phifer, Bill Pullman and, in an extended guest role, Lauren Ambrose.
Turning to the story, here’s what its all about:
It begins with a day when nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging, they get hurt and sick, but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite.
But this can’t be a natural event – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson (Phifer) investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?,” he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.
Sounds cool, right? Obviously, we’re going to keep tabs on this new show and bring you as much news about it as possible. So, be sure to check back right here for more on Torchwood: Miracle Day.
