Torchwood: Miracle Day
Death is not an option
The Torchwood cast are joined by the stars of Independence Day and ER in an ambitious new global storyline featuring locations in Wales, the US and around the world.
When convicted child killer Oswald Danes miraculously survives his own execution, the footage holds America transfixed. At the same time, people all over the world stop dying. Day after day, the phenomenon continues. and a secret British institution named Torchwood seems to hold the answers…
CIA agents Rex Matheson and Esther Drummond investigate the only two surviving members of the team – Gwen Cooper, who has retreated to a remote Welsh hideaway with her husband and new baby, and the mysterious, brilliant Captain Jack Harkness. But they soon find themselves on the same side, fighting the greatest threat to humanity ever known – humanity itself.
For Earth is filling up, fast. Resources are running out. and as history has shown, bad things happen when good people get desperate.
Torchwood: Miracle Day is a co-production from BBC Cymru Wales, BBC Worldwide, and Starz Entertainment, and will premiere in the US on Friday, July 8.
UPDATE! Now there’s our first pic from the show, that of (L to R) John Barrowman, Alexa Havins, Mekhi Phifer, and Eve Myles in a car (this would appear to be from Episode 3):
