A lot of you are awaiting the return of the popular British sci-fi show “Torchwood.” The “Doctor Who” spin-off has moved from its BBC roots over to the Starz cable network where it will experience a few changes. The series will film a good portion of the show on U.S. soil (that’s a first), and the title of the series has been slightly altered. Not only will “Torchwood” be different in name but the new season will have an exciting twist. Find out what it is below…
While speaking at the TCA press event, “Torchwood” creator Russell T. Davies revealed that the international version of the show will have a new title: “Torchwood: Miracle Day.” Doesn’t that sound intriguing? What is this miracle you ask? Here’s how Davies describes the plot of the new season…
“The premise is a miracle happens in the world. One day, on Earth, no one dies. The next day, no one dies. The day after that, no one dies. The [people who are] dying, keep dying … but don’t actually die. The possibility of death ceases to exist. Which is great for some people. But it’s an instant overnight population boom. The earth relies on people dying … What is society going to do now? Some of the answers are beautiful and brave. Some of the reactions are terrifying.”
What is this? It’s like Children of Men but instead of being unable to conceive they’re unable to die. That’s sad. Who wants to constantly stay in pain like that knowing there’s no end? Hopefully Captain Jack and his crew can help!
“Torchwood: Miracle Day” is expected to air on Starz this summer.
