Comic-Con 2011 Day Two – Torchwood: Miracle Day

Stars John Barrowman, Eve Myles, and Mekhi Phifer on the New Season and Practical Jokes on Set

Jul 23, 2011

After waiting for almost three hours in one of the longest lines I’ve ever witnessed at Comic-Con after several years of covering the event, we got into Ballroom 20 to catch the second half of the panel on Torchwood: Miracle Day. More

The official trailer for the new season of Dr. Who spin-off Torchwood premiered today online, giving fans the first taste of what this upcoming season might bring. More

Torchwood returns on July 8 with an episode called “Miracle Day.” We have the details. More

Recently, Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood became an international affair, with BBC bringing on American channel Starz for a joint production on season four. Now, comes word that the cast is about to gain a few more American accents. More

Torchwood Set to Return for Season Four as a Co-Production Between Starz and BBC

More Money = More Explosions, More Aliens, More Fun

Jun 09, 2010

After the dramatic conclusion to season three mini-series Children of Earth, it appeared all might be lost for the surviving members of Torchwood. Not so, as it was recently announced by the BBC and Starz that season four would be a joint production between the BBC and Starz networks. The new season will hit television summer of 2011, will air on Starz in the U.S., rather than on BBC America, and will feature an international cast and story. More

American Versions of Torchwood and Doctor Who in the Works

Torchwood Star John Barrowman Tapped to Join Potental Cast

Jan 20, 2010

America’s obsession with our British counterparts has produced its share of crossover television, ranging from the successful (The Office) to the forgettable (Coupling. Anyone? Anyone?). Potentially slated to join the list of American remakes, Under the Radar favorites, Torchwood and Doctor Who. More

And this is how the season ends. Not with a whimper, but a bang. A few bangs, actually. And some blood as well. There’s a lot of ‘splaining left to do—and yes, the pieces fit together amidst special effects cranked up to a blinding 11.

After running (or rather driving) into the sunset with a bleeding Captain Jack in her car, Ester and the team have reassembled in Wales to stage a final stand against…well they’re really not sure.

Two episodes. That’s how much time the Torchwood gang has left to save the world from overpopulation, shadowy pharmaceutical companies, and a government who’s moving closer and closer to shoving everyone in the oven and being done with it. Thankfully—after last week’s slogfest—they’re finally getting on with the important business of being heroes. More

This week’s episode picks up where last week left off, with Gwen Cooper ready to deliver Captain Jack into the hands of an unknown group to save her husband, mother, and daughter. (Clearly hell hath no fury like a family woman scorned.) More

The action of last week’s blistering episode continues into the new installment of Torchwood: Mircale Day. More

Throughout its three seasons, Torchwood has always been the most engaging when dealing with humans. Sure supernatural events and aliens happen—but at the end of the day, it’s the best—and worst—of humanity that drives the show to its greatest heights. This week, in The Categories of Life, episode five of Torchwood: Miracle Day, people are acting very badly indeed. More

The pace (thankfully) picks back up with Escape to L.A., episode four of Torchwood: Miracle Day, after last week’s chat fest. More

Jul 22, 2011

The episode kicks off with Torchwood vets Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) on the run, alongside captor-turned-cohort C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson (Mekhi Phifer) and green-at-the game analyst Ester Drummond (Alexa Havins). Thanks to “Miracle Day”—an event a few days earlier where mankind ceased to die, the human race is in chaos: half morning the loss of their souls, the other half falling into Dionysian excess. More

Rendition, the second of ten episodes of Torchwood: Miracle Day, still feels like it’s building to something more exciting. As with last week’s season premiere, there’s a lot of set up for what’s hopefully a bigger story. So again, it’s too soon to judge the season as a whole, based on only two episodes. Still, so far this fourth season is not quite matching the marked achievements of season three, Children of Earth. But hey, it’s summer TV and there’s not much else on besides dancing and dating competitions, reruns and Canadian imports, so Miracle Day is also more enjoyable than much of what else is on the tube right now.


Jul 09, 2011

So far, each season of Torchwood has managed to be better than the last. Based on only the first episode of its 10-episode fourth season, dubbed Miracle Day, it’s too soon to say for certain whether this trend will continue, but changes are definitely afoot with the show. More
