Captain Jack's immortality is spreading...

Torchwood

Coming to Starz this July is Torchwood: Miracle Day, the next instalment of the popular Doctor Who spin-off, and does it sound promising.  The team has a whole new challenge in this new season, one that might pose a bit of a problem. According to show creator Russell T. Davies:

“It’s as simple as this, that one day on Earth no one dies. Not a single person on Earth dies. The next day no one dies. The next day no one dies and on and on and on. Now, the sixth day, the old stay old and keep getting older. The dying keep dying, but no one quite dies. The possibility of death ceases to exist. Great news for some people, but globally — and that’s what the whole show is about. Actually, it’s an instant overnight population boom where, suddenly, the Earth relies on people dying. That’s how the whole system works: the food, the room, the temperature. So, suddenly, you’ve got a crisis affecting everyone on the planet, and that’s where the Torchwood team... [comes] in."

Stars John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) and Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper) are to reprise their roles. Rumors abound that the rest of the team will be made up of American agents, either of one of the government agencies, or of the fabled lost Torchwood headquarters. No matter what, it sounds like the Torchwood team has their jobs cut out for them.  Let’s hope time passes quickly between now and July.

I love the idea of the new series, and I do like that its going to America to get bigger, but its only in wales for a part of one episode (if rumours are to be believed). This makes me annoyed, as this means the show has lost its british roots and, well, welsh roots, I love the fact that a great show that is viewed globally was able to show off Cardiff. Im not saying I want the show to not go to america, but I don't want it's welsh roots to be forgotten.

I'm excited that both Doctor Who and Torchwood are filming here in the states, but at that same time, it does take something away from what made the original programs cool. I hope they don't try to Americanize Doctor Who at all, because it doesn't need it.

I have to agree with the earlier concern about Wales being forgotten,I loved the strong Welsh feel of it and that made it all the more charming and more human and believable on a common level,but disconnecting from the UK altogether isn't a good move in my opinion,I like the stuff BBC America has done like Jekyll which was awesome excellent drama,but Torchwood as with Dr Who are our best series and to remove itself from this hemisphere entirely is taking from the series what made it magical in the first place.I'm pleased it's coming back but I'm a little concerned aswell,I love Gwen and Jack's characters and the chemistry they have so I hope that will stop it becoming too big in the wrong way.
