Captain Jack's immortality is spreading...
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.
