The next step for 'Torchwood?' 'Miracle Day'
Series creator Russell T Davies reveals at the Television Critics Association press tour that the next step for the series is "Torchwood: Miracle Day."
"The premise is a miracle that happens to the world," says Davis. "One day, no one dies. The next day, no one dies, and on and on and on."
This happy news quickly leads to a global crisis. "And the sick stay stick the older keep getting older," Davies continues, "but no one dies."
Sounds familiar, eh? Something that might be of interest to the immortal Captain Jack Harkness ( John Barrowman), one of just two remaining characters from the original cast.
As for how this new incarnation of the series found its way to Starz, president and C.E.O. Chris Albrecht says it was an easy choice: "All one has to do is look at 'Children of Earth' to know that it's just great storytelling and a great chance to take and, with a premium television platform, make something terrific a little more terrific."
"Torchwood: Miracle Day" premieres July 1, internationally.
