Torchwood: Miracle Day
Just a head's up that there's a new series of Torchwood on the air. 'Miracle Day' is the new American series (or 'season' I suppose) still featuring Captain Jack and Gwen, the only surviving members after 'Children of Earth' the last miniseries featuring a powerful alien race intent on capturing Earth's children.
Like the previous series 'Miracle Day' has a single plot to it rather than a series of seperate adventures. On one day no one dies, no one dies the next day or the day after, not even a man caught in an explosion, who has his head removed just to test the effects. CIA agent Rex Matheson knows that Torchwood is involved so he sets off to Wales to track down the remaining members - but he's not the only one hunting them!!
There's a lot more going on and the cause has yet to be revealed, but it's almost certainly some cool alien phenomenon and I can't wait to see what emerges. I'm going to stick to documenting any new aliens that show up - for discussion of the episodes head over to Impossible Podcasts in the sidebar.
If you aren't following this new series you should still be able to catch up on your on-demand service before the next broadcast on Thursday.
