Press Release

STARZ will present the original series premiere of “Torchwood: Miracle Day” entitled ‘The New World,’ on Friday, July 8th at 10pm ET/PT. The one-hour, 10-part series features “Torchwood” alumni John Barrowman (Capt. Jack Harkness) and Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper) along with Mekhi Phifer (Rex Matheson), Bill Pullman (Oswald Danes) and, in an extended guest role, Lauren Ambrose (Jilly Kitzinger).

“Torchwood: Miracle Day” begins with a day when nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging — they get hurt and sick — but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month’s time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural occurrence – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy.  The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?,” he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.

STARZ’ newest original series is a reimagining of the UK sensation, which originally debuted in 2006 on BBC One. The show’s original creator, writer/producer Russell T Davies, serves as executive producer along with BBC Worldwide Productions’ SVP Julie Gardner, with Davies also serving as show-runner. “Torchwood: Miracle Day” is produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for Starz, BBC Cymru Wales and BBC Worldwide.

    Since I don’t have Stars, I am wondering if it is going to show up on Netflix under the Stars section.

    I think Torchwood has really hit its stride. Focusing the show on how humans react to the strange consequences of the Whoniverse is much better than the old “monster of the week” format they had in the first two seasons.

    I like the way it is feeling like Jack and Gwen are just dragging people into their messes in this series. It fits that Torchwood is this secret that no one wants to talk about like it was presented in the Doctor Who episodes, albeit for different reasons this time.

    When looking at a TV character who’s male, should their make up look that obvious? I mean, I get that they’re all made up a little and all that, but the opening shot is a little heavy on the foundation. Oh well, looking forward to some Torchwood either way.
