Latest Torchwood Casting News

Torchwood: Miracle Day has been rounding up thespians like they’re going out of fashion. Illuminating casting directory Spotlight has listed four new bods ready to join Captain Jack in his international adventure.

The first Miracle worker will be former cast member William Thomas, who pedants will remember as from series two episode Something Borrowed – playing Gwen Cooper’s (Eve Myles) father Geriant Cooper (who is listed, interesting, as a series regular).

Interestingly Gwen’s Mother Mary, played by Sharon Morgan, is not currently listed as appearing in the series. Perhaps Mary died before the Miracle saved everyone from the Reapers Scythe? Maybe a possible story arc, he says, rubbing his chin?

Next to join the Torchwood gang is Lena Kaur cast as Dr. Alice Patel. Lena is perhaps most well know for appearing in tea-time teeth and tears, Hollyoaks as Lelia. More recently, she appeared in the drama Speechless and the film The Endz.

Grabbing onto the Torchwoodkonga line is Danny Szam who is playing a character called Surveillance (perhaps one of a trio with Intelligence and Analysis) Szam is perhaps most well known for appearing in every medical drama on television (Doctors, The Royal, and Casualty.)

And arriving fashionable late to the party is actor Daniel Adegboyega, who is listed as playing a Guard (or just playing someone called “Guard”). Daniel has appeared in modern cloak and dagger drama Spooks and PC Plod-a-thon The Bill.

Torchwood: Miracle Day will air simultaneously on BBC 1 in the UK and the Starz Network in the USA this Summer.

About the Author

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
