Not The Only Immortal in the Village

An interview with Russell T Davies on has revealed a very interesting aspect of the storyline for Miracle Day, the title of Torchwood Series 4.

As you may already know, Miracle Day – previously known as “The New World” – takes place across a series of days in which no one on Earth dies. Fans are expecting the 10-part series to portray governments in a very poor light as a quasi-Logan’s Run society develops (although this is purely conjecture it is the logical step) in which the only answer is to cull people.

There is an obvious continuation here of Davies’ commentary on government’s “playing God” which began (in its current form) with Children of Earth. However the really interesting thing is the effect this will have on Torchwood leader Jack Harkness…

“Captain Jack is an immortal, and what we are talking about is the world turns immortal. There’s an awful lot of story packed into that.”

Torchwood Series 4 is shaping up to be pretty good, we reckon – production has commenced, so look out for it in the summer!
