Torchwood Heading to Cannes

Format hounds will be getting more than just new content at this years MIPTV Media Market– they’ll also have to contend with John Barrowman and Bill Pullman who’ll be pitching up their Torchwood: Miracle Day wagon to drum up a pigeon or two in Cannes this April.

For those not in the biz MIPTV’s Media Market is where the latest innovations (and Torchwood) in TV, Internet, Mobile and all ‘video rich’ platforms are brought by companies around the globe.

In other words it means a lot to BBC Worldwide; so much so that Steve Macallister, Managing Director of BBC Worldwide Sales & Distribution gushed:

We’re thrilled to have John Barrowman and Bill Pullman with us at MIPTV. The fact that Torchwood: Miracle Day is able to attract such a high-calibre, international cast reflects the quality of the production – so it’s sure to prove popular with buyers again, along with the rest of our exciting drama slate.

Also in attendance and most definitely third in the list of ‘star most potential buyers want their photograph taken with’ is Executive Producer Julie Gardner.

Torchwood: Miracle Day sees CIA Operative Rex Matheson (Mekhi Phifer) join forces with Captain Jack (John Barrowman) and Gwen (Eve Myles) to investigate a global conspiracy that has resulted in the end of human deaths. Bill Pullman plays Oswald Danes, a convicted child killer who survives his own execution.


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.
