Q for a Miracle Day!

Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s John De Lancie – the alien enigma Q – has been confirmed as a guest in Torchwood Series 4, Miracle Day.

The news was revealed on Twitter by Torchwood writer Jane Espenson:

“I just this minute got permission to tell about the Torchwood guest star I was tweeting about,” she told her followers. “Two great Sci Fi fandoms collide.”

“He’s de licious… he’s de lightful. He’s de lovely … our friend Q from Star Trek: TNG, John De Lancie, is part of the #Torchwood family.”

Espenson was at pains to point out that De Lancie would not be playing Q.

De Lancie joins a fascinating cast that includes names as diverse as Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Lena Kaur (Hollyoaks) alongside John Barrowman and Eve Myles as Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.

Torchwood: Miracle Day will debut in the US on Starz on Friday, July 8th, with a UK broadcast yet to be confirmed.
