I wanna live forever!…pah…it’s nothing but misery. You’d think at least some good would come out of it but if these character videos for Torchwood: Miracle Day are anything to go by not being able to sing the chorus to Fame with the same conviction anymore is the least of everyone’s troubles.
Serving as an introduction to the misery Captain Jack, Gwen Cooper, Esther Drummond, Rex Matheson, Jilly Alexander Kitzinger and everyone’s favourite electioneering non-corpse Oswald Danes all spill a host of little spoilers which, thanks to the videos not being available in this region, have been cobbled together in this 4 minute blow to the temple.
Its riverting, brooding stuff with Bill Pullman giving a standout performance, John Barrowman being a complete ham, and, in the most interesting development, Torchwood’s role as conspiracy breaker being called into question by just about everyone including former members of the Scooby Gang.
Torchwood: Miracle Day is a co-production between the Starz Network in the US and BBC Worldwide in the UK- the air date for the US is the 7th July with the UK airdate still yet to be confirmed.
