Boom! Crash! Arrgghhh! (plummets into worlds deepest fountain) “I’m Captain Jack Harkness” As introductions go there’s not many that stand above ole Jack’s (John Barrowman) meet and great with Torchwood: Miracle Day newbie Esther Drummond (Alexa Havins)
So it comes as no surprise that the Beeb have used this and two other exciting clips (hosted at Daily Motion due to pesky region blocking…grrr!) to introduce the modern day Captain Scarlet to American audiences on the eve of the shows return on July 8th.
The second clip see the now damp pair discussing the origins of the Torchwood institute – don’t get excited, the Doctor isn’t mentioned – where Esther learns that the former agency policed more than the just the strange terrestrial occurrences.
While the third and final clip sees Oswald Danes (Bill Pullman, who is probably going to steal the show this season) tying a government representative up in metaphorical ropes as he worms his way out of any wrong-doing for his ‘successful’ execution; also it confirms that Danes as a paedophile, something that went missing from his official character summary for awhile.
Torchwood: Miracle Day begins stateside 8th July at 10 pm ET/PT and 14th July at 9 pm on BBC 1 in the UK.
