The New World Preview
With Torchwood broadcasting on Fridays in the USA and the following Thursday in the UK, we’re striking a not-too spoilery balance over the next few weeks with our coverage of Series 4 of Russell T Davies’ Doctor Who spin-off.
The New World airs on Starz from 10 pm this evening, while the UK follows suit on Thursday, July 14th at 9 Pm.
Very brief details can be found on the Starz website concerning the synopsis for Torchwood: Miracle Day, episode 101. In fact, this is all you will find:
Ep 101: ‘The New World’ When death itself comes to a halt, the whole world faces its greatest danger yet. CIA agent Rex Matheson has only one clue – Torchwood.
Instead, you’ll have to head to the UK to find a more comprehensive synopsis for the episode.
In The New World, the launch episode of Torchwood: Miracle Day, Agent Rex Matheson is impaled in a car crash and miraculously survives, while his analyst, Esther Drummond, sets out to discover what Torchwood is. Far away, in Wales, Gwen Cooper lives in hiding with her husband Rhys and daughter Anwen – she’s the last surviving Torchwood member and is determined to stay hidden. In Kentucky, convicted murderer Oswald Danes survives his own execution. And when Esther meets the mysterious Captain Jack Harkness, assassins are activated to kill them all…
