Torchwood: US/UK Versions are the Same!

Bleeding Cool have gotten out a magnifying glass, combed delicately through both the US and UK versions of Torchwood: Miracle Day episode one and can confirm that- apart from screen ratio’s – there’s no difference between the two.

During the furore surrounding exactly when UK viewers would see the return of Captain Jack (John Barrowman) rumours, circulating from Doctor Who Magazine, confirmed that violent scenes would be cut down in the UK and scenes in general in the US would be cut for timekeeping /advertisements.

However the only difference between the two this time round was the next time trailers.

US viewers got a bog standard preview of the next episode Rendition while UK fans were treated to a jaunt around the entire series- including some man on man action for Captain Jack, policemen complaining about the state of murder these days, and a preview of the Oswald Danes (Bill Pullman) Road Show.

Irrespective of what cuts may come: will you be watching both versions to get the full picture or will you be happy with one until a restorative DVD release allows you to watch them unimpeded by conflicting standards?


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.
