John Barrowman and Eve Myles in Torchwood: Miracle Day

Will You Re-Watch Miracle Day?

John Barrowman and Eve Myles in Torchwood: Miracle Day

Captain Jack and Gwen Cooper stand around doing nothing during a global catastrophe...

Watch are showing Torchwood: Miracle Day, starting tonight at 10pm.

The channel has been repeating episodes from series one and two, amidst the occasional Children of Earth run, for a while now, despite being pulled from schedules last year when they aired episodes that contained sex, violence and swearing  before the watershed. This breached regulations set by Ofcom, and led to the show being ‘reviewed.’ As BroadcastNow says:

“The media regulator said the scenes of violence had the ‘potential to distress younger viewers’ and there was no ‘sufficient justification’ for broadcasting them at 4pm.”

Well, quite. The series is now being shown solely after the 9pm watershed, when children distressed by Captain Jack have surely gone to bed.

Miracle Day, in which the human population of Earth simply stopped dying, began airing on BBC One in July 2011, and was met with very mixed reactions, leaving its future unknown. The first episode, The New World, is written Russell T. Davies and has an Audience Appreciation Index of 85 (considered excellent). After the initial episode, the series, arguably, went downhill.

John Fay, who wrote two episodes of Children of Earth and one of Miracle Day, is working on an upcoming episode of Doctor Who. Don’t worry; it was one of the better instalments of Miracle Day!

You can watch the latest series of Torchwood every Monday at 10pm on Watch.
