Russell T Davies has revealed that the title for the forthcoming new series of Torchwood has changed! Forget Torchwood: The New World because the fourth season will now be titled Torchwood: Miracle Day. Well to be fair Russell T Davies did warn us that anything could change up to production beginning on the new series – which is due to start shortly.
A brief plot synopsis for Torchwood: Miracle Day has also been released which you can read below:
One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging — they get hurt and sick — but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four months’ time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural event – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?”, he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.
Over the past few weeks casting details for the Torchwood have been revealed so here’s a run down of who’s confirmed. John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Kai Owen will all reprise their respective roles. Joining them will be Mekhi Phifer (ER/Lie to Me) as Rex Matheson, Bill Pullman (Independence Day/Casper) as Oswald Danes, Alexa Hayins (All My Children/One Life to Live) as Esther Drummond, Arlene Tur (Crash) as Doctor Vera Jaurez and Dichen Lachman (Dollhouse/Neighbours) in an unspecified CIA role.
The broadcast date for Torchwood: Miracle Day has NOT been confirmed. As we reported yesterday a date had been confirmed but this was later revealed by the BBC to be incorrect.
