To mark next week’s return of Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, the BBC have released this video interview with series star John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness).
The UK/US co-production picks up the story after the destruction of Torchwood in Children of Earth and co-stars Mekhi Phifer, Bill Pullman and Alexa Havins.
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 CIA. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy.
The answers lie within the old, secret British institute Torchwood.
As Matheson 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.
Torchwood – Miracle Day starts Thursday 14 July on BBC One.
