Torchwood Update: BBC Marketing have informed us no date has yet been set for the launch of Torchwood. It is expected sometime this summer.


It'll be around that time, however.

Answer to the hangman
“What would happen if the entire human race became immortal?”

ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

-- Merged Double Post --

The storyline is genius. Really.

First, the title. Gone is Torchwood: The New World. Now it’s Torchwood: Miracle Day.

I know. Sort of like the first time you heard “The Phantom Menace,” isn’t it?

But wait ’til you hear what it’s about…

“The premise is a miracle happens in the world,” Davies says. “One day, on Earth, no one dies. The next day, no one dies. The day after that, no one dies. The [people who are] dying, keep dying … but don’t actually die. The possibility of death ceases to exist. Which is great for some people. But it’s an instant overnight population boom. The earth relies on people dying … What is society going to do now? Some of the answers are beautiful and brave. Some of the reactions are terrifying.”

Naturally, the Torchwood team is called in to try and tackle this very unusual problem (btw, if you haven’t seen Children of Earth yet, rent it ASAP). The series will air on Starz in July.

What’s your take on the plot?

Aliens are probably responsible, at least that's what I am thinking.

Don't like the new title either

I hope it's not as predictable as that :( My other guess is that Jack's 'power' has been amplified somehow to effect everyone, thou the non-dying does sound different to his case :unsure:

I read an interview on After Elton this morning where RTD insinuated that TW has to come out of DW's shadow and become more of a stand alone show. I have to say that I'm more and more put off with each new bit of information, I want it be take place in the Whoniverse goddamnit :thumbsdown:

Sorry hun :( I will just add that AE do seem to have a bit of a negative view of all things RTD related, which goes back some time. All his interviews on there have a down vibe to them, but this one seems to be straight from the horses mouth so to speak, and not something they have reworded :unsure:

I'm not sure how many times you can retcon a show and still expect a loyal fan base to follow, thou I may be worrying over nothing. It could be a stunning piece of TV; I'm just not sure how it's going to relate to DW/SJA anymore :P

CoE wasn't too tied to DW, but it was a great story. And I read in a recap from the panel that there will be "fewer" references to DW, which means there are at least some. RTD said that's more because they are filming in separate continents.

I do like it tied with the Who universe...but right now, with RTD running one show, and Moffatt the other, it seems unlikely to be tightly knit together. I would be happy to just a reference to the Silence, if possible.

And the premise excites me, sounds like CoE's "10% of the children, or your whole planet". A simple concept with a lot of implications, and can branch out everywhere.

EDIT: Oh,and I'm sure aliens will show up. It won't happen just because it's a "miracle".

Moff and RTD do email each other to make sure nothing in the 3 shows contradict each other.

But Miracle Day sounds like a feminine hygeine product.

CoE was standalone, but Gwen still had the speech about the Doctor, and Jack mentioned Martha. Thats really all I want, just little references. I dont want them to pretend the Doctor never existed at all etc....

I know they won't contradict. But I mean, the season won't end with Jack grabbing the Doctor's hand and running towards the TARDIS. It'll never be that synchronized. But I'm sure they'll acknowledge they are in the same universe. At least I hope so. But right now I care more about it being a great story, than the references to Who.

Gwen's speech about the Doctor was brilliant, too.

That makes me feel a lot better. I hope you guys are right. They can't ignore everything then there wouldn't be a point to the show being Torchwood.

Filming starts today!

Doesn't really say anything we don't already know but it's nice to see it get mentioned.
