Torchwood: Miracle Day

Postby DaveC » Thu Mar 24, 2011 10:06 am

Torchwood poster unveiling!

Am kind of excited, as it's a co-production with US and has a great international cast as well as Jack, Gwen and Rhys:

Dollhouse’s Dichen Lachman (Sierra) is set to guest star in the season premiere as a CIA agent.

Additionally, Alexa Havins (All My Children) has joined the regular cast as Esther Katusi, a CIA Watch analyst with an unshakable faith in human nature and a monster crush on colleague Rex (ER’s Mekhi Phifer).

Russell T Davies will be writing episodes one and ten
Jane Espenson is writing episodes three, five, seven and eight.
Doris Egan is writing episode two
John Shiban is writing episode six
Lena Kaur has been cast as Dr Alicia Patel – the actress is best known as Leila in Hollyoaks
Danny Szam will play a character listed as Surveillance – he’s appeared in Skins, Doctors, The Royal and Casualty
Daniel Adegboyega will play a guard
William Thomas is returning to the show playing Gwen’s father Geraint Cooper

Should I watch the British version first? Haven't gotten around to it yet but if the new stuff builds on on the UK eps, I'll make sure to give them a viewing soon.

The first three seasons are really good. But as this is co-financed, they are probably going to make it accessable to anyone. I would check the out first but it's to you. Worth it for james Marsters in S2 alone. :)

I would say that you DO need to watch the first three before this.

I didn't watch Series 1, and some of the references in S2 harked back to S1 mythology.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

That's right! :D

So is this series four then?
I haven't seen every episode in series three yet. I didn't think they were gonna do Torchwood anymore actually. Great news.
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.
