The fourth season of Torchwood was shown on BBC One and Starz – in America – in 2011. The ten-part series was a co-production between the BBC and Starz and saw the action shift from Wales to America and other locations around the world.
Miracle Day, helmed by the show’s creator Russell T. Davies, was a bold attempt to take Torchwood to the next level following three highly successful seasons in Wales. However, the ten-part series met with a decidedly mixed reaction and average ratings.
BBC America will screen Miracle Day starting from Saturday 14th September. Prior to the repeat of the fourth season Children of Earth will be repeated in a marathon session on Friday 13th September.
Starring alongside John Barrowman and Eve Myles in Miracle Day were Mekhi Phifer, Alexa Havins, Kai Owen, Arlene Tur, Lauren Ambrose and Bill Pullman. Amongst the guest stars over the course of the ten-part series were Star Trek‘s Nana Visitor and John De Lancie, Dollhouses‘ Dichen Lachman, Jurassic Park’s Wayne Knight and Frances Fisher.
While a fifth season of Torchwood has not been ruled out it seems unlikely to happen in the near future. Starz has indicated it would produce another season if creator Russell T Davies were onboard.
