Torchwood: Miracle Day Coming To BBC America

Torchwood-Miracle-Day-mediuBBC America are to show Torchwood: Miracle Day the fourth season of the Doctor Who spin-off starring John Barrowman and Eve Myles.

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.

John-BarrowmanStarring 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.

  1. Season 3 ? I still wish I hadn’t watch it. Everything I loved about that show got destroyed or killed. No way I will watch it again… Was it to clear the field for the US?
    Season 4 ? I didn’t watch it on principle (no Ianto, no Torchwood) so I cannot comment… But none of my friends, even if the scope is limited, liked it… not about to watch it…
    Cann’t they just bring baxk the show I used to like? You know, the one with campy darks stories, with Jack front center, with Ianto, Ith the ream, the hub, Cardiff, the SUV, the alien of the week?

    1. Totally agree. That´s NOT Torchwood. I like when is in Cardiff, Jack being the boss, Jack and Ianto together (because Ianto HAS to be in it) and the original team. THAT IS TORCHWOOD. For me, the real good seasons are 1 & 2. 3 is really strange and 4… doesn´t exist for me.

  2. 1. If the Doctor has to be white and male I’m glad bbc has chosen someone older. Cue shallow fan girls and fanboys who just don’t get it.
    2. Even though Peter Capaldi is a great choice as fas as white men go BBC and BBC America are desparatey hoping for those of us in the US to watch the new series of Docror Who and they hope this crap show tha was a mockery of TORCHWOOD will encourage us.

  3. I haven´t seen it (and I won´t) Torchwood team (good team) includes Jack & Ianto (always) and the original characters , I love Tosh and Owen too. Also Cardiff, the pterodactyl, weevels, the rift, Suv, the HUB, that is Torchwood. And Jack as The Boss. Godd seasons: 1 and 2.
