The Torchwood production team of BBC and Starz have released information that the previously announced heading title for Series Four of ‘The New World’ has now been replaced with the new heading for the series as ‘Miracle Day’!
Russell T Davies also gave a basic synopsis of Torchwood: Miracle Day at a recent event:
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 C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex 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 begins filming next week and is set to air on BBC One and Starz in July 2011, rumoured to have the same premiere on both sides of the Atlantic.
