Torchwood: Miracle Day trailer

Torchwood: Miracle Day:

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 month's 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.

This looks great. Very filmic. Make sure you watch it to the end: "I'm Welsh!" Whap.

Clearly, Starz has higher production values than the BBC. Its other high profile f/sf show, Cameldung Camelot might be terrible, in terms of storytelling, but it is most definitely pretty. So I'll be there when this premieres on July 8th.
