New Torchwood: Miracle Day Cast And Plot Info...

Torchwood: Miracle Day is the new title for the upcoming 10 episode arc of the adult Doctor Who spin off series and the idea behind the title is as follows:

"The premise is a miracle happens in the world," [creator Russell T.] Davies says. "One day, on Earth, no one dies. The next day, no one dies. The day after that, no one dies. The [people who are] dying, keep dying ... but don't actually die. The possibility of death ceases to exist. Which is great for some people. But it's an instant overnight population boom. The earth relies on people dying ... What is society going to do now? Some of the answers are beautiful and brave. Some of the reactions are terrifying."

The opening scene has Bill Pullman, playing death row prisoner who's a murderer and pedophile, receiving a lethal injection for his crimes ... and not dying. ...

Naturally, the Torchwood team is called in to try and tackle this very unusual problem. And, of course, Davies promises plenty of chases and explosions and action too.

News also broke last week that two new additions to the cast, All my Children's Alexa Havins and Dollhouse's Dichen Lachman have both been chosen for C.I.A based roles in the series. Although Dichen may only appear in the first ep.

Looking forward to it!
