Torchwood: Miracle Day finally has the attention of the mainstream press: Access Hollywood, an entertainment news and gossip show, gave us a look at the newest escapades of Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper. And that look is full of what makes Torchwood great … but on steroids.
The clip below shows all of the intense action that we love in Torchwood … but typically in the past the intensity has come from character interaction and moral complexity. Here we get explosions, a car crash, stunt work and Gwen Cooper shooting a gun while holding her baby.
Will Torchwood: Miracle Day be too American? We sincerely doubt it. Torchwood‘s creators have proved they have a strong vision that happens to appeal to an American audience. Only now, with American television channel Starz backing them, they have a serious budget to play with.
