BBC AMERICA has announced the acquisition of the highly anticipated season three of its hit sci-fi series, Torchwood. The highest rating show in the history of BBC AMERICA will return to the channel with five all-new episodes in 2009.

Led by the enigmatic Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), the Torchwood team are separate from the government, outside the police and beyond the United Nations.  Torchwood sets its own rules, delving into the unknown and fighting the impossible.

The award-winning show, which received huge critical acclaim for season one and two, will premiere on BBC AMERICA shortly after the UK premiere. 

 Richard De Croce, Senior Vice President, Programming, BBC Worldwide America said,  “Captain Jack is coming back to BBC America and we can’t wait! Torchwood really represents the essence of the channel – it’s sexy, action packed and a little bit subversive. Clearly our viewers love it as much as we do.”

Eclipse Magazine readers love Torchwood as well which is why we will be bringing them an exclusive interview with Captain Jack Harkness himself; British actor John Barrowman in the days ahead. The interview, which was arranged through Holtzheimer’s at the San Diego Comic Con will be coming online at Eclipse Magazine very shortly, so keep your internet connections tuned to us for this and another exciting exclusive Torchwood interviews.
