Who cares about the new iPhone when Starz just announced they are getting the new version (This is a co-production between Starz, BBC Cymru Wales and BBC Worldwide, and BBC Worldwide ) of Torchwood in 2011! Ten episodes have been ordered and John Barrowman (Capt. Jack), Eve Myles (Gwen) are returning to lead the new cast. The official press release is after the break.
Torchwood: Children of Earth [BBC America, Monday through Friday, 9-10:15/10:00-11:15C] is a mini-series event that in the words of creator/co-writer Russell T. Davies, “will rip your guts out!” He is not kidding; this is not hyperbole. Children of Earth is as powerful a television event as you’ll see all year.
It begins with the children of the world stopping. Whether they’re walking to school; eating a bit of brekkie, or playing in the park, they all simply stop. Then they scream – in unison; around the world. FInally, they repeat the ominous message, “We are coming.” Then they start up again. Hours later, the pattern repeats. Each time the children stop, the message changes, slightly – from “We are coming,” to “We are coming… back!” and so on.

Torchwood is the action-packed, adrenaline-fueled sci-fi series from the BBC, following the adventures of a team of investigators, working for the secret organization Torchwood, who use scavenged alien technology in a struggle to contain the mysterious and deadly challenges thrown at them through a space/time continuum Rift.

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.
“It’s always emotional to say goodbye to people.”
Most of the time, Eve Myles, Torchwood‘s no-nonsense Gwen Cooper, bounds around like an over-excited puppy. On stage at the Rift Convention, she overcomes her apprehension at facing her first convention appearance by regaling fans with tales from the set of Torchwood that quickly have the audience in the palm of her hand. But, as she tells Carole Gordon in a quiet moment later in the day, filming Torchwood was not all fun and games. Losing two of the characters from the show at the end of the second series, people who had over the course of filming become and remain her good friends, was a deeply emotional experience – and one that will continue to affect both her and Gwen.
