Product Description

Torchwood: Miracle Day (DVD)

John Barrowman (Doctor Who, Desperate Housewives) and Eve Myles (Doctor Who, Little Dorrit) are joined by stars Mekhi Phifer (ER, Lie to Me) and Bill Pullman (While You Were Sleeping, Independence Day) for a new heart-pounding season of Torchwood. When convicted child killer Oswald Danes (Pullman) miraculously survives his own execution, the footage holds America transfixed. And then everyone realizes that nobody is dying. 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 CIA agent Rex Matheson (Phifer) investigates a secret British institution named Torchwood that seems to hold the answers, and finds only two surviving members: Gwen Cooper (Myles), who has retreated to a remote Welsh hideaway with her new family, and the mysterious, brilliant Captain Jack Harkness (Barrowman). But soon they all find themselves in the same fight against the greatest threat humanity has ever known – humanity itself.


Torchwood: Miracle Day opens with a fantastic premise: one day, everyone on earth stops dying. A murderous pedophile being executed survives; a CIA agent who gets punctured with rebar survives; victims of heart attacks and strokes and disease survive. The world population begins to skyrocket and the only clue is a word that flashed across the CIA's computers for only a moment: Torchwood--which all fans of BBC science fiction know is a British agency dedicated to investigating impossible and alien events. In short order, Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) returns from his self-imposed exile and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) comes out of retirement to discover what's behind this instant immortality. Reluctantly merged with Jack and Gwen are two members of the CIA: an aggressive field agent who should be dead (Mekhi Phifer, 8 Mile) and an analyst who's never done field work at all (Alexa Havins). And how will that pedophile (Bill Pullman, Independence Day) fit into everything as he gradually becomes a cult figure and a media sensation? Unfortunately, the 10-episode series soon gets bogged down in conflicting impulses. Half of the show wants to be a thoughtful examination of how humanity would grapple with such a transformation, while the other half wants to be a thrill ride as Torchwood peels back layers of conspiracy. These halves seem like they ought to mesh, but they undercut each other; what would be a compelling revelation for one of these threads seems lackluster for the purposes of the other. What makes Miracle Day still worth watching are the human moments: a wonderful backstory romance for Jack and an encounter between the pedophile and an escort have an emotional payoff that's far more significant than the conspiracy, which grows increasingly forced. And Gwen Cooper remains a delightful character, grounded in the prosaic world while wrestling with the mysterious unknown; she's the perfect audience surrogate. The basic pleasures of Torchwood are muddled in Miracle Day, but what succeeds will still be essential to the show's fans. --Bret Fetzer
