Well…just the month, but it’s definitely going to be airing in June! Den of Geek got word via a BBC press release that the British Film institute will be hosting a preview of the first episode on Friday, June 12, at the National Film Theatre in London.
While everyone has been speculating for months on the air date, this should confirm (and be a relief to many) that the third series will probably start on Monday, June 15, although this has yet to be confirmed.
Den of Geek also mentioned that the preview event will include a Q&A session with the cast and creative team. In addition to that goodness, the BFI have supplied a brief synopsis of the first episode (contains spoilers):
1965: Twelve children are gathered on a deserted moor, before being surrounded by a harsh, bright light …. and then they are gone! Today: all over Earth, children stop moving. Stop playing, stop laughing. Then, as one, they begin to speak with the same voice, announcing the imminent arrival of a new alien threat. “We are coming….” As the British government closes ranks, it issues a death warrant against Captain Jack and Torchwood…
So, are you ready for it? I know that I can hardly wait, but at least we don’t have much longer to go. In about a month and fifteen days (I hope), we will finally get what we’ve all been waiting for!
