At TCA press tour, Torchwood creator Russell T. Davies just revealed that the upcoming international version of the show is getting a new title, and spilled the show’s plot.
His storyline is genius. Really.
First, the title. Gone is the previously announced Torchwood: The New World. Now it’s Torchwood: Miracle Day.
I know. Sort of like the first time you heard “The Phantom Menace,” isn’t it?
But wait ’til you hear what it’s about…
The premise is a miracle happens in the world,” Davies says. “One day, on Earth, no one dies. The next day, no one dies. The day after that, no one dies. The [people who are] dying, keep dying … but don’t actually die. The possibility of death ceases to exist. Which is great for some people. But it’s an instant overnight population boom. The earth relies on people dying … What is society going to do now? Some of the answers are beautiful and brave. Some of the reactions are terrifying.
