As promised yesterday, we have more news from the Whoniverse today — coming this July to BBC America is the oh-so-long awaited (by me anyway) Torchwood: Children of Earth. The miniseries-esque event will air over the course of five evenings and features the newly slimmed down Torchwood team of Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles), and Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd). Our heroes will be spending their time in Children of Earth trying to rescue said children from some sort of baddie which has taken control of them… all of them. At least, that’s what I can discern from this here trailer:
Between the return of Torchwood and Doctor Who this summer, sci-fi fans, particularly followers of The Doctor, have a lot to look forward to. Both of these series have been building the hype for these new entries for quite a while, hopefully the specials live up to that hype.
