Tv Season Info

Series 4 begins with CIA agent Rex Matheson being required to investigate a global conspiracy that threatens to completely wipe out the entire human race. One day, people realise that they are not ageing (despite being able to get hurt and sick), and that they are unable to die. Initially calling it 'Miracle Day', things take an ominous turn when they realise that they are in the midst of a population boom, and that the human race may in fact cease to be viable. The answers seem to lie within Torchwood, which was destroyed years ago...

The story line is expertly structured. And the writers maintain an all-important sense of humor.

A summertime winner on the strength of strong acting, engaging writing and an immediately gripping premise.

This new-look Torchwood has style, high drama and strong characters, and poses some chin-stroking philosophical questions.

After a while, the story becomes the equivalent of that one person on the train who can not stop telling you about how the secret conspiracy is out to get you-a rhetorical argument that devolves into paranoid and then wish-fulfilling fantasy.

It's a solid story with some brilliant turns and some very pessimistic predictions of how the world faces a health crisis of overwhelming dimension, but it also feels stretched out beyond its natural length.

It remains to be seen whether "the end of death" is a concept that can carry Torchwood through a full 10 hours of television.

I keep wanting to make 24 comparisons, from back when 24 was really exciting to watch, but it's not like Jack Bauer went around saving every human on planet Earth.

That this latest sci-fi tale doesn't fully measure up to its predecessor does little to diminish its offbeat charm.
