Starz has released an 11-minute featurette to help promote the stateside version of Torchwood. By the looks of it, they are aiming for a wider audience and not people that already have their DVRs set up. In other words, they definitely don’t delve into the complexity of the characters. Captain Jack is sold as space-pirate of sorts and there is no mention of his omnisexuality.
The first two seasons of Torchwood were okay, nothing spectacular, but the shortened third season, aka Children of Earth, was pretty great. Hopefully, this new 10-part series will be just as great, if not better.
Torchwood: Miracle Day will air on Starz Friday, July 8, at 10 p.m. in the U.S. and on Thursday, July 14, at 9 p.m. on the BBC in the U.K. [via blastr]
