New Torchwood Title And Plot Revealed

Russell T Davies has finally given us some news about Torchwood: The New World, the first part being that it is no longer called The New World.

In a press release earlier today, reported by InsideTV the new title and plot details were announced. Firstly, the show will now be called Torchwood: Miracle Day

And RTD has said that the plot will go a little something like this:

“The premise is a miracle happens in the world. One day, on Earth, no one dies. The next day, no one dies. The day after that, no one dies. The dying just 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.”
It has also been anounced by Jane Espenson that several characters names have now been changed, though there is no word yet on which ones or what to.

So how does this sound to you? Let us know below.


  1. Sounds awful... The New World had a nice ring to it, and this plot sounds a bit Discworld/fantasy genre :(

  2. The plot sounds interesting, but I kind of hate the name.

  3. Not sure about the name (just "Miracle" would be better I think?), but it's the story that counts! Sounds an interesting plot to me, hopefully plenty of twists and turns to come. I hope Jack Harkness' name hasn't been changed :p
