A New Series of Torchwood began last night on the American entertainment channel, Starz, and begins on Thursday 14th July 2011, at 9pm, BBC One in the UK.
This series revolves around one interesting story, one day no one dies, and the next day no one dies, and the next, and the next etc. Throughout the series Jack, Gwen and some new faces from across the pond, discover why Torchwood is a part of this mysterious global event and what the consequences of not dieing can make.
At the beginning of this first episode entitled The New World, we are directly introduced to Bill Pullman's character, Oswald Danes. Oswald is a convicted Child Killer and is facing execution. This scene is an incredibly dark and eery scene and you really get a sense that Oswald is a character you hate from the first step and when his execution sentence doesn't work and he stays alive, you know a bigger problem is occurring.
Whilst coming across Torchwood, Esther Drummond (played by Alexa Havins) is another interesting character addition to this series. She is very involved with her work and is shown as a companion type character which could help later in the series. Whilst Alexa's character is talking to Rex Matheson (played by Mekhi Phifer) across a phone, he crashes his car and a metal pole shoots off a truck in front of him, through the windscreen and straight into his chest.
The next scene we are re-introduced to Gwen Cooper, with her husband Rhys Cooper and their baby daughter in a private home on the coast of Wales. As you can see from the preview clip below, Gwen and Rhys are summoned by a knock on the door...
