Torchwood Children of Earth Day One Reminder

By Mark
Make sure you don’t forget that Day One, the first part of Torchwood’s third series, will air for the first time in the United Kingdom tonight at 9pm on BBC One. The episode will broadcast simultaneously in high definition on the BBC’s HD channel and it will see John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd return to play their respective characters; Jack, Gwen and Ianto. The official synopsis for Day One can be viewed below;

An ordinary day becomes one of terror, as every single child in the world stops. A message is sent to all the governments of Earth: "We are coming." But, as a trap closes around Captain Jack, the sins of the past are returning and long-forgotten events from 1965 threaten to reveal an awful truth.

Torchwood is forced underground as the government takes swift and brutal action. As members of the team are hunted down, Britain risks becoming a rogue state. Meanwhile, the mysterious and powerful 456 draws ever-closer.

Captain Jack, Gwen and Ianto are helpless as events escalate to such a degree that mankind faces the end of civilisation itself.

Each episode will have an approximate running time of sixty minutes and the next episode, Day Two, will transmit at 9pm on BBC One tomorrow night. The series will then continue to air in the United Kingdom every night this week on the same channel at the same time. Children of Earth will begin in Australia tomorrow and it will then premiere in both America and Canada on the twentieth of July. Will you be watching tonight’s episode of Torchwood?

    I really enjoyed reading your blog. I have a few blogs of my own and I always look at other people’s blogs for great ideas. In fact, not to sound like an advertisement, but if I were you, I would submit this blot to and let thousands of others see it for free. I get a lot of traffic and readers from them for my blogs. Anyways, I have added this blog to my social bookmark and I look forward to all the updates.

    No way I'm waiting to the 20th to watch. I'll see it online later tonight. I don't understand the BBC's strategy on this. Why didn't they just roll it out to all territories at the same time. They are so hellbent on scrubbing the Internet of their content and stuff like this just promotes it.

Something to say?
