'Torchwood' series on DVD and 'Torchwood: Miracle Day' character photos & bios
TV Shows On DVD reveals that Torchwood - The Complete Original UK Series arrives on DVD and Blu in time for Miracle Day
Many fans of the BBC series are counting the upcoming Starz production of Torchwood: Miracle Day this summer as the "fourth series" (or season) of the popular show which was spun off from Doctor Who. There were two traditional-length series/seasons at 13 episodes each, followed by the five-episode "third series" titled Torchwood: Children of Earth. After that adventure, Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) left Earth for a bit...which is why we saw him in an alien bar in a brief cameo for David Tennant's final episode of Doctor Who ("The End of Time, Part 2"). Jack is reuniting this summer with Gwen (Eve Myles) and others in the new 10-episode production, which also stars Mekhi Phifer (ER's "Dr. Gregory Pratt") as "Rex Matheson", a CIA agent who gets caught up in events beyond his previous experience.
To celebrate the new adventures, which premiere on the Starz cable channel this July 8th, the BBC has announced today that Torchwood - The Complete Original UK Series will be available on DVD and high-def Blu-ray Disc this July 19th.
