Storyline

In an American prison child killer Oswald Danes is given a lethal injection but fails to die. CIA agent Rex Matheson is one of several severely injured hospital patients who should be dead but survive. The phenomenon is worldwide and the press dub it Miracle Day,when noone dies. Rex's colleague Esther Drummond attempts to contact the long disbanded Torchwood and is visited by Jack as a result. The pair survive an attack by a bomber - after Jack - whilst the bomber,though blown to bits,goes on breathing. Gwen and Rhys Williams are living in seclusion in Wales with their baby when Gwen's old colleague Andy tells her that her father Geraint is one of the sick people who cannot die and that the world will be over-populated in a matter of days. Rex and Jack arrive in Wales to bring Gwen back to the States with them. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

In the observation room of the explosion victim, Jack introduces himself as "Owen Harper," referring to the character played by Burn Gorman in Torchwood seasons 1 and 2. See more »

Goofs

When Danes is talking to the Governor's representative, there is no sign on his arm of the IV insertion that was used in his failed execution. There would be some bruising, at the least. See more »

Great Concept and Start to a New Torchwood Season!
21 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode introduces a unique idea from the beginning and sets up the rest of the season. The idea that no one could die even if they wanted to makes your mind think. Of course, there could be advantages to immortality, but there are also so many consequences.

It's great to see Gwen and Jack back once more, as well as Andy, Rhys, Anwen, and new characters! Parts I love include Jack making Esther forget, like Gwen, and using Owen Harper as an alias. Gwen in action with her child is epic, too, and Rex cursing Wales as an American was amusing. Also, the reunion between Jack and Gwen as well as the action scenes afterward was fantastic.

Overall, this season and concept could go in many directions, and I'm looking forward to what's to come next.
