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

Goofs

Rex is impaled by a spike that comes from the back of the lorry in front of him when it stops suddenly. The spike should have continued to try and move in the direction of the vehicle rather than changing its direction of motion by 180 degrees. See more »

Come on, Torchwood is better than this !
5 October 2013 | by (US) – See all my reviews

Love all the previous torchwood episodes, no matter how wild they seemed, they all had a bit of 'it's possible' about them. sure some were out there, but isn't that what sci-fi is all about?

this new show lacks that however, I don't think there is any possibility that the whole world (except Jack) is going to change all at once, and now it just seems like another bad sci-fi horror series. Tell me, are the writer's the same ones who have been writing Torchwood all along? Did someone bump them on the head? I'm beginning to not care whether I see the next episode.

shame, I liked all the other episodes enough to buy them, or something. tonight's ending suggests that maybe this story line is coming to an end soon so I'll tune in next week and hope for a new plot.
