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

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 »

dos torchwood have to kill everyone ???
10 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

Dos torchwood have to kill everyone ? I mean like poor Esther i thought Rex and Esther where supposed to be the new torchwood but no bang and shes dead just at the end its really gotten dark remember when jack killed his grandson gezz talk about heavy TV give me doctor who any ole day I liked the show but it just seems to get darker and darker and i was a bit sickened with the whole Oswald Danes thing i don't think he was crucial to the story and he seemed to be thrown in there just for shock value also Torchwood and doctor who are meant to be linked isn't it a bit odd that the doctor never noticed that the entire human race couldn't die ? seems like something he should have picked up on all in all it was griping but a bit to dark for my taste watch it if you have a strong stomach but not if your looking for a doctor who pick up
