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 no-one 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 Rex is on the plane ready to take-off for the U.K. a right hand is shown reaching over to grab the phone and disconnect the call, the wrist has no watch. Yet when Rex recalls the sequence later after he sees Captain Jack Harkness save Gwen, Rhys and him - we see a left hand with Jack's leather cuff (his vortex manipulator) clearly visible. And if the 'right hand' had been Jack's we would have seen his wristwatch as he wears it on his right wrist. See more »
