'Torchwood' Creator Russell T Davies on Captain Jack's Dangerous Secret and Much More

Some writers tinker around the edges with their shows, but Russell T Davies, the creator of 'Torchwood,' is not one to play it safe. For the acclaimed 'Torchwood: Children of Earth,' which aired in 2009, Davies redesigned the sci-fi thriller as a short-run miniseries to make it more accessible to newcomers. It worked: The propulsive 'Children of Earth' was a hit for the BBC worldwide. This season, the drama will change networks in the U.S. -- it debuts on Starz July 8 -- and creatively speaking, Davies is not letting 'Torchwood' rest on its laurels. In the interview below, Davies speaks in depth about the changes he'll unveil in 'Torchwood: Miracle Day,' which stars John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Mekhi Phifer, Lauren Ambrose and Bill Pullman.

How Much Stuff is Starz's Torchwood Going to Blow Up? (VIDEO)

With Spartacus: Blood and Sand and Camelot under its belt in the original programming department, cable channel Starz isn't afraid to turn up the sensationalism dial. Typically, if a show has "Starz" on its front cover, you can expect rippling pecs, bare breasts, and dismemberments. And why not? It's premium cable.

The latest promo from Starz places an emphasis on the series' action—and features an unholy...

First Look: Captain Jack's 'Torchwood: Miracle Day' Makeover

When the new season of 'Torchwood' arrives on Starz July 8, Captain Jack Harkness will be sporting a new look. Not only was most of the sci-fi show's new season filmed in the United States rather than the U.K., other aspects of the drama got a makeover as well. Creator Russell T Davies commissioned the show's costume designer, Shawna Trpcic (a veteran of 'Dollhouse,' 'Firefly' and 'Angel') to make a new version of Jack's iconic coat. We've exclusively got the first photo of Jack in the new season of 'Torchwood,' wearing his new and improved greatcoat.

New Torchwood Trailer Arrives

Up until now, the promos for the new series of sci-fi drama Torchwood have been limited to voice-overs across basic imagery. But now comes the full new trailer courtesy of American cable network Starz, and it’s loaded with actors, action and one or two choice lines. With the US company stepping in to co-produce the new series, the setting has naturally been switched across the Atlantic, though from the looks of this, we’ll still get to see the odd nod to the home country. And though the show’s creator Russell T Davies is still in charge, he’s got a whole new, much more expensive toy box to play with, so we’re treated to exploding helicopters, exploding buildings and the sort of cast he and his team could only dream about before.
