'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. That might not be the exact case for the network's upcoming sci-fi drama Torchwood: Miracle Day , but the new show won't be sleepy, either. 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.

Here they finally are, the cast  photos for  TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY , including John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harkness, Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper, Kai Owen as Rhys Williams, Mekhi Phifer as Rex Matheson, Bill  Pullman  as Oswald Danes, Lauren Ambrose as Jilly Kitzinger, Alexa Havins as Esther Drummond, and Arlene Tur as Dr. Vera Juarez. Apart  from the original cast, I am especially excited to see Bill Pullman, because that cast photo looks pretty great! Synopsis:   One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next, people keep aging — they get hurt and sick — but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. Read More... //

'Torchwood: Miracle Day' releases first footage, teases Eliza Dushku web series

It's not much. But we'll take it. "Torchwood: Miracle Day" has thus far only teased its upcoming Starz run with cryptic, artsy promos containing title art and a shot of a globe on the verge of detonation. Now they're finally rolling out some meatier spots. IO9 points to this 10-second clip which, while brief, does show returning cast members John Barrowman and Eve Myles joined by new additions Mekhi Phifer, Bill Pullman and Lauren Ambrose. Also? Explosions!It's just what we've been waiting for, but at the moment, we're a bit more preoccupied with some gossip coming from the "Torchwood" front.

Davies in penning the new season, and she recently announced a companion web series... starring Eliza Dushku?It sure seems that way.
