TORCHWOOD - Children Of Earth: UK Air Dates

Well, it looks like the week of 4th July to 10th July for the transmission of the five episodes of Torchwood: Children Of Earth. According to the BBC Press Office the programme is currently unplaced during that week (it means they can't decide or can't reveal the actual time of day it's going out).

Programme copy for 'Day One' has also now been released and there are links to Days Two - Five at the Press Office link above but be warned there are likely to be spoilers in there:

"Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones (John Barrowman, Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd) return for a new adventure in Torchwood – Children Of Earth, a five-part series for BBC One.

An ordinary day becomes one of terror, as every single child in the world stops. A message is sent to all the governments of Earth: "We are coming." But, as a trap closes around Captain Jack, the sins of the past are returning and long-forgotten events from 1965 threaten to reveal an awful truth.

Torchwood is forced underground as the government takes swift and brutal action. As members of the team are hunted down, Britain risks becoming a rogue state. Meanwhile, the mysterious and powerful 456 draws ever-closer.

Captain Jack, Gwen and Ianto are helpless as events escalate to such a degree that mankind faces the end of civilisation itself.

John Barrowman plays Captain Jack Harkness; Eve Myles plays Gwen Cooper; and Gareth David-Lloyd plays Ianto Jones. Torchwood also stars Kai Owen as Rhys Williams; Peter Capaldi (Doctor Who, Skins) as John Frobisher; Paul Copley (Coronation Street, The Bill) as Clem; Liz May Brice (Bad Girls, The Bill) as Johnson, Lucy Cohu (Forgiven) as Alice Carter; Nicholas Farrell (Casualty 1909) as Brian Green; Susan Brown (Brideshead Revisited) as Bridget Spears; and Cush Jumbo (Harley Street) as Lois Habiba"

    So, only (just over) two weeks to go - can't wait! I hope the Beeb start advertising it more. Other than online, I haven't seen any trailers on the goggle box.

    Regarding the CD track titles:
    #2. Does this mean we'll be seeing a Torchwood / Gavin & Stacy cross-over? :)
    #3. He has a daughter?
    #11. Oooh.
    #14 and 26. Yay. Lots of Ianto.
    #40. Next time, eh? So they are planning on continuing Torchwood next year?
