With Torchwood: Miracle Day taking the show from Wales to Los Angeles for the series' fourth season, it makes sense that the lead character, Captain Jack would trade in his wool trench coat for something a bit more climate appropriate.
I think it’s fair to say that Jack’s coat is the most iconic article of clothing on Torchwood. I suppose the runner up would be that glove that brings people back from the dead, but a device like that has about as much use on Miracle Day as a wool coat does in Los Angeles. The “miracle” on Miracle Day is that no one on earth dies. (More on that and the excellent trailer here)

What do you think? Does the new look work or should they have let him sweat it out in the wool one?
Torchwood: Miracle Day set to premiere on STARZ on Friday, July 8th at 10pm ET/PT.
