Torchwood Miracle Day Preview: Eleven Minute Video Peeks Behind The Scenes Of Miracle Day

Torchwood: Miracle Day’s big premiere on Starz is less than two weeks away. Today, Starz posted an eleven minute video, which takes a look behind the scenes of the series’ fourth season (and first for the network), and offers us a lot of information and plenty of footage from the show.

Torchwood is a British series, spun off from the popular sci-fi show Doctor Who. The show follows (what’s left of) a team of people who investigate strange incidents, often related to something alien or supernatural. Starz released a much shorter behind the scenes look at Miracle Day, but this one is much more extensive.

The video below does a nice job of introducing us to the story and characters, explaining some of the premise to Miracle Day and showing quite a bit of the new season. I’m not sure I love the voice-over narration, but it works as far as explaining what’s going on. Series stars John Barrowman and Eve Myles, along with newcomers Mekhi Phifer and Bill Pullman are also featured in the video as they talk about the roles they play.

Torchwood: Miracle Day begins with a day when 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. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It's said that in four month's time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can't be a natural occurrence - someone's got to be behind it. It's a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking "What is Torchwood?," he's drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.

Torchwood: Miracle Day premieres July 8th, 10 pm e/p on Starz..
