"Torchwood: Series 4" New Title, Plot Revealed & Character Discriptions!

on Saturday, January 8, 2011

"Torchwood: Series 4" will no longer be called "The New World", it's now to be called "Miracle Day". Personally, I don't really like the new title. It sounds kinda dumb. "The New World" is so much cooler. 
The plot sounds pretty good, but not as amazing as what "Children Of Earth" was. That was a fucking sweet ass series, eventhough it was only 3-part.
Here's the plot details: “The premise is a miracle happens in the world. One day, on Earth, no one dies. The next day, no one dies. The day after that, no one dies. The dying just keep dying … but don’t actually die. The possibility of death ceases to exist. Which is great for some people. But it’s an instant overnight population boom. The earth relies on people dying … What is society going to do now? Some of the answers are beautiful and brave. Some of the reactions are terrifying.”
Now, here are the descriptions of the new characters in the series:
Rex Matheson played by Mekhi Phifer - He is the golden boy, the embodiment of the American dream and has been all his life. Harvard education, Rex is destined for success and could make a fortune in Wall Street or Hollywood, but he chose the CIA because he believes in justice and will fight for it. He can talk his way into anything, then charm his way out, fast. This may be just what he needs as he joins forces with Jack and Gwen to fight a global mystery behind Miracle Day that has them racing from one crisis to another, dodging assassins, blackmail, corruption and conspiracy, from Washington to Wales and the slums of Shanghai.

Esther Drummond played by Alexa Havins - An innocent, in a world of assassins, liars and zealots. She got where she is with the CIA through diligence and application. Hard work keeps Esther focused but she still dreams of active duty as a field agent serving her country. The dream is going to happen faster than she thinks and in no time at all, Esther finds herself running alongside Jack, Gwen and Rex, living off the grid, gun in hand, fighting a global conspiracy against enemies ranging from big business to the state. Its a tough, brutal, hard lifestyle where survival is hard won and life-changing choices have to be made.

But when Oswald survives his own execution, he is given a whole new life. The most infamous man in the world, he becomes the most provocative figure in modern media.
