New Torchwood Trailer - SPOILERS!

“Every child has stopped. Every single child in the whole world.”

Torchwood are up against it in Children of Earth – a new mini series on BBC One this summer featuring a full-blown alien invasion of Earth.

With just three-man Torchwood between mankind and the aliens and a corrupt government department, Torchwood finally comes of age, throws down the shackles of puberty and looks setto live up to its reputation.

Why not check out the all-new HD trailer of Torchwood: Children of Earth, above?

With a superb set of guest stars – Peter Copley (Cracker, Coronation Street, Life on Mars) and Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It, Doctor Who) key among them – Torchwood: Children of Earth has got all the makings of a TV sci-fi classic.

John Barrowman and Eve Myles return with Gareth David Lloyd as Captain Jack Harkness, Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones to fend off an alien invasion that has happened once before – back in the 1960s.

There’s a suggestion that Jack was somehow involved last time around and a certain government department knows all about this, leading to a terrible assault on the Torchwood team.

Written by Russell T Davies, James Moran (Doctor Who, Primeval) and John Fay (Clocking Off, Coronation Street, Robin Hood) and directed by Euros Lyn (whose most notable credits include Doctor Who’s The Girl in the Fireplace and Planet of the Dead) Torchwood: Children of Earth is rumoured to air from Monday June 15th – a special preview showing has been organized at the National Film Theatre on Friday June 12th.
