'Torchwood': New teaser trailer -- VIDEO

Very excited about Starz teaming with the producers of Torchwood for a new version of the UK hit that’s (mostly) set in the U.S. Below is a teaser for the show which debuts July 8 but, fair warning, there’s no footage of the actors…

    I was so sad when the show ended in the U.K. [SPOILER!] And with pretty much all the characters written or killed off, that only leaves Jack for the U.S. version. Is John Barrowman going to be in this? I really hope so. It wouldn’t be the same without him.

    • JAO

      Yes, Barrowman and Gwen will be back with new characters. I love this show and am glad that they are remaking it. Can’t wait!!

    • Durp

      This isnt a reboot. Its a continuation with the all the characters from the show who are still alive. Only difference is now that it Is set in america which is stupid as Torchwood is a secret BRITISH organisation.

      • AB

        Then tell the UK to shell out the $ to produce it, or stop whining. At least the show is coming back.

      • Neo

        Actually, although it is a secret UK organization… Torchwood has many branches…to include the US! Uk had its chance now its our turn lol

  • Clare

    Yes Capt Jack is in this

    I cannot frackin’ wait!!!

  • Fido

    British quirkiness with American money – rock on !!!

  • Nina

    John Barrowman as Capt. Jack better be in this or I’m not watching it!!!…Oh, I’m lying. I’m gonna give it a shot. I miss Torchwood so much. They better not dial down the gay/bi factor or it will piss me off. We need a non-stereotype gay/bi main character to counteract the joy of “Glee”.

      clearly you have not seen Spartacus on Starz … they dont seem to worry too much

      There was a whole controversy about this when Starz took over Torchwood. At first, Starz wanted to make Capt Jack straight and John Barrowman (among many others) said “Hell, no!” Fortunately, the Starz people got their heads out of their asses. Captain Jack is in the show, he is still played by JB, and he is still Captain Jack. Yay!

      (Although it will probably be toned down a little bit – boo.)

    I’m interested to see this. I’m still disappointed in a choice a character made at the end of Children of Earth which I think makes him/her virtually irredeemable. I want to see how they handle that character in the new series.

    • Flyer

      I know what you’re saying. I always sensed, though, that the character had a tortured soul. I suspected that wasn’t the first time a horrific choice was made. It will be interesting to see if/how the choice in Children of Earth is addressed.

      • Sara

        If you’re referring to Jack’s “choice” re his grandson – it wssn’t much of a choice. If he’d done differently, things would have been even worse.

    “Torchwood” back on July 8? Best birthday present EVER.

  • mac

    The teaser is US only… hopefully the show, unlike the publicity, will remember its roots.

  • Doctor Who Fan

    I watched Tochwood before becoming a Doctor Who fan, was sad the last season was only 5 episodes. At least this one is 10 and is on Starz let the alien sex and violence begin!
