Torchwood

9:10 p.m. ET – Saturday, July 23 on Space

Torchwood goes on the run and finds a new enemy. As they launch a raid
on PhiCorp headquarters, Jack must confront the mysterious Oswald Danes.

BBC Worldwide and Starz announced today the production of an interactive app tied to “Torchwood: Miracle Day.”

The app, titled “Torchwood: Web of Lies”, will feature 10, three-minute motion comic narratives providing clues to “Torchwood: Miracle Day.”

The app and first motion comic narrative will be available for download on iTunes prior to the premiere of “Torchwood: Miracle Day” – produced by BBC Worldwide Productions, airing this summer on SPACE.  

Additional narratives and games will be available for download following each week’s broadcast transmission.

“Torchwood: Web of Lies” is an episodic interactive experience for iOS that fuses together motion comic and gameplay elements to tell an original and digitally exclusive Torchwood story.  Players will participate in a parallel storyline to “Torchwood: Miracle Day” that includes lead characters Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper – voiced by John Barrowman and Eve Myles.

“Torchwood: Web of Lies” runs alongside weekly premieres of “Torchwood: Miracle Day”, providing fans with a way to engage in the world of Torchwood between episodes.  It reveals a past day in the lives of Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper – a day they’ve both forgotten.  The events of that day fuel a modern day conspiracy-laced treasure hunt, as Holly Mokri, voiced by Eliza Dushku (“Dollhouse,” “Tru Calling,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”), labors to uncover the secrets of Miracle Day. Each week a new episode unlocks, allowing players to access another piece of original motion comic narrative and game which ties into and extends plot developments of the show, as well as providing new twists in its own narrative.

The first narrative and game will be released promotionally and the remaining nine can be purchased inside the app in packs of three, each for $0.99.  A special bundle for all 10 narratives and game can be purchased for $2.99

Developed by BBC Worldwide Productions and BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment and Games, “Torchwood: Web of Lies” is written by “Torchwood: Miracle Day” writers Jane Espenson and Ryan Scott. The motion comic and app is published by BBC Worldwide, with Double Barrel (“Tron: Legacy,” “Repo Men,” “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”) producing the motion comic and Powerful Robot (“Star Wars,” “Green Lantern,” “Scooby Doo,” “Total Drama”) producing the app.

Captain Jack Harkness returns exclusively to SPACE for the fourth series of fan favourite TORCHWOOD, premiering Saturday, July 9 at 9 p.m. ET. Starring John Barrowman as the immortal Captain Jack, the previous instalment, TORCHWOOD: CHILDREN OF EARTH, garnered a dedicated fan audience and scored impressive numbers on SPACE, with more than one million viewers tuning in over its five-day run.* 

The first episode of TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY, “The New World”, begins with a day when nobody dies. When death itself comes to a halt, the whole world faces its greatest danger yet. CIA agent Rex Matheson has only one clue – the name “Torchwood.”

Alongside Barrowman, TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY stars Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper) and newcomers Mekhi Phifer (Rex Matheson), Alexa Havins (Esther Drummond) and Bill Pullman (Oswald Danes). Russell T. Davies and Julie Gardner return as executive producers.

In addition to TORCHWOOD: MIRACLE DAY, viewers can tune in to SPACE all Summer long for a schedule full of exciting programming.
