    I really hope this is gonna be a good season.The plot sounds interesting, but I`m afraid, beacuse without Tosh, Owen and now also Ianto, with Gwen as a mother, without Hub and in USA instead Cardiff, it`s not the same show anymore:(

    I bet something big will happen at the beginning – like on series 3, big moment. This series will be awesome because it’s gonna be bigger and a lot more exiting – the last 3 were totally amazing. This will be hard because the Filmer’s will have to try tie every thing together so it makes sence why Jack dose every thing he dose. It will be great – the Actors are really good and will be able to pull it off!!!! Can’t wait!!!!

    There might be more series after this – it probably depends on how it ends. I Really Really Really Really Really Really Really Really Really Really Really Really Really Really Really – Never Ending Amount Of Hope – hope they make another couple of Torchwood series after this one because it is Brill!!!!

    He meets a guy in a restaurant – a waiter. He also has ‘feelings’ for Gwen.

    There wasn’t the funding, nor production capacity for it to return wholly to Wales. In Miracle Day – you’ll still see a lot of South Wales. It was either the US / UK co-production, or nothing!

    It’s the same show, two years on. Torchwood is a dangerous place to work – and Jack told Gwen on her first day as a member of Torchwood, she’d not get close to the team as members tended to die young.

    The new show features Jack, Gwen, Rhys & Andy, plus a host of top class stars. It will have global appeal.

    @Holly-Rose Tomlinson

    There are ‘possibly 7 seasons in the pipeline’. Depends how each season is received though, as US networks tend to cancel early if targets aren’t met. Miracle Day should be a crowd puller, though.

    I can’t see Captain Jack or Gwen going, but there will be a significant death – or deaths during Miracle Day.

    The first episode is called death is not an option so oviously no one dies – or do they!

    Finally, some footage from Miracle Day! Glad to see there’s still some humour along with all of the action.

    @Chris Williams
    But if you think about it Gwen has always had feelings for Jack. Take the episode ‘Meat’ for example Rhys said “I don’t know if i like you hanging about with all these hansom men hanging about” Gwen then said “there is only one where i’m sitting” and kissed Rhys but looked at Jack, so could there be something there and also at the beginning of series 2 Jack said to Gwen “I came back for you” then he found the wedding ring (which happened to be on her finger) There could also be something there?..

    he will die and come back to life for ever as long as there is a universe as rose used the TARDIS vortex to bring him permantly back to life but mind u jack did tell the ten doctor and martha jones that people back home used to call me the face of boe so this leads me to belive he does die when hes about 5 million years old r something but it was never made 100% clear wheater he is the face of boe r not so u can just say he is immortal the doctor did tell him in the eipisode utopia that hes and impossable annomaly even the TARDIS tryed to sake him of but jack held onto the outside of it and travled throught the time vortex the only person that has ever done that the doctor told him not even time lords can do that hope this help u with ur question

    It would be awesome if there was a reference to the Doctor being imprisoned in area 51. Would make it remain close to Doctor who.

    I hope that they dont overly american-ise the series because I thought that one of the key ideas of torchwood was that it was this mysterious old BRITISH institution that operates with no higher authority (execpt the monarch although I think thats gone without victoria)

    Im all for the series making the move from wales to america if it means that the show is kept alive, although the new team members would have to be very very excellent to even come near how brilliant the old team was

    Wonder what the new hub will look like???
