From creator Russell T Davies, Torchwood‘s new 10-part fourth series begins on BBC One next month.
Miracle Day introduces Mekhi Phifer (ER, Lie To Me) as CIA operative Rex Matheson, Bill Pullman (Independence Day) as convicted child killer Oswald Danes, Alexa Havins as CIA employee Esther Drummond and Arlene Tur as surgeon Dr Vera Juarez, while John Barrowman and Eve Myles return to their roles as Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper respectively.
Here are ten teasing lines of dialogue from the opening episode…
» ‘It’s not “touch wood”; it’s Torchwood.’
» ‘Warfare’s even worse when the soldiers refuse to die.’
» ‘How do you investigate something that isn’t happening?’
» ‘The Founding Fathers had me in mind when they wrote the Constitution, don’t you think?’
» ‘What are you feeding her – lard?’
» ‘They brought me in as an expert, but I don’t know what the hell it is.’
» ‘Don’t follow us. Don’t even try. We just want to be left alone.’
» ‘What if you detach the head? Would he stay alive without his head?’
» ‘Anyone who worked for Torchwood was killed in action – and they died young.’
» ‘Owen Harper, FBI!’
