Torchwood: Children of Earth Press Pack

The BBC Press Office have today released a press pack for Children of Earth, the upcoming series of Torchwood which will recieve it's TV debut next month. The new seven page press pack includes a short synopsis for the new series, along with interviews with Russell T Davies who writes episodes one, three and five, John Barrowman who plays Jack Harkness, Eve Myles who plays Gwen Cooper, Gareth David-Llyod who plays Ianto Jones and Kai Owen who plays Rhys Williams. When asked about the new series, Russell T Davies said this; "It was a story I'd had in mind for ages – I'm just glad the BBC gave me a canvas big enough to tell the tale! But underneath the sci-fi and the aliens there's something very relevant to the world, I hope, the way we sit in the West and watch footage of atrocities in different countries and imagine it's all so far away, and so impossible here – which is a nice, comfy lie we tell ourselves. That was the heart of it. I wanted to tell a story in which civilisation snaps, in which we turn on ourselves, in which nothing is safe. Plenty of people live like that on this planet. In this story, it's Britain's turn!" The press pack can be read by clicking here at the BBC Press Office. Torchwood: Children of Earth will be broadcast across five consecutive nights starting from the 20th of July on both BBC One and the BBC HD channel.
