‘Torchwood: Children of Earth’ Trailer Debuts

When Torchwood finally returns for the new mini-season, it looks like there’ll be the spills, chills, and explosions we’ve come to expect from Capt. Jack and company. Only this time, they’re blowing stuff up for the kids…

Catatonic, hiveminded children, a government conspiracy, Ianto manning the information hub and seemingly seeing some action (of the fighting kind), Gwen almost getting blown to bits, Jack and Ianto snogging (Ianto getting the other type of action), Gwen double-wielding pistols (hot!), a screaming guy suffering from severe burns (Capt. Jack?), an old man who seems to have lived through a similar experience when he was young, and some veiled exploding goo that I’m sure has nothing to do with Cloverfield. And of course Capt. Jack already knows about who or what is behind everything. Can’t. Wait.

It definitely looks like they’ve upped the ante for this five-ep epic. Will Jack, Gwen and Ianto be going it alone? I didn’t see any potential new team members, did you? And who or what is trying to grab/control all the little ones? Come, speculate with me. Share your theories and thoughts below!

About Tamara Brooks

A few things I wondered about as a kid: Why didn't Wonder Woman punch more bad guys in the face on the tv show?; How does Superman flying around the Earth turn back time?; Could someone really catch bullets with their teeth?; Why didn't the liquid bits of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man cause 3rd degree burns on whoever it landed on? Because melted marshmallow is up there with molten hot lava.
