I have seen the old and now watching the new starz one. I am so totally loving it. I mean a world when no one dies.

I'm enjoying it, but the nature of the miracle is so inconsistent, it's really frustrating. With shows like this, it's best to just sit back and enjoy it scratch a little below the surface and nothing actually makes sense. But here it is, people are not just not dead, they're SO alive, women with broken necks can walk. Man is blown up and retains consciousness. Detached arms can move. Then suddenly loads of people are in comas, unlikely to wake up. I just don't understand what is so objectionable about incinerating people who are never going to wake up. That's not a concentration camp, it just makes sense in a world where people don't stop breathing.

Are they healing? That's something that hasn't been explained, it's kind of a vital point.

I should probably not read this thread - I love Torchwood, but I haven't seen Miracle Day yet because I'm waiting for my partner to catch up. I only have to agonize through Children of Earth again (HELP!!!) and then I can watch Miracle Day.

I was a big fan of Torchwood, I really enjoyed the first few series, so was looking forward to this new series. But oh dear, never been so bored :-( I watched the whole of episode 1 as I'd been looking forward to it, and seen maybe 10 mins of episode's 2 and 3 in case it picked up. But no. Look, if I wanted to watch people sitting around and talking all the time I'd watch BBC Parliament.

A real shame.

I'm afraid I agree with you, Duke, the new series is not a patch on the old ones :-(

I'm still watching it as I'm intrigued to see where it's going but it's overly long. Would have made a better 6-parter.

Torchwood has been fan****intastic up until this latest series which appears to be made to appeal to the US market .... always a recipe for disaster ....

I love Torchwood. I was so disappointed after losing Ianto in the last season, and I haven't really gotten attached to any of the new characters. Conceptually, I am really enjoying the plot. But I'm behind...
