Torchwood: Children of Earth is a science fiction miniseries that was co-produced between the BBC and US channel Starz. It continues the stories of the characters last seen in Torchwood: Children of Earth, while adding new ones and exploring a whole new plot.
Torchwood Three has been disbanded and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and her husband Rhys (Kai Owen) are living in hiding with their infant daughter in the Welsh countryside. Their lives are turned upside down, however, when a mysterious event, known as The Miracle, causes everyone on Earth to become immortal, though not indestructible. After they are attacked by a squad intent on incapacitating them with extreme prejudice, Gwen teams back up with Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), the only other surviving member of Torchwood, to investigate. They soon find themselves teaming up with rogue CIA agents Rex Matheson (Mekhi Phifer) and Esther Drummond (Alexa Havins), and also find their paths crossing that of paedophile-turned-notorious-celebrity Oswald Danes (Bill Pullman).
