5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 18 Jan 2013
This review is from: Torchwood - Miracle Day (Series 4) [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
The latest series of Torchwood was produced by BBC Worldwide and the American channel Starz. I have got the Blu-ray version. The cover strangely only features three out of the four main characters, Jack, Gwen and Rex. It looks well made and is rated a UK 15 for "strong bloody violence, gore, strong sex and threat". The set consists of 4 discs, with one of the main characters visible on each disc. Discs 1 and 2 contain three episodes each, while 3 and 4 contain only 2. Each episode is introduced by the head writer Russell T Davies, who also wrote Doctor Who from 2005-2010, and John Barrowman, who plays Jack. Each disc contains one or two special features; these include Behind the Scenes, FX on Miracle Day, Motion Comic: Web of Lies, Character profiles and deleted scenes. There is also a commentary available on the first and last episodes by Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner, the executive producers.

Now down to the programme itself. Many have criticised it as it moved away from the direction of the other series of Torchwood, being set mostly in America and developed by American TV companies. The viewing figures in the US were not great, where it aired a week earlier than it did in Britain to the outrage of many fans. Personally, I really enjoyed it. While not being as good as the first 2 series of Torchwood, it was better than Children of Earth in my opinion. The story spans one central plot, with all the episodes linked together. More and more is revealed every episode, and we learn a bit more about Jacks past. To avoid spoilers I won't go through the plot, but it is interesting and most of the episodes are great, although there are one or two which aren't so good. One negative point I would like to make is that it leaves a lot of questions unanswered. The future of Torchwood is unknown, and it ends on a cliffhanger and has a surprising ending that nobody could have predicted.
