Torchwood: Children of Earth Premieres Tonight

The Blot is unbelievably excited for the North American premiere of Torchwood Season Three tonight on BBC America! Torchwood: Children of Earth (a.k.a. Torchwood Season 3) is a five night miniseries event that starts tonight, Monday, July 20th and continues with a new episode every night for the rest of this week. Torchwood has consistently been one of my favorite shows since it debuted in 2006, and it has taken a lot of willpower to not read any spoilers or reviews of Children of Earth since it aired the week of July 6th in Great Britain.

I have no idea why the BBC decided to shrink such a popular show’s season down to just five episodes, but I am glad to know the show continues to bring in huge ratings and has graduated over the years from BBC Three to BBC Two and now airs on the more prominent BBC One channel. If you’ve never watched Torchwood before I highly recommend renting the DVD box sets, especially if you’re a fan of Doctor Who (the show Torchwood spun-off from).

Torchwood: Children of Earth airs every night this week (July 20-24) on BBC America at 9/8c. Each episode of this five part mini-series is an hour and fifteen minutes long and is then followed by a 15 minute “Behind the Scenes” show that looks at the making of each episode, so be sure to set your DVRs accordingly!
