Okay, it is technically a new series, but in reality, it is actually the fourth revision of a [BBC series], which was a spin-off of their Doctor Who. Since I don’t get out much, it truly is an original series to me, however.
Anyway, what is so fascinating about Torchwood: Miracle Day is that it portrays what could happen (naturally-speaking, of course) if all of a sudden, no one could die. No, we are most definitely not talking about Heaven on Earth here. For while everyone quits dying, the suffering from injuries, disease, starvation, dehydration and just plain old old age remains the same. Hey, they even had one guy blow himself up with a suicide vest that terrorists would envy, and there he was, laying on a hospital table, looking around at the doctors who were looking at what was left of him!
No, that is not the kind of stuff that so attracts me to this show. For it is the reactions by everybody to the possibility of there quickly not being enough food, pain medications and places to put the millions upon millions of invalids that had me spellbound.
Horrified would be another good word to describe my reactions to the scenarios unfolding in the show. For I know what it is like to experience long-term suffering, and I would not welcome the news that it could continue on indefinitely.
Evidently, there is some secret organization that is behind the phenomenon, and what is left of Torchwood Institute operatives, along with a couple of CIA agents and a fairly attractive doctor, are desperately trying to get things back to normal. There has been some hints of extraterrestrial involvement on both sides, but very little has been revealed so far, which means that I will have to keep watching. Okay.
