Torchwood: Children Of Earth trailer to get UK/US simultaneous preview

Torchwood fans in the UK will be given a sneak preview of the brand new series of the award-winning drama. From 9.00pm on Thursday 5 February, a 60-second trailer of Torchwood: Children Of Earth will be shown on the Torchwood website,

The trailer will be simultaneously broadcast at New York ComicCon 2009 – where actress Eve Myles and director Euros Lyn will be taking part in a panel session. Torchwood has proved a big hit with audiences in the United States and is BBC America's highest-rated series.

In one epic story told over five nights the new series, to be broadcast for the first time on BBC One later this year, promises to be Torchwood's greatest adrenalin-fuelled, high-octane adventure yet.

Torchwood: Children Of Earth rejoins Captain Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and Ianto Jones (Gareth David Lloyd), who are still coming to terms with the death of two of their closest friends.

Despite their pain, they have a job to do. This time they are faced with their fiercest threat to date – one which throws the future of Torchwood and the entire human race spiralling into danger.

They battle against the odds but do they stand a chance of saving humankind?

Torchwood is executive produced by Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner. The producer is Peter Bennett (Doctor Who).

Torchwood is written by Russell T Davies, John Fay (Clocking Off, Coronation Street) and James Moran (Doctor Who, Torchwood) and directed by Euros Lyn (best director in BAFTA Cymru TV Awards, Doctor Who, George Gently).

Torchwood: Children of Earth is a BBC Wales for BBC Drama production.
