nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the
next, and the next, people keep ageing - they get hurt and sick - but they
never die. The result: a population boom, overnight.
With all the extra
people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month's time, the human
race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural event – someone’s got
to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates
a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute.
As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?" he’s drawn into a world of
adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.
