Torchwood HQ is gone, but the need for Captain Jack (John Barrowman) and Gwen (Eve Myles) is greater than ever to solve the mystery of why people have suddenly stopped dying. Bill Pullman (Independence Day) and Mekhi Phifer (ER, 8 Mile) also star in Torchwood's first stateside season, seen last summer on Starz. All 10 episodes; Many Extras!
Several weeks ago we passed along
a scan of a catalog mailed out by the BBC America Shop, which displayed an availability date of March 13th for Torchwood - Miracle Day
in the USA. A short time ago today, the folks at BBC Video formally announced the title for DVD and Blu-ray Disc, giving the finalized North American street date as being a few weeks later than that: April 3rd
! As previously reported, the cost is $49.98 SRP in the USA for the DVD, and $59.99 SRP for the high-def Blu-ray Disc. Both come with all 10 episodes running 529 minutes on 4 discs, plus bonus material:
- Audio Commentary
- Character Profiles
- Special Effects feature
- Behind the Scenes special
- iTunes intros
- Torchwood motion comic "Web of Lies"
Just like the BBC changed the schedule when finalizing this title, they also changed the package art a bit from the images we've previously shown you. Essentially they're the same basic idea, except Gwen and Rex have been added in to back up Captain Jack. You can check out the Blu-ray and DVD box art immediately below (plus the Amazon link to pre-order either one), and at the bottom you'll find an online video trailer for the title (note that there's a bit of traffic-accident/hospital-related blood near the beginning of it, but probably nothing that Mekhi Phifer fans didn't previously see on ER
...fair warning, though, if you're squeamish!):
