    Torchwood: Children of Earth - In one epic story told over five nights the new series, to be broadcast on BBC One (UK) and BBC AMERICA (U.S.) later this year, promises to be Torchwood's greatest adrenalin-fueled, high octane adventure yet.
After two full series (UK-speak for "seasons") of Torchwood, the show's studio, producers, crew and cast have decided to forgo putting together a regular season in 2009, while the show it was spun off from does the same. While Doctor Who is doing four separate specials, airing fairly evenly throughout the year (and reportedly filming in high-def for the first time ever...yay!), Torchwood will instead go the mini-series route. Torchwood: Children of Earth will air on the BBC in the UK, and also on BBC America in the USA, over the course of 5 straight nights (one installment each evening). It is expected to air in both markets simultaneously, in either June or July. At the bottom you'll see the BBC America trailer for this "Series 3" mini-series, courtesy of YouTube (note: some mature content).

The Rumor Mill update posted yesterday by our friends at The Digital Bits report that "Torchwood: Season 3" (meaning the Children of Earth mini-series, naturally) is coming out from The BBC and distributor Warner Home Video here in the USA on both DVD and high-definition Blu-ray Disc in July. Our thanks to Bits-runner Bill Hunt for the heads-up about this info! Stay tuned, and we'll keep you updated as more info comes along about this release.
