Torchwood follows the adventures of a team of investigators, led by the enigmatic Captain Jack. Set in the UK in the present day, the team use scavenged alien technology in a very real world to solve crime; both alien and human. Separate from the government. Outside the police. Beyond the United Nations. Everyone who works for Torchwood is young, under 35. Some say that's because it's a new science. Others say it's because they die young...
Torchwood - The Complete 2nd Series came out on DVD
last September, but now the BBC and Warner Home Video are ready to upgrade you to high definition. A Blu-ray Disc release of Torchwood - The Complete 2nd Series
has been announced today, coming to stores on July 7th
. It will come on 4 "BD-50" discs, with high-def widescreen video and English Dolby Surround 5.1 audio. English subtitles are also included. Bonus material hasn't been detailed, but we expect at least the same extras that was found on the DVD version (Deleted Scenes, Outtakes and Featurettes).
It's probable that the early July timing of this release is meant to tie in with either the broadcast debut or home video debut (or both, as the case may be) of Torchwood - The Complete 3rd Series: Children of Earth
. Pricing shown for Season 2 on Blu is $79.98 SRP, but honestly we're wondering if that's correct. That was the cost of the DVD releases for both the first and second seasons, while the Blu-ray version of Season 1 turned out to be $99.98 SRP. So if that changes upward, don't say we didn't warn you! Stay tuned for Blu-ray package art, and any further details we uncover.
