Torchwood, Children of EarthCautionClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.


Torchwood returns for a third series in which the team face their greatest threat yet, putting their survival, and that of the human race, in grave danger. In 1965 twelve children are gathered together on a deserted moor when they become surrounded by a harsh, bright light, and then suddenly they are gone. Back in the present day, all over planet Earth, children stop moving. Stop playing. Stop laughing. Stop everything. Then, as one, they begin to speak with the same voice, announcing to the governments of the world the imminent arrival of a new alien threat. It becomes clear to the Torchwood team that this isn't the aliens' first visit to Earth, and a terrible price is going to be paid for sins of the past.

Sci Fi at its finest

Torchwood - above the law, beyond the government..... in deep doodoo. Yes Torchwood returned for a 5 night run in glorious style, and while die hard fans may be unsure as to where we go from here, you can ALL rest assured that from here we boldly go where other sci fi never did - into the hearts of anyone who has children. The story starts out slowly, the only way to start, children are literally stopping in their tracks, parents treat it as though the children are being unruly, then it becomes clear, the alien known to us only as 4-5-6 has control and is using the young of earth as a voice box, but for what purpose? We see hearts broken, cars blown up and not a second wasted. Torchwood - will Jack return? Will there be a cross-over into a Doctor Who episode? Only Time-lords can tell! Buy this season and revel in the wonder of what will stand tall as a Great British Show.

Loved it

This is a really emotional series and I still can't decide whether it was better with just 5 episodes. I wanted to see more, especially because my favourite character died (Ianto - Gareth-David Lloyd). I hope to God and the devil he comes back somehow and Jack of course. This will effect you a lot, you also see that real life events are much more scary than the fake horror films. Please bring back Ianto and make another series x

Made for an exciting week...

Having watched Torchwood on/off since it started (I love Doctor Who and Captain Jack but never totally got into Torchwood) I was intruiged by the adverts for this series and watched it all. And wow - did not regret it. Even without a massive previous connection to the characters, I was in floods of tears at the end of Episode 4 (brilliant performances from both John Barrowman and Gareth David-Lloyd) and also at the end of Episode 5. This series was very well filmed and didn't suffer from only being 5 episodes long (though I don't think anyone would've objected to more). I also feel it deserves credit for being very daring with the content - the use of children was clever and different. The best and most shocking moment was the one with Steven at the very end, I did not see it coming and I was amazed they actually showed the whole thing. Very good. Absolutely brilliant - give it a try.
