Torchwood: Miracle Day on Starz, has released, within a few hours today six character featurette videos, in what one could call viral marketing extreme. As each video was released, there was a message at the end of each one to search for the next.

But thanks to dailymotion and Doctorwhotv.co.uk you are able to see all of them one after the other without going on a scavenger hunt.
The videos are done as if these were the characters last will and testament, and a clear warning to trust no one. These videos instill a sense of ‘fear’ of what to expect, what is to come, and how the government is at the heart of it.
The first up is Captain Jack Harkness, and he is scared, scared of what the miracle actually is.
Second up is Esther Drummond and is possibly the scariest of all the character profiles, as she is bloodied. Her fear is truly apparent and it comes through, that humanity can’t win.
Third up is Rex Matheson, former CIA agent. He has discovered the secret. Trust no one.
Fourth up is Gwen Cooper. She speaks in the past tense. What is going on?
Fifth up is Jilly K. She is one of those snoops who will go after a story, no matter what. Get out of her way.
Last up is Oswald Danes, the convicted killer, who has become some sort of born again speaker, which is probably the second scariest thing on this video.
There are new scenes that have not been shown, and a new idea as to what Miracle Day is all about. Also these character profiles try to engage not only the returning fan, but also get the new fan on board, to explain a bit that Torchwood is something special.
Check out the video and get even more excited about the upcoming fourth season.
The series is being developed by BBC Worldwide Productions.
Look for Torchwood on screens on Starz July 8th at 10pm. Prepare for awesome.
Torchwood: Miracle Day stars: John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Mekhi Phifer, and Bill Pullman. One day nobody dies, thus setting off a chain of events that pits the remaining Torchwood crew with America’s CIA to get to the bottom of this issue.
