In a brand new press release today (June 16th) Torchwood: Miracle Day on Starz will be at the San Diego Comic Con on Friday July 22, 2011.
This is exciting news, especially for those attending the convention (like yours truly) to get somewhat up close and personal with the cast of Torchwood. The stars in attendance: John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Bill Pullman, Mekhi Phifer, Alexa Havins, Lauren Ambrose all in a panel talking about their show and getting people super excited about the show which will be in week three of airing. Also included on the panel is the phenom writer Jane Espenson who is power house of writing excellent scripts.
They will be there at 10am in Ballroom 20, which holds about 4k people give or take. And if you are a serious fan, the night before, Thursday July 21 at 9:30pm, they will have a special advanced screening of episode 3.
Please note, that while this is technically season 4, according to the press release from Starz, the third episode is numbered 103, meaning that they are looking at this as season 1, episode 3, but don’t tell that to the fans who’ve seen this show from the beginning. And you can’t call it a reboot, because from all the footage that Starz has presented, it has the feel of a continuing story arc, just set in a different city.
With that said, look for coverage here in regards to this panel, and if we are lucky, and we mean LUCKY, maybe an interview or two from the stars. Either way, Torchwood going to the Con is a good thing, especially with so many big studios pulling out this year.
Are you attending Comic Con? If you had the chance to interview a cast member, who would it be? What would your one question be?
