Apologies for the late reviews, folks, but Comic Con completely took over my life these past two weeks. I hope to be fully caught up within the next few days. There will also be a bonus post with pictures from the Episode 3 screening at Comic Con, at which we were surprised by the cast. But for now, “Rendition” and “Dead of Night.” Warning: Contains Spoilers.

I got the chance to catch an advance screening of the first episode on Tuesday night, and it definitely kicked off with a bang…

These are some great pieces of casting although I was gutted to hear that Bill Pullman wouldn’t be playing the president in the new series of Torchwood because that would have been class.
I was really enjoying Phifer in Lie to Me but he didn’t really get a chance to do much in that show so hopefully he’ll get more screen time in Torchwood.
In this new series Phifer will play CIA agent Rex Matheson as a Harvard-educated “golden boy” who is “dangerous, dazzling and reckless, according to the press blurb. Pullman on the other hand will take a darker turn as the devious and psychotic murderer Oswald Jones in the ten-part run.
Although so far this new series seems to have a distinct US vibe coming across the makers are promising that the show will stay true to it’s UK roots. According to Jane Espenson, one of the writers on the show, the upcoming fourth series will pick up where the third series left off rather than be an all new series.
“We have a number of American characters, but please note we’re not a total American drama. [It's a] continuation of [the] UK show, [with] UK scenes and [characters]! “
I’m remaining optimistic about the new series especially after the brilliant Children of Earth.
Torchwood: The New World will air on BBC One in the UK and Starz in the US.
