If you haven't seen the show, Miracle Day kicks off when suddenly, all over the world, people simply stop dying. Of course, the global media heralds this as a miracle, missing completely the huge questions and inevitable consequences of the phenomenon. CIA agent Rex Matheson, played by Mekhi Pfifer, set out to investigate the source of this sudden immortality, leading him John Barrowman's Captain Jack Harkness, an immortal con man and leader of the now-defunct alien-hunting Torchwood Institute.
The cast includes Lauren Ambrose, Eve Myles, Alexa Havins, and Bill Pullman as a death row inmate who was the first recorded individual to avoid death when he was being executed on Miracle Day. In the first clip, you may have also noticed that the antagonistic gentleman from the CIA is played by John De Lancie, who is best known for his recurring role as Q on Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The Torchwood: Miracle Day episode "End of the Road" airs on Starz Friday, August 26th at 10:00 pm ET/PT.
