THIS PROGRAMME CONTAINS SOME SCENES WHICH SOME VIEWERS MAY FIND UPSETTING

0:00:020:00:06

6am is the appointed time of death for Oswald Danes.

0:00:060:00:09

Members of the public have gathered outside the penitentiary,

0:00:090:00:13

but the planned protests against the death sentence have failed

0:00:130:00:16

to appear, which isn't surprising given the nature of the offence.

0:00:160:00:19

A former schoolteacher convicted in 2006 of the rape and murder of 12-year-old Susie Kabina,

0:00:190:00:26

Danes will be remembered for his infamous line of defence.

0:00:260:00:30

Upon his arrest, he told the police, "She should've run faster."

0:00:300:00:34

The condemned is permitted to make a final statement.

0:00:450:00:48

Do you have anything to say?

0:00:480:00:50

Did you ever hear of Torchwood?

0:02:150:02:17

Never mind that. Guess what I just heard.

0:02:170:02:20

You know Steve Reynolds? Well, it turns out his wife is sick.

0:02:200:02:22

She has, like, leukaemia or something like that.

0:02:220:02:25

Whatever it is, it sounded long-term.

0:02:250:02:28

-It's British. The Torchwood Institute.

-Hello? Are you listening?

0:02:280:02:32

You see, if Steve's gotta come home that leaves a space in Venezuela.

0:02:320:02:35

I spent 18 months working out the Maracaibo Routes, so it's mine.

0:02:350:02:39

-I get promoted!

-Congratulations.

0:02:390:02:41

-Thank you.

-And Steve's only been married six months.

0:02:410:02:44

All you want from me, you know? It's a tragedy.

0:02:440:02:46

All the same, this thing might be worth following.

0:02:460:02:48

It just got sent down. The word "Torchwood"

0:02:480:02:50

has been emailed to every single east-coast section chief completely bypassing security.

0:02:500:02:54

Just one word - Torchwood.

0:02:540:02:57

Following up this Torchwood incident, just wondering if you can access the EU files.

0:02:570:03:00

No, it's not "Touchwood," it's "Torchwood". T-O-R-C-H-W...

0:03:000:03:05

So what is Torchwood anyway?

0:03:050:03:06

I've looked it up. It's pretty freaky stuff.

0:03:060:03:08

-I'll send it to you now.

-'Sounds more intelligence, not clandestine.'

0:03:080:03:12

-Are you getting this?

-'If it's got the title "institute", that means that it's been'

0:03:120:03:16

officially sanctioned by the UK Government, which we all know

0:03:160:03:18

'is a big hassle because that administration is like kindergarten.'

0:03:180:03:21

It's gone. It just got wiped like a virus.

0:03:210:03:25

-It just vanished.

-OK. Well, I guess that's that.

0:03:250:03:27

Now, go ask about Steve's wife.

0:03:270:03:29

Get a proper diagnosis. We need a timeline on this.

0:03:290:03:32

And pass that Torchwood thing on to somebody else. It has absolutely nothing to do with me.

0:03:320:03:36

'Rex? Rex?!'

0:03:460:03:49

-You OK?

-Yeah. Yeah. Dunno. Just...

0:03:520:03:55

..bad dream.

0:03:560:03:58

-What about?

-Oh. Oh, what d'you think?

0:03:580:04:03

Torchwood.

0:04:070:04:08

His pulse is fast and weak. Systolic BP of 70.

0:04:300:04:33

Beats me how he's still alive.

0:04:330:04:36

Rex, my name is Dr Juarez, OK?

0:04:360:04:37

We're taking you straight into surgery.

0:04:370:04:39

-Is he OK? His name is Rex Matheson.

-You family?

0:04:390:04:42

-No, I'm just a colleague. We work...

-It's family only.

0:04:420:04:44

He's the second one tonight... DOAs who just won't die.

0:04:440:04:48

We had a jumper this afternoon. 22 floors.

0:04:480:04:50

Everything pulverized. Pneumothorax, both sides, but she wouldn't die. Same thing.

0:04:500:04:56

Just wouldn't die.

0:04:560:04:58

Don't be so suspicious.

0:05:380:05:42

What they flying past for?

0:05:420:05:43

Because they can. This is God's own country, that's all.

0:05:430:05:46

Just looking. Now stop it.

0:05:460:05:49

So went outside all on my own.

0:05:560:06:00

'Twas midnight, not a sound to be heard.

0:06:000:06:03

And I looked up and a woman came out of the sky.

0:06:030:06:07

Ah! Shining she was, like moonlight, her eyes white, blazing white.

0:06:070:06:12

And then she started to sing like a thousand choirs.

0:06:120:06:15

One woman with a thousand voices and it was beautiful...

0:06:150:06:19

That's enough, don't you think?

0:06:190:06:20

Who's being paranoid now?

0:06:200:06:22

You promised you'd keep her away from this stuff.

0:06:220:06:24

Yeah, well, be fair. She's too young.

0:06:240:06:26

She thinks it all sounds like a fairy tale.

0:06:260:06:28

It was a nightmare, Gwen. Your life back then was a nightmare, love.

0:06:280:06:32

KNOCK AT DOOR

0:06:320:06:34

-There's someone at the door.

-Shh!

0:06:360:06:38

What do we do?

0:06:380:06:39

You and...

0:06:400:06:42

ANOTHER KNOCK

0:06:450:06:46

Shh!

0:07:000:07:01

-Hi, hello.

-Sorry.

0:07:030:07:06

I hope we're not disturbing you. Just wondering, if we're going back

0:07:060:07:10

to the village, is it quicker to cut back across to the beach or will we get cut off at this time of the day?

0:07:100:07:15

-Better to ask, I thought, just in case.

-We have got proper shoes.

0:07:150:07:19

-We can get across nice and quickly.

-It's private property. I'm busy.

0:07:190:07:22

-Get off my land!

-Shut it.

0:07:310:07:33

Shh, oh, my God! I could have shot them.

0:07:330:07:35

Hey, hey,

0:07:350:07:38

we're safe, sweetheart.

0:07:380:07:40

No-one knows we're here.

0:07:400:07:42

All that stuff's long since gone.

0:07:430:07:46

-No more Torchwood, right?

-Yeah. OK.

0:07:460:07:48

It's gone. Forgotten, eh?

0:07:480:07:50

Yeah, all right. Sorry. OK.

0:07:500:07:53

Come here.

0:07:530:07:55

Popular man, Rex Matheson.

0:08:160:08:19

We've had three different station chiefs on the phone.

0:08:190:08:21

-No sign of his family?

-We only have a number for his father.

0:08:210:08:24

I left a message, but no-one's called back.

0:08:240:08:27

Is he...

0:08:270:08:29

No. No, he made it. He's alive.

0:08:290:08:31

God, I...

0:08:310:08:34

Thank you. I...

0:08:340:08:36

The paramedics, they said he didn't stand a chance.

0:08:360:08:38

Well, looks like someone changed the rules.

0:08:380:08:41

Miracles got...easy.

0:08:410:08:45

It's not only Rex who's still alive.

0:08:450:08:47

So is everyone else.

0:08:480:08:50

Sorry. I don't get you.

0:08:510:08:53

It started last night.

0:08:550:08:57

First I knew, they called up from the morgue. They were laughing.

0:09:000:09:03

They said, "What's happening up there? You on strike?"

0:09:030:09:06

Turns out no-one had died.

0:09:060:09:08

24 hours since this hospital had a death.

0:09:080:09:10

Not one, not from old age, not from injury, not from sickness. All day long.

0:09:100:09:15

Just a coincidence, I suppose.

0:09:150:09:17

That's what I said. Yeah.

0:09:170:09:19

Then I was on a call to St Jude's in Chicago.

0:09:190:09:22

And they said, "Well, here's a funny thing. Past 24 hours,

0:09:220:09:25

"we've registered no deaths, not one.

0:09:250:09:28

So I called my ex-husband. He's at Cedarbrook.

0:09:280:09:30

Same story - all day, no deaths.

0:09:300:09:33

I tried London. I have this friend at the Royal Free Hospital.

0:09:330:09:36

I called her. She said, "That's weird.

0:09:360:09:38

"It's the same thing over here."

0:09:380:09:40

24 hours, no-one's died.

0:09:400:09:43

What do you think of that?

0:09:430:09:45

Hmm?

0:09:450:09:47

One lucky day.

0:09:470:09:49

The survival of Oswald Danes turns out to be the first

0:09:490:09:52

incident in a much bigger story breaking live this morning.

0:09:520:09:55

When the Kentucky Medical Authority made a chance comment

0:09:550:09:57

that it hadn't recorded a single death over 24 hours...

0:09:570:10:00

17 more authorities immediately reported the same thing.

0:10:000:10:04

The story exploded on social network sites.

0:10:040:10:07

SPEAKS IN SPANISH

0:10:070:10:09

"Miracle" trending as the number-one topic.

0:10:090:10:11

From Maine to California the story is the same...

0:10:110:10:13

For the past 36 hours no fatalities have been reported.

0:10:130:10:16

No-one has died.

0:10:160:10:17

-Not one person in the United States.

-Not a single death.

0:10:170:10:19

-Miracle Day.

-Miracle Day.

0:10:190:10:20

-Miracle Day. That's what's being called.

-Miracle day.

0:10:200:10:24

Mr Danes, I'm Alexander Peterson representing the governor's office.

0:10:380:10:43

What, I don't get a personal visit?

0:10:430:10:45

I'm afraid not, given the circumstances.

0:10:450:10:48

But the governor's office would like to offer its condolences

0:10:480:10:50

without an admission of liability for any physical distress caused by events beyond its control.

0:10:500:10:54

Condolences?

0:10:540:10:56

-He can't just say sorry?

-You have to respect his position.

0:10:560:11:00

You're a convicted paedophile, sir, and a convicted murderer.

0:11:000:11:04

By your own admission, you took the life of a 12-year-old girl,

0:11:040:11:07

so the governor's apology is always going to be within certain limits.

0:11:070:11:11

When are you going to let me go?

0:11:120:11:14

Well, I don't think that's possible.

0:11:140:11:15

I've served my sentence.

0:11:150:11:17

Granted, the execution was...flawed, but that doesn't defer the sentence.

0:11:170:11:22

With respect, you don't reprieve a man you failed to hang because the rope snapped.

0:11:220:11:27

Indeed. And with respect, that particular aphorism applies only for an execution which has failed.

0:11:270:11:35

-And that's you.

-On the contrary, I would maintain, and my lawyers would maintain,

0:11:350:11:41

my sentence was carried out successfully. Nothing went wrong.

0:11:410:11:45

Absolutely nothing.

0:11:450:11:46

The fact that life

0:11:460:11:48

and the laws of life on this earth have changed is hardly my fault.

0:11:480:11:52

Society is full of out-there laws, Mr Danes.

0:11:520:11:54

-Nonetheless, they still apply.

-That's right, Mr Peterson.

0:11:540:11:57

And when considering the persistence of the law, then the eighth amendment

0:11:570:12:02

clearly forbids the application of cruel and unusual punishment such

0:12:020:12:07

as mine alongside the Fifth Amendment and I quote, "Nor shall any person be subject for the same offence twice."

0:12:070:12:15

The founding fathers practically had me in mind when they wrote the constitution.

0:12:160:12:22

Don't you think, though?

0:12:220:12:24

Don't you think?

0:12:250:12:26

Because I can guarantee, Mr Peterson, that when I

0:12:260:12:33

talk of lawyers, I mean the team who will be suing the governor,

0:12:330:12:38

and I mean the governor himself.

0:12:380:12:40

Not his office, but the actual man.

0:12:400:12:44

They will be suing him for wrongful imprisonment.

0:12:440:12:48

And I promise you that they will sue his ass to high heaven

0:12:480:12:52

till angels sing songs of him in their laments.

0:12:520:12:58

Is that clear?

0:12:580:13:00

-Perfectly.

-Then go tell him, because with every passing second, that's a million dollars more.

0:13:000:13:06

Mr Peterson, thank you.

0:13:080:13:11

Thank you very much.

0:13:110:13:13

Hey. Heard about Rex. Is he OK?

0:13:260:13:28

Yeah. Thought it was a miracle.

0:13:280:13:30

Turns out it's everyone.

0:13:300:13:31

Did you get any more on that Torchwood thing?

0:13:310:13:33

No, it's been shut down.

0:13:330:13:35

Orders of Brian Friedkin.

0:13:350:13:37

Goes through his office only.

0:13:370:13:38

Case closed.

0:13:380:13:40

But what was it? Cos the way those files disappeared...

0:13:400:13:43

The world changed overnight, yeah?

0:13:430:13:45

Some old British thing is not on the top of the list.

0:13:450:13:49

Torchwood. If that wasn't a virus, it's got to be some sort of malware.

0:13:530:13:57

It's like nothing I've ever seen.

0:13:570:13:59

The word "Torchwood" is vanished.

0:13:590:14:00

It's been eradicated. If you search for Torchwood, you get no results.

0:14:000:14:04

Nothing gets no results.

0:14:040:14:06

There's gotta be something on paper.

0:14:060:14:08

The shelves are bare. It's all gone to Friedkin.

0:14:080:14:11

I asked Yvonne.

0:14:110:14:13

She said it was classified under the 456 regulations.

0:14:130:14:17

She said you want to stay away.

0:14:170:14:19

-Why?

-They all died.

0:14:190:14:21

So the story goes.

0:14:210:14:22

Anyone that worked for Torchwood was killed in action.

0:14:220:14:25

And they died young.

0:14:250:14:27

Seen the TV?

0:14:300:14:32

It's not just you.

0:14:320:14:33

-ON TV:

-This goes beyond America. It's worldwide.

0:14:350:14:38

You've got the same reports from Europe, from Asia, from Africa.

0:14:380:14:42

Every death is different.

0:14:420:14:44

You can't suspend death like it's a fixed concept.

0:14:440:14:46

This goes against the fundamental rules of life on earth.

0:14:460:14:49

They shot him! They shot my brother like...

0:14:490:14:52

bam, bam, bam, but, you know, he's still alive

0:14:520:14:54

and his heart's still going. He reached out...

0:14:540:14:57

Whether it's a disease or an experiment or a project gone wrong,

0:14:570:15:02

it's obvious we're the victims now.

0:15:020:15:04

-We're the lab rats.

-These people are dead.

0:15:040:15:08

That's what they are. Dead people sitting up in bed.

0:15:080:15:10

They terrify me. I'm not touching them.

0:15:100:15:12

I'm sorry, but they should be corpses.

0:15:120:15:15

That's what they are - living corpses.

0:15:150:15:18

YELLS

0:15:220:15:24

The metal missed the spine, but the pericardium was lacerated

0:15:360:15:39

and a coronary artery was crushed and thrombosed.

0:15:390:15:42

That's the one in your leg.

0:15:420:15:44

-I had to transplant a section of vein from your thigh.

-But how did I survive?

0:15:440:15:48

I...don't know.

0:15:480:15:50

Even when your heart stopped beating, the process continued.

0:15:500:15:53

The process of life, the viability of the flesh,

0:15:530:15:56

-the transfer of oxygen. It just didn't stop.

-Do I get better?

0:15:560:16:01

Do I heal? Or do I just hurt for the rest of my life?

0:16:010:16:04

Because if this thing keeps going, the rest of my life is forever, right?

0:16:040:16:08

Rex, now listen to me.

0:16:080:16:10

Cos you might want to take something under consideration.

0:16:100:16:13

That maybe you were lucky.

0:16:130:16:16

You should've died last night,

0:16:160:16:19

but when this thing happened, the miracle, it gave me time

0:16:190:16:23

to fix you.

0:16:230:16:26

Without the miracle, you'd be dead.

0:16:260:16:29

It's like someone cast a spell over the whole world.

0:16:290:16:32

But what happens when it stops, huh?

0:16:340:16:38

What happens to me then?

0:16:380:16:40

Do I die?

0:16:410:16:43

-Oh, you are so cheating!

-Cheating?

0:16:520:16:55

How can I cheat painting a wall?

0:16:550:16:57

-Only a man can turn this into a competition.

-You just went, whoosh!

0:16:570:17:01

With one stroke, that's hardly a coat!

0:17:010:17:04

PHONE RINGS

0:17:040:17:05

-Oh, bollocks, bollocks.

-It might be nothing.

0:17:050:17:09

Stupid. There's only one reason why that phone could ring. Where have you put it?

0:17:090:17:13

It's in here.

0:17:130:17:15

What is it?

0:17:160:17:17

This is Sergeant Davison confirming reports of one suspect, male,

0:17:170:17:21

in the vicinity of St Helen's Hospital, Cardiff City.

0:17:210:17:25

Suggest rendezvous at 0200 hours in the agreed position.

0:17:250:17:29

It's my dad. He's in hospital.

0:17:350:17:37

Uh, I've gotta see him. Sorry, Rhys.

0:17:380:17:42

We've gotta go back.

0:17:420:17:44

Friedkin's office took all the Torchwood files, cleared us out.

0:17:580:18:02

I know. He sent me to double-check.

0:18:020:18:04

Cos files get left behind,

0:18:040:18:06

especially if there's a hard copy inside an associated file.

0:18:060:18:09

That sort of thing always gets missed.

0:18:090:18:12

Just need to check on all the associations.

0:18:120:18:16

OK.

0:18:160:18:17

-Not sure where to begin.

-Better find out, then.

0:18:190:18:23

Right.

0:18:230:18:24

OK.

0:18:240:18:27

Thanks.

0:18:270:18:28

456...

0:19:180:19:19

456.

0:19:190:19:20

45...

0:19:200:19:23

456!

0:19:250:19:26

Come with me.

0:20:330:20:35

Down!

0:21:050:21:06

Oh, my God.

0:21:150:21:16

-Is he going to die?

-Don't worry about it.

0:21:170:21:21

-No-one dies these days.

-You want to bet?!

0:21:210:21:23

Whoa.

0:21:390:21:40

Anyway, Captain Jack Harkness.

0:21:410:21:44

Nice to meet you.

0:21:440:21:46

Here you go.

0:22:030:22:05

-That man...

-He was after me, not you.

0:22:060:22:09

Why? Why would he want you dead?

0:22:090:22:11

On the very day that no-one's dying?

0:22:110:22:13

Wish I knew. And what got you so involved?

0:22:130:22:17

I'm not even authorised for this,

0:22:170:22:21

but this friend of mine...

0:22:210:22:23

I was telling him about Torchwood and...

0:22:230:22:27

He crashed his car while I was talking to him.

0:22:280:22:32

And I can't help but thinking...

0:22:320:22:34

-..that it's all my fault.

-I know the feeling.

0:22:360:22:39

So what is Torchwood?

0:22:410:22:44

Torchwood no longer exists.

0:22:440:22:46

Then what was it?

0:22:460:22:48

Cos there were photos in that file of a man who looked just like you, but

0:22:480:22:52

it said 1939, then 1925. Is he your father?

0:22:520:22:57

I suppose it must be.

0:22:570:23:00

Are you all right?

0:23:050:23:07

Yeah.

0:23:070:23:08

I hurt my arm.

0:23:110:23:14

Considering what we just went through, I would say that was a miracle.

0:23:140:23:19

Yeah, another one.

0:23:190:23:21

The Torchwood Institute was set up by the British Royal Family in 1879

0:23:230:23:27

to defend the realm of Great Britain by investigating the unusual,

0:23:270:23:31

the strange and the alien.

0:23:310:23:34

I'm kind of guessing "alien" doesn't mean foreign.

0:23:350:23:38

Alien as in extraterrestrial.

0:23:380:23:40

-Oh, my God.

-This whole situation, worldwide -

0:23:420:23:45

that's exactly the kind of thing we used to investigate.

0:23:450:23:48

Torchwood - they said that people died,

0:23:480:23:53

but there was that other photo -

0:23:530:23:55

Gwen Cooper. There was no date of death.

0:23:550:23:58

She's still alive.

0:23:580:24:00

The last one left.

0:24:000:24:02

And I'm going to keep her safe,

0:24:030:24:06

which means making sure that the institute stays dead and buried.

0:24:060:24:09

So that first email last night, the one that just said "Torchwood"...

0:24:090:24:13

Wasn't me. God knows who it was.

0:24:130:24:17

But that was enough to call me back, and I got to work releasing the malware,

0:24:170:24:21

destroying hard copies, removing all traces of the word, using Retcon.

0:24:210:24:26

What's Retcon?

0:24:270:24:29

What's Retcon?

0:24:290:24:31

It's a smart drug.

0:24:310:24:34

Selective amnesia.

0:24:340:24:36

No.

0:24:390:24:41

You won't remember a thing.

0:24:410:24:43

Nice to meet you, Esther.

0:24:500:24:52

'The fire at the CIA archive is now under control...'

0:24:520:24:55

An explosion right at our doorstep.

0:24:550:24:57

It's a gift. Now take a look at the victims.

0:24:570:25:00

-Are they dead or not?

-You're not the first to think of it, Mr Matheson.

0:25:000:25:03

Now, you can stop running the case from a hospital bed.

0:25:030:25:05

Wait, what are you talking about? Who else is there?

0:25:050:25:07

I really can't talk.

0:25:070:25:09

Who else is onto this?

0:25:090:25:11

Check the ringmain.

0:25:110:25:13

The what? Hello?

0:25:130:25:14

FBI.

0:25:150:25:17

Hey, my man, what the hell is the ringmain?

0:25:210:25:26

It's the internal cameras. It's the security system, that's all.

0:25:260:25:29

DIALS

0:25:320:25:34

Yeah. Yeah, this is Rex Matheson with the CIA.

0:25:360:25:40

Put me on with your chief of security. Yeah, right now.

0:25:400:25:43

Session begins supervised by attending surgeon Professor Victor Louis Santini

0:25:450:25:50

and witnesses to be listed in the hospital register.

0:25:500:25:53

The purpose of this enquiry is to determine...

0:25:530:25:55

Well, as you'll see, following the explosion at the CIA archive...

0:25:550:25:59

Got it.

0:25:590:26:01

One of the victims has been...

0:26:070:26:11

FAINT WHEEZING

0:26:110:26:14

Yes, I think we can...

0:26:140:26:16

I'm sorry.

0:26:160:26:18

They brought me in as an expert, but I don't know what the hell this is.

0:26:180:26:22

We think this man was right at the centre of the blast...

0:26:250:26:28

and yet he's still alive.

0:26:280:26:30

Clearly, the skin is burnt.

0:26:390:26:42

He's not indestructible, just undying.

0:26:420:26:46

Ever-living. We're going to need a new vocabulary.

0:26:460:26:49

But we're getting the same results from all over the world.

0:26:490:26:54

Is that actual consciousness? It seems like he's still aware.

0:26:540:26:59

Excuse me. I was wondering...

0:26:590:27:01

Owen Harper, FBI.

0:27:010:27:03

But what if you detach the head?

0:27:060:27:08

I mean, would he stay alive...

0:27:100:27:13

-without his head?

-I suggest we find out.

0:27:130:27:17

Excuse me, you can't do that.

0:27:170:27:19

I mean, you literally can't. This man is not dead. He's our patient.

0:27:190:27:23

Your comments have been noted, Dr Juarez.

0:27:230:27:25

Now shall we begin?

0:27:250:27:27

Oh, my God.

0:28:060:28:08

Don't tell me this is a virus or evolution or whatever.

0:28:100:28:13

This is deliberate intervention.

0:28:130:28:16

-I mean, all of us have been changed by design.

-But how? Who could do this?

0:28:160:28:19

Who's got the technology? Simple answer - no-one on this earth.

0:28:190:28:24

What the hell?

0:29:060:29:07

Long time no see.

0:29:110:29:13

Oh, my God.

0:29:130:29:15

Hey.

0:29:150:29:18

And you, big lunk... Daddy Daycare. Look at her.

0:29:180:29:22

So your father had a mild heart attack on Saturday night

0:29:220:29:26

and then a second on Sunday and that was quite bad, to be honest.

0:29:260:29:30

But he's stable now. He's out of ICU.

0:29:300:29:33

If you're going to get sick, he didn't half choose the right day.

0:29:330:29:36

-What do you mean?

-Look at them.

0:29:360:29:38

They're all gathering around the hospitals like they're the new churches.

0:29:380:29:42

-I'm not kidding. We've had doctors being worshipped since Miracle Day.

-What's Miracle Day?

0:29:420:29:46

-Are you kidding me? Haven't you heard?

-Heard what?

0:29:460:29:48

Come on. It started two nights ago.

0:29:480:29:51

People stopped dying. They still get hurt, sick - they just won't die.

0:29:510:29:57

-Oh, you silly girl. I said stay away.

-How could I do that, Mum?

0:30:040:30:07

What if someone sees you? It's not safe. You told me.

0:30:070:30:11

What if someone's watching?

0:30:110:30:13

Oh, look at her. Come here.

0:30:130:30:16

Oh. Good God, she's enormous.

0:30:160:30:20

-That's your grandma, remember?

-Could she... never sees me, does she?

0:30:200:30:25

Not since the day she was born.

0:30:250:30:28

Oh, hey, come see your granddad.

0:30:280:30:32

Hi, Dad.

0:30:320:30:34

Hey.

0:30:350:30:36

It's me.

0:30:380:30:40

Hello.

0:30:400:30:42

You shouldn't have.

0:30:420:30:44

Well, there we are then... tough.

0:30:440:30:46

And you can stop all this nonsense, OK?

0:30:460:30:49

I want you up and out of this bed, lazy old thing.

0:30:490:30:51

Ah, there she is.

0:30:550:30:57

-Princess.

-Look at her, though. She's huge.

-She's perfectly normal, Mum.

0:30:570:31:01

Thought you were being frugal. What are you feeding her? Lard?

0:31:010:31:04

Yes, I'm feeding her lard. Keep telling her that,

0:31:040:31:06

and by the time she's 13, she'll have a psychological complex.

0:31:060:31:10

-Stop it now, you two.

-Oh, sorry.

0:31:100:31:13

What do you think it is, Gwen?

0:31:190:31:21

What happened to us?

0:31:210:31:24

This never-ending life.

0:31:240:31:26

What is it?

0:31:260:31:28

Should I be dead, sweetheart?

0:31:280:31:30

I don't know, Dad.

0:31:300:31:32

It's the sort of thing... your lot used to tackle.

0:31:320:31:37

Yeah, but Torchwood's gone, Dad. There's no-one else left on earth,

0:31:370:31:42

Just me.

0:31:420:31:44

OK? And I'm sorry...

0:31:440:31:46

because I don't know what to do. I don't know what to do, Dad.

0:31:460:31:50

It's all over the world. Look... look at this.

0:32:320:32:36

Somalia has stopped fighting.

0:32:360:32:38

Warfare is even worse when the bodies refuse to die. But take a look at North Korea...

0:32:380:32:43

huh, spoiling for a fight.

0:32:430:32:45

They've got a lot of soldiers who think they're immortal.

0:32:450:32:49

But this miracle, it's specifically human.

0:32:490:32:52

It's got to be. This website says if insects stopped dying, we'd be overrun within 48 hours flat.

0:32:520:32:56

And that hasn't happened. So this thing is being targeted at us.

0:32:560:33:01

Have a look-see. Budge over.

0:33:010:33:03

-I've missed all this.

-I haven't.

0:33:030:33:06

-It's quiet without you.

-Tch.

0:33:090:33:12

Here we go. Look. Planet Earth... on average, 300,000 people die every day.

0:33:120:33:17

So if they stop dying, that's an extra million people in just over three days.

0:33:170:33:22

Add to that 500,000 people born every day...

0:33:220:33:26

Another million every two days plus the first million.

0:33:260:33:29

-Bloody hell.

-The fastest population boom in history.

0:33:290:33:31

-We'll run out of room.

-We'll run out of food first.

0:33:310:33:34

A guy on the telly was saying we've got four months like this...

0:33:340:33:37

just four months - and then that's it.

0:33:370:33:39

Society just collapses - everyone fighting each other for food like animals.

0:33:390:33:43

Oi. What are you two doing?

0:33:430:33:46

Uh, I was just asking for some advice.

0:33:460:33:49

-Yeah, don't you start. Gwen?

-Yes?

-No more investigations. You promised.

0:33:490:33:53

We're here to see your dad. That's it. Huh?

0:33:530:33:54

Do you want to come and have a look?

0:33:540:33:56

Come on, bright eyes, follow me.

0:33:560:33:59

Look, intensive care overflow. They've got 12 beds with 17 patients already.

0:34:020:34:07

-What's going to happen tomorrow? And the day after that? And the day after that? And the day...

-Listen.

0:34:070:34:12

-Every time you investigate something, you end up in danger.

-Cos I can help.

0:34:120:34:15

-Don't you dare.

-So you...

-I said don't you dare! Have you got that?!

0:34:150:34:18

Don't you bloody dare, Gwen!

0:34:180:34:21

See, the thing is, right, if you think Miracle Day

0:34:230:34:27

is like a Torchwood case, others are going to think the same, aren't they?

0:34:270:34:31

They're going to come looking for you with guns like they did the old days.

0:34:310:34:35

-I suppose, yeah.

-Yeah, we shouldn't even be in the city!

0:34:350:34:37

There are cameras everywhere, man!

0:34:370:34:38

And it's different now. You've got a daughter.

0:34:380:34:42

And you can't go putting her into danger!

0:34:440:34:47

That is why we live in the back of beyond - to keep her safe.

0:34:470:34:51

We've got to go back!

0:34:510:34:52

-My dad is sick.

-Oh, think about it!

0:34:540:34:57

-People aren't dying. He's going to survive.

-Shh, now. Shh.

0:34:570:35:01

Think about Anwen.

0:35:050:35:06

-Maybe our daughter's going to live forever.

-Don't, OK? Don't make her part of this...

0:35:120:35:16

this thing, OK? Don't! Do you think she could?

0:35:160:35:19

Possible, yeah.

0:35:190:35:21

See, maybe you should let this happen...

0:35:210:35:27

for once.

0:35:280:35:29

Let's go home.

0:35:350:35:36

-Yes.

-Let's go home.

0:35:360:35:39

What the hell?

0:36:300:36:31

The search for suspects continues after last night's massive explosion at the CIA Archives...

0:36:450:36:50

Nice for some, having the morning off?

0:36:500:36:52

Yeah, I, um-had things to do. Missed all this.

0:36:520:36:57

You owe me. Yasmin works in Friedkin's office.

0:37:050:37:08

She got me the last remaining copy of the Torchwood file. Now you can take me to dinner.

0:37:080:37:13

PHONE RINGS

0:37:310:37:33

Esther Drummond. Hello.

0:37:330:37:35

Is there a database correlating mortality rates from every hospital in the world?

0:37:350:37:38

Are you on your cell phone? Cos you're not allowed to be using it.

0:37:380:37:41

Is anyone talking to morticians? Because they've got to be the first to notice, right?

0:37:410:37:45

There's nothing. There's no news. The whole thing, it's kind of intangible.

0:37:450:37:49

How do you investigate something not happening?

0:37:490:37:52

And all that Torchwood stuff has gone up to Friedkin.

0:37:520:37:56

Oh, yeah?

0:37:560:37:58

-So what's Torchwood got to do with it?

-I don't know.

0:37:580:38:01

It's sort of connected, isn't it?

0:38:010:38:03

Well, no, it's not. It's a completely different case.

0:38:030:38:05

Sure. Of course it is.

0:38:050:38:08

Then why did you mention it?

0:38:080:38:10

Don't know. I suppose it just happened at the same time?

0:38:100:38:12

So what is Torchwood, anyway?

0:38:140:38:16

Um, some kind of British intervention agency...

0:38:160:38:21

closed down - used to specialize in 456 cases and above.

0:38:210:38:24

So that first email with Torchwood,

0:38:240:38:26

you know, the security breach, when did that come through?

0:38:260:38:29

Sunday night... 22:36.

0:38:290:38:32

-22:36, huh?

-Yep.

0:38:320:38:35

22:36.

0:38:350:38:37

22:36 was the last reported death...

0:38:410:38:44

the last death on planet Earth.

0:38:440:38:46

-Well, that's disputable. They said that the last death was on Monday.

-No, no, no.

0:38:460:38:50

Monday in Shanghai. Ugh.

0:38:500:38:52

At 11:36. Washington, DC.

0:38:520:38:55

It's 13 hours behind at 22:36.

0:38:550:38:57

Both those things happened at the same time.

0:38:570:39:00

You were right. MACHINES BEEP

0:39:000:39:01

It's all connected. Torchwood's the key to this whole thing.

0:39:010:39:04

Rex, I've warned you. You're going to kill yourself!

0:39:040:39:07

I can't. That's the point. All right, so give me those names again.

0:39:070:39:12

Um, um,

0:39:130:39:15

Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.

0:39:150:39:19

Zero information on him and no sightings of Cooper for the last 12 months.

0:39:190:39:23

-It's like she's gone underground.

-Yeah, that's them.

0:39:230:39:25

The case details have been censored by UNIT headquarters.

0:39:250:39:27

This file's got referrals going to Geneva and above.

0:39:270:39:30

-It's way beyond top secret.

-Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:39:300:39:32

-CIA, move out of my way.

-You can't take them.

0:39:320:39:34

-Rex, what do you think you're doing?

-Sorry, doc, I'm too busy.

0:39:340:39:36

-You are in no condition to leave.

-Oh, I'm not just leaving.

0:39:360:39:40

-I'm flying...

-Oh, my God.

0:39:400:39:42

All the way to the United Kingdom.

0:39:440:39:46

Esther, book me a flight.

0:39:460:39:48

Hey, CIA! I'm taking that cab.

0:39:490:39:52

Move the hell out of the way. Move!

0:39:520:39:54

Now make sure you get ahold of supplies cos I'm going to need a requisition 15.

0:39:540:39:58

-What do you need that for?

-You do know what a requisition 15 is, right?

0:39:590:40:03

Of course, I do. It's clearance to take a handgun on a plane.

0:40:030:40:06

Well, then I'm taking a handgun on a plane.

0:40:060:40:08

Now book that flight.

0:40:080:40:10

OK, your flight departs at 0200 hours, but your requisition has been refused.

0:40:100:40:15

-Listen to me.

-Tengo tu pasaporte.

0:40:150:40:17

If requisitions won't move, then get me a handgun from UK Security.

0:40:170:40:21

How am I supposed to do that?

0:40:210:40:22

SHE SPEAKS SPANISH Shh! Get me the gun!

0:40:220:40:27

Rosita, Rosita, here. I don't know when I'm coming back, all right?

0:40:270:40:32

I don't want you letting your husband into my house. You got that?

0:40:320:40:34

No husband-o. No husband-o.

0:40:340:40:37

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen and welcome to your flight to London Heathrow.

0:40:380:40:43

All right, now concentrate. The life of Gwen Cooper - what do we know?

0:40:430:40:48

Ex-police. It says that she joined the Torchwood Institute in October, 2006.

0:40:480:40:54

All right, now hold on, hold on.

0:40:540:40:55

Go through her police records, find out everyone she worked with, everyone she trained with.

0:40:550:41:00

I'm sorry, sir. I have to ask you to turn your phone off now.

0:41:000:41:02

CIA...

0:41:020:41:04

and I'm sick!

0:41:040:41:06

Gwen Cooper. Find out everything.

0:41:060:41:08

I can't get into the database. I'll need your password.

0:41:080:41:10

Rex!

0:41:130:41:15

All right.

0:41:210:41:24

So where the hell was I? Right.

0:41:240:41:26

The password's "Madrid 6 6 2 1 1."

0:41:260:41:29

That's "Madrid" with a capital "M."

0:41:290:41:31

Go through that list and scan through their records using a level-1 filter.

0:41:310:41:35

You should highlight anything with a red flag or a caution pertaining to homeland security.

0:41:350:41:40

I've got one positive response...

0:41:430:41:45

police Sergeant Andrew Davison, Cardiff resident.

0:41:450:41:48

There's a note in his file...

0:41:480:41:50

says he was Gwen Cooper's unofficial liaison. I can access his private calls.

0:41:500:41:54

-I've got to filter this through Whitehall.

-How long's it going to take?

-Any minute now.

0:41:570:42:02

And what the hell is this bridge?

0:42:020:42:03

-The Severn Bridge?

-It connects England to Wales.

0:42:030:42:06

What, you mean Wales is separate?

0:42:060:42:08

-It's like the British equivalent of New Jersey.

-Hold on, hold on. I think I've got something.

0:42:090:42:13

Sergeant Davison made one call on Tuesday at 17:08 to a number that's on the UK Hickman register.

0:42:130:42:19

That's a list of cell numbers allocated to witness protection schemes.

0:42:190:42:23

That's it, then... we've got her.

0:42:230:42:24

I can request that through MI5.

0:42:240:42:27

Now what is this?

0:42:270:42:29

Wait a minute, I've got to pay for this bridge?

0:42:290:42:32

-Goddamn Wales.

-I've traced the handset. Sending you the coordinates...

0:42:320:42:36

now. It's at 51 degrees 34 north, 4 degrees 17 west.

0:42:380:42:43

I got it.

0:42:430:42:45

-CIA!

-Yeah? So what?

0:42:590:43:03

HE COUGHS

0:43:030:43:06

Extraordinary scenes in Kentucky as the governor's office releases Oswald Danes on parole.

0:43:090:43:15

The charity Freedom And Liberty has employed a force majeure ruling

0:43:150:43:19

to define Danes' survival as an act of God

0:43:190:43:22

with liability now on the state to prove otherwise.

0:43:220:43:26

SHOUTS OF ANGER

0:43:260:43:28

ELECTRONIC GATE OPENS

0:43:330:43:35

We're going. We'll get a good head start and then phone you an ambulance.

0:43:490:43:52

Don't follow us. Don't even try.

0:43:520:43:55

We just want to be left alone, OK?

0:43:550:43:57

Hold it right there, mate.

0:44:090:44:11

-So much for tying him up.

-I've never tied up a person.

0:44:110:44:14

-Men are good at knots. How many times have you told me?

-At Christmas.

0:44:140:44:17

Hey! Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.

0:44:170:44:19

I had a pole through my chest.

0:44:190:44:21

I was dead, then I wasn't.

0:44:210:44:23

I had to pay for this bridge and now I want to know what the hell is going on, all right?

0:44:230:44:29

Because I was dead and now I'm not. HELICOPTER APPROACHES

0:44:290:44:32

And if that has anything to do with Torchwood or - or you or anyone, then I need...

0:44:320:44:38

HELICOPTER NOISE INCREASES You know, it would really help if could hear myself think.

0:44:380:44:43

What the hell is he doing?

0:44:480:44:49

It's a tourist thing.

0:44:490:44:51

No.

0:44:510:44:54

No, I don't think it is.

0:44:540:44:56

Sweetheart.

0:44:580:44:59

Get back!

0:45:020:45:04

Get in the car! Come on!

0:45:270:45:29

Come on!

0:45:320:45:34

Can't leave you alone for a minute.

0:45:480:45:50

It's you.

0:45:520:45:53

Gwen Cooper - find out everything.

0:45:530:45:56

She said to turn off the phone.

0:45:590:46:00

Never annoy me again.

0:46:000:46:02

-HELICOPTER WHIRRS

-Now get in.

0:46:020:46:04

Jack, for God's sake, there's a kid here!

0:46:230:46:25

-I got a present for you in the back.

-Give her to me, Gwen!

0:46:250:46:28

You there, CIA , do something useful!

0:46:280:46:30

Wales is insane!

0:46:300:46:33

Get down!

0:46:330:46:34

-Who the hell are you people?

-Torchwood.

0:46:590:47:01

Right. So that's sorted. Rhys, you take Anwen to my mother's and keep her safe and sound.

0:47:340:47:37

Jack, if you've got access to any weapons, what else have we got?

0:47:370:47:41

I still got the old I5s, but everything else is gone.

0:47:410:47:43

I knew it though. Didn't I say?

0:47:430:47:46

-First sign of trouble, you go running off with Captain Jack Bollocks.

-What choice have I got?

0:47:460:47:49

They've rebuilt the tower, now we're rebuilding Torchwood. Isn't that right, Jack?

0:47:490:47:53

-You even listening to me?

-I cut my arm.

0:47:540:47:57

OK. Can't help but thinking there's more important things to be worrying about here.

0:47:570:48:01

No. I cut my arm. Look at it.

0:48:010:48:04

-It's not healing.

-Do you mean...

-I'm staying hurt.

0:48:040:48:07

-Oh, my God.

-I know.

-Seriously, though.

0:48:070:48:10

-It's only a cut.

-But it's Jack.

0:48:100:48:12

Don't you see? The whole world becomes immortal...

0:48:120:48:15

And I mortal.

0:48:150:48:16

I don't mend. I'm normal again.

0:48:160:48:20

I'm plain old human.

0:48:200:48:22

-You're what?

-Doesn't concern you!

0:48:220:48:25

You talk some crazy shit, you know that?

0:48:250:48:28

You should get that seen too.

0:48:280:48:30

Yeah, any minute now.

0:48:300:48:31

SIRENS APPROACH

0:48:310:48:33

Oh, here comes my ride.

0:48:330:48:34

Andy, you can't do this.

0:48:480:48:49

Orders from above. I'm sorry.

0:48:490:48:51

He's in charge.

0:48:510:48:53

-Since when?

-He can't arrest us. He's an American.

0:48:530:48:56

I hate to bust up your sweet little tea party, but this isn't an arrest.

0:48:560:49:01

This is a rendition.

0:49:010:49:03

And on behalf of the CIA

0:49:030:49:05

under the 456 Amendments to US Code 3184,

0:49:050:49:11

I'm extraditing this so-called Torchwood Team

0:49:110:49:15

to the United States of America.

0:49:150:49:17

Now get me out of here!

0:49:180:49:21

Take me home.

0:49:220:49:23

-Everyone, we're doing it wrong!

-We don't have time.

0:49:430:49:45

We have nothing BUT time. Nobody's going to die.

0:49:450:49:47

Something happened to all of us, not just me. Miracle Day arrived, and...

0:49:470:49:52

..we all came out of it changed.

0:49:530:49:55

Her husband strangled her. She doesn't die, so he keeps strangling her. That's not murder?

0:49:550:50:00

We're not allowed to say "attempted murder" any more, because murder's impossible.

0:50:000:50:05

Hospital beds are filling up because the people who should die, don't.

0:50:050:50:08

Give it six months and drug-resistant organisms will be everywhere.

0:50:080:50:11

People aren't just living. It's like they're too alive.

0:50:110:50:14

Whichever way you look at it, this situation can only get worse.

0:50:140:50:18

I'm arresting Torchwood now.

0:50:180:50:20

Whoa. Hey, what are you doing?

0:50:200:50:22

Every time you turn up, it always goes wrong.

0:50:250:50:28

Oh, my god, Rex is coming back and he's bringing Torchwood with him.

0:50:280:50:31

Hey, wait! You get us arrested, OK?

0:50:310:50:33

You break up my family, you nearly get Jack killed.

0:50:330:50:35

-Why should we go anywhere with you?

-Because I have a car.

0:50:350:50:38

Go, go, go, go, go!

0:50:450:50:47

Who told you to set me up? Because everywhere I turn, the whole CIA

0:50:470:50:51

has been poisoned against me.

0:50:510:50:52

I don't know who they are! They've been there for decades.

0:50:520:50:57

They were ready for the miracle. PhiCorp knew it was coming.

0:50:570:51:00

Looks like PhiCorp's calling them overflow camps

0:51:000:51:03

for all the patients in ICU.

0:51:030:51:06

-You have got to sort out my dad.

-'But he's safe enough, Gwen.'

0:51:060:51:09

This is bloody PhiCorp, Rhys, and they are up to something.

0:51:090:51:12

The new cult out on the street - that march?

0:51:140:51:16

They call themselves... the Soulless.

0:51:160:51:20

It's like there's some sort of energy behind this.

0:51:200:51:22

A will, a drive, a consciousness.

0:51:220:51:25

Cos this miracle, it's more than people just surviving -

0:51:250:51:28

they are so alive.

0:51:280:51:30

These are the times that make men, Oswald. So it's your choice.

0:51:300:51:33

Stay where you are, or stand up tall and stride across the skin of the world.

0:51:330:51:38

Did you see Oswald Danes? Did you touch him?

0:51:400:51:43

-You're obsessed with this bastard.

-He's blazing away.

0:51:430:51:47

Patterns are starting to revolve around him

0:51:470:51:49

and all we have to do is keep watching.

0:51:490:51:53

The truth is, I know what I am and I know what you are too.

0:51:530:51:58

Because I know for certain what has happened to the human race.

0:51:590:52:05

Whatever's happening to this planet, it is massive.

0:52:060:52:09

-PEOPLE SHOUT:

-Oswald!

0:52:150:52:17

I'm joining the cause.

0:52:250:52:26

Whatever you're doing to fight this miracle, count me in.

0:52:260:52:29

Gwen!

0:52:450:52:46

If you're the best England's got to offer, then God help you.

0:52:490:52:52

I'm Welsh.
