Premiering on BBC Entertainment is Series 3 of Torchwood: Children Of Earth which runs for five episodes from October 11 at 21h35, continuing every Monday after Doctor Who. In this third series of Torchwood, the team face their greatest threat yet, putting their survival, and that of the human race, in grave danger.

1965: Twelve children are gathered together on a deserted moorland, before being surrounded by a harsh, bright light – and then they are gone… Today: All over planet Earth, children stop moving. Then, as one, they begin to speak with the same voice, announcing to the governments of the world the imminent arrival of a new alien threat. “We Are Coming, We Are Coming…”

As the British Government closes ranks, it issues a death warrant against Captain Jack and Torchwood. Now forced to flee for their lives, it becomes clear to the Torchwood team that this isn’t the aliens’ first visit to Earth, and a terrible price is going to be paid for sins of the past…

Torchwood: Children of Earth rejoins Captain Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen (Eve Myles) and Ianto (Gareth David-Lloyd) as they are still coming to terms with the death of two of their closest friends. But despite their pain, they have a job to do. This time they are faced with their fiercest threat to date – one which throws the future of Torchwood and the entire human race spiralling into danger. They battle against the odds, but do they really stand a chance of saving humankind? Also in the cast are Peter Capaldi, Paul Copley and Liz May Brice.
