It's a Date! (US)

Well, by internet standards, this is old news, but it is still worth saying. Thanks to our readers who also posted this information.

BBC America has announced their air date for Children of Earth!

"The highly anticipated return of Torchwood: Children of Earth will kick off the first of BBC AMERICA's HD offerings. Told over five consecutive nights starting July 20 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, the series re-joins Captain Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd) as they are still coming to terms with the death of two of their closest friends. Yet despite their pain, they know 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. Battling against the odds. do they stand a chance of saving mankind?"

Then on July 28th, Children of Earth (on DVD and Blu-Ray) as well as Torchwood series two on Blu-Ray will be released in the US.

Some fans may be thrilled or disappointed to hear that these dates overlap into San Diego Comic Con (July 23-26), a convention which has hosted BBC America and Torchwood-themed panels for the past two years. Any American Torchwood fans that are attending will have to figure out how to squeeze watching the episodes into their plans (like me). As of now, no information has been released regarding a Torchwood presence at this coming Comic Con. What is known is that BBC has an official booth in the convention's dealers' hall. Hopefully they'll have something special planned for the fans.

Finally, I'm curious to hear from you! Children of Earth is right around the corner and- with a lot of the audience- the remaining Torchwood team members will be mourning the loss of Toshiko and Owen. What were your favorite Tosh and/or Owen moments? What will you miss about them in series three?
