Digital Spy have 10 teasers/spoilers for Torchwood Children Of Earth online, but some are just hints.
The third series of Torchwood finally airs on BBC One next week as an explosive, five-consecutive-days event broadcast. To celebrate, we're going Torchwood-crazy this week on Tube Talk - as well as hints on what to expect from Children Of Earth, we'll also be bringing you exclusive interviews with the returning cast. (If you're not a fan of Torchwood, you may want to deflect your allegiance from Tube Talk to our downmarket sister blog Soap Scoop for this week only).
To kick off Torchwood Week, we present ten tantalising teasers (don't you just love alliteration?) about the first episode, which airs next Monday at 9pm.
1. Children Of Earth has a slightly terrifying premise: all of the children in the world stop dead at exactly the same moment and begin uttering the message "We are coming." All of them. And all in English, too.
2. The "we" is revealed to be an alien race dubbed The 456, not heard from in over 40 years.
3. In addition to the children, there is one other person reciting the message - a psychiatric patient named Timothy White. What connection does this have to an incident in Scotland in 1965?
4. Captain Jack and Ianto are referred to as "a couple" on more than one occasion.
5. As the episode begins, Rhys is looking at new houses for him and Gwen. But by the end of the episode, she has a very large secret she needs to share with him.
6. Both Owen and Tosh make appearances.
7. We meet Ianto's sister, nephew and niece. How will he respond to confirmed sightings of him on a dinner date with a man?
8. We also meet Captain Jack's.... daughter. Yes, daughter.
9. By the end of the episode, both Jack and Gwen have something inside them. Both items will change their worlds forever.
10. The ending to the first episode is probably one of the most compelling cliffhangers the Whoniverse has ever seen.
Expanding some further, warning spoilers...
05) Could this be Gwens pregnancy?
09) Gwen has a baby inside her, but what about Jack? Something from the 456? Or perhaps its Ianto (sorry :) )
10) Torchwood Cardiff explodes.
