  • MARCH OF THE SOULLESS: The Soulless stroll through downtown Atlanta during lunch Thursday in Peachtree Center.

Around lunch time in downtown Atlanta yesterday, you may have caught a group of people wearing sad face mask and toting apocalyptic signs that read, “Death Ends” at some point or the other. It was part of Starz big push to promote their latest sci-fi series Torchwood: Miracle Day that premieres tonight at 10pm.

Miracle Day, as fans now call it takes place just a couple of years after the Children of Men debacle that spelled the untimely end of the Torchwood team and separated its two surviving members Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) to parts unknown. Until now that is.

In the show’s pilot: A New World, people are starting to come to a shocking reality — no one is dying. No matter the circumstance or severity of injury, no lives are lost. The word spreads and the media dubs the incident Miracle Day. In Kentucky, Oswald Danes (Bill Pullman), a hated pedophile and child killer is about to undergo execution by lethal injection. When the deadly dose of poison doesn’t do the job, people are stunned. The CIA investigates and a nervous analyst, Esther Drummond (Alexa Havins) uncovers a single word in her fact finding — Torchwood. Esther’s senior field agent it Rex Matheson (Mekhi Phifer), a rough-and-tumbled jock vying for a promotion who could care less about the incidents occurring, until what should have been a fatal accident pulls him into an unwilling pawn in the events unfolding around him.
