As the alien presence continues to make its chilling demands, the team discover the true extent of Jack’s involvement of the events in 1965, in Torchwood: Children of Earth.

In the last episode, the arrival of the aliens, known simply as the 456, resulted in a sinister request – they want ten per cent of the planet’s children. Tonight, Jack (Jack Harkness) reveals to a shocked Gwen (Eve Myles) exactly what happened to the children who went missing in 1965, and how he lent a hand in their disappearance.

As events spiral out of control, there’s tragedy in store for Torchwood, as the team come out fighting, and the 456 step up their campaign of terror.

The Torchwood team are back on our screens, tonight on TV2, as an ominous force takes control of the planet’s children.

As we rejoin Captain Jack (John Barrowman), Gwen (Eve Myles) and Ianto (Gareth David-Lloyd), the trio are still coming to terms with the tragic loss of their colleagues, Owen and Tosh – but life continues apace for the secretive extra-terrestrial investigators, as they come face to face with their deadliest threat yet. All around the world, the children of Earth stop in their tracks, and begin channelling a chilling message from an alien presence, which warns of their imminent arrival.

It soon becomes clear the government knows more than it should about the visitors, who go by the sinister moniker ‘The 456’, and a death warrant is issued against the Torchwood team, sending them on the run for their lives.
