Television

Torchwood’s third season, titled “Children of Earth,” is still a few months away but you can catch a pulse-pounding preview of the Doctor Who spinoff in this trailer, which debuted at this weekend’s New York Comic Con.

The story, a five-episode miniseries that will air on consecutive evenings in the U.K. and come to BBC America shortly thereafter, centers on a government deal with an alien race in the 1960s that finally comes due and has dire consequences for the — wait for it … “Children of Earth!”
