Cover blurb:
An ordinary day becomes a world of terror, as every single child in the world stops. A message is sent to all the governments of Earth: 'We are coming'. But as a trap closes around Captain Jack, sins of the past are returning, as long-forgotten events from 1965 threaten to reveal an awful truth.

Torchwood are forced underground, as the government takes swift and brutal action. With members of the team being hunted down, Britain risks becoming a rogue state, with the mysterious and powerful 456 drawing ever closer. Captain Jack, Gwen and Ianto are helpless, as events escalate until mankind faces the end of civilisation itself.

THE TIMES

An einem Morgen wie jedem anderen geschieht das Unfassbare: Plötzlich, zum Entsetzen der gesamten Weltgemeinschaft, hören sämtliche Kinder auf zu lachen und zu spielen. Sie bleiben unvermittelt stehen und sprechen in der gleichen Sprache denselben unheilvollen Satz: "Wir werden kommen!" Eine außerirdische Macht bedroht die Erde und hat sich aller Kinder bemächtigt. Sofort stellen sich die Helden von TORCHWOOD der Situation und beginnen zu ermitteln. Doch anstelle feindlicher Aliens ist es die britische Regierung, die zu ihrem erbittertsten Widersacher wird. Sie scheint als Einzige zu wissen, was vor sich geht, und versucht, ein schreckliches Geheimnis zu vertuschen. Denn bald wird klar, dass dies nicht das erste Mal ist, dass die Aliens die Erde heimsuchen...

Cover blurb:
« Cette saison 3 est une pure merveille » SERIES TV

L'INVASION EXTRA-TERRESTRE COMMENCE...

Un jour ordinaire se transforme en cauchemar quand tous les enfants du monde se figuent comme des statues. Soudain, ils se mettent à hurler, puis scandent d'une mê voix : « nous arrivons ! ». C'est la panique. Les politiciens et les militaires sont impuissants face à ce phénoméne qu'ils ne comprennent pas. Le capitaine Jack Harkness et son équipe secrète TORCHWOOD sont les seuls à pouvoir sauver la race humaine...

Composée de cinq épisodes formant une même histoire, cette nouvelle saison a créé l'événement en Angleterre (en prime-time cinq soirs consécutifs sur BBC One) et aux Etats-Unis (record d'audience sur BBC America). Attention, la menace approche...
