Torchwood Episode 41:
The Blood Line


On opposite sides of the world, the Torchwood team finally comes face to face with the Blessing. It is a seam of apparent nothingness which runs through the heart of the planet and could be as old, connected in some way to mankind's morphogenic field. This is the mechanism by which the Three Families changed humanity, using Jack's blood to make the population of the Earth immortal. But in order to reverse the Miracle, all of the Torchwood members will have to stare death in the face... and not all of them will survive the ordeal.
