Mekhi Phifer Previews 'Torchwood: Miracle Day' (VIDEO)

Mekhi Phifer talks 'Torchwood' on 'The Talk''Torchwood' fans, rejoice. We're less than two weeks away from the stateside debut of 'Torchwood: Miracle Day,' which premieres on Starz July 8. John Barrowman and Eve Myles are slated to return as Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper, joined by 'Torchwood' newcomers Bill Pullman, Lauren Ambrose, and Mekhi Phifer. Tuesday on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), Phifer shared a clip from the 'Doctor Who' spin-off and also divulged a few details of the plot.

In the clip, Phifer's character is shown getting impaled through the chest with a rod that flies off the back of a truck ahead of him. But, as he explained, he doesn't die. "Basically there's this phenomenon that happens throughout the world where no one is dying," he said. "I play a C.I.A. agent named Rex Matheson, and so I make it my mission to try to get to the bottom of what this phenomenon is and who's behind it. Is it aliens? Is it a conspiracy group?"

For those unfamiliar with the show's transition to America and Starz, Russell T. Davies, who revived 'Doctor Who' for the BBC, created 'Torchwood,' which ended its English run with a mini-series called 'Children of Earth' that stood in for the third season. The new season will be ten episodes, during which Agent Matheson finds out what Torchwood is, a handy plot device to introduce new viewers to the characters and history of the old show.
