95 Days left and it's the day Torchwood is launching at MIPTV in Cannes! John Barrowman and Bill Pullman have made the trip over to promote Torchwood: Miracle Day, and we're sure to get some goodies!

If any news or media comes out of this and it's something we can post we will. At the very least we'll post links to where you can see stuff. Speaking of which DID YOU SEE the new John Barrowman poster to that turned up online?? Posted below this blog and you can also see it thanks to @elinasevele full size.

I love this poster. I hope they make it a poster that can be purchased by the general public and that there is one in every home....everywhere. I would LOVE to own this poster. John is looking great it's really eye-catching and I think the tag line "DEATH IS NOT AN OPTION" is spot on. Every piece of promotional material that's released makes me more sure that MD is going to be amazing.

The general fan reaction to this new picture seems to be one of 2 things. "Wow John Barrowman is looking good" or "John Barrowman is looking a bit thin, is he ok?". I think I am somewhere in between the 2. No doubt John is looking great in this picture but I see what people are saying. I think John has lost a good amount of weight and I saw as much when I met him on location. I don't think people need to be worried though, he wasn't wasting away and it's only my opinion but John doesn't strike me as the type to take weight loss to a bad place. I think he has more sense than that.

My final ruling is the poster gets an A+ and John looks great. But what do you think? How did the poster strike you?  Do you think the tag-line suits the series? And do you think John Barrowman looks better now or do you prefer him a little...fuller? xx

You know I saw the poster and he does look a bit thin, but I don't think it's a situation like Quinn from Dexter. John Barrowman still looks good.

@Naomi - LOL! He's definitely slimmed a bit but yea I don't think we have a Quinn situation on our hands. He looks very good, not sickly :)

John is definitely thinner here, but still very studly. *swoons*I think my heart skipped a beat as the poster wss loading... and at my age, that's not a good thing! Lol I agree the tag line is spot on; Death is not an option. Imagine that being declared in a deep, ominous Darth Vader like voice. Oooh! That gives me chills! It's also very dramatic and brilliant as far as a teaser goes. Although... I guess that means SOMEBODY will live to fight another day... GRRR

Oh that poster is just swoonsome! Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. Yeah, JB's a bit on the slim side, but no wonder, he's been working so hard for months. I'm sure Scott will feed him cake and ice-cream :-) The tag line is perfect, cheeky and menacing at the same time. I want that poster!

@Jac - Haha yea when the poster first posted I got chills! It's so great to see JB in all his Jack glory! Haha yes the tag-line is very ominous, exactly right, I think it works so well. HA! I wouldn't be sure that everyone will make it out, they will more than likely solve the problem and then people will be back to dying. Although I doubt they'll kill her.

@Snowebunny - LOL *swoon* seems to be the general reaction! I so agree, he is dashing! I think you're right, John's been very busy, bet it just happened. All that running in a heavy coat. I'm sure Scott will give him treats yes, he'll make sure he's cared for. The tag line is a little cheeky I love it, this poster NEEDS to be on my wall now!

That is much better than the pre-release poster that was originally up.

John's thinness is seen more when he isn't face on. When John is face on you don't notice it. Sometimes bad things happens for a good reason. John looks more "mature" now. Great poster tho....

@Time_Hound - I think anything that has JB is better than something without JB so I agree! I think he looks great as does the poster :)

Lol This is because I'm busy and forgot to read the whole blog which is excellent btw honey!! Yeh John is looking much slimmer, but I put that down too long days and hot weather. Once he's back home he'll be back to his normal self, though I think he looks great myself!
