With Torchwood: Miracle Day a little less than a month away, Starz is amping up the promotions. Now they've released five spoiler-free "first-person clips" of Miracle Day's main characters.

In each clip, the characters introduce themselves and hammer home the fact that Miracle Day is less of a miracle and more of a harbinger of terrible things to come.

In these clips, we get to meet Esther Drummond (Alexa Havins), CIA agent Rex Matheson (Mekhi Phifer) and the villainous Jilly Kitzinger (Lauren Ambrose). And then there's what's left of the Cardiff branch of Torchwood. These clips are heavy on mood. And after seeing Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles) and Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) completely unraveled, the mood is disturbing as hell.

What do you think of these clips?
