Torchwood: Miracle Day is almost upon us, and while we're doing our best to while away the time until the premiere (seriously, we really need our own TARDIS), an action-packed 11-minute behind-the-scenes featurette is here to help a bit with all that waiting.

Released by Starz, the explosive new sneak-preview video (which comes complete with that professional movie-ad-style voiceover we seem to hear everywhere) features some pretty cool scenes that we haven't seen before in previous promo trailers.

It also reintroduces us to what's left of the Torchwood team—which is basically Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles)—while also focusing on the fresh new faces of the upcoming 10-part series, starting with CIA agent Rex Matheson (played by ER's Mekhi Phifer), his partner Esther Drummond (Alexa Havins), Dr. Vera Juarez (Arlene Tur), convicted killer Osward Danes (Bill Pullman) and Jilly Kitzinger (Lauren Ambrose).

We even get to see a wonderful kick-ass moment from Dichen Lachman, who, if you recall, played the wonderful bad-ass Sierra from Joss Whedon's sadly defunct sci-fi series Dollhouse.

Torchwood: Miracle Day will air on Starz Friday, July 8, at 10 p.m. in the U.S. and on Thursday, July 14, at 9 p.m. on the BBC in the U.K.
