BBC Worldwide LTD has released a new iOS app, Torchwood: Web of Lies (App Store link) to coincide with the new Torchwood series,Torchwood: Miracle Day. It is a series of adventures presented in episodes within the app. The first free download gives you episode 1 of Torchwood: Web of Lies. Each week after coinciding with the new series there will be another new episode released (presumably sold as an in-app purchase). Each episode tells the story through animated graphics and gameplay. There will be 10 episodes in total, again mirroring the current series, Miracle Day.
It is a universal app so it will run natively on both the iPhone (and iPod touch) and iPad.
The following is their description for the app:
Hold tight for the next DW: Podshock episode coming soon… in the meantime, there's a new episode of The Sonic Newsdriver out today filled with Doctor Who, Torchwood, and related news.

Elisabeth Sladen's passing and other Doctor Who news, Anthony S Burdge and Jessica Burke report on the Doctor Who 2011 NYC Premiere event, feedback, and more.
We are a week out from the launch of the new 2011 series of Doctor Who. I don't where the time goes. It's here again. Being that the next Sunday after next Saturday's premiere is a holiday, the first live over-the-net show reviewing the new Doctor Who episodes of Doctor Who: Podshock will be on the following Sunday, May 1st. We may or may not be using Talkshoe again. I am exploring other options if anyone has any to offer. Stay tuned here for forthcoming details.
But before next Saturday comes, this Saturday (April 16, 2011), or for some already, today, I will be speaking on a panel at I-CON 30 from 3pm to 4pm (EDT) (in room 111 in the Javits Lecture Hall at SUNY, Stony Brook, NY). The panel is titled, '21st Century Doctor Who.' Ken Deep of Doctor Who: Podshock will also be on the panel. The panel is being organized by Docking Bay 516 for I-CON. So if you are attending I-CON this year, be sure to attend this panel.
In the meantime, the latest episode of The Sonic Newsdriver is available. Along with the usual Doctor Who related news, it features a 'live' interview with Anthony S Burdge @MythicDocWho while he was in line for the special premiere showing of the first two episodes of the new series in NYC which took place on Monday, April 11th.
Speaking of The Sonic Newsdriver, the companion app for the podcast is already available in the Apple iTunes App Store for iOS devices (App Store link) and on AppBrain for Android devices, it is now also in the Amazon Appstore for Android devices. See details here.
Starz has set the debut of Torchwood: Miracle Day, the latest Torchwood series, a spin-off of Doctor Who in the US for Friday, the 8th of July 2011. The BBC has yet to announce a date at this time. We will keep you posted when they do. Along with the date, Starz has released this new promotional image/poster for the new series (see below for a large version).
The new Torchwood series should fit in nicely schedule-wise in between the first and second half of the 2011 Doctor Who series.
