With little choice now but to give in to their demands, the British authorities begin to round up the children under the pretense of giving them inoculations. Panic begins to set in as parents begin to wonder what is happening to their children. Captain Jack is released as are his daughter and grandson and he tries to find a way fight the 456. Gwen and her husband return home to tell Ianto's sister what has happened but they arrive to find a house full of children, whom they try to save from the arriving soldiers. With Fobisher no longer available, Col. Oduya becomes the intermediary and the 456 reveal the reason they need the children. For Captain Jack his finding a way to fight the 456 forces him to make an incredible sacrifice.

Wow.
What a finale, absolutely mindblowing & utterly f*cked up.
Miracle Day, take note.

My main comment is in Day One. I've given the show full marks across the board. Yes maybe some eps should be lower than others, but as 5 hours of drama it is truly amazing & all those hours make up the whole which I couldn't give less than full marks to.

The resolution to the problem is pretty horrific & what Frobisher feels he has to do to his family is a tragedy - if I could have reached in to the screen & slapped the PM I would have done.

This is British drama at its absolute best & Miracle Day has a lot to live up to!

I think PRG is spot on. I loved this series and the more horrifying it was, the better it became. It's hard to rate the series episode by episode, but as a whole it gets a 5
