When Oscar Lupe appears 20,000 feet up in the air, his body is frozen solid and free-falling to earth. It shatters on impact. Soon after, a CIA Special Activities Division squad goes rogue with a cargo marked 'Torchwood' that they've been escorting from somewhere called Cardiff: a very special shipment the British government is keen to offload at almost any price! The Agency puts Rex Matheson on the case. As the strange deaths pile up, Rex realizes there must be experimental tech out there, but someone is obstructing him at every turn - each time he seems to be catching up with the rogue unit, something puts him off the trail. Rex is the CIA's golden boy - but has he met his match in the evasive Mr Wynter... ? Based on the hit series created by Russell T Davies, The Men Who Sold The World is a prequel to Torchwood: Miracle Day, starring John Barrowman and Eve Myles as Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper, with Mekhi Phifer as Rex Matheson.
