We knew it was coming, but it’s now official says executive producer Julie Gardner.
Not only will the series air on BBC One, Torchwood will have a brand new format. The series will consist of just one continuous story, delivered over 5 consecutive nights.
That’s not the only thing that will be new about the series – Torchwood will have a brand new producer, Peter Bennett, who has previously worked on Torchwood and on Doctor Who as well as ‘The Mummy’, ‘A View to a Kill’ and ‘Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom’. Euros Lyn will also join the team as Director. Euros has directed several Doctor Who episodes including the ‘Silence in the Library / Forest of the Dead’ two-part story from the current series.
