BBC News recently did an interview with Russell T. Davies, creator and writer of both Doctor Who (new series) and Torchwood. This comes on the heels of the announcement a few days ago that BBC Cymru Wales, BBC Worldwide and Starz Entertainment will be co-producing the next series of Torchwood.
Here’s the video clip of that interview, but after watching it you’ll learn very little of the next series of Torchwood. Apparently RTD doesn’t want to spoil us this early in the development cycle.
Torchwood Series 4 is set to air in the summer of 2011 and, according to the Torchwood Wikipedia page, both John Barrowman and Eve Myles are set to return to play their recurring roles. The new series has been brought down from the reported 13 episodes to just 10, and the storylines will take place in different locations around the world.
I’m really glad that RTD and his crew got a major U.S. cable TV network to help get the next series of Torchwood off the ground. Fans were getting worried that there may not be another series, so this should end all of the speculation that’s been going around the web.
Now we can all sleep better at night. 🙂
