Torchwood creator Russell T. Davies has revealed that he is happy with the show’s new ten-episode format.
He told SFX that the new series length was perfect for the storyline he had planned for the upcoming fourth series.
“It’s not a Lost-type story, full of mystery, and it’s not particularly complicated – it’s more linear,” he said. “Ten parts just gives us a chance to move it on to the international stage where it takes place.”
The writer promised that the new episodes will take place on a wider scale than previous series.
“The vast majority’s going to take place in America – and other countries as well – so it’s got a size to it. It’s a proper, big, global ten-hour thriller.”
