It seems that Torchwood 4 is a go and that we will have to wait until january in order to know in which format it will come back - will it be as a regular thirteen episode series or will it be a five episode event like Children of Earth was.
None the less, it seems the series is indeed a go.
In a recent TV Guide Magazine interview with Russel T. Davies, the former Doctor Who showrunner, but still Torchwood boss, has revealed that “The recession has hit British television, but fingers crossed, it will be a go. We expect things to start to move in January. We’ve got great ideas for the show. I think there’s a further lease on life for many years to come, but certainly for a [fourth season].”
Den of Geek goes further by claiming that Davies: knows exactly where everything will pick up, too. He admits that he already knows where Gwen, Rhys, their baby and Jack are, and what shape Torchwood itself would actually take (which is a big unresolved issue in itself).
Of all the original Torchwood cast members only Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper are left. Question is, who will be filling the rest of the team?
