So with the success of Children of Earth and the noises made a couple of weeks ago that there were preparations for a Torchwood Series 4, the question now – given the events of Day Five – is not just when, but how?
With John Barrowman rumoured to be tied up until the middle of 2010, his co-stars are also a little bit busy over the coming months.
So while Mr Song and Dance goes on his summer tour (he played Arundel Castle this weekend) and appears in car magazines with his dog (JB has an eye for the motors), Eve Myles is busy finishing of a new BBC One drama Framed alongside Trevoe Eve. Oh and then Mr Song and Dance is at it again, taking part in a celebrity Around the World in 80 Days with Mylene Klass in tow for Children in Need. It takes the form of a baton race, with a GPS phone and satellite tracker exchanging hands each time. Don’t rule out Barrowman appearing in Doctor Who next year either (just a hunch, not a spoiler)…
Which leaves poor old Kai Owen out of work and longing for Torchwood Series 4:
“I believe the show’s creator Russell T Davies has planned the storyline for Season 4 if this one performs well.
“If there is another one next year, it would probably follow the same format.
“Torchwood is very popular – in the US even more so than Doctor Who – and I am 100 per cent confident another one will go ahead.”
Of course with RTD upping sticks and going Stateside to apparently learn some new tricks:
â€œI havenâ€™t planned anything, all my furniture is now there and Iâ€™m just going to start writing.
â€œIt will take years to get anything made out there. Itâ€™s going to be difficult, so new and so brilliant. I will learn from people and bring it back here one day. Itâ€™s a big adventure and a lot of fun.â€
…there are certainly more questions than answers.
