Barrowman: “I haven’t heard anything”

John Barrowman spoke to Digital Spy this week about his current and upcoming activities – including a possible extended run on the US drama Desperate Housewives – and of course conversation turned to Torchwood.

John Barrowman - any sign of Torchwood s4?Barrowman was as usual denying all knowledge of any immediate future for Torchwood – only this time strangely consistent with previous statements. He genuinely seems to have no idea what is happening.

“I don’t know if we’re gonna be filming Torchwood. I haven’t heard anything. I haven’t heard anything about what you’re talking about! I only know that I would – at the drop of a hat – love to do Torchwood again.

“I would love to do more than five episodes. But if we’re only going to do five episodes, I’m happy with that.”

He added: “I love the character, I love the show, and I would love to do it again. But I don’t have any other information – I’m so sorry.”

So – what future for Torchwood? Is an American co-production the show’s only future, despite the success of Children of Earth?
