Russell T. Davies, the archduke of Torchwood, couldn’t be happier with Series 4’s brand new 10 episode structure – in fact he was so happy, he told SFX all about it:
“Itâ€™s not a Lost-type story, full of mystery, and itâ€™s not particularly complicated – itâ€™s more linear,” he said. “Ten parts just gives us a chance to move it on to the international stage where it takes place.”
Head Writer/Producer Davies has also promised that the scope for the new International Torchwood will be expanded to meet its new horizons:
“The vast majorityâ€™s going to take place in America – and other countries as well – so it’s got a size to it. Itâ€™s a proper, big, global ten-hour thriller.”
While not actually saying a whole lot Davies did let slip that he felt that the five-part Children of Earth was ‘rushed’ and could easily have ran on for at least three more episodes.
Torchwood Series 4 will see the return of both John Barrowman as (Group) Captain Jack Harkness and Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper – the series is set to air simultaneously on the Starz network and the BBC in Summer 2011.
SFX 199 is on sale this Wednesday where you can teased by Davies all over again, you lucky tykes.
