More details have emerged about the upcoming series of Torchwood, reports Digital Spy, with Russell T Davies revealing that The New World – as the series is subtitled – will take place two years after Children of Earth.
Which of course makes sense, given that the new series is set to air in 2011 after shooting commences in the New Year.
Davies also confirms that Torchwood themselves are pretty much outside the law now, as opposed to their previous “above the law” status.
“Children of Earth left things almost format-less,” he said. “They had no base, no authority and no mission… except to survive. They’re very much underground [now] and trying to survive. They’ve taken extreme actions. They have friends, they have enemies and they have betrayals.”
“Any place can double up as a number of places,” he suggested. “There will be scenes set in Washington, certainly, but we won’t go to Washington to shoot.”
There is little news yet as to where the production will shoot on location, although there is expected to be some location work in Wales.
Torchwood: The New World will star John Barrowman and Eve Myles as Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper, and is produced by BBC Worldwide, BBC America and Starz
