Miracle Day Radio Times Cover

The new edition of the Radio Times (for period 9-15 July) features Russell T Davies talking about taking Torchwood to Hollywood, as well as a stunning Gwen Cooper and Captain Jack Harkness cover!

Speaking about Jack, played by John Barrowman (who also returns to BBC schedules this Saturday evening with Tonight’s the Night – it’ll be like he never went away) Davies says:

“The audience will see that Captain Jack is darker, but he’s still got his wit. The journey he goes on is extremely different from the journey he’s been on before. It’s absolutely, jaw-droppingly exciting.”

Meanwhile Radio Times also caught up with one-woman-whirlwind Julie Gardner, who tells of how the show came to move Stateside and receive co-funding from Starz.

“We wanted to do more episodes, we wanted to find a way to tell a bigger length of story, and all of that thinking coincided with us being in America.”

Meanwhile, Radio Times has a new website which features some behind-the-scenes footage of Torchwood’s John Barrowman and Eve Myles as they step back into costume exclusively for the Radio Times cover shoot and talk about the new series, green screen and all!
