Eve Myles: ‘I’d love to see a Torchwood movie’

Who wants to see a Torchwood movie?

Well, we know some of you do, but until you own a multinational film studio capable of delivering an action pack, adrenaline fuelled sci-fi spectacular whilst having the sheer gumption to let the success of a potential summer behemoth rest on the shoulders of one man cabaret John Barrowman then hush you gums, please.

Eve Myles as Torchwood's Gwen CooperHowever, one person who agrees with your gums, for better or worse, is Eve Myles.

Speaking to SFX Eve revealed that she too would also like to see the down but not quite out series resurrected on the big screen:

“I’d love to see it come back as a movie – a whopping big, kick ass movie, full of action, full of story… Jack, Gwen, Rhys, a huge problem and something extraordinary. But if it comes back it’s always going to be extraordinary, because it’s Russell. I’m just hoping that one day I get to put my leather jacket back on.”

Unfortunately that ‘something extraordinary’ was missing the last time when Torchwood went on its hubrisitic jaunt across the Atlantic. While there maybe some out their a little unsure of the entropy for Eve its nothing that the show and she herself, hasn’t faced before:

“This is no different to me and John from the first series on. There’s always been a 15-16 month gap. In my heart I don’t think it’s the end. If I did think it had reached the end of its natural life, I’d be the first one to say, ‘I’m out of here.’ But it doesn’t feel like the end. I don’t ever want to over-egg the pudding, of course, and I never want to come back with something that people are expecting, either. We’ve always come back different, with something people have loved or hated, and that’s what we want to do again, otherwise we won’t keep making this program because people will get bored.”

Something which isn’t boring is reading about Eve’s career. Seriously, the girl can chat – from her audition for Doctor Who back in 2005…:

“My boyfriend picked me up and he said, ‘You have changed, haven’t you, since the audition? Do you know what you’re wearing?’ I looked down, and I’d auditioned for Gwyneth, this lovely, sweet girl who saves the world and speaks very lovely Welsh, wearing an, ‘I Support Nudist Colonies’ T-shirt, with two naked women making out. I just went, ‘Well, I’ve blown that.’”

…To attempting to fit into the increasing complex and skin tight costumes of Gwen:

“One change with Gwen Cooper for Miracle Day is we gave her this bra, and I swear to god I’ve never seen anything so sci-fi in my life. This bra looked like it was… well I don’t know how it was constructed. They gave it to me and I went, ‘Are you serious? All this running and fighting and jumping about I do – I’ll poke someone’s eye out! Or I’m going to break a lens. I’ve got huge breasts, I cannot wear this scaffolding!’”

For the full and very funny interview with the lovely Eve Myles head over to SFX.

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    I can dream with Eve, and so can a lot of us, I imagine. We just have to somehow keep the yanks out of the kitchen……….

    Please, no more Torwchood without our favorite tea boy Ianto. Let resucitate him for fans’ sake.
    JANTO was the soul of Torchwood.

    A Torchwood movie? No thanks! the last two “series” were not the show that many of us wanted it to be so unless RTD presses that lovely RESET button and FIXES his many mistakes, I say just sweep the show under the rug and “get over it”. It’s dead and as RTD himself is infamous for saying, “dead is dead”. Besides, many fans (and viewers, which are waaaaay more important to RTD) have turned their attention to other shows.
