RTD: Torchwood “In limbo”

It’s been over a year since Torchwood: Miracle Day ended in a blaze of “if only all 10 episodes had been this good”, and in this time we’ve heard little from the immortal Jack Harkness and down-to-earth Welsh girl Gwen Cooper outside of a couple of books.

Sadly, we’ve even heard little from the show’s creator Russell T Davies.

Fortunately, occasional Doctor Who intruder Graham Norton came to the rescue on Saturday as he welcomed Davies to his Radio 2 morning show. As part of the Wizards vs Aliens promotion (the series starts on CBBC this Monday, continuing on Tuesday), RTD was asked about the future of Torchwood.

“I loved making it over there (in the USA), and I would have carried on if circumstances hadn’t brought me back to this country, so it’s kind of in limbo for me at the moment. I’m not working on it at the moment, I’m only working on Wizards vs Aliens- when I get back to work one day, I don’t know, it’ll be old news to the BBC!

“It’s not officially (cancelled), it’s in a nice limbo where it can stew – those shows can come back in ten, twenty years time.”

You can listen to the full interview on the BBC website, via their revamped iPlayer Radio
