TORCHWOOD RETURNS!! Plus ALL THE SINGLE LADIES!!
I'm so fucking amped on this I could shit a Tardis!! The Doctor Who spin-off series Torchwood has been given ten new episodes coming off of the awesome Children Of Earth run. Here's the press statement:
BBC Cymru Wales, BBC Worldwide and US premium entertainment network, Starz Entertainment, have today announced a three way co-production partnership that will develop a new series of the hit BBC sci-fi drama Torchwood. BBC Worldwide will also distribute the series to broadcasters globally.
The 10-episode instalment will be written by a team led by Torchwood creator, Russell T Davies, and produced by BBC Worldwide Productions. Davies and BBC Worldwide Productions' SVP Scripted, Julie Gardner, return as executive producers with BBC Worldwide Productions EVP Jane Tranter. The series has been commissioned by Controller BBC ONE, Jay Hunt, Controller BBC Drama, Ben Stephenson, and Starz President and CEO, Chris Albrecht.
While previous series were based on location in Cardiff, Wales, this new installment will see storylines widen to include locations in the U.S. and around the world. John Barrowman and Eve Myles will return in their roles as Captain Jack and Gwen respectively, along with new faces.
I'm amped on this for a multitude of reasons but the main was is I get to continue watching John Barrowman rock shit the right way as Captain Jack. It's been a really long time since a character was so charming, complex as well as kicking serious amounts of ass. Only the British could have an action hero who is bi-sexual (and into aliens as well) plus make him goofy and funny instead of Dark And Melancholy. Want further proof John Barrowman is THE ONE!! Dig this and be silenced:
