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 instalment will see storylines widen to include locations in the US 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 can't wait, but I hope it continues with the quality of Series 3, Children of Earth.

Does this mean it won't be a BBC Cymru Wales Production? I hope this doesn't take a turn for a worse by having an American Partner, we don't want another version of CSI. As it's BBC Worldwide, who have advertising, does this mean the show will have more 'Product Placement' as such?

And also, set around the world? This seems a bad turn, and already it similarises Torchwood to other programs, where as before it had originality.

Russell has spoken about both Torchwood, and his opinions on the new Doctor Who series.

Funny when Davies takes the piddle out of the reporter for calling him Barrow-Man.
Who is she anyway? A London specific reporter? She asks questions like Clarkson reviews cars!
