Re: [torchwood] spinoffs
- I was thinking along the same lines myself, re the whole Time War
scenario and use Paul McGann as the Doctor again, as a spinoff.
Torchwood is doing well, and Doctor Who has done so well, that if
resources were there, I am sure that it would be worth making and would
be a success. And a chance to see more Daleks and Time Lords. And we
could find out what caused it. Was it caused by the spirit of the
Master, whom the Doctor took to Skaro, the Dalek homeworld, when played
I was thinking as well, that it is even feasible to have the Doctor
appear in Torchwood, but NOT the current Doctor. He said earlier that he
remembered Harriet Jones being Prime Minister in the near future, so
either as Eccleston or McGann he would have visited the Earth at that
time, and maybe at the time of the current Torchwood series.
If they have not put that into the first series already, maybe it could
go into the second series. Although in the Torchwood episode of Doctor
Who, the Doctor was surprised to find Torchwood and said he had never
heard of it before, and Torchwood said they had kept themselves secret
from him. So there could not be any knowledge of Torchwood, but maybe a
brief visit involving one of the characters meeting the Doctor and
reporting back to Captain Jack, who then wants to go off and find the
Doctor to find out why he is now immortal. Except that the Doctor would
not remember Capt Jack as to the Doctor, their meeting in WW2 is still
So many possibilities, we can only hope that the BBC will make the
resources available to explore many avenues of the Doctor Who universe.
