Torchwood Podcast Interviews
- Torchwood Podcast Interviews
June 23, 2011 by Nathan Rodgers
With the internet already awash with rumours about what fans can
expect from Torchwood: Miracle Day, OTB was given a special advance
preview of the first episode of the show and also several interviews
with the main players responsible for the success of the Doctor Who spinoff.
Expect to hear key details about what fans can expect when the
programme airs later this year and whether Ianto will make a return,
John Barrowman's willingness to link up with Doctor Who, and Russell
T Davies' thoughts on bringing Matt Smith's sweetheart Riversong and
Captain Jack together in a team at some point (though sadly he was
less keen on a collaboration between himself and Stephen Moffat).
Please note: The interviews were recorded at the British Film
Institute, who saw fit not to cancel the annoying tannoy
announcements. While we've done our best at OTB to edit these pesky
noises out,sometimes it was not completely possible, but these
shouldn't hinder your listening pleasure much. The phrase pissup in a
brewery comes to mind.
Please note that some of these interviews may contain spoilers.
The involvement of a big Hollywood hitter really is an example of how
the show has grown in it's popularity. Speaking to a very jetlagged
Bill (who previously starred in Sleepless In Seattle and Independence
Day), he talked admiration for Russell T Davies, the rainy weather in
Wales, and his dream of appearing someday as an alien in Doctor Who.

OTB are happy to confirm that JB's not just the life of the party, he
IS the party. The excitable performer spoke of his wanting to be
involved in the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, working on Live and
Kicking back in the old days, and his love of my stripy pink shirt
with flowery cuffs.

The Welsh wonder was her usual adorable self, chatting to me about
working in LA, her character Gwen's recent addition to the Torchwood
family, and the loving relationship between herself and John behind

Russell T Davies OBE
The legendary writer who famously rebooted Doctor Who after a 16 year
absence on the BBC gave us an insight into the man behind the
scripts, his thoughts on Stephen Moffat and what he has done for
Doctor Who, and also his plans to possibly pair up Captain Jack and
the feisty TARDIS flying Riversong in a future television series.
