RE: [torchwood] Will Torchwood Ever Return
- I think it was made pretty clear before his partner became ill that RTD
wasn't too interested in resurrecting TW. I'm still not sure why the BBC
would only get involved in MD when they had financial assistance with STARZ.
I do not expect to see any further Torchwood episodes. Maybe a one-off
someday, but it has been treated like a naughty stepchild ever since MD. We
do this in the US, too, kill off shows with great ratings for unknown
reasons. I doubt we'll ever know what really happened.
Cheery message for a Sunday morning.

Subject: [torchwood] Will Torchwood Ever Return
A while back I read a statement from Russell T Davies that Torchwood has
been put on indefinite hold pending the medical condition and possible death
of his partner and that the show could possibly return. Has anyone read or
heard anything else? I noticed that new episodes of other series run by Mr.
Davies were still being aired. Maybe they were filmed before he took his
leave to care for his partner.
- I am so enjoying this discussion. I can't stand Gwen, never could for all the reasons listed - mean, selfish, but touted as perfect. I think I could have handled the mean and selfish if she'd not been considered wonderful, if she;d had some redeeming characteristic.
I haven;t seen Even in much, so no comments from me on that.
I too wonder what made RTD fall for her and mess up the show so badly. I still miss Ianto, but after all these years I'm finally reading Janto again.
Did not watch MD again; once was enough. I am watching the eps from the 1st two seasons that I have saved.
