As most Whovians know, Torchwood was a spin off series from Doctor Who. It follows the Torchwood team that tracks down and eliminates threats to the planet. The show first aired in October 2006, and ended its run in 2011. Rejoice, fans! Jack Harkness is coming back for a full fifth installment titled Torchwood: Aliens Among Us. He and Gwen Cooper have restarted Torchwood in a drastically changed Cardiff.
James Goss will be producing, and shared a few details.
“But there are also some familiar old faces – of course Rhys and Andy are in it, but there’ll be a few other surprises, including an appearance by someone who just has to be, has to be dead…”
This, of course, has people sure that Captain Jack’s romantic interest, Ianto Jones, who died in season three, will be back.
This new Torchwood won’t be on screen. Instead, it is set to be an audio series. It has still had a lot of input from Russell T. Davies who created the original series though. So, the format isn’t exactly the same, but it seems safe to say it’s in good hands, and fans will be pretty happy with it in the end.
Are you excited for the return? How do you feel about it being just audio?
