Seven Years’ Good Luck?

The Scottish Sun (the kilt-wearing cousin of the Kasterborous-recommended brand of toilet paper) seems to have had a lengthy chat with Torchwood star John Barrowman where nothing new is really discussed except the possibility that the show may have a long life yet to come in America…

“I have turned down a load of other shows to make Torchwood.  We’ll be filming it in LA as it’s now a collaboration between the BBC and the Starz network in America.  They’re planning to make it for the next seven years.  So I’ll be spending six months a year in Hollywood and six back in the UK.”

Hear that?  Seven!  If this is true then the three seasons we’ve already seen don’t even come close to being half the planned series!  We could go all the way to a tenth season!

But would that be successful?  Torchwood’s habit seems to be to build on itself exponentially with each successive season.  Is it possible that Davies & Co. will run out of ideas before the seven years are up?  And if not, what will Torchwood be like in 2017?

We’ll abide by our morals and previous oaths and not provide a link to The Sun so you can see for yourself, but just so you know we’re not making this up, here’s someone else who reported this before we did.

Torchwood: The New World airs on BBC One and Starz this summer, presumably to lift our spirits during the brief Doctor Who down time.
