Chatting recently to website CultBox, former Torchwood star Eve Myles revealed that she’s ready and willing to return to the alien-busting government conspiracy show – should the call ever come.
On the promotional trail for a new series called Frankie, Myles – who played Gwen Cooper in the show and in Doctor Who Series 4 finale The Stolen Earth/Journey’s End – confirmed that she hadn’t heard anything from Torchwood creator Russell T Davies.
But whatever Russell brings to me, I appreciate. When he’s ready, if he is ever ready, then he’s got people who love and adore it just as much as he does.
She does, however, raise an interesting point about the journey of Torchwood.
If it has ended in Hollywood, well, then we came from BBC Three to BBC Two to BBC One to Hollywood – that’s a drama in itself. Wonderful experience, wonderful memories.
Along the way, of course, Torchwood went from mad (Series 1 and 2) to compelling (Children of Earth) before making a schizophrenic return to screens from a base in LA with the fourth run, Miracle Day – a series most fans would rater forget.
But when might a Torchwood return happen? And could it be a movie?
It would be great if it did go out with a great bang, as it were, and we got our nice little movie. But who knows? It’s one of those things – it’s a creature that changes format every time it comes back. It might come back as a Christmas special, you don’t know. It could happen now or it could happen in twenty years time. If it pops its little head up again, I’m sure we’ll be back.
