Davies Hints at Torchwood Series 5
In an interview with the Guardian, Russell T Davies has hinted at a potential fifth series of Torchwood.
“In theory I could have handed [Miracle Day] over to a bunch of strangers and said good luck to them – and if there was another series I might do that because I think there’s only so long you can spend doing Torchwood,” he said.
But Davies added: “I say that,” he laughs, “I start the series and I think, I’m never doing this again. [But] I’ve got one more story that I can tell – just one more that has Gwen right at the centre of it – that would be fantastic. So I’m my own worst enemy.”
However, Davies pointed out that the future of the show could be in an awkward spot: “The very interesting thing will be, what if [Miracle Day] does well on Starz but doesn’t do well on BBC1? Or if the BBC1 money is tight and they have to take money away – does it become entirely a Starz production, which means they have to own the rights? Would the BBC do that? Would they actually give away rights to an existing property?”
