Spin-offs and Torchwood Series 5 Update
With both Doctor Who and Sherlock on the go, Steven Moffat has quite a lot on his plate. So it comes as little surprise to learn he isn’t planning any Whoniverse spin-offs in the near future.
“I’m not against it. Spin-off shows happen because you think ‘That is so good, you should spin it off’ – but personally I’m relatively busy,” he explained.
So any fans holding out for The Madame Vastra & Jenny Show, probably best not get your hopes up.
Doctor Who’s only remaining spin-off, Torchwood, is said to be in a state of limbo with its future uncertain.
US network Starz, this week gave an small update. Chris Albrecht told Multichannel: “Obviously, we’re in touch with the BBC all the time. They are our partners on DaVinci’s Demons and the Harem project that you just mentioned. We told them, we stand by ready for any news, but I think it would be a while before Russell came back to Torchwood.”
Russell T Davies is currently working on a new CBBC show, Wizards vs. Aliens, which had a title flip. It was previously Aliens vs. Wizards.
