Torchwood USA ‘Ongoing’
Back in January there were reports that Fox were developing a US version of Torchwood, much to the annoyance of many fans. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox have now scrapped their plans.
“BBC Worldwide Productions and the FOX Broadcasting Company have mutually agreed not to progress together with a 13-episode serialized ‘Torchwood’ format,” said BBC Worldwide in a statement. “We are currently in discussion with several interested networks.”
But before any of you get too relieved BBC Worldwide’s Jane Tranter said, “It’s very much ongoing and very much alive.”
As for rumours of Doctor Who USA, it looks like that horrible idea at least isn’t going to materialise any time soon.
“It may well be confusing to have a British Doctor and an American Doctor at the same time,” Tranter said. “There is only one Doctor, so I don’t see that happening.”
