There are also some reports that the fourth season of Torchwood might start development as early as January of next year:
“The recession has hit British television, but fingers crossed, it will be a go. We expect things to start to move in January. We’ve got great ideas for the show. I think there’s a further lease on life for many years to come, but certainly for a [fourth season],” [ Russell T.] Davies says. John Barrowman is finishing his run in “La Cage Aux Folles” in London, so there’s plenty of time to trade his feather boa for Captain Jack’s trench coat. [TV Guide Magazine]



  1. I think the feather boa AND the trench coat would look fabulous together! I'm sure Captain Jack could carry it off, as well. Great to hear there will probably be a fourth season of Torchwood, I hope they bring back some of the old team as well (I still miss Ianto!).

  2. I miss Ianto too :( I wish there was a way to resurrect him.
