article imageTorchwood not cancelled, currently ‘in limbo’

By Mathew Wace Peck     Oct 29, 2012 in Entertainment
Torchwood, the Doctor Who spin-off science-fiction series starring John Barrowman and Eve Myles, has not been cancelled, but remains “in limbo” for the time being.
The news comes from the show’s creator, Russell T Davies, who was being interviewed by Graham Norton on his BBC chat show, The Graham Norton Show.
Asked by Norton whether Torchwood had been cancelled, Davies replied, “It’s not officially. It’s in a nice limbo [it] can come back in ten, 20 years time.”
To date, there have been four series of the popular science-fiction series, the most recent – Torchwood: Miracle Day – having transferred production from its original home in Cardiff, Wales, to Los Angeles.
Following his departure as showrunner of Doctor Who in 2009, Davies relocated to the US to work on a number of projects for BBC America. However, in 2011, he was forced to move back to the UK after his partner, Andrew Smith, was diagnosed with cancer.
Since then, most of Davies’s television projects have been put on hold. The exception being his new children’s science-fiction/fantasy drama series Wizards vs Aliens, which receives its TV premiere in the UK this evening (Monday, 29 October).
Wizards vs Aliens replaces CBBC’s The Sarah Jane Adventures, which was cancelled last year after its star, Elisabeth Sladen, died. The new series has been developed by the same production team.
Last week, the Welsh-born writer confirmed he was not involved with the BBC’s plans for Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary celebrations, which will take place throughout 2013.
On Torchwood, Davies added, “I loved making it [in the US], and I would have carried on if circumstances hadn’t brought me back to this country, so it’s kind of in limbo for me at the moment.”
