Torchwood star Eve Myles has told BBC Breakfast she has “no idea” whether the Doctor Who spin-off will return for a fifth series.
Myles was on the show to discuss her new BBC One drama Frankie in which she plays a District Nurse with a work addiction and messy personal life.
Asked if Torchwood could return for more adventures, she initially joked that anew series was coming but then added: “We have no idea, we’re all keeping our fingers crossed”
The series first aired in 2006 on BBC Three before moving to BBC Two and eventually BBC One.
Initially a 13-part weekly show, the third series was stripped across a single week and featured Myles’s Gwen Cooper and colleagues Capt. Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and Ianto Jones (Gareth David-Lloyd) tackling aliens demanding humanity handed over its children.
In 2011 the show returned for a 10-part weekly series in the BBC/Starz co-production Torchwood: Miracle Day in which Earth is facing a phenomenon known as “Miracle Day”, where nobody dies.
Although a ratings hit in the UK, the US reception to the show was more muted.
In October 2012, show creator Russell T Davies announced that for personal reasons the show would enter indefinite hiatus.
