Russell T Davies has been talking to BBC Radio Wales about the new Torchwood TV series.
As well as confirming that Captain Jack would be “heading up the Torchwood team” Russell also explains the origins of the ‘Torchwood’ name:
“When we were making the first Doctor Who series, television pirates were desperate to get their hands on a tape, one of the people in the office had the idea of calling the tapes of episodes, as they went from Cardiff to London, Torchwood, instead of putting Doctor Who on it.”
He also comments on the lack of a Doctor Who US sale saying it’s nice not to be “slaves to American masters”.
Elsewhere it’s been reported that James Hawes is to produce the show and will be directing some of the episodes.
