Did we fool you? Sorry- I had to!
They were all lying! Probably because Starz are annoyed at the news!
After a long wait Torchwood finally returns in a brand new, twenty five Part Season on Fox in Torchwood: 25.
Russell T Davies returns to the writing frontline and spoke exclusively to RTPProductions saying this: “We’ve decided to do a real time twenty five hour long story based on terrorist aliens. Jack, Gwen, Rhys and Rex return alongside a new member played by Kiefer Sutherland who plays Back Jauer: an FBI agent in New York.”
The story will see the team in real time saving the world from a new alien menace with the help of the FBI. Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran join the writing team. Joel comments: “TW:25 is nothing like 24: it’s alien, has a backwards ticking clock and has some amazing gay sex scenes! I love Russell’s work and to have Kiefer on set is just fantastic!
John Barrowman, who returns as Jack Harkness, comments: “I am so excited to be part of the new season! Be prepared for some amazing CGI and a great storyline!”
Filming begins tomorrow on location in New York where a new Torchwood Hub is being built. Further cast confiremed includes a currently unnamed FBI agents played by Mary Lynn Rajskub, Carlos Bernard, Elisha Cuthbert; Mark Sheppherd as The President and, making a return as a new character, Gareth David Lloyd as the FBI Coffee Boy.
The show is set to return the Fall, (the USA have confirmed the 1st November, the BBC have yet to comment however it is likely it will begin later,) and will run daily over the course of one month. A special twenty five Hour screening will be aired two days later.
More news including the first promotional image emerge tomorrow! However we have the first title available to us: “The Fool of April.”
