Torchwood – Doctor Who spinoff

Torchwood Lights Up May – Slice of SciFi

In a recent interview with SciFi Wire, writer-producer Russell T.Davies (Doctor Who) stated that filming for the 13-episodes of Torchwood, the Doctor Who spinoff, will begin in May on location in England.

“Torchwood” is, appropriately, an anagram of Doctor Who, which I think is pretty clever.

The show will apparently be aimed squarely at adults, in contrast to Doctor Who’s family-friendly story lines. I just hope they don’t play up the character’s bi-sexuality. It was good for a few gags in the 5 Doctor Who episodes introducing the Jack Harkness character, but I really think it would end up being tired pretty quickly.

It is a fun character, though. Con men are always good characters to write for, in my opinion. Lots of opportunities there.

I hope “adult” doesn’t mean a) laden with sexuality, or b) dark and heavy. If they keep with the general tone they established in the Doctor Who episodes, the series should be pretty good.

It’d be nice if they’d air it in the States, too…
