Following yesterday's announcement that Torchwood will be 'bumped' in Australia, there's some good news at last. North American High Definition cable network HDNET will begin broadcasting Torchwood on September 17th - just over a week after the first episode has debuted on BBC America. Mark Cuban, president of HDNet, has this to say:
"We're thrilled to be airing TORCHWOOD in HD. This is certainly a Russell T. Davies signature show. TORCHWOOD explores adult themes and doesn't shy away from anything. Whether it's the diverse storylines or the hero's ambivalence to sexual boundaries, this is not your typical show, and I love it."
In other news Noel Clarke, writer of season one episode "Combat", has admitted that he's too busy with other projects to return for the show's second year. He goes on to suggest that he could even be making a dashing return to Doctor Who during its fourth season next year, once more playing the role of the 'idiot' Mickey.
Looks like 2008 is gonna be a big year for the return of familiar faces...
