Some new information regarding the now confirmed third season of Torchwood - courtesy of the official Torchwood Magazine, published monthly by Titan.
The publication states on its Facebook page:
Torchwood executive producer Julie Gardner has confirmed that a third series of Torchwood will start filming in August. The new series will comprise one continuous story told over five one-hour episodes on BBC1, with episodes by Russell T Davies and other as yet unnamed writers. Though our new issue had just gone to press just before the new series was announced, we got straight on the phone to Julie, who told us:
“As you know, plans for a third series have been underway for a long time, and we now have a new producer and a new director in place, as well as brand new scripts all ready to go. It’s the longest and most ambitious story we have ever made, so be prepared for some shocks and surprises! Life at Torchwood is never quiet or easy, and the whole of Captain Jack's world is about to be turned upside down!”
Issue 6 of Torchwood Magazine is on sale in the UK on 19th June!
It's the first time we've had it confirmed that Davies will still be involved with the series next year, following the departures of both Richard Stokes and Chris Chibnall.
More news on season three in the coming weeks!
