Children of Earth 'survivors' John Barrowman and Eve Myles are moving away from Torchwood for the time being (?) to head up a couple of individual projects.
Firstly, Eve Myles will be appearing alongside Trevor Eve in a new BBC One drama commission, titled Framed. According to DigitalSpy, "the programme, adapted from Frank Cottrell Boyce's best-selling children's novel, sees a secretive convoy of men invade a Welsh village." It's expected to air this Winter on the BBC.
Also coming up, John Barrowman will be travelling across the globe as part of this year's Children in Need extravaganza Around the World in 80 Days. Various celebrities will be paired up, and travel segments of the world together. John's partner is the ever lovely (if boring...) Myleene Klass. Other celebs taking part include Lee Mack and Frank "I'm funny me, honest" Skinner. ETA - October/November.
5.8 million viewers (26.7% of the available audience) saw the last part of the Children of Earth serial on BBC One last night, making it the 4th most watched programme of the day.
We'll have a full ratings round-up in a couple of weeks when the full data breakdown is released.
In the meantime you can catch Torchwood: Children of Earth on DVD and Blu-Ray from Monday at all good entertainment outlets.
