As Doctor Who‘s first ongoing spin-off series celebrates its 10th anniversary, John Barrowman talks Torchwood…
Following John’s comment at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con that he was “working very hard” to return Torchwood to our TV screens”, DWM asks John what that was all about…
“Every production company I go into, I’m not kidding, they say, ‘Is there any way we could get Torchwood back up and running?’” says John. “I’ve heard this so many times that I thought, ‘I’m going to find out if we can do it.’
“I started planting seeds, dropping a few hints,” John continues, “and it did exactly what I wanted it to: it blew up and everyone was like, ‘Oh my God, Barrowman wants to bring back Torchwood!’ Which, I’ve got to be honest with you, I really do. Because I travel around the world, I go to all these conventions, I see all these people – and I speak to all these production companies – who are desperate for it to come back.”
