A New World for Torchwood

Torchwood: The New World - Captain Jack

As reported in Doctor Who: Podshock, the Doctor Who spin-off series, Torchwood is being relaunched in the US on the Starz network.

The HollywoodReporter.com has an article reporting that name of the rebooted series in the US is Torchwood: The New World. Like last year's acclaimed Torchwood: Children of Earth I would suppose. It is to be ten episodes which to my understanding are telling a story much the same way as Children of Earth did with its five episodes run.

‘Torchwood’ gets new title: ‘The New World’: "Starz' 'Torchwood' reboot will be titled 'Torchwood: The New World' and creator Russell T Davies gave some insight into the storyline.

The new story will follow a CIA agent (Rex) and analyst (Ester) who tackle an alien-related global issue. Torchwood, having been destroyed and disbanded, is 'like a legend now ... it's like something that's ceased to exist and is now spoken of only in whispers.' Soon, Rex and Ester are on the run and are seeking out the help of Captain Jack and Gwen.

The FOUR Doctors at last!

Ok, OK! so it's not a TV episode, but it's something I've been wanting after realising we've had every other combination of numbers of Doctors up to five, but not four.  I would have written earlier about this but there was one FACT that was unclear.  Yes it's free to subscribers but! which Doctor Who ranges would be included?  and as far as I can make out it's the Monthly Doctor Who Range subscribers who get this little gem in their fists.

Big Finish has done this on a regular basis last year saw the release "An Earthly Child" a 8th Doctor and Susan tale, but unlike that release, Big Finish has said as of going to press that this adventure would never be released other than to Subscribers.  Now I see three points here 1.) Big Finish would make an absolute wad of cash if they eventually released this for general sale.  2.) That they must make enough that they can "AFFORD" to do this, but in fact this is very nice present to their subscribers if it remains so.  3.) Internet piracy, maybe at some point this is going to end up on a torrent site.  Great for those who don't want to subscribe but bad for Big Finish, as they may have lawyers but I doubt they have the clout of the BIG Music labels, and I personally would rather see the money going into Big Finish's pockets because this is quite literately how future productions are funded.
