Eve would like to see a Torchwood movie in 2013

Eve Myles recently told CultBox that she feels a Torchwood movie would be ideal “to draw a line under” the series.

While the future for the spin off is up in the air, following its fourth series, Miracle Day, which aired last year, the Gwen actress has revealed that it’s all “very much on hold” rather than forgotten. “Russell T Davies has things happening in his personal life,” she said. “If and when they need us, they can pick the phone up and we will be there before they’ve even put the phone down, because it’s something we love doing.”

She continued: “Nothing’s going to happen in 2012, I know that much for sure. But who knows what will happen in 2013. Maybe a movie, to kinda draw a line under it.”

John Barrowman’s also expressed interest in taking Jack and Gwen to the big screen.

Eve will soon be taking to the stage for a new West End play, entitled All New People.

    “Draw a line under it”?? But that makes it sound like they’re looking to end it! There are so many more brilliant and fantastic stories Torchwood could tell.

    Yes, it is odd wording. If it’s “on hold”, then why the finality of “draw a line under it”? Hm. I’m going to comfort myself by saying that Eve obviously didn’t mean to imply that TW was ending, and the interviewer is manipulating her words. Yep. Definitely.

    i hope its not the end of TW its one of the shows other than doctor who and merlin that i watch and i wouldnt want them to draw a line under it i want them to continue making it but i dont think a movie is the best way forward a tv series should stay a tv series to me when series start to go into movies they just never feel r seem right to me i would like it to come back for a full 5th series but more cardiff based than usa cos thats what made tw feel like tw for me when i started to watch it and they left the 4th series miracle day on a sort of cliff hanger and opening to make the next series from i hope they do that instead of a movie thats just my own personal opinion buy the way folks

    Una pelicula de Torchwood estaría increible, me gustó mucho la serie y estoy seguro que la pelicula seria un exitazo, esperemos que no sea solo una idea y que si lleven acabo este proyecto. Mis mejores deseos desde México. Me encanta Eve Myles ♥

    Well Russell T Davies has said he wants to move on from Torchwood, so it wouldn’t suprise me if it does come to an end, especially now if his new chidlren’s show.

    Tbh, I think TW recahed its peak with Children of Earth and will never be that great again. Also TW is very much a product of the RTD era of Doctor Who, by which time in 2013 we’ll be long past.

    I feel TW is a very tired show and needs a long rest after the next series and should come back several years later in a revived format, called something like ‘Torchwood: Reborn’. Because the only people who are truly excited about the show now are the fans, as its been so inconsistant in its quality and format, so casual viewers are left confused. TW could have been a truly classic sci-fi show like DW, but all its potential has been wasted due to the constant format changes, yet had it stayed the same it could have gone on for years to come.

    I like TW are much as the next fan, but it’s time for it to end and RTD to move on, especially after the abrupt ending to The Sarah Jane Adventures.

    Along with what Qwen said, I also read somewhere else that RTD’s personal life has caused him to back burner anything he might have done with Torchwood or anything else for television. Entertaining millions isn’t his priority now (it might not ever be again) and its sad really because as much as I’d like to see TW continue on, I’m not sure anyone could do justice to his vision.

    The last series was so bad it’s put me off the whole thing, to be honest. I loved Children Of Earth, but I couldn’t make it to the end of the latest run.

    I’d suggest rewatching it if you can. I found it much more enjoyable on my second run and towards the end it feels more like Torchwood than a second-rate US sci-fi show.

    the only thing i didnt much like about the 4th series miracle day is that u never get to see the monster til the very end of the series which makes it drag a bit as a story narative but all in all i thought it was an alright series on whole :)

    I would like Torchwood to come back on tv or a movie to warp it up, there are still questions from MD I want to to find out like what is The 3 familys Plan B, is Rex Matheson realy like Jack in the way he resurrects and will Jack ever re-join The Doctor for more adventures.

    Series 1, 2 and Children of Earth are Torchwood to me. I call Series 4 Miracle Day not in the same way as I call Series 3 Children of Earth.

    I call it Miracle Day because it didn’t feel like Torchwood, it felt like a new show with a couple of characters from the old show. I’ve said it too much, perhaps, but Torchwood was always about being in Wales, aliens, the hub, the SUV, the technology.

    They were the Torchwood Institute, whereas in Miracle Day, Jack and Gwen were almost like relics who, at the same time, couldn’t accept Torchwood was gone whilst also being glad it was. I found that quite sad.

    Torchwood died with Owen, Toshiko, Ianto and the Hub when it exploded. Even thinking of Miracle Day in the same context as them feels strange, like I’m talking about two different shows.

    I doubt they can recapture the feel of Series 1 to 3 now, in all honesty.

    What dose draw a line under the series mean. I’m hoping they aren’t talking about ending the series. I love Torchwood and I don’t want it to end.
