As Eve Myles continues to do the promotional rounds for her new play, All New People, she also continues to be asked about the future of Torchwood now that Miracle Day’s over.

In her latest interview, with Den of Geek, the Gwen actress reaffirms her recent comments that the series remains “in limbo” rather than over. “I know that Russell has put out his situation at the moment, so things have been on hold for a while. That’s all I know,” she explains. “So things have been on hold, but there’s no closure on it at all at the moment.”

She goes on to echo her hopes for a movie next year, commenting: “I imagine it’ll be a screen release in 2013. Then, that would be the end of a massive chapter for us all. The fans, Russell, Julie, me, John. It’d close it. We appreciate our fans too much, the support they have given us from day one. And I know that they also mean the world to Russell.”

Do you think a Torchwood movie next year would be the right way to end the series?

She finishes by admitting that she doesn’t see Gwen being killed off in any future story. “Every year you’re expecting to turn to page 16, and go, oh I’ve been shot in the face,” she admits. “But I think they’ve really developed her into this fantastic everyday hero, so I don’t think that it’d be right to take someone like Gwen Cooper out of the equation.”

    I vote yes for a Torchwood film. But I’d want it to be Children of Earth-style (i.e. undercover, British, big emotional storylines) rather than MD-style. Who knows, maybe they can win back the fans who were disappointed with MD.

    I agree with TSG. I was tempted to say no after Miracle Day because I don’t know that I can stand another series like that.

    Having said that, Torchwood ending on a series like Miracle Day would really be a disservice to Series 1, 2 and 3.

    I don’t know that I want a Torchwood movie though, it almost feels to me like they’re trying to beat Doctor Who to a proper movie.

    would love to see this show back, i would love to see the 13 run show back i thought that was good though a still liked chilrden of earth and miricle day had its moments there was gd moments in sereies 4, but a movie would be great they could do it in a dark knight style and defo need to keep it in cardiff do that for the fans if anything.

    But what about Rex? Cause he can’t die even though he was shot and that needs to be explained more.

    and it’d have to be before the first series came out or in between series 1 and 2

    There’s certainly some ‘loose ends’ to be tidied up if they plan on stopping making Torchwood. I’d like to see it come back to the UK. Looks like there will be no spin offs from Doctor Who any more. Sarah Jane Adventures ending was unavoidable although sad. Even if they did a series with Luke Smith, Rani, etc it couldn’t be Sarah Jane Adventures as it has Sarah Jane in the name (and you couldn’t get a different actress to play the part). Torchwood they are choosing to end.
