Eve keeping “fingers crossed” for new Torchwood

Eve Myles has revealed she is keeping her “fingers crossed” that Torchwood will be picked up for another series.

The show which first aired in 2006 has been off our screens since September 2011 when its fourth series – the US based 10 part story Miracle Day – ended to a mixed response.

Since then, the future of Jack and Gwen has been in doubt as its creator Russell T Davies has admitted that he is “not working on” on any new adventures for the forseeable.

“We have no idea,” Eve told BBC Breakfast this week. “Although I fly off to Australia to do a signing tomorrow so it’s still alive and all the fans are still so loyal and passionate.”

The star previously called for a full-length movie to “draw a line under” the franchise.

    It would be great to see Torchwood in another series or mini-series but without the american involvement. TW got it right with Children of Earth so maybe one more mini series to round off the series would be the best way

    I still watch episodes of Torchwood Series 1 and 2 every now and then and it’s hard to believe that it has found itself where it is today.

    I think, although Children of Earth was interesting, things really started to go wrong when they moved away from the 13 unique episodes a Series.

    Another thing they got wrong was destroying the Hub, the SUV and most of the Torchwood team.

    Over the first two series, they were established as key elements of Torchwood and then they were completely destroyed in the last episode of Series 2 and in Children of Earth.

    You have to ask yourself what the Crew thought would be left of Torchwood after that.

    I think ultimately, Children of Earth sowed the seeds of the shows destruction. Had the Torchwood Hub been left intact, it would have been a base for Jack and Gwen to start again should they have wanted to go back.

    They could have built up a new team and gone on from there.

    Miracle Day showed the perils of involving American TV Networks, which we all knew from the 1996 “Movie”, and what was bound to happen when ALL that existed of Torchwood was two people.

    I really liked Torchwood, I really like Eve Myles, but with everything I’ve said on top of RTD showing no interest in Torchwood and Miracle Day destroying anything that was left, unlike Jack Harkness, I don’t see any way Torchwood can return from the dead.

    Very sad.
