One of the many endearing aspects of Doctor Who (and by association, Torchwood) is it’s cheesiness and cheap looking sets. That’s changed in the “new” versions thanks to improved technology and slightly bigger budgets. But what about Torchwood’s newest season set across the pond? How does a tripled budget sound?
Hell to the yeah.
With the bigger budget, Russel Davies is promising us bigger stunts and more sex. Basically everything we liked about the first three (yeah, I’m counting Children of Earth as a season) seasons ramped up. John Barrowman said “the audience is going to need a forklift truck to pick their jaws off the ground.”
Damn you Barrowman! You took my pick up line!
Other promises? The same bisexuality you’ve come to love from the show. That and aliens. Always aliens. Also, Barrowman said Captain Jack’s famous coat has been modified a little but I’m cool with that. It’s not like the coat was what made the Captain so… captain-y. Besides, as Barrowman pointed out, it’s pretty damn hot in LA. Who wants to wear a British RAF coat in that kind of heat?
