From this page:

The stars of the previous versions of “Torchwood,” notably John Barrowman (Capt. Jack Harkness) and Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper), will return for the new version. Additional key cast, reflecting the more international scope of the series, will be announced soon.
...
The new series will allow Davies and his writing team to tell a more explosive and global story, one that takes advantage of the unlimited narrative opportunities of a premium television service like Starz.
...
“Russell, Jane and Julie came to us with a compelling vision for the evolution of the ‘Torchwood’ saga that really takes the story into whole new areas,”
...
“The compelling story and characters this trio created provide a strong template for driving this narrative in exciting ways.”
...
‘Torchwood’ will burst back onto the screen with a shocking and moving story with global stakes and locations that will make it feel bigger and bolder than ever”


Maybe it'll be good, but the press release gives me the same who-needs-good-dialog-when-you-can-have-more-explosions-instead vibe that I get from the ads for Michael Bay movies.

I love Torchwood, and I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm going to have to hate this.


Oh, and speaking of John Barrowman, am I the last one to realize he is in the "new" Producers film?

Things, and things.

Of course not. These people still don't know. [Big Grin]

Yes, they'll probably have too many explosions, but I have a sneaking suspicion Barrowman can make that work.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.
