Ladies, Breaking News! (and I say that with only a bit on sarcasm) Torchwood will be back next year with a 10-episode series set 'mostly' in the US. Barrowman and Myles will be back and maybe whoever-plays-Rhys. The rest will be new cast members, probably American.

And Russell, of course, since he gave up DW, but you'll notice, did not walk away from TW or SJA. Apparently he wrote episode 1 seven months ago. It's just finally been picked up by BBC1 and BBCAmerica.

As I said, just a bit of sarcasm. This could go two ways. I have not forgotten Children of Earth.

TORCHWOOD SERIES 4! A full 13 episodes, though a confirmed filming date has not yet been issued. As well, the only confirmed (non-rumour) cast member is Barrowman.

I'm hoping Eve signs up; I'd miss Gwen something terrible.

I was beginning to get a little worried there, but as usual Russell was just saving all the best things for last!

The thing is, what no one ever remembers, Jack is exactly like the Doctor. He never gets his happy ending. And he's always going to run away. Hell of a run.

Rhys and Gwen are just so bloody adorable.

All in all, it was good and dramatic and I really hope they never do it again. Series 4 will be a long time coming. That's okay; I want my Series 5 DW first!

Are these not the most boring aliens in history? There must be a lead-up here, I just can't tell what it is.

I repeat that I want those contacts.

NAKED JOHN BARROWMAN! Well, since everyone else has seen him, seems fair.

I am so thoroughly grossed out right now. Good thing I knew not to eat.

"What's in there?"

"Big science fiction super base. Honestly."

Oh Gwen, sweetheart, I love you. And we all knew that one was coming. ::already crying over the lack of series 4::

Disclaimer: Torchwood, Cardiff, and especially the Water Tower, do not belong to me. I just couldn’t pass this up.

Author’s Note: Inspired by the accompanying picture taken 24 June 2009 as they were in the process of pasting the strawberries up. The Strawberry is the designated symbol this summer of the Cardiff Festival, starting this month. for more information.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair )

Torchwood Radio Play: 'Asylum'

Can I just ask, what the fuck is up with you Jack Harkness? You've never been this much of a bastard before. Clearly Journey's End had an adverse effect.

I love Andy! I am all for the Andy and I hope it becomes a regular for series 4. Crushing on the Andy!

As opposed to the earlier ones, ya know? ;D

I swear on the pigheadedness and lack of dress sense possessed by 99.99% of Time Lords that this post will have pictures to accompany it before midnight GMT today. Or rather, tomorrow.

I'm in a mood, can't you tell?

Tuesday 23 June, 2009, 10:16 GMT:

Caught train to Birmingham. On the whole, a rather reasonable hour, followed by an amazingly short wait in the Birm (or B'ham, whichever you adhere to being the more amusing). Lo' and Behold Cas was waiting for me on the train that left Nottingham directly but not Leicester. Buggering East Midlands. Although the west sucks with its Swine Flu right now, so I'm only marginaly complaining.

Arrived Cardiff Central Station, 13:31 GMT:

Found the lovely hostel, on the beautiful banks of the River Whatever It Is When It Flows Through Cardiff, beside the stunning new Millennium Stadium (I say new, I mean relative to say the Castle), on a perfect summer's day.

And then the adventure really got going, because all of that other stuff was travel and therefore Not Important To the Matter At Hand.

Day 1:
Walked up to the park (c. 300m) and saw the stone circle (newish), the ruins of Black Friers (not newish) and spent the rest of the afternoon in the castle (most definitely not newish). It wasn't all that busy, so there was much wandering and picture taking and talking to the guides (very knowlegable!) Apparently the Fourth Something of Somewhere had a thing for monkeys and a beef with Darwin. I suppose it can be forgiven. The library was awesome.

Wandered around the city centre (charming) for a bit and then had dinner at Pizza Express (gorgeous Italian waiter, what country am I in?). I have no memory of what we did for the rest of the evening.

Day 2:
Up promptly. Begin the 1.5 mile walk to the Harbour/Plas/Hidden Secret Base. May I state, for the record, that Gareth George Street is stunning despite its obvious newness and that I want a flat along it so that I can look at the pretty all day and walk down to the water whenever I want. Best of both worlds and all that.

Geeked the following: Millennium Centre! OMG! Huge! Stunning! In these stones horizons sing! And I don't remember what the Welsh means, but it was pretty too. OMG! They defaced the Torchwood Tower! Strawberries? Cas and I decide Jack will be pissed when he finds out. I wonder if they have legal documents somewhere that say they can't deface the Tower while Torchwood is filming? Get pictures anyway, despite the strawberries, the fork lift truck, and the men in bright jackets. Wander across the basin and under the bridge to the boardwalk. Door! Covered by wire fencing - I wonder how many mad fans have tried to break in? Wandered some more. Discovered how important Roald Dahl is to the area. Went to the Red Dragon to see the DW exhibit. Gods, we are such geeks. The pictures do it better justice than I can. Had lunch at Bosphorus, which anyone who has watched Boom Town will spot. Of course, David Tennant and RTD have eaten there too. Favourite watering hole in fact; pity they are all in other cities right now. Turkish food was wonderful, however. Wandered some more for ice cream (OMG school groups!) and then decided to catch the City Sightseeing Bus...twice. A whole history of the city I didn't know existed. Pity I can't remember any of it.

Had dinner at the hostel (I love hostel pubs, every one should have one). Went to bed early to brainstorm. There was very little brainstorming accomplished.

Day 3:
St. Fagan's. After some misdirection, caught the bus from Central Station to the museum. Easy once you figure out what stand/bus number it is. Spent the whole morning wandering around the western side of the park and exploring the village. (Cas, I have been reminded that the general store/bakery area was where they filmed Human Nature/Family of Blood, because I am STUPID and forgot). Bought fudge and other bad things. Gods, fudge. Had lunch at the cafe and then went out again to explore the castle. Or rather, country house. Pretty area, be nice to get married there. Met some very nice staff guides with Welsh accents. The Welsh are lovely and very proud people. They so deserve to be.

Caught the bus back mid-afternoon and then wandered around before settling on an early pub dinner. Caught our various trains back to the flat - sorry the midlands.

And that was pretty much it. Alas, no sightings of anyone. Wonder if Smithy has moved in yet? Cas and I did have some lovely Torchwood/Doctor Who conversations with various people. All in all, worth a trip back in future. With a car. Ha! With 11 hours to spare! Best if viewed on slideshow.

Is only slightly beyond unerved at the new Torchwood Children of Earth trailer.

9 more days!

I'm not entirely sure how I misplaced the fact that Eve Myles is pregnant, but it has suddenly occured to me that this means no new Torchwood filming until 2010. Which means series 4...God knows when.

windemere: (harem)
I have no idea what to do with the new trailer for Torchwood: Children of Earth.

I'm so confused.

We have to reverse the polarity. )

Big Bang Day: Afternoon Play - Torchwood
Torchwood: Lost Souls

"Somewhere out there in that chaos of darkness and light, of science and protons, of gods and stars and death... somewhere there's an answer."

Martha Jones, ex-time traveller and now working as a doctor for a UN task force, has been called to CERN where they're about to activate the Large Hadron Collider. Once activated, the Collider will fire beams of protons together recreating conditions a billionth of a second after the Big Bang - and potentially allowing the human race a greater insight into what the Universe is made of. But so much could go wrong - it could open a gateway to a parallel dimension, or create a black hole - and now voices from the past are calling out to people and scientists have started to disappear...

Where have the missing scientists gone? What is the secret of the glowing man? What is lurking in the underground tunnel? And do the dead ever really stay dead?

Lost Souls is a spin-off from the award-winning BBC Wales TV production Torchwood. It stars John Barrowman, Freema Agyeman, Eve Myles, Gareth David-Lloyd, Lucy Montgomery (of Titty Bang Bang) and Stephen Critchlow.

Starts at 2:15pm on September 10th on Radio 4. Unfortunately you can only get Radio 4 streamed if you life in the UK. And Real Player works on your computer.

OMG! My loves of physics and sci-fi all together! I hope the world doesn't end at 8:30am.

Gee, that title sounds familiar...


Really depressing episode. But now I'm trying to figure out the timeline (again) in my head. What year did Jack get Torchwood? Have I been taking the comment about Canary Wharf too literally?

Did Owen take a vacation?

On a note on next week's ep, don't scare me like that. Specially not after I've been reading spoilers.

::flails:: )

Also, I realized I didn't post in regards to last week's ep. ::shrugs:: That's about what I thought of it. Besides being weirded out. I am never going to be able to watch an old movie the same way again.
