Many ‘Torchwood’ fans were disappointed with how ‘Torchwood: Miracle Day’ ended. Their dissatisfaction must have gotten back to the actors as Eve Myles, who plays Gwen Cooper in the series, has said that another ‘Torchwood’ project should occur to give fans closure.
In an interview with Cult Box, Myles talked about the future of ‘Torchwood.’ Myles confesses that she loves playing Gwen and wouldn’t have a second thought about participating in another season of the series. Although nothing has been said about filming this year, she does hold out hope for something in 2013. If a series wouldn’t be possible, then at least a movie should be in the works, if for any other reason, to give fans the closure they deserve:
“As far as I know at the moment, everything’s still very much on hold. Russell [T Davies] has things happening in his personal life. John [Barrowman] is very much on the same page as me, in that if and when they need us, they can just pick the phone up and we will be there before they’ve even put the phone down, because it’s something we love doing. Nothing’s going to happen in 2012, I know that much for sure. But who knows what will happen in 2013. Maybe a movie, to kinda draw a line under it”
“That’s the thing about Torchwood, every series we’ve changed our format. We’ve always had a gap in between, so fingers crossed, because we’ve got such an outstanding loyal fan base. They deserve Torchwood to go ahead with something else to draw a line under it, for the fans to have a bit of closure.”
If another series were to film, Myles would like to see the show be brought back to Cardiff Wales. “That’s where it was born,” she says, “and maybe it’d be nice to end it there. There’s nothing wrong with Cardiff!”
The last word about the series returning was from Starz CEO Chris Albrecht. He told EW that the future of the show lies with Russell T. Davies and if it was near the top of his “to do list” it would happen. As many already know, Davies has taken a bit of a hiatus to care for his ailing partner and is finishing up a commitment towards a new series called ‘Aliens vs. Wizards.’ Also, the Starz ‘Torchwood: Miracle Day’ Facebook page was just recently taken down.
I agree with Myles and think that there should be some closure to the series. If another season of ‘Torchwood’ were to occur, many concessions would have to be made to bring it back to its days of glory. Unfortunately, they can’t bring back Ianto (as much as many of you would love) nor can it pretend that ‘Miracle Day’ never occurred (as much as many of you would also love). If a full season is not possible, then definitely a 2 hour movie or miniseries should be made.
What do you think? Would you like to see another season or movie of ‘Torchwood to wrap things up?
