Torchwood Season 3 – Longer and Shorter
Well, I guess all the upheavals at the end of the second season of Torchwood sure made fans curious about what’s going to happen next season. The fact is, to steal an award-winning word from the next executive producer of daddy-series Doctor Who, if you blink, you might miss it.
Season three, scheduled to air around January of next year, will consist of one long, continuous story written, at least in part, by creator/producer Russell T. Davies. That’s the good news.
The bad news is, this story will only run five episodes. Given the unpredictability of BBC-TV runtimes, that means as far as 2009 is concerned we’re probably only going to get about four and one-half hours of Torchwood.
Captain Jack, however, will be playing a prominent role in the last several parts of this season’s Doctor Who, as will Torchwood’s U.N.I.T.-affiliated Doctor Jones. As for the Captain’s appearances in the series of Who specials set for 2009… dare I say it… time will tell.
