Disturbing news dashes hopes of seeing more Torchwood anytime soon

Have you been wondering why there hasn't been a new season of Torchwood announced yet? Do you believe the Doctor Who spinoff has been canceled? Well, here's what's really going on!

In an interview on the BBC's The Graham Norton Show, former Doctor Who showrunner and creator of Torchwood Russell T Davies has revealed the fate of Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and company, saying that the sci-fi series hasn't been canceled but that ''it's in a nice limbo'':

"I loved making it [in the States], and I would have carried on if circumstances hadn't brought me back to this country, so it's kind of in limbo for me at the moment.

"I'm not working on it at the moment. I'm only working on Wizards vs Aliens — when I get back to work one day, I don't know, it'll be old news to the BBC then! It's not officially cancelled... It's in a nice limbo where it can stew for a while — those shows can come back in ten, twenty years time."

The last (and very mediocre) season of Torchwood, called Miracle Day, aired last summer on Starz and the BBC since it was co-produced by both networks.

So. Right. Ten to 20 years from now.

Will we see Gwen (Eve Myles) and Rhys' (Kai Owen) daughter Anwen as the next generation of Torchwood agent? If that's the case, then we can all forget about seeing Captain Jack again even though the character's immortal. Barrowman may need a lot of botox to pull it off. Or a lot of computer special effects to make him look roughly the same way he looks now.

What do you think of Davies' (non) answer concerning the fate of Torchwood?
