Torchwood gets ready for fourth series

Previously recorded in Cardiff, the new show will be shot in the US and other countries.

The Doctor Who spin-off show, Torchwood, will return in a fourth series, the BBC confirmed on Tuesday.

The 10-part series, jointly funded by BBC Wales, BBC Worldwide and the US cable network Starz Entertainment, will see John Barrowman and Eve Myles continue as Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.

Previously recorded in Cardiff, the new show will be shot in the US and other countries.

The science-fiction drama was first aired on BBC Three in 2006, and the second series was broadcast in 2008 on BBC Two.

The five-part third series, Children of Earth, was telecast on consecutive nights on BBC One in July 2009.

Torchwood creator and former Doctor Who head writer, Russell T Davies, will lead a team of writers to create the new show.
