I’m pleased that Starz picked up Torchwood. I watched the show simply because it was the Doctor Who spin-off franchise. I watched Children of Earth because it was horrible, good and horribly good. Torchwood, as the BBC had it, was doomed by the time Children of Earth had finished though.
It’s certainly true that the BBC is involved with Torchwood: The New World. In fact, RTD will be at the helm. However, this promo poster makes it all to clear which broadcaster has the rights to associate itself with the series.
