Yeah it really felt like they were laying foundation stones for a future Valeyard story.

Re: Matt Smith Dr Who

I just read that Torchwood will resume in the summer of 2011. In the US, it will be shown on Starz, a premium cable movie channel, and not on BBC America. I'm hoping I can get it on the Windsor CBC channel.

Re: Matt Smith Dr Who

The new 10 part international Torchwood sounds ace. Can't wait.

And still under BBC supervision - that's good. The Torchwood America rumours sounded absolutely crap - "We like your show, but couldn't Jack be straight?"

Re: Matt Smith Dr Who

As far as American tv has come, it's still significantly more homophobic than they'd like to admit. Everyone knows that gay characters are only ever best friends to straight main characters! You can't have the main character of a story not be hetero!! [sigh]

Barrowman famously was turned down for the lead role in Will and Grace because the producers thought he was too straight. Oh ironies of ironies.

Getting slightly back on track with DW and the next episode's guest star - James Corden, has got into a bizarre spat with Sir Patrick Stewart at an awards ceremony.

I think they both came across as quite childish. I agree it's quite rude to present awards with your hands in your pocket... but it's equally rude to publicly draw attention to another person's faux pas.

And once the initial shots were fired it seems to be a case of one-upmanship taking over. Corden got quite sharp, spiteful and hot-headed whilst Stewart tried (awkwardly and unsuccessfully IMHO), to try and mock him with humour.

One giant utterly needless cock fight.

Much as I respect Stewart as an actor, I do think he comes across as a bit patronising in interview. He was appearing in Waiting for Godot last year and whilst promoting the play on BBC's "The One Show", treated the presenters like infants when he assumed that they didn't understand that it was a comedy.

There were no winners in my book... utterly childish spat and they should both know better.

Easy for you to say - you won't have to start paying extra for a premium channel to get it! But, it's good to hear that The Face of Bo's career is continuing.

Re: Matt Smith Dr Who

I'm glad i took a chance and decided to read JJ's post in this thread. I have been avoiding it to avoid spoilers of Dr. Who.

I saw at Amazon that a season 4 existed for Torchwood, but hadn't come out yet, I gathered from other info it hadn't actually been filmed yet.

I'll have to buy it to see it anytime soon, I'm sure, so forgive my lack of sympathy about the pay channel.



I just wish it were a cable option in my area, and/or my area didn't get very iffy satellite service.

Re: Matt Smith Dr Who

What, your cable service doesn't offer Starz? You may have told me their name in the past, but what is it?

Re: Matt Smith Dr Who

Cable One, and I wasn't paying close enough attention (it's tricky to read-and-yet-not-read, to avoid spoilers). I thought it was a different channel you were talking about.

Torchwood will come out on StarZ? Cable One does indeed have that channel here.
