Torchwood Series Four - Subtitle Revealed!

Torchwood: The New World - Summer 2011


Starz' "Torchwood" reboot will be titled "Torchwood: The New World" and creator Russell T Davies gave some insight into the storyline.

The new story will follow a CIA agent (Rex) and analyst (Ester) who tackle an alien-related global issue. Torchwood, having been destroyed and disbanded, is "like a legend now ... it's like something that's ceased to exist and is now spoken of only in whispers." Soon, Rex and Ester are on the run and are seeking out the help of Captain Jack and Gwen.

"The two teams coming together is a big part of the story -- are they friends or enemies? There's a lot of sparks and excitement."

"We definitely have a really big story to tell," added executive producer Julie Gardner. "It's absolutely rebooted to welcome in a new audience." (Hear that "reboot" haters? She said "reboot." Reboot! Reboot!).

The ten episodes will be very fast paced, telling a self-contained story with the miniseries "Children of Earth" being used as a template.

Being on Starz, the show could potentially take advantage of looser standards for nudity and violence.

"I've always had loose standards and practices," Davies said. "If the story demands intimacy or savagery, we will go there absolutely ... [but] there's nothing better than a great big global thriller that stops for a sex scene -- it's probably hard to make that happen in a thriller."

In 1986 and at the age of 16, Simm went to the Blackpool & The Flyde College in Lytham St Annes for three years and starred in Guys & Dolls and West Side Story. However, he soon decided that musical theatre didn't interest him, so he joined an amateur dramatic group and honed his skills in his spare time, playing the title roles in Billy Liar and Amadeus to great local acclaim. He then moved to London and attended the Drama Centre London at the age of 19, where he studied the Stanislavski School of Acting, and graduated in 1992.

Simm also played lead guitar on a few of McCulloch's solo live shows, including one at Wembley arena as main support to Coldplay. Magic Alex released one album, Dated and Sexist, before splitting in 2005.

TV work includes; 1992 - T.V. debut in Rumpole of the Bailey, bit parts in The Bill, Heartbeat, The Locksmith, two series of BBC comedy Men of the World before playing a murderer in Chiller. 1995 - His breakthrough came in classic Manchester based drama Cracker, where he played troubled teenanger Bill Preece. This also starred future Time Lord Christopher Eccleston. He also made his feature film debut in Boston Kickout beating the late Dennis Hopper to the Best Actor award at the Valencia Film Festival. Two series of The Lakes followed in 1997 & 1999.

In 2005, he took on the role of Sam Tyler in the now cult 'Life On Mars' opposite Phillip Glenister's Gene Hunt, which ran for two series and spawning a sequal 'Ashes To Ashes'.

Johnny Depp as The Doctor in Movie??


According to tor.com, Johnny Depp is to portray our much loved Time Lord The Doctor, in a movie version to be released in 2012! The script has supposedly been written by Russsell T Davies.

The rumour of an American movie adaptation of the classic British sci-fi series was originally raised when Russell T. Davies and show producer Julie Gardner announced their departure from the BBC revival of the show for Los Angeles in 2008 in order to develop projects for BBC America. Though both were mum on the idea of adapting Doctor Who for American audiences, it was eventually revealed that Torchwood was undergoing that very process.

This would be so wrong! As much as I am a fan of JD, an American can not and should not be allowed to take away the Britishness of our beloved Doctor! It would be a travesty beyond imagination!! NO! NO! NO! NO! So obviously an internet scam jokey thing!

Inside The Doctor's new home... and there's more room than the Tardis

New acquisition: Doctor who star Matt Smith has purchased this two-bedroom apartment in North London, and like the Tardis, from the outside looks can be deceivingNew acquisition: Doctor who star Matt Smith has purchased this two-bedroom apartment in North London, and like the Tardis, from the outside looks can be deceiving


He famously travels in a blue police box with more space inside than outside.

So when it came to buying a new home it’s no surprise Doctor Who star Matt Smith needed a pad with the right dimensions.

From the outside, his flat looks like a church. But just like the Tardis, appearances can be deceptive. The narrow windows give no clue to the scale inside. The two-bedroom apartment has a 31ft lounge and a triple-height vaulted ceiling.

It is the 27-year-old’s first property purchase since he became the 11th and youngest-ever actor to play the Doctor. The North London flat is being sold by hip-hop star DJ Yoda – real name Duncan Beiny – who accepted an offer above the £775,000 asking price. Estate agents call it a ‘magnificent property’ boasting ‘beautiful stained-glass windows’.

Infrared Battle: Remote Control Daleks

Doctor Who: Infrared Battle: Remote Control Dalek: Red Dalek Drone (Product Image) DroneDoctor Who: Infrared Battle: Remote Control Dalek: Blue Dalek Strategist (Product Image) Strategist


Many Years ago, the Daleks sent out thousands of egg-shaped Progenitors containing the genetic coding of the race, so that new Daleks could be created whenever necessary. One of these Progenitors was found in war-torn England during the Second World War and transported to a Dalek ship.

However, because the Daleks that found it had been genetically modified by their creator Davros, using his own DNA, the Progenitor did not acknowledge them as pure Daleks, until the Doctor identified them as such and the Progenitor created a new race of powerful Daleks as a result. Amongst these Daleks were the Red Drones and Blue Strategists.

This fully functional radio controlled Dalek has full 360 degree movement control and a built-in infrared combat system which allows you to use two Daleks to battle against each other. Features also include flashing lights, speech a poseable gun and arm. Infrared battle with two Daleks requires two Daleks of different control frequencies (27 MHz & 40 MHz).

Two to collect; One Dalek supplied.

Requires 6 x AAA batteries.

Also nominated are: Karen Gillan, Eve Myles for Best Television Actress, Bernard Cribbins has been nominated for Best Supporting Actor, ALex Kingston is nominated as Best Special Guest against Leonard Nimoy in Fringe. For Best Story award are 'The End Of Time' and Torchwood's 'Children Of Time' are up against American shows Lost, Smallville and Fringe.

Eccleston "wasn't comfortable" on 'Who'

The Ninth Doctor from Doctor WhoChristopher Eccleston has revealed that he left Doctor Who because he was unhappy with the working environment.

Eccleston joined the show when it was rebooted in 2005 but left after one series.

In an interview with the Radio Times, the actor explained that he "wasn't comfortable" on the programme and added: "I think it's more important to be your own man than be successful, so I left."

He continued: "I was open-minded but I decided after my experience on the first series that I didn't want to do any more. I didn't enjoy the environment and the culture that we, the cast and crew, had to work in. I thought if I stay in this job, I'm going to have to blind myself to certain things that I thought were wrong."

However, Eccleston explained that he is proud of his time on the show and claimed that "the most important thing" is that he was able to play The Doctor.

"I really feel that because it kind of broke the mould and it helped to reinvent it," he said. "I'm very proud of it."

Eccleston will appear as John Lennon in BBC Four drama Lennon Naked later this month. By
