Torchwood 4

It’s been confirmed, Torchwood season 4 is go!
This makes me very happy.
It was looking decidedly unlikely that Torchwood would get comissioned for a fourth season after the very well received season 3 ended on the 10th of July 2009. The fact it’s taken quite so long (almost a full year) to get to the point where the BBC is comfortable enough in announcing the fourth season is a go is a good indication that a lot of backroom dealings have likely taken place to get to this point.

No matter. I’m just really pleased that Torchwood will be making a return to our screens.

It’s had a very impressive career as a show, first premiering on BBC3 for it’s first season, then moving to BBC2 for it’s second and shifting to BBC1 for it’s five night Children of Earth season 3. Now  we’re told that season four will “see storylines widen to include locations in the U.S. and around the world.”.

This show just keeps going from strength to strength and moving from primarily U.K. based stories to be more inclusive of the rest of the world is a natural progression. After all, Torchwood is a global organisation, so why not show some of the other operations from around the world.
Let’s also not forget that the show has very strong relations with Doctor Who. Could we see The Doctor , Amy (or whatever companion The Doctor has at that time) and the TARDIS  land in America for a cross-over? Who knows!
