When the new fourth series of “Torchwood” is completed, creator and producer Russell T. Davies says he may walk away from the show.
Davies tells the BBC News that once this season is done, he is looking to move on to other projects.
“It’s interesting as to how long I can stay in the science fiction world,” he said. “Personally I think I’m coming to the end of it now and I’ve saved the world and blown up the world too many times.”
Davies added that he hopes to leave the series in “rude health” for other writers to take over.
“It’s time to write something just where people talk in kitchens, at least for me,” he insisted. “But I hope we literally leave the franchise in a very strong position [so] that other writers come in and take it over.”
However, he admitted that it had been “brilliant” to return to the show for potentially the final time.
“In a way for me, Torchwood never went away because it always lives in my head,” he explained. “Eve Myles’s character Gwen Cooper and obviously Captain Jack, played by John Barrowman, it’s their fourth year of stories now. It’s kind of like they have become modern legends. I love that.”
In the same interview, Davies confirmed that William Thomas and Sharon Morgan will reprise their roles as Gwen’s parents in the fourth season.
