Torchwood Series 4 gets a Title ‘The New World’

According to Hollywood Reporter the next series of Torchwood will have a subtitle of The New World. There was also a lot of information given out about the plot and tone of the new show.

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.”

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

Even though this is being touted as a reboot for a new audience I do like the idea of it taking the fact that Torchwood has been disbanded and is now almost a myth.  I just hope that given the premise that Gwen and Jack won’t feel a little like what they did with Mulder and Scully when they bought in the new agents on X-Files (we all know how well that worked out). I also thought given the global storyline and the reboot idea we might would return to a larger Torchwood like we had when the organisation was introduced in Doctor Who but if it’s anything like the second season and Children of Earth then I’ll still be checking it out.
