Doctor Who News: It’s Spin Off Time!

Several years ago Torchwood was well taken off the air at the end of the third season. The show though is coming back for a fourth season and it’s international this time.

By that I mean it’s being co-produced by an American television network. Of the original group only two characters are announced/confirmed as returning, Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper.

Filling out Torchwood’s remaining cast will be American actors. According to both Topless Robot and news site Twitch two actors have been confirmed. 8 Mile star Mekhi Phifer will play a CIA agent, but that’s as much as we know about that.

Also joining the cast will be Spaceballs star Bill Pullman. Twitch reports that Pullman’s character has both a name and a small back plot. Oswald Jones, a convicted killer freed on a technicality. How he will fit in with the Torchwood team is not yet clear.

Torchwood: The New World will begin airing in July of 2011 and will air in America on Starz. It’s only been ordered for ten episodes. Pending on the success of the show will determine if it stays in America for more episodes.

Stay posted for more details as they come through.
