Exclusive: Eve Myles chats to us about ‘Torchwood’ return plans

Posted Filed under

Broadchurch star Eve Myles has discussed the rumours about Torchwood returning for a number of new radio plays.

Torchwood co-star John Barrowman revealed the news last month, adding that there was a possibility it could lead to something on TV too.

Speaking exclusively to CultBox, Myles confirmed: “There’s been talks about it for a while, but I’ll believe it when it lands on the desk really, and I’ll see about it then. I certainly wouldn’t turn it down. Anything with Torchwood is something I’d love to do.”

The Doctor Who spin-off was last seen on TV in 2011’s US co-production, Torchwood: Miracle Day. Four audio books and a novel, ‘Exodus Code’, were released in 2012.

Asked if she finds the show’s extended hiatus frustrating, Myles commented: “Well, I’ve kind of got past the frustration now. I think it’s more frustrating for the fans. It’s so damn popular, and the fans are still screaming for more, all over the world whenever I do signings and make appearances and talk about the show.”

The actress continued: “It’s as popular now as it’s ever been. That’s what’s frustrating about it. The fans want more, that’s the catalyst; that’s where the frustration comes from. The fan-base are the most loyal fan-base in the world, and have been since day one.”

She added: “So we’ll see what happens. If I get a call to come back, I’ll be there, and I’ll be doing it for the fans as well as Russell T Davies. I’d love to be able to put an announcement out tomorrow saying we got a Season 5, and that would be thanks to the fans, because they’ve not stopped plugging it for us.”
