Following the dramatic events of Torchwood: Children of Earth, this episode we’re looking at the creative reaction and discussing what might happen next with Torchwood series 4, including a discussion of if there should even be a series 4 at all.
We briefly discuss feedback to our backdoor pilot episode, Radio Free Skaro Wednesday Cutaway: The Ballad of Jack and Ianto (See the comments on that post for an excellent follow up discussion).
After Torchwood: Children of Earth, we look at fan creative reactions to ‘the unhappy event’:
We also listen to a brief clip of Lloyd in the Void by Technicolour Chaos available in full from their MySpace and also on the soon to be released Trock On compilation album (see links in Trocking Out below).
We discuss various characters and whether we’d like to see them back in series 4: Official BBC character key.
We speculate about if there’ll be a series 4: Comic Mix reports that BBC America reported that Torchwood was picked up for series 4, as yet no one else has confirmed or denied this.
We quote small extracts from the Ausiello Files interview with Russell T Davies at EW.com about the involvement of Jack and if it’ll be a mini series.
We talk about other ideas for continuing Torchwood instead of a straight on present day series: Nat’s ideas on the subject, as previously posted on LiveJournal.
In episode 2 we’ll be discussing fandom’s reactions to the new Eleventh Doctor costume, Amy Pond, the Tardis exterior and the series 5 or series 1 naming controversy. There’ll also be more Time Lord Rock and plenty of other creative pursuits!
We play out with When Autons Attack by Turn Left, which is on the up coming Time Lord Rock compilation album Trock On available for pre-order from DFTBA records and from 6th of August from Amazon MP3 and soon after from iTunes.
Thanks to Georgia of Turn Left for kind permission to use this track. We recommend you also visit Georgia’s excellent Time Lord Rock News, a fantastic source of information on new trock songs, bands and releases.
