Torchwood’s back – on BBC2 first

That second series of Torchwood has finally been commissioned. This time, it’ll air on BBC2 first.

The press release is full of ‘interesting’ quotes that sound slightly distant from reality:

Julian Bellamy, Controller of BBC Three, said: “Breaking all records on BBC Three is no mean feat and we’ve been proud to help build Torchwood into one of the most talked-about and eagerly-anticipated series of recent years.”

Jane Tranter said: “Torchwood is a modern and innovative drama that has truly captured the imagination of its audience, and we are very excited that there will be more of the adrenaline-fuelled, action-packed adventures of our team of Torchwood heroes.”

And then there’s

Russell T Davies said: “The whole team is bristling with ideas and we are delighted that Cardiff is going to be home to more monsters and mayhem.”

Gosh, RTD. You make it sound so… adult.
