    I think its a bad idea. And there is a rumor if it works they would use it as a backdoor pilot for an American version of Doctor Who...which we already know how that will turn out because they tried once and failed...No offense to Paul McGann who actually a fantastic Doctor (his Big Finish audio dramas show that), he was just given a terrible script to work with.

      I'd give it a shot if it shows up, but I'm generally not a fan of copycat shows/stories/etc. They would absolutely need something new, very different from the real Torchwood. And they need to do it really well. I don't know that Fox has the heart for it.

      The original was so good, it'll be hard to do.

        If it were the American Branch of the Torchwood Institute and shared the same history and Doctor it might work, treat it more like an American spinoff.
        The fountain of youth really is in Florida... thats why they built Walt Disney World where they did.

          Americans would flip over Mr. Harkness' dating proclivities and they'd edit it out, affectively immasculating the entire series. If they kept it in? If they had open minds? Sure, I'd give a go.

            Yeah, that was part of the show that I liked a lot and I agree with you that Fox (especially) would not have the nerve to keep that edge. Torchwood wasn't stuffy, and that was part of its appeal. I liked that it wasn't afraid.

              I wouldn't mind if they just simulcasted the next season on Fox. It would be a whole lot better than Fox possibly ruining a great show.

                Never happen...if it's a good show Fox will cancel it.
