News TORCHWOOD IS DEAD according to BBC

Torchwood is DEAD!
According to the BBC

It’s not the best news to wake up to first thing in the morning, but in an article by Ryan Ingram for About Spinoff Online, it’s exactly what was said by the man we know as Captain Jack Harkness, John Barrowman, when asked about the show’s return by fans at the San Diego Comic Con recently.

“I was gutted,” Barrowman continued, “because I know there’s a huge audience out there for it. But it’s not my call. But having said that, it’s all up to you guys in a way.”

Fans were obviously gutted as are we.  But are we going to give up on a show that has brought us such talent as John Barrowman, Gareth David-Lloyd, Kai Owen, Eve Myles, Naoko Mori, Burn Gorman and Indira Varma? 

We can still write to the BBC with letters and emails and tell them we need this show back.  We’ve already signed a growing petition with #SAVETORCHWOOD campaign but it needs more signatures and more support behind it.

Doctor Who had a hiatus of many years before it returned and then it came back and blew us away with the fantastic sets and the characters, and the return of the Doctor and his TARDIS. 

Torchwood HAS to come back, we just have to have faith. 

It saddens me that slowly we’re losing the shows that we love and not because the cast aren’t interested, but in the fact that it’s all down to the television company.  Something has to change.
