Fox has pulled out of this project which was to have produced 13 episodes. There is still the possibility of getting another US channel to take Fox's place. Could SyFy step up?

What, no Fox better not ruin Torchwood by making a us version. I mean sure captian jack harkness is american, but the show that made it(Doctor Who) is UK so one would believe that its spin-off should be UK also. Unless they plan to of corse make a American version of Doctor Who. And if they do plan to they are going to need all the luck in the world to pull it off.

Fox has pulled out of a Torchwood project and they already made a lousy version of Dr. Who several years ago. Apparently Russell Davies is writng scripts for the British Torchwood and John Barrowman is willing to be on board. Now it's just up to BBC.

I can't imagine an American version of either Dr Who or Torchwood. They are just too quirky for our friends across 'The Pond'! Who on Earth could play such odd but lovable characters? All they would be bothered with would be finding some beautiful actors!

But they've ALREADY FILMED a new season of Torchwood IN AMERICA. It's been running on Starz since July. The cast still includes John Barrowman and Eve Miles but now also has American actors. The British versions of Torchwood all ran here on BBC America and were quite popular. There was an American version of Dr. Who filmed here by Fox but the show was a disaster and is not considered part of the Who franchise. The only good thing about that attempt was that it probably helped to revive the franchise in the UK.
