Torchwood Magazine #17

Issue #17 of the official Torchwood Magazine was released last Thursday, including a 10-page interview with Russell T Davies, interviews with Gareth David-Lloyd (Ianto Jones) and Paul Chequer (Eugene from 'Random Shoes'), how the 456 was created, Part 3 of comic-strip 'Broken', and much more. Click the cover image to enlarge.
The latest 100-page issue of Torchwood magazine gets under the skin of the five-night television spectacular, kicking things off with a sensational interview over ten pages with the show’s creator Russell T Davies. Check out this page for all the information on the new issue, including our farewell to Ianto (right), stunning behind-the-scenes features, and lots more!

Award-winning comic book writer and artist Nick Abadzis makes his Torchwood magazine debut in the latest issue. The author of the acclaimed graphic novel Laika writes part three of Broken, in which Gwen is plagued by ghosts of Torchwood past, with illustrations by Paul Grist.

IANTO JONES 1983-2009
Seeing Ianto Jones die in Captain Jack’s arms on Day Four of Children of Earth was a moment that many Torchwood fans will never forget. In the latest issue of Torchwood magazine, we pay tribute to the coffee boy made good, and Gareth David-Lloyd shares his thoughts about Ianto’s dramatic exit from the show.

“I could write you scene one of season four right now.”
So says Russell T Davies in a comprehensive interview in the latest issue of Torchwood magazine. We’d been trying to pin Davies down for over a year, and having got his attention, it wasn’t an opportunity we were ever going to approach lightly. With no stone left uncovered, we grill the man who invented Torchwood on why Ianto had to die, what he thinks about politics, and what could be next for the show.

Torchwood magazine brings you a sensational line-up of behind-the-scenes coverage of Children of Earth in the latest issue, including a close-up account of the making of the 456. Russell T Davies’ brief, as outlined by the script, was to make “a huge, three-headed, eyeless beast, with raw, wet skin, like its flesh has been stripped.” Find out how Millennium FX went about meeting the challenge, with exclusive photography from their workshop and the Floor 13 set.

Torchwood magazine continues to look back at the trailblazing first series of the show in the latest issue. Remember when Torchwood ‘fan’ Eugene Jones found himself invisible and where he always wanted to be: sitting alongside Gwen Cooper in the Torchwood SUV? We revisit Random Shoes, first aired way back in December 2006, in a comprehensive episode guide. Plus, we talk to actor Paul Chequer, who guest starred in the episode as the naive but lovable Eugene.

Torchwood Magazine #17 is available across the UK for £4.99.

Murray Asked to Stay

The Doctor Who special San Diego Comic Con panel took place last week and Murray Gold, Doctor Who's music composer from 2005, was there in the audience - the panel (David Tennant, Russell T Davies, Julie Gardner and Euros Lyn) even pointed him out.

Apparently the person who sat next to Murray asked him whether he will be composing the music for Series 5, following rumours that he was stepping down after the 2009 specials. Murray's answer was that he had been asked to stay on.

The exact quote from the person next to Murray is...
"I was lucky to sit by Murray at the Doctor Who panel @ Comic Con. I asked him if it was true that he was leaving the show. He replied that he's been asked to stay on. He's a very nice guy. The show would be immensely fortunate to have him stay with it."

Do you think Murray will stay? Do you want him to stay?

Desperate Barrowman Housewife?

John Barrowman - otherwise known as Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who and Torchwood - has revealed recently on Chris Moyles Radio 1 breakfast programme that he's in discussions to star in the US hit TV show Desperate Housewives. John said, "I'm off to Los Angeles on Sunday again. I probably shouldn't say this but I've got a meeting with the execs of Desperate Housewives - can you believe it, I'm going to be a Desperate Housewife!"

The Chris Moyles show producer Aled Haydn Jones asked if he could come with him to Los Angeles, John joked, "You can come and be my lover, Aled!" Moyles wasn't having any of it, and instead asked if he could come and be his "roly-poly gardener". Barrowman replied: "You can be the roly-poly gardener or the handyman with the big butt crack!"
