Long time to carry a flame for Torchwood

It'll soon be sci-fi season again. Primeval started a couple of weeks ago on ITV. I haven't got around to watching any of the first few episodes. They're stacked up, gathering dust on the full-to-bulging Tivo. But many of the original reviews suggest it's closer to the team-based Torchwood rather than Doctor Who.

David Tennant's Doctor Who's is due back on the small screen sometime in March, just after Primeval ends.

But back to Torchwood.

According to Podshock episode #67, John Barrowman (Torchwood's Captain Jack)was interviewed a week or so ago on BBC Radio 2, and explained that there will be a twelve month gap between the end of series one (whose finale went out on New Year’s Day) and the next series - which will not now be broadcast until 2008.

I agree that Primeval is very close to Torchwood (in fact I end up confusing the two on occasion) but it's not as good IMO. Maybe due to my liking all the characters in Torchwood and hating most of the Primeval ones. I am thoroughly liking it as a show though and hope it's picked up for further seasons.

As to Torchwood, it was mentioned that season 2 would not be aired until 2008, however, it has now been reported that it's back on schedule for October
