[22.40 - French Time] Tonight on BBC News, live from Los Angeles (at 13.30 local time), Torchwood creator and former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T. Davies talked about the announced series four of Torchwood. Those 10 new episodes are co-produced by US premium channel Starz Entertainment.

Davies told a (very) little more about the "international flavour" of series four's storylines by explaining that though Torchwood team will be taken to America and some other countries, the show will still be filmed in Wales. He added jokingly that sometimes when he describes this international aspect it sounds like a 60s TV series but the new series will still focus on strong human stories (« It's still about people, really. »)

He confirmed the returns of John Barrowman and Eve Myles, and announced some new UK signings plus American cast members as well. According to him the idea is to have a "culture clash" between Welsh and US characters.

Davies said that Torchwood Series four will be the first drama from BBC Worldwide Productions and that the deal with Starz is "a new way of funding drama".
