Crisis averted. For now. Sorta. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox has passed on developing a U.S. version of the U.K.'s Doctor Who spinoff, Torchwood.
You may remember me being concerned about this when the news first broke back in January, although I thought it might have some potential I was generally against the idea. Turns out, even though Fox passed, U.S. Torchwood is still a go. "We are currently in discussion with several interested networks,” said BBC Worldwide. Executive VP of Programming and Production, Jane Tranter added, "It's very much ongoing and very much alive."
So the bad news is, Torchwood USA could still happen, but you must consider the good news - Fox won't be doing it. Why is this good news? Because Fox tends to ruin good things. *cough*Sarah Connor Chronicles*cough* That's assuming this version will be good, which I'm still highly doubtful of, but you never know. Remember, Russel T. Davies and Julie Gardner are on board.
So what do you think? Have you warmed to the idea since January? I'm with a commenter from the last time we discussed this, "We all speak English here. Just put the original on."
