More on Torchwood
Outpost Gallifrey, in their write-up of the forthcoming "Torchwood," included a new little tidbit that I'd not come across before. Apparently, PJ Hammond, creator of the underrated (and little seen in the US) genre series "Sapphire and Steel" has been confirmed as a writer for the series. Seems an obvious choice in retrospect, but not one I had considered. There's some strange poetry in that choice, too, as according to IMDB Hammond apparently got his start as a writer on the series "Dixon of Dock Green," which (if I'm not mistaken) was the show from whose set the police box prop that was to become the TARDIS was originally borrowed, for the first episode of "Doctor Who."
