TorchwoodIn an interview with Entertainment Weekly Torchwood creator & producer Russell T. Davies has confirmed there will be a web-based spin-off from the sci-fi series.

The ten episodes, each three minutes in length, will accompany Torchwood: Miracle Day. The possibility of a Torchwood spin-off was raised by writer Jane Espenson who teased Angel and Dollhouse actress Eliza Dushku will be starring. Torchwood: Web of Lies will be written by Espenson and Ryan Scott and is described as an “animated motion comics”.

“This is a hugely exciting innovation, a fully-scripted animated adventure with interactive elements, with fantastic voice talents – John Barrowman and Eve Myles reprise their roles as Jack and Gwen, alongside special guest star Eliza Dushku, and co-starring Bob Harris. The adventures will run in weekly installments, parallel with the event of Miracle Day, adding new clues, new insights, and new dangers, as everyone races to find out the truth behind the mysterious Miracle…” – Russell T. Davies

As yet it’s unclear whether the spin-off will be available to all internet users or will be restricted by country. Production on Torchwood: Miracle Day has now wrapped. It will premier on Starz and BBC One in July. You can view a new feature length trailer for the series here >>
