We caught up with Myles and Lyn after their packed-to-the-gills Torchwood panel to get more details on the upcoming "Children of Earth" - and their true feelings about their American fans. (Full transcript of the video is below, sorry for the sound quality.)
While most of us are still grieving for Owen and Tosh, there are new frontiers ahead. "The grief that the characters feel is very real," admitted Lyn, "but this is a brand new story." With a shorter run of just five episodes, he said, they were able to move into a different realm - one that's grander and more complex. "It's absolutely epic," added Myles.
Jack and Ianto step up to be a "massive ensemble team," Myles revealed. From the trailer they showed, it looks like everybody's favorite gay alien hunters will be twining tongues once more as well. Rhys also becomes part of the Torchwood team in this series, although the Weevil will not appear. "He's sunning it up in the Barbados," Myles told us, after also confessing (with a wink) that she and the alien prisoner had a torrid offscreen affair.
