While the world wonders where Torchwood can go after the dramatic Children of Earth mini-series, one man has a clear vision of the future of the Doctor Who spin-off. Luckily, that man is executive producer Russell T. Davies.

Talking to Torchwood Magazine, Davies said,

I could write you scene one of series four right now... I know exactly how to pick it up. I've got a shape in mind, and I've got stories. I know where you'd find Gwen and Rhys, and their baby, and Jack, and I know how you'd go forward with a new form of Torchwood.

That "new form," however, doesn't necessarily mean that a format for the next season has been decided upon, according to the creator:

If the BBC asked for another 13 one-part stories, that's what we'd do... I'm ready for anything, but I think it works well as one continuous story. But if the BBC decide they want 13 one-offs, I'll suddenly decide that's the best format in the world!
