The Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood has always been notoriously uneven, but it seemed like its truncated third season would dodge that bullet. After all, it's just one five-episode story, "Children Of Earth," airing over the course of a week. And early reports made it sound as though the whole shebang would be written by series creator Russell T. Davies. But there's some bad news on that score. Davies will write one episode, James Moran ("Sleeper") will write another, and the remaining three will be written by newcomer John Fay. Oh well.[Blogtor Who]
