Speaking on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show to promote his new series Wizards Vs Aliens, former Doctor Who and The Sarah Jane Adventures showrunner Russell T Davies gave an update on the future of Torchwood.

“I loved making it over there [in the US], and I would have carried on if circumstances hadn’t brought me back to this country, so it’s kind of in limbo for me at the moment,” said Davies.

“I’m not working on it at the moment. I’m only working on Wizards Vs Aliens. When I get back to work one day, I don’t know, it’ll be old news to the BBC!

“It’s not officially [cancelled]. It’s in a nice limbo where it can stew – those shows can come back in ten, 20 years time.”

Wizards Vs Aliens is airing from 29 October 2012 on CBBC.
