Producer James Goss revealed: “Russell’s been wonderfully involved in the continuation of Torchwood. We came up with some characters and ideas and he very kindly, very politely said ‘Marvellous, but no. Howabout…?’. And that’s what lead to Jack and Gwen being joined by Mr Colchester (Paul Clayton), Ng (Alexandria Riley), Tyler (Jonny Green) and the enigmatic Orr (Sam Béart).”

He teased: “Who are they? What part do they have to play in the future of Torchwood? And can they save Cardiff from an invasion that’s already been lost?”

This new season of Torchwood will be released in three box sets, with the first due this August.

The episode titles for the first box set are are:

1: ‘Changes Everything’
2: ‘Aliens & Sex & Chips & Gravy’

The second and third volumes will follow in October and early 2018.
