The Creepy Kids Are Coming, Be Warned
TWoP: How was it filming a block of five episodes all tied together instead of more stand alone episodes?
Myles: I've always championed from the first TV series. I thought the stories that work the best were the stories that they did in two or three episodes. They were stronger. They didn't have a beginning middle and end in 40 minutes. They were inundated with character more that got padded out. Give an actor more to do. I championed it all along on the second series. I think Owen had [episodes] six, seven and eight [last season] that were kind of one particular story about his death. I thought that was the strongest part cause you get the time to do it. I think having this one epic adventure defy excellence is truly remarkable.
TWoP: I'm not a huge fan of to-be-continued episodes, because I'm impatient, but I do love seeing long stories play out.
Myles: I think you'll really enjoy this one. It's very different to what you've seen in the past. It has a very dark theme to it. But there's also an awful lot of Torchwood humor fitted in as well. So I think you'll really, really enjoy it.
TWoP: Do you have a break before the fourth season?
Myles: It's far too early to predict the fourth series at the moment.
TWoP: OK. I'm just ignoring any possibility that it won't go on.
Myles: It's too early to predict the fourth one. If there is that would be great. We'll see how the next one does.
TWoP: So what's next on your plate?
Myles: There's lots of things going on at the moment. I'm desperate to get back to the theatre. As it goes it's kind of there's a lot of TV and films at the moment. There's a lot of exciting things.
TWoP: So we'll be seeing you in lots of places.
Myles: Yes. Yes you will. You'll be sick of my sight.
Myles: I'm absolutely enthralled that it's so well received out here. None of us expected it and it's kind of great in a way cause we've done our job and we just give it to you now. We just want you to enjoy it.
Next up, Euros
TWoP: I'm very excited that you're moving over to Torchwood. How did that come about?
Euros Lyn: I've worked on Doctor Who and Julie Gardener, one of the execs invited me out for a drink one night and said 'Listen. We've got this plum, Torchwood series three, we want to make it five episodes. One story and one director. Would you be interested?' And I was like, 'Oh my.' Cause that sounds like so much work. It's so much work. Five hours of TV in one go. That was the thing that scared me the most. Would I be able to cope with it? The series itself I've been a big fan of and it's set in my hometown of Cardiff. It's got fantastic actors like John Barrowman and all those things really made me excited about doing it. It's just a huge amount of work...
