After an Arrow press conference, John Barrowman, the star of Doctor Who spin-off Torchwood, said that he, Russell T. Davies, Julie Gardner, and potentially the whole Torchwood crew plan to record Torchwood radio plays.
“I do know that we’re doing three or four radio plays for the BBC for ‘Torchwood. My sister and I are discussing the possibility of writing one of them and whether or not that leads to something [on TV] … But I’m full-time with ‘Arrow’ now. It’s not a question of me not wanting to do it, it’s a question of the BBC wanting to do it or others wanting to do ‘Torchwood.’ I know the fans are out there so I think they’d be silly not to.”
