Torchwood remains in limbo, admits Russell T Davies, although the axe hasn't swung on the show.

First order of business: have you caught up with episode one of Wizards Vs Aliens yet? The new show, from Russell T Davies and Phil Ford, arrived on CBBC yesterday, and you can catch up with it on BBC iPlayer now. It's well worth it, and it's on again later (when we'll have our review of the first story).

Russell T Davies has been doing one or two interviews to promote the show. Yesterday, we reported on his comments regarding his ongoing non-involvement with Doctor Who. And, in an interview with Graham Norton, he's given a Torchwood update too.

Davies moved to the US to make Torchwood: Miracle Day, a show that did decent ratings, but got a mixed response. Personal issues have meant Davies lives back in the UK now, and he admitted to Norton that it's left the show in "limbo".

"I would have carried on if circumstances hadn't brought me back to this country", he admitted. "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 if it'll be old news to the BBC then".

He affirmed that the show hadn't been cancelled, and said it's one of "those shows can come back in ten or 20 years time". However, Torchwood appears to be on nobody's immediate agenda at the moment.

Here's the interview over at the BBC (with thanks to Bleeding Cool for the heads up). The bit about Torchwood is right at the end.
