Goodbye Mr Chibs

Torchwood’s head writer and producer Chris Chibnall moves to a new show

Digital Spy is reporting that Torchwood writer/producer Chris Chibnall has a new job – as the showrunner on a British version of the hit US show, Law and Order.

ITV has ordered 13 episodes of the show from production company Kudos, who are behind such Beeb hits as Spooks and Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes. The show will be called Law and Order: London, which doesn’t sound a million miles from CSI: Cardiff (as joked about in the pilot episode of Torchwood).

Quite what this means for the future of Torchwood is as yet unclear.
