Tweets Of The Week

Russell T Davies on Twitter? A dream Sherlock / Doctor Who crossover? Wil Wheaton in a fez? It can only be Tweets Of The Week

The Golden Globes might be dominating the headlines this morning but, as every über-geek knows, the big news this week is that Torchwood: Miracle Day has officially started shooting in the US of A. How do we know? Thanks to the friendly folk at @ BBC_Torchwood of course, who have been tweeting enough tantalising snippets from the set to whip up a fanboy/girl frenzy.

They haven’t let slip too much, but from their tweets so far we know that an early scene featuring former ER star Mekhi Phifer takes place in a hospital and that Captain Jack will be getting a fabulous new outfit. Before arming yourself with a pitchfork and picketing the offices of Starz, however, bear in mind that Jack’s coat will return – albeit in a stylish new design.

Best of all though was this unexpected info bubble:

@ BBC_Torchwood Russell is now learning how to tweet, it's quite amusing.

RTD on Twitter? We can’t wait...

@ simonpegg I am not working with @ ElizaDushku in Vancouver which is a shame as Faith was always my favourite slayer. Mean, sure but very misunderstood.
