Tweets Of The Week

A Torchwood web spin-off, renewal/cancellation reactions from the stars of sci-fi TV and much, much more in this bumper Tweets Of The Week

@ BBC_Torchwood Russell's got spot right above "THE DOCTOR", hilarious and coincidental. Post Production, we're getting close!

A lot has happened around the globe since we last brought you tweets of the week, America executed the world’s most wanted man, a country we didn’t even know was part of Europe won the Eurovision Song Contest and the interweb just about collapsed on itself in anticipation of Neil Gaiman’s episode of Doctor Who.

But the thing that got us most excited – this little ditty which seems to have slipped a lot of people (including us, till now) by – Torchwood is getting a web spinoff. Not only that but Jane Espenson is involved and has heavily hinted Eliza Dushku will star.

@ JaneEspenson There is going to be Torchwood web content. So in addition to #TorchwoodMiracleDay there is #TorchwoodWebOfLies . Enjoy all the TW brands!

We have faith in Torchwood: Web of Lies. #hint

It's tru; there's an echo of my past work in #Torchwood : Web of Lies. (I know you already solved my little puzzle, but this is fun.)

Exciting, no? Speaking of Torchwood we now know that Miracle Day has wrapped shooting according to Twitter:

@ BBC_Torchwood That's a WRAP on John, Eve, Mekhi, Alexa, Bill, and Lauren! 2nd Unit night shoots then... until next season. Cross your fingers!

And that the first episode is amazing according to, er, Kai Owen:

@ KaiKaiOwen Ok, so I've just got back from watching the first episode of 'Torchwood- Miracle Day' and it was amazing, it's the best yet.

@ OldRoberts953 Weird hangover fact: Russell Davies has NEVER had a headache. I told a neurologist who said 'We really want that brain when available.'

@ jamesmoran That female synth-announcer at King's Cross totally sounds like GlaDOS. I worry every time I go through there.

@ mishacollins Some friends are making a light-hearted, fun-loving comedy. This behind-the-scenes image really captures the tone:

@ WilliamShatner So if 2 actors played Capt Kirk does that mean there are 5 or 6 Captains? Chris Pine is part of The Captain's project so I count 6 MBB #CAPT

@ charltonbrooker I mean, when I was six, Star Wars was AMAZING. But then everyone went on and bloody on about it for the next 34 years.

And Attack of the Clones was better than Return of the Jedi.
