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
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.
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.
@ murraygold Oh my God, they killed Kenny Rory...
@ edgarwright 'Scott Pilgrim' is trending in the USA and 'Spaced' trending in the UK. I hope I haven't died. x
@ DamonLindelof THE DARK TOWER is the Fermat's Last Theorem of film adaptations. At least that's what I whisper into my pillow when I cry myself to sleep.

@ ZacharyLevi So, just in case you were wondering, there is in fact a God, and he's apparently a HUGE fan of Jeffster! Who knew right?!
@ JoshSchwartz76 Decision by NBC to pick up CHUCK for a final season to complete the story was incredibly classy. A gift to fans who have been so loyal.
@ MillaJovovich i'm so sorry ppl, but aren't "hunters" big frogs? x
@ 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.
