Torchwood, the popular Doctor Who spin-off (and anagram), will return for a third season, according to the BBC. Characters played by series regulars Burn Gorman and Naoko Mori died during the second season finale -- the last, dark touch on a year that saw the series grow more gritty and intense.
John Barrowman (Captain Jack Harkness) is confirmed to return for the third run. But, there's no certain word yet on whether executive producer Russell T. Davies will be back. Davies is already stepping aside from his Doctor Who captaincy -- handing the wheel over to Steven Moffat in 2009. While his supervision of Torchwood has been more distant, he has yet to announce if he's leaving the sci-fi realm completely.
