Espenson is not a name you normally see associated with Torchwood – Davies, Barrowman, Myles…but you are probably familiar with that name already. Jane Espenson is no stranger to SF TV, having written for and produced a whole solar system of shows – Battlestar Galactica, Caprica, Warehouse 13, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, etc. Now she’s taking on a bit of a different beast – Torchwood – and she spoke with Blastr about the production. The fourth series will include 10 episodes, and she will write three of them. And the production style is very different for her – with the long lead time and short series, everything will be written before filming.
