Eve Myles Talks Torchwood: The Movie And Doctor Who At 50

Eve Myles, Torchwood’s very own Gwen Cooper has been chatting to the guy’s over at Cultbox on all thing’s Torchwood and Doctor Who. Myles has fond memories of working on the Doctor Who spin off show, penned by former Doctor Who head honcho Russell T Davies. It also seem’s that she’d jump at the chance to star in a Torchwood Movie if the opportunity arose and feel’s that the show may yet still have a future:

“We didn’t come back for the fifth series; it’s still there – it’s still
bubbling away. If it has ended in Hollywood, well, then we came from
BBC Three to BBC Two to BBC One to Hollywood – that’s a drama in itself.
Wonderful experience, wonderful memories.”

On whether the bubbling away would reach boiling point any time soon, she commented:

“No. But whatever Russell brings to me, I appreciate. When he’s ready,
if he is ever ready, then he’s got people who love and adore it just as
much as he does. ” 

When the movie subject was raised, Myles was enthusiastic on whether she would be involved, should a movie project be given the green light:

“I’d love it, love it. That is the clean stop. It would be great if it
did go out with a great bang, as it were, and we got our nice little
movie. But who knows? It’s one of those things – it’s a creature that
changes format every time it comes back. It might come back as a
Christmas special, you don’t know. It could happen now or it could
happen in twenty years time. If it pops its little head up again, I’m
sure we’ll be back.” 

Of course, nowadays, in any form of interview with anyone who has ever appeared on Doctor Who itself has to be asked the obligatory ‘are you in the 50th anniversary episode?’ question:

“No. No, there’s never been a discussion about it. No. But I’m sure it’ll be fantastic.”

So it would be fair to say that Gwen Cooper won’t be taking to the screen in November, but for fan’s of Eve Myles, she will be appearing in the new six-part drama series Frankie on BBC One next month. What do you guy’s think about a Torchwood Movie or indeed the very future of the show? Let us know in the comment box below.
