Russell T Davies has said that the new series of Torchwood won’t include many references to Doctor Who but will "honour and respect" Torchwoods past series.  He said: “Captain Jack is immortal, and what we are talking about is the world turns immortal there’s an awful lot of story packed into that… There’s no break in continuity. There’s no fracturing. There’s fewer references to Doctor Who, because we are making a show out here, they are making a show in Britain. It’s quite difficult to coordinate any sort of crossover. Neither would you want to, because both shows have a fantastic identity of their own. But for those fans who like that sort of stuff, it’s still absolutely faithful.”

Torchwood filming began in LA yesterday, and John Barrowman joined the cast and crew out there earlier today.
