We've all been speculating and/or hearing news about which former companions or Doctors may/wants to make a return appearance for Doctor Who's 50th anniversary next year. However, there's one very important person who was heavily involved in the series since its return to TV in 2005 who definitely WON'T be dipping his toes in the special, like, at all. Hint? It's not former 9th Doctor Christopher Eccleston.
Former Doctor Who showrunner Russell T. Davies is the man who made one of the BBC's oldest characters cool for a whole new generation—and we nearly could've had some new Davies' Who. But, the BBC shot his latest idea down.
In the wake of Torchwood: Miracle Day—which performed decently enough in the ratings, but got mixed reviews from fans—it's natural to wonder if we'll ever get to see more adventures of Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper. Right now, everyone wants to do it ... save Torchwood's creator.
By now, you know all about Torchwood: Miracle Day's premise that one day, no one on Earth dies, right? Well, Russell T Davies has just made a big, whopping heck of an announcement about the upcoming 10-part BBC/Starz series. Need we say *spoilers*, everyone?

Last week Torchwood returned sucking us right back into the adventures of Captain Jack Harkness and Gwen Cooper as they began to investigate a world-wide event known as Miracle Day. That miracle — people on the Earth suddenly stop dying — will turn out to be anything but as the series progresses, said series creator and executive producer Russell T Davies in an exclusive interview.
