Russell T. Davies May Leave 'Torchwood' After Miracle Day

'Torchwood' creator Russell T. Davies has suggested that he may leave the show after the new ten-part series Miracle Day.

Speaking to BBC News Davies said he would likely move on to other projects once new ten-part series Miracle Day is complete, saying:
"It's interesting as to how long I can stay in the science fiction world," he said. "Personally I think I'm coming to the end of it now and I've saved the world and blown up the world too many times."

"It's time to write something just where people talk in kitchens, at least for me," he insisted. "But I hope we literally leave the franchise in a very strong position [so] that other writers come in and take it over."

"In a way for me, Torchwood never went away because it always lives in my head," he explained. "Eve Myles's character Gwen Cooper and obviously Captain Jack, played by John Barrowman, it's their fourth year of stories now. It's kind of like they have become modern legends. I love that."
Torchwood: Miracle Day will air on BBC One in the UK and Starz in the US.
