Details On Torchwood’s New Characters
In case you haven’t heard, Torchwood is coming back for another season, only this time it’ll only be seen exclusively on the pay cable channel STARZ. While some of the original cast will be back and they’ll probably keep the central premise, they’re retooling the show and, among other things, adding new characters.
Till now we haven’t known much about who or what those characters might be but EW has new information. Here it is:
Among the casting intel I’ve gathered on the new season (airing on my new favorite cable network, Starz), the show is out to cast a new series regular — Rex Matheson, a wickedly funny (operative word: wicked) CIA agent born to make waves. Almost as key to the new season are recurring characters Esther Katusi, a CIA grunt in her early 20s who learns what she’s really made of only when she’s forced to, and Oswald Jones, a convicted murderer and pedophile who will be as shocked as anyone to learn how easily infamy and fame can be exchanged for one another.
What’s the CIA doing involved with Torchwood, a British organization? Torchwood is moving to America.
