I was pretty stoked to learn that Torchwood was finding new life Stateside with bigger budgets and our beloved -- and let's face it, downright essential -- Captain Jack Harkness. The new Torchwood team sounds pretty killer as well. But what I think will be the series' crowning glory, and makes this show a must-watch come Summer of 2011, the writers the show has just brought on.
Naturally, creator Russell T. Davis -- who is still in charge -- will write a number of the show's episodes himself. But he's also bringing on some scribe talent that should make every geek squee in anticipation. The names come from the UK incarnation of Torchwood, as well as shows like The X-Files, Battlestar Galactica, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
