A casting call sheet for the fourth series of Torchwood has apparently been leaked. The sheet says filming on the ten episode series will begin January 12th 2011. It then reveals details on three key new characters, one of which will be a regular cast member. Character descriptions below.
REX MATHEON, CAUCASIAN, Late 20s, CIA agent, a fast-tracked high-flyer. And he knows it! Rex is fast, sharp, smart, clever, and when the situation demands it, ruthless. Hes got a lethal sense of humour he doesnt care if he makes enemies, hes too busy enjoying himself. But when Rexs life is put in danger, he feels his own mortality for the first time, and has to balance the demands of the job, and his duty to his country, against his desperate desire to survive. Though that doesnt defeat him if anything, it makes him even more arrogant and unstoppable than ever. For Rex, all rules are off! Like him or loathe him, you cant miss him and thats exactly how Rex wants things to be. Series regular.
ESTHER KATUSI, Shes early 20s, a Watch Analyst at the CIA its one of the less glamorous jobs, filtering information to pass along the chain. But Esthers determined to better herself! Shes still young, so the job hasnt made her cynical yet shes still an optimist, ever hopeful, and her faith in mankind is sustained by her own Christianity. Shes hopelessly in love with one of the CIA agents, Rex Matheson, though shed never tell him. Nevertheless, shes no pushover shes more than capable of thinking for herself, and can break the rules when she needs to. And when Esthers forced off the grid, and on the run, she learns to survive, fast. She turns out to be a natural, learning to fight and run with the best of them, without ever losing her essential good-hearted nature. Please submit actors of all races and ethnicities EXCEPT Caucasian. Recurring Guest Star. Will appear in many, or possibly all 10 episodes.
OSWALD JONES, CAUCASIAN, Late 40s, a convicted murderer and pedophile. But hes no thug this man is dangerously clever. Oswald escapes his sentence on a technicality, and finds himself becoming a media celebrity. And hes sharp enough to make the most of the situation, and profit from it. Hes always thinking, always aware, always looking for the chance to promote himself while living with the fact that many people want him dead. He appears to be wonderfully, genuinely repentant but underneath, hes still boiling with lust and rage. And one day, hes going to lose control again. But this man is destined to become more important than even he could have foreseen, as terrifying events of worldwide significance begin to turn around him
Recurring Guest Star. Will appear in many, or possibly all 10 episodes.
"it really depends if russell t davies is letting living in LA affect his writing it could be the worse Dr who thing ever created but if he is strong enough (which i doubt) then they might not be that bad."
Yes. Let’s glamorize a pedophile on TV. Just the thing to stop all the real perverts in their tracks. /MUCHO SARCASMO
I also find Esther’s faith in mankind disturbing.
So, they have a new character based on Roman Polanski?
Yep. Deviancy rules. Series jumped the shark.
I would just assume keep my normal Torchwood with Captain Jack, Tosh, Owen, Gwen, and Rhys over what is being proposed.

What in the !~@#$!
Words escape me....
Well, we’ll always have Children of Earth, the best of the series.
Uh, you hadn’t noticed ?? They killed off Owen, Tosh, and Ianto. And Captain Jack is off to the stars again. .
We’ve even stopped letting the kids watch Dr. Who for the CONSTANT gay references in the shows. The last one we watched was some character saying he ‘chatted some guy up’ in a bar......but it was ‘strictly professional’. And when an ‘apocalyptic’ event happened, one man grabbed the other and kissed him on the forehead. We said enough. There was also an episode where Dr’s (past and present) were looking at each other longingly. It was VERY uncomfortable. Even my lib hubby said it has gone too far.
I watched the show for a bit. Then the gay crap caught me unaware and made me vomit all over my big screen tv.
I hated to see them go/get killed off. Considering what is being proposed, I will stick with the original people on DVD.
RTD isn’t in charge of Dr Who, and so the gay agenda is gone. They guy in charge now has a wife and kids, and seems to ofent draw on the fears his kids have as a jumping off point for his scripts. Come on back, it’s so much better now.
