Russell T Davies has promised fans he will reunite with Torchwood actress Eve Myles in the future, as he makes a pledge in a new video.


Rolling the BAFTA dice on some of the characters he has created over the course of his career during an episode of Roll Play, the Doctor Who showrunner landed on Eve Myles as Gwen Cooper in Torchwood - a role that was made specifically for her, according to Davies.

Reflecting on their work together, Davies explained: "I love her. I'm sad I'm not working with Eve Myles at the moment. She's a Welsh actor, so I'd seen her for years.

"She did a series on BBC Wales called Belonging, and I used to sit and watch it thinking, 'I'm dying to work with her.'

"She came in and did one Doctor Who, and it was so brilliant and so mad and so lovely and so unforgettable I just thought I've got to work with her again - so I created a show called Torchwood and gave her the lead.

"It was written for her, it was a straight offer. I think she's amazing... she's properly brilliant."
