Torchwood

The request was partially successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,
I would like to know why in the first why Torchwood is currently on Hiatus in the first place
The Creator of the programme 'Russell T Davies' has spoken in interviews that it was down to the BBC in general that Torchwood has been in Limbo since 2011. What does he mean by that?
Why did the BBC give permission for Big Finish to carry on the series without attempting to do another series on tv?
John Barrowman has also commented in this last interview that he tried to get the series revived in tv form.
But what exactly prevented this from happening.
I would like to say Torchwood is one of the best spin-offs, the BBC has made for DW fans when the main programme returned in 2005.
Can you notify the Doctor Who Executive Producers (Chris Chibnall) in some form, if they could make some new DW Spin-offs shows alongside the main show (Doctor Who) in the foreseeable future?
The BBC is lacking the potential for Spinoff shows for its successful sci-fi hit Doctor Who, we need Spin-offs!!!

Yours faithfully,

B. Edwards
