Espenson, who is know for her work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Battlestar Galactica, will be writing three of the 10 episodes in the series.
I love blending tones—mixing the broadly comedic moment in with the darkly dramatic one can heighten both. Torchwood is a show that welcomes that kind of moment. I'm also really eager to play with all the culture-clash material that comes naturally out of the show's pedigree. Writing for a show with roots in another country—this is a new experience for me, and I'm loving it.
