Hammond Talks Torchwood

Peter J Hammond who wrote the Torchwood Series 1 episode Small Worlds has recently told the SFX Blog that his story in Series 2 will be even scarier. According to the writer he has borrowed a plot element from his ITV series Sapphire and Steel which he created in the early 1980s. He also revealed some spoilers for his episode which can be seen by highlighting the text below.

"I think one of my favourite Sapphire and Steels was the one with Mr Shape going in and out of photographs. Torchwood takes this a bit further and it's people coming out of moving films from the '20s. There are some lovely 'black and white' people in it."As the SFX blog points out, that particular Sapphire and Steel story by Hammond has inspired two recent writers in their Doctor Who scripts, with the faceless people in The Idiot's Lantern and the trapped-in-mirrors resolution to the Family Of Blood."
