The Doctor Who spin-off started on BBC Three and was later moved to BBC2, where it pulled in 3.3 million viewers an episode.

Its popular following has convinced bosses at the Beeb to give the third series of sci-fi drama a prime-time BBC1 slot.

And the five-part series will be aired on consecutive nights next Spring in a week-long Torchwood special to introduce it to new audiences.

John Barrowman, who stars as Captain Jack Harkness in the show, said he was “ecstatic” with Torchwood’s new slot.

The actor said: “Torchwood has really reached out to audiences worldwide and the fact it’s moved up the channels on the BBC is incredible.”
