Miracle Day wasn't the amazing series that everybody was expecting it to be, but we know there is life in the franchise and we know the levels of awesome that Torchwood can reach, so do you think they should make a fifth series or has too much changed now and they should just call it a day?

I've voted 'I'm Not Sure', because while MD was ok, for 95% of it it just didn't feel like Torchwood any more. I would love for them to make a new series but I would like to see it based back in the UK and I would like to see a core cast in place. Characters have always come and gone on this show but nothing about Rex and Esther felt long term and for me at least they never really felt part of the team. I think that also after two seasons of season long stories, I would like to return to an episodic format.

I've gone with 'yes'. They had a dodgy season but that's not enough to warrant saying it shouldn't come back. Many people say that S6 of DW wasn't great, but I'm sure they still want to see S7 being made. I would like to see it come back to the UK and I would like to see it be more episodic, but if that's not the way it goes it doesn't mean that another season would be bad.

I voted "not sure" but it was really "depends" - depends on whether they do series 5 properly or not.

I voted "No" - I like Miracle Day for what it was but i kinda got the impression it was RTDs vehicle to get him into Hollywood rather than a special project of itself. I didn't enjoy it (there were large chunks of episodes where I was shouting "Get on with it") and it has really moved on from the Torchwood of seasons 1-3 which I loved.

I went with the middle option. The thing is, I would only want them to do it if they were to do it well and do it properly, which we wouldn't know until after it's done, and by which time it would be too late. If they planned on another story like Miracle Day I would say it's best not to bother. I want them to go back to the earlier seasons and do stories like that again.

I think they should definately make more. MD wasn't great, but we know the show can be. We shouldn't lose faith because it fell at one hurdle.

TS talks a lot of sense, but I went for 'not sure' in the end. It's all well and good hoping for the best and we do know that the show can be awesome, but MD hasn't filled me with hope for the future, especially given that RTD (assuming he stays with the show) has said he would never go back to the individual stories like we saw in the first few seasons.

I also agree.  It should keep going even if it faltered a bit in its last outing.

I went with I'm not sure, though it's more like 'I don't care'. I don't mean that in a harsh way, just that I really don't mind either way. Miracle Day wasn't great but it had it's moments and when it was good it was great, but it felt like a whole other show. If they could get the magic back of the earlier series I would be all for it, and if not then we still have three great seasons and an ok one out of it.

I went with the middle option, but like OWO it's more of an 'I don't mind'

Should they? Yes, definitely! Will they? Probably not!
