Torchwood fan turmoil – “U.S. version of Torchwood” news story

Torchwood fan turmoil!

Torchwood USA

The news story from the Hollywood Reporter (link.) / Hollywood Reporter blog version, slightly more text (link.)

So, what IS this possible “Torchwood USA”?

a) A franchise spinoff – like CSI:Miami from the original CSI, (like CSI:Cardiff mentioned by Torchwood S1Ep1)!

— Holywood Reporter Hints? – ‘Fox is developing a stateside version of the U.K. hit series “Torchwood.” ‘

b) A continuation – effectively “Season 4” is broadcast on FOX and other channels!!

— Holywood Reporter Hints? – ‘The project is from BBC Worldwide Prods., with original series creator Russell Davies writing the script.’

c) A remake – like Life on Mars USA, not the same continuity as Doctor Who / Torchwood (UK)!!!

— Holywood Reporter Hints? – ‘Unlike U.S. adaptations that have gone awry, “Torchwood” fans can take comfort that the original producing team is on board’…

So, a) or b) or c)?!

This confusion over the three different possible kinds of “Torchwood USA” PLUS the fact of (DW 1996 TV Movie / Firefly, TSCC, Dollhouse) FOX, PLUS the mention of “Doctor Who USA” means: fan turmoil!
