With the explosive season finale of Torchwood having aired in the UK this weekend (It's not just Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica around here, you know), Naoko Mori has been talking about not only what happened to her character Tosh this time around, but what may be happening to her next season, as well. If you don't want to be spoiled, don't read any further.
Despite Tosh being killed in the season finale (See? Told you I was going to spoil it; Owen also apparently dies, but he was kind of dead already), Mori feels that there's a possibility you may see her in future episodes:
I hope so. Never say never. There has been talk and we've kind of left that open and in the air. It would be nice, wouldn't it? ...I would never say no to [going back], but as I've always said, I want to make sure it's done for the right reason. It all depends on the story and should not just for the sake of it. If they do then I'm sure it will be, because it's Russell and the great team of writers he has. We'll just have to see, I guess.
Mori also talked about how she felt about the death in the first place:
I found out probably a good two months' before, in September of last year. When I was told, I was obviously shocked and sad, but to be honest, it made sense to me. The show needed a big season finale. It also made sense because Tosh has been through so much. She's come a full circle and had her journey... Sometimes when these deaths occur, one of the dangers is that it's just done for shock value. I wanted it to be shocking, but not just for the sake of that. Hopefully it comes across that way. It wasn't in vain and there was a purpose.
That purpose, of course, was ridding Torchwood of two of its more bland characters. Now, all we have to do is get rid of Gwen and we're all set for a better season 3.
