Burton Cromer—vice president of BBC Direct, which is releasing the first season of the British SF series Doctor Who on DVD—told SCI FI Wire that the BBC made the unusual decision to release the DVD in the United States before the show had found a broadcast outlet there. But he added that the show will find its way onto American TV, one way or another.

SCI FI Gets Who Season Two

SCI FI Channel and BBC Worldwide Americas announced a major licensing agreement for SCI FI to air the second season of the hit British SF series Doctor Who (http://www.scifi.com/doctorwho/) in the United States. The series will return to SCI FI on Sept. 29, kicking off with a two-hour premiere that will include the "Christmas Invasion" special in which David Tennant is introduced as the 10th Time Lord.

Billie Piper returns as the Doctor's feisty young companion, Rose Tyler, and together they will travel through time and space battling new and returning aliens and monsters.

Chris Regina, vice president of programming, SCI FI Channel, said in a statement: "Our audience has clearly embraced Doctor Who, and it has delivered a significant increase in viewers in the time period. We are looking forward to keeping the momentum going with David Tennant as the new Doctor."

http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gifhttp://www.finheaven.com/clear.gifhttp://www.finheaven.com/clear.gifCapt. Jack Returning To Who

John Barrowman, who plays Capt. Jack Harkness on the Doctor Who spinoff series Torchwood, confirmed to SyFy Portal (http://www.syfyportal.com/news.php?id=3008) that his character will return for a multi-episode arc during the upcoming third season of Doctor Who. "I will be in [season] three of Doctor Who," Barrowman said in an interview. "I will be in the last three episodes of four episodes, and the scripts are being written as we speak, because I just got a text from [Doctor Who executive producer Russell T. Davies] telling me that he's finishing the script [in which] Jack returns."

Barrowman first appeared as Capt. Jack in the Doctor Who episode "The Empty Child," and remained on the show through the end of the first season. He later reprised the role in Torchwood, which premiered in October and is currently airing in the U.K. on BBC Three.

Barrowman didn't reveal the details of his reappearance on Doctor Who, but did rule out the possibility of any future crossovers on his new show. "You will never have Who crossing over into Torchwood," he told the Web site. "Doctor Who is for children, is a base for family viewing and children. Torchwood is not. The only person that will cross at this point will be Jack going back and forth, because Jack has a different persona in Doctor Who [than] he does in Torchwood, if that makes any sense. He's darker because of his circumstances, and he'll change again when [he] comes in, or he might be darker when he comes back in Doctor Who."

The first season of Torchwood wraps up in January. Doctor Who returns for a Christmas special, "The Runaway Bride," which airs in the U.K. on Dec. 25, before beginning its third season next year.

Agyeman Re-Ups For Who

The BBC (http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/news/cult/news/drwho/2007/07/02/46692.shtml) confirmed that Freema Agyeman, who plays companion Martha Jones on the hit Doctor Who series, will return for a fourth season and will also appear in the spinoff series Torchwood. But a second companion is slated to join Doctor Who for the first half of the fourth season.

The season-three finale aired on June 30 in the United Kingdom; season three begins airing in the United States on SCI FI Channel on July 6. :D

Agyeman is also set to join the cast of Torchwood, where she will play Martha Jones in three new episodes before returning to Doctor Who in the middle of the fourth season.

"[Season] three has gained outstanding reviews, and Freema has been a huge part of that success, gaining rave notices for her portrayal of Martha," executive producer and head writer Russell T. Davies told the BBC. "Now we are taking the character of Martha into brand-new territory with a starring role in Torchwood."

The new announcement leaves a vacant space in the TARDIS. A new companion for the Doctor, who will join the new season for the entire 13-week run, will be announced shortly.

Torchwood Secrets To Be Revealed

John Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack on the BBC Two's Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood, told SCI FI Wire that the upcoming second season will reveal more about his character's complicated backstory.

The character of Captain Jack was introduced in a two-part episode of Doctor Who and went on to appear in the final five episodes of the first season. Later, he become the leader of a secret organization at the center of the spinoff show, Torchwood. How he got from one place and time to the other is a mystery that will gradually unfold over the course of Torchwood's second season.

"You don't know the exact date when Jack returned yet," Barrowman said. "We do know he was left on Satellite Five [at the end of season one of Doctor Who]. He was brought back to life. He then came back to Earth and arrived back in another time and had to live through it to get to the point where the Doctor came back. In [season] two of Torchwood, there's some of that revealed."

In his performance, Barrowman is also now bearing in mind an intriguing new piece of information about the character, which was slipped into the end of the recent third season of Doctor Who (currently airing on the SCI FI Channel). He couldn't talk about the twist in specifics, but he did say that it came as a shock, not only to him, but also to co-star David Tennant, who plays the Doctor.

"It's always something that takes you by surprise, otherwise it wouldn't be fiction," Barrowman said. "And I love that. And that script, when it came out, David read it. We were filming at the time, and he came running to my trailer and he went, 'F--k me. Have you read this?' And I went, 'No.' And he went, 'Oh, my God. Hurry up.' I went, 'Shut up and get out of my trailer. I'm not reading it yet.' ... So then I read it, and on a lunch break I ran to his trailer and knocked on the door, and he went, 'Well?' And I went, 'F--k me!' But it's absolutely brilliant."

Season two of Torchwood will also further develop the character of Martha Jones, played by Freema Agyeman, who will be making a guest appearance in three episodes.

"It's a perfect progression for her character," Barrowman said. "Because she develops such a strong character by the end of [season] three. So if Jack needs help, who else is he going to call? Jack trusted her to save the world. So did the Doctor. So who are you going to call? Martha Jones."

The third season of Doctor Who is currently running on SCI FI Channel Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Torchwood's first season will begin airing on BBC America on Sept. 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Who Writer Addresses Rumors

Steven Moffat, who has written some of the most memorable episodes of the BBC's new Doctor Who, told SCI FI Wire that fans have no cause to worry that the rumored departure of executive producer Russell T. Davies at the end of the fourth season will mean the end of the franchise, but he did not deny the rumor.

"I know that there's tremendous anxiety among Doctor Who fans about the future of Doctor Who," Moffat said in an interview at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif., where he was promoting his upcoming BBC America series, Jekyll. "Here's an answer that people should listen to. No broadcaster lets go of a show like Doctor Who. They'd have to be out of their f--king minds."

The new iteration of Doctor Who premiered in 2005 and just completed its third season in the United Kingdom. Each season has seen a major casting change, and the fourth one will be no exception. Catherine Tate has been announced as the Doctor's new companion, reprising the role of Donna Noble from last year's Christmas special, The Runaway Bride.

Moffat pointed out that Doctor Who has managed to remain popular despite these changes and that the show is bigger than any one person.

"If Doctor Who demonstrates anything—any simple truth about television—it's that everyone is dispensable," he said. "Doctor Who is probably there forever. It will probably outlive everyone on [fan Web site] Outpost Gallifrey. That's probably the truth. I'm not saying that it will run continuously for 20 years. They might give it a rest for a while, but I wouldn't imagine Doctor Who would rest for very long now. But Doctor Who is completely safe. It's not in great danger. It's been the center of British culture since Kennedy was shot. I mean, it's not going away. Look, they turned it to s--t and took it off for 15 years, and that didn't kill it. I mean, what's going to kill it now? Success?"

When asked if he might be the one to take over should Davies leave the show, Moffat appeared slightly uncomfortable. "Next question," he answered after a long pause. "There's a lot of things to think about there." The third season of Doctor Who is currently running on SCI FI Channel Friday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT. —Cindy White http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gif

It's actually a very touching two episode ending. It was strange that those two episodes didn't comprise the season finale. The last episode of the season was Runaway Bride.

My favorite Rose episode was when she carries the time vortex back to rescue the Doctor. That one will get you.

I will say that throughout the season with Martha, the Doctor pines for Rose.

I agree, IL, Martha is a hottie :)

I believe that's "The Parting of the Ways," and yeah, I loved that. I was very impressed with Billie Piper's acting -- it outclassed what one would expect from a mere pop tart. :D

Tonight's episode of Doctor Who, Gridlock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gridlock_(Doctor_Who)).

Once again the Doctor meets with the face of Boe who passes on a secret message before he passes away. This episode also co-stars my new favorite Doctor Who cutie, Lenora Crichlow.

CLASSIC CONNECTIONS:

The beautiful description of Gallifrey's burnt orange skies and silver leaves was first heard way back in the 1964 story The Sensorites.

The only other occasion that the Doctor has faced his crabby opponents was in 1967, when his second incarnation (Patrick Troughton) defeated them in The Macra Terror.

The Businessman that the Doctor meets isn't the first character to wear a bowler hat in the series; Trevor Sigma in The Happiness Patrol and the Time Lord in Terror of the Autons also notably sported the stylish headgear. Although bowlers went out of fashion in the UK by the 1980s, it seems that by the year five billion and fifty three, they're back in vogue for the sartorially conscious commuter!

Well, this IS Doctor Who, after all, and if they really WANTED her back (and she wanted to come back), they could write around it.

That said, I read there was originally talk of having a spinoff for her, but Russell Davies pulled the plug on the planning.

Wait and watch for the revelation in this season. :)

Or:

The third series of the revived Doctor Who features a subtle ontological paradox. In the episode "Gridlock", a being called the Face of Boe, supposedly billions of years old, gives the Doctor a message he has carried for centuries: "You are not alone". In the episode "Utopia", recurring character Captain Jack Harkness - a human being made immortal - accompanies the Doctor when he discovers the meaning and significance of Boe's message. In the series finale "Last of the Time Lords" it is implied that Captain Jack, able to live forever, will mutate and age very slowly until he becomes the Face of Boe in the distant future.

Clarke's Mickey May Return To Who?

Noel Clarke, who played Mickey Smith on the first two seasons of the BBC's Doctor Who, hinted to SCI FI Wire that he may be returning to the show in the upcoming fourth season, even though his character was left stranded in an alternate dimension.

Besides acting in Doctor Who, Clarke also wrote an episode of the first season of Torchwood, a spinoff series starring John Barrowman. When asked whether he would be writing any more scripts, he was coy about his availability. "I'm not doing the second [season] of Torchwood," he said. "Because I'm doing things that I can't talk about."

Clarke's character was the on-and-off boyfriend of the Doctor's companion, Rose Tyler, played by Billie Piper. But when Piper left the series at the end of the second season, her character was sent to a parallel universe, along with Mickey and her parents, Jackie and Pete (played by Camille Coduri and Shaun Dingwall).

"I think over the two seasons, people really grew to like Jackie and Mickey and Pete," Clarke said. "And consequently, as Rose departed, they departed with her. I think it's great [that they're missed]."

As for how the writers would explain Mickey's possible return, Clarke offered a vague explanation. "It's a parallel universe, baby," he said. "The only thing I could say is that it's sci-fi, right? And in sci-fi, there's no real rules, is there?"

The first season of Torchwood premieres on BBC America on Sept. 9 and will air Wednesdays at 9 p.m. Meanwhile, the third season of Doctor Who is currently airing on the SCI FI Channel Fridays at 9 p.m.

Tennant Leaving Who?

Catherine Tate, who will co-star with David Tennant in the upcoming fourth season of the BBC's Doctor Who, suggested that it may be Tennant's last as the immortal Time Lord, the BBC reported.

Speaking on Radio 2's Jonathan Ross program, Tate said: "I think it's maybe David's last [season]."

The BBC declined to comment on Tennant's future as the show's star.

Tate, who first appeared in the 2006 Christmas special, is set to return as the Doctor's assistant, Donna, for the entire run of the fourth season.

She will also be joined for several episodes by the Doctor's former companion, Martha Jones, played by Freema Agyeman.

Gorman Glad U.S. Gets Torchwood

Burn Gorman, who plays Dr. Owen Harper on the Doctor Who spinoff series Torchwood, told SCI FI Wire that he's pleased to see how the show has managed to emerge from the shadow of its predecessor, especially among American audiences.

"Personally, I find that really refreshing, that, basically, it's accepted as a stand-alone series," Gorman said in a phone interview. "It's certainly very different in tone. It still uses references to Doctor Who, but I think it's really good that it's being appreciated for what it is. Although I am a Doctor Who fan myself, so I always enjoy when there are references. When Jack goes off and disappears, it's kind of nice to have a mothership."

Torchwood stars John Barrowman as Capt. Jack Harkness, the leader of a secret organization charged with protecting Earth from alien threats. The character of Capt. Jack was originally introduced in the first season of the revitalized Doctor Who series in an episode titled "The Empty Child." He recently returned to that series in a three-episode arc culminating in the third-season finale.

As the second season of Torchwood begins, Jack is reunited with his team, who were left in the dark following his abrupt departure to be with the Doctor.

When it premiered in the United States last September on BBC America, Torchwood became the highest-rated series in the history of that network. Gorman said that the cast and crew were heartened to see that the show has such universal appeal.


The second season premiere of Torchwood, featuring guest star James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel), airs Jan. 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. --Cindy White

Fourth Who, New Sarah Due

SCI FI Channel has acquired the fourth season of Doctor Who and its hit spinoff series The Sarah Jane Adventures from BBC Worldwide America. Both series are slated to premiere on SCI FI in April.

The Sarah Jane Adventures is written and produced by the same creative team behind Doctor Who, including multiple-award-winning writer Russell T. Davies. The series centers on Sarah Jane Smith (Elisabeth Sladen), former companion to the Doctor, who investigates offbeat mysteries with her young friends Maria, Luke and Clyde.

The fourth season of Doctor Who, meanwhile, brings back star David Tennant as the 10th Timelord, joined by a new companion, Donna Noble (Catherine Tate), who reprises her role from the previous Christmas special. The Doctor's previous companion, Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman), also makes a triumphant return in the middle of season four.
