    Doctor Who News

    If the what The Sun is reporting today is true, it would mean big news for all Doctor Who fans for the upcoming series of specials planned for 2009. The trouble is, by reporting this, we would be giving away a big surprise.... so we won't. Though it is difficult to report on this huge story while keeping it spoiler free.

    The news is so big that if true, it is going to be difficult to contain. So as much as this should stay in the spoiler space, eventually it will get out. That being said, we will keep this in the spoiler zone for the time being. BUT if you do wish to learn the news which appears in an article in The Sun today, this is the link to the said article. BE WARNED -- it will ruin a huge surprise for next year -- We can't even tell you the title of the article, but here is the link to it: (Click at your own risk and no, you will not be 'rickrolled'):

    (link is below "read more")

    Remember, you have been warned...

    Link to the article in The Sun (published today, 11 Sept 2008)

    It's very cool if true. Something we had openly wished might happen in various Doctor Who: Podshock episodes.

    UPDATE: 12 September 2008 According to Digital Spy today, the BBC has refuted The Sun article stating there is no truth to it. Digital Spy - BBC Refutes __(Spoiler Info CENSORED here)__ 'Dr. Who' ____ Story

    I'm gonna be a killjoy and point out that the article says filming will begin in Oct/Nov and Tennant is involved.

    Hmmmm....I am pretty sure Tennant is busy until late Jan, and filming is supposed to begin for 2009 specials in Feb..... I hardly think they'll do a bunch of filming for the show in November, and then have a 2 month hiatus for the production crew and any cast that need to do scenes with Tennant as well.

    80%? Really that high? I'd certainly give them a 2 out of 3, but 4 out of five seems a bit high considering how many "the next Doctor will be a woman" stories they have run over the years :)
