    Picked off the OG newspage!

    Highlights from Radio Times:

    3.1: SMITH AND JONES

    "[Martha is] 23, a medical student, and her family's going into meltdown. Dad's run off with his secretary, Mum's boiling with fury, brother Leo's got a six-month old baby, and sister Tish is all ambition, thinking only of her next job. Martha's stuck in the middle, as the peacemaker. Just the sort of woman who needs an escape. Before you know it, mysterious storms are sweeping across London, sinister motorcycle couriers are stalking the hospital and Martha finds herself transported to the Moon! That's just the beginning of her troubles, as the alien Judoon arrive in a fleet of mighty spaceships — big, brutal space police! Only one man seems to know what's going on: a patient called John Smith. And he claims he's some sort of Doctor."

    3.2: THE SHAKESPEARE CODE

    "We've taken her back to 1599, when Shakespeare's at the height of his powers, in London's Globe Theatre [below]. But if you're ten years old and the word ‘Shakespeare' makes you groan, then rest assured, this isn't just a history lesson. There are witch-like creatures at work, strange deaths — a man drowns on dry land! — some terrible puns and a fearful plot dating back to the dawn of the universe. ... I think this might be our most lavish production yet. We try to film in and around Cardiff, but there aren't many Elizabethan settings around here, so the team had to travel to Warwick, Coventry and to the Globe itself for some magnificent location filming."

    3.3: GRIDLOCK

    "The Tardis returns to the year five billion, on the planet New Earth, where the Doctor and Rose last fought off cat-nurse nuns and zombie patients. ... But before long, greedy Pharmacists, hapless kidnappers and terrifying Beasts from Below have thrown her into danger. And all because the Doctor told a lie.... The Doctor's old friend, the Face of Boe, is waiting with a secret."

    3.4: DALEKS IN MANHATTAN
    3.5: EVOLUTION OF THE DALEKS

    "1930s New York, Pig Men, sewers, showgirls and the Empire State Building. Oh yes, and Daleks, too. ... Helen's done a brilliant job, combining the Depression with the Daleks' desperation to survive and adding a good bit of The Island of Dr Moreau. Not to mention Frankenstein! Be prepared to see the Daleks as you've never seen them before."

    3.6: THE LAZARUS EXPERIMENT

    "A good old mad scientist, with an experiment going wrong, and an outrageous supervillain on the loose. ... The episode also marks a return to modern-day Earth and a chance to find out what's been happening to Martha's family in her absence. ... This time, pay attention to the enigmatic paymaster of Professor Lazarus as a trap plotted across the whole of time and space begins to close . . ."

    3.7: 42

    "The 42nd century, a spaceship in a far-flung galaxy, saboteurs at work, crew members possessed, and the terrifying catchphrase ‘Burn with me'. To be honest, I love that title as I can't wait to see the Radio Times billing for this episode: (7/13. 42). Dial that number, you get a free pizza."

    3.8: HUMAN NATURE
    3.9: THE FAMILY OF BLOOD

    "A very different sort of story — though still with monsters and scares galore! But when you've got David Tennant as your lead actor (call me biased, but The Best Actor in the Land, frankly), then you want to write stories that push the Doctor into completely new territory. And these two episodes take the Time Lord to places he's never been before, all in the haunting setting of a boys' public school in 1913; the winter before the War, with a chill in the air, and mysterious lights in the sky. If ever you thought scarecrows were scary, you ain't seen nothing yet."

    3.10: BLINK

    "The King of Terror, that's Mr Moffat. ... Doctor Who rarely scares me, because I've seen all the behind-the-scenes prosthetics and computer trickery, and I've lived with the scripts for months. But when I watch this episode — I'm not kidding — I'm scared to death! Go on, I dare you. Close the curtains. Turn the lights off. Huddle round the TV. Clutch your loved ones. And shiver."

    3.11: UTOPIA

    "Jack's back! As John Barrowman's Captain Jack Harkness comes storming back on board the Tardis — with an arrival like no companion has ever had before — it's time for the Tardis's wildest ride yet! It hurtles out of control, taking the crew to the distant planet Malcassairo, where a lonely and patient professor is giving his all to save his people from extinction."

    3.12: THE SOUND OF DRUMS
    3.13: LAST OF THE TIME LORDS

    "The trap closes, as the Doctor, Martha and Captain Jack find themselves in a desperate fight for survival. Who are the Toclafane? What is the power of Archangel? And what terrible secrets are stored at the heart of the Valiant? It's an epic and heartbreaking story, as the Doctor faces his greatest enemy yet. Now, I wonder who that could be . . ?"

    I put something similar here Although the blurbs weren't the same, might be tidier to keep it all in one place? I'll leave it for the powers that be to decide whether my post should come to this thread or vise versa?

    Is this the pitch for a new Soap or what?
