    Doctor Who NewsHadn't seen anyone else posting this, so thought I'd pitch in. It's official: Martha Jones will be back in Series Four, though not for the entire run. She'll rejoin the Doctor and his new companion midway through the series, but not till she's appeared in three episodes of the spinoff "Torchwood."

    Also, Kylie Minogue has been confirmed as being the special guest star of the Doctor Who Christmas special, "Voyage of the Damned." This of course after the production team had denied Ms. Minogue would be coming to the show. Then again, they denied that Martha was leaving at the end of this season, and that Rose was leaving at the end of last season...you get the picture.

    And who will be the Doctor's new companion? Well, she isn't exactly new...Catherine Tate will reprise her role of Donna Noble from the 2006 X-Mas special, "The Runaway Bride." Ms. Tate will join David Tennant for the entire 13-episode run of Series Four.

    Here's the links to the official announcements for each item, in the order they were referenced above.

     Upper Boat May Be Asked to Lower Output  View Printable Version

    General NewsSarahjanetv have recently pointed to a slightly worrying article in the Independent, which may have a future impact on all output from Upper Boat. Entitled "Who Will Be Exterminated?", the article says the £2 billion shortfall in expected license fee revenue is forcing management to make some very tough choices.

    Among the options being considered is a sharp reduction in the number of in-house productions of hour-long drama "like Torchwood and Doctor Who". Since the entire RTD "Whoniverse" is a BBC production—as opposed to an independent show which the BBC buys as a finished good—all of them are theoretically up for cost/benefit review.

    Doctor Who News

    Starting on Friday, the 29th of June, you will be able to vote for Who is the Greatest Doctor Who? at BBC's UKTV Drama website. The vote leads up to their Doctor Who Weekend on the 14th and 15th of July.

    So be sure to vote, not for Saxon, but rather for Who is the Greatest Doctor Who? In addition to the vote, UKTV Drama will be creating a fansite forum where sites such as the Gallifreyan Embassy among others can express why their favourite Doctor should win the vote.

     Network Ten continues its full court press on Torchwood  View Printable Version

    TorchwoodAs reported earlier, initial results of Torchwood's debut on Australia's Network Ten has rated well among viewers—even though it's scheduled opposite Battlestar Galactica on pay TV. This has in part been aided by press coverage which, with the odd exception, has been more interested in writing about the Doctor Who, Russell T. Davies, or socially progressive connections, than in submitting reviews about the series on its own merits.

    But surely some of the initial success of the programme has been because of Ten's own initial support of the show. Not only have Ten financed an aggressive print and television ad campaign—which has employed Eve Myles and John Barrowman in new material—but the Torchwood website there is bigger than, say, the current size of the Canadian Broadcasting Company's Doctor Who website. In addition to hosting all the Torchwood Declassified episodes, it's been generating its own unique content.

    Top on that list are a couple of fresh interviews with cast members Eve Myles and Naoko Mori.

    Meanwhile, the first week of broadcast attracted print coverage of John Barrowman as well as Eve Myles. (Be warned, though, that the Eve Myles interview vaguely spoils elements of Series 2.)

    TorchwoodSeries 1 of Torchwood may be a distant memory in the UK, but it's still an unknown commodity in much of the English-speaking world. To combat this, the BBC and its worldwide partners are entering a phase of increased publicity.

    Fansite TorchwoodTV reported earlier this week that Torchwood will be unveiled to the largest genre convention in the US next month. The San Diego ComicCon, arguably the world's largest comic convention, will feature a panel devoted entirely to Captain Jack and his not-so-merry band. Such treatment is somewhat unusual for British properties, but is a rite of passage for American genre shows. Famously, the movement to get Firefly to return as the movie Serenity was largely buoyed by Joss Whedon's frequent appearances at the ComicCon. But virtually every other major genre show or film—from Star Wars to Heroes—has seen the necessity of energizing the fan base at the convention prior to releasing their product in the American market.

    Sarah Jane Adven...You may not know his name yet, but Joseph Millson is having a busy 2007. Not only did he kickstart the year with the debut of "Alan Jackson" in The Sarah Jane Adventures, but he also basked in the continuing glow of the theatrical release of Casino Royale.

    Now at midyear, as he's returned to Cardiff to complete the 11-week shoot on SJA, another of his television projects is just finishing its run in the UK. In the ITV program, Talk To Me, Millson plays one of the three main leads.

    His character, "Woody", finds himself in a love triangle with his best friend, and the friend's wife, who work with him at a radio station. Ironically, the three produce a show for the lovelorn.

    The four-episode serial has been airing on Sundays in June just after the watershed at 9pm. The programme will definitely see a Region 2 DVD release in the next few months; a Region 1 or 4 release is a little less certain.

    What is clear is the centrality of the show to ITV's new look. Talk To Me was the first show commissioned by the new ITV Head of Drama, and is seen as something of a test of her vision. The show has seen a rise in viewership from its initially modest 4.2 million; later episodes have been more like the numbers for Life on Mars.

    The timing of Millson's ITV success couldn't be better for Sarah Jane Adventures. Its target audience seemingly secure based on "Invasion of the Bane", SJA certainly couldn't be hurt by the intriguing possibilities of Millson's higher profile on British TV. With this meaty romantic role fresh in their minds prior to the SJA launch, will mothers now be watching SJA for Millson just as dads will tag along for Sladen?

    Doctor Who NewsAs user daveac has noticed in his television listings for Saturday, 30 June 2007, episode 13 is indeed slightly longer than usual. This squares with hints Julie Gardner gave in a March podcast for The Stage, and indeed Russell T. Davies' flat statement in Doctor Who Magazine #384.

    However, a mystery still seems to lie in the difference of the allotted times for the initial broadcast on Saturday, wherein 50 minutes are given on BBC1, and the repeat broadcasts on BBC3, where "Last of the Time Lords" is afforded 55 minutes.

    Freema Ageyman's main fansite is quoting a run-time of 51.5 minutes.

    Does this wide range of "time slots" mean anything about the version one might see on a given evening? Are there multiple copies? Why allow 55 minutes if the episode is only about 52? What will this mean for the episode's upcoming broadcast on the American SciFi Channel? As of today, these are all unanswered questions, sure to force dedicated Doctor Who fans to tape each broadcast and check for possible differences.

     K-9 Adventures: update from Broadcast magazine  View Printable Version

    General NewsThe long-announced K-9 Adventures seems to still be in production, despite a year-long drought of news on the subject. The FAQ over at the Outpost Gallifrey K-9 Adventures forum now reflects some news from a credible industry source.

    According to the FAQ, updated just today, Broadcast magazine's 13 April 2007 report on the state of K-9 Adventures for the first time listed writers other than K-9 co-creator Bob Baker. It said that Andrew Nicholls and Darrell Vickers—both well-known writers of children's animation—were to be chief writers. It also gave an expected delivery date of July 2008 for the 26-part series.

    Unfortunately, the report seems to be in the subscription-based part of Broadcast's website. Independent verification of the report is therefore problematic. Nevertheless, the fact that this news originates at Broadcast is of significance in deciphering its accuracy—Broadcast is a serious, British television trade journal.

    Today marks the 22nd anniversary of the Gallifreyan Embassy. Since this year marks the 44th anniversary of Doctor Who, it means the Gallifreyan Embassy have been around for half that time. Wow!

    As we did on our 20th anniversary (see the article: 20 Years Ago...), special thanks goes to all those in our 22 year history that has made the organization what it was, what it is today, and what it will be in years to come.

    Who would have thought back in June of 1985 that we would still be doing this more than two decades later, and now on a world-wide scale? Amazing? Mind blowing? Incredible? No... just fantastic!

    As reported last weekend on Outpost Gallifrey, Radio Wales began a three-episode series on the afternoon "Blink" debuted. Called Doctor Who: Back in Time, the series will put out a new episode on at 1pm on 9, 16 and 23 June. Julian Carey is the host of the series, which seeks to connect Welsh listners to their homegrown flagship programme.

    The first in the series, which has obviously already aired, features Carey in an in-depth interview with David Tennant. Coming up this Saturday is an exploration of the economic and social impact the production of Doctor Who is having on Wales. On the 23d, a more free-form episode debuts, which will allow cast and crew to answer questions from various members of the Welsh public.

    Each episode is available worldwide for a week after its initial broadcast.

    DW Reviews Starring Peter Davison as the 5th Doctor and Nicola Bryant as Peri

    Big Finish has created some desktop wallpaper for this episode which is available here:

    www.bigfinish.com/drwho_main/bf095_exotron.shtml


    Exotron:

    Here is a familiar story: Boy meets girl. Boy marries girl. Girl is unfaithful to boy. Boy divorces girl and goes off to run a fleet of robots via a telepathic net.

    Actually; despite the plotline for this story being a little clichéd the play itself wasn’t too bad.

    The Doctor and Peri are doing a little botanical research on a distant earth colony when they are apparently attacked by a Farakosh. The Farakosh are part of the indigenous life on the planet and are like giant hyenas. Our heroes are soon rescued by an Exotron dispatched to protect the colonists. The Exotrons are large robots equipped with larger armaments to fight the Farakosh. The Doctor is (surprisingly) then kidnapped by the Exotron. Of course there is more to this story than it at first appears but there is very little that would surprise anyone who has been a slightly more than casual Doctor Who devotee.
