    Doctor Who News

    icWales.co.uk is reporting that Russell T Davies, writer and producer behind the return of Doctor Who to the small screen is refusing to bring it to the big screen.

    "We would not have time to do a movie at the moment. Maybe if it was all over and still popular, but I would not be desperately keen to work with BBC Films myself. I'm not supposed to say this... but I can't bear them!" Davies stated in the article.

    He continues, "I am in no rush to work with them whatsoever personally, but I suppose the BBC could have a go."

    The BBC had stated last year that they would be interested in making a Doctor Who movie if the new series is well received in the US. It seems that they will have to do it without Davies though if they still have the intention of making a feature film.

    Davies also made it clear in the article that he has no plans on bringing 'glamour model Jordan' on the series despite reports that she wants in on the show. "'No Chance' - bless her, but no way," states Davies.

    Doctor Who News

    The BBC is reporting that both David Tennant (the 10th Doctor) and Billie Piper (Rose Tyler) are confirmed to continue their roles in the "third series" in 2007. This would dispel any rumours of Billie Piper leaving after the 2006 series.

    It is also revealed == Minor Spoiler Alert == that Rose kisses the Doctor in the upcoming 2006 series. "...Although all is not quite as it seems," reports the BBC news article.

    It continues, "Without wanting to give away the plot, it must be said that Rose is not responsible for the lip-smacking action."

    Also mentioned in the article is that Russell T Davies would like to pull in more guest actors/actresses to the series even from Hollywood. On the top of his list is Sigourney Weaver, known to most science fiction fans for her role in Alien and Ghostbusters.

    Davies also admits he would not have a problem with the Doctor regenerating into a woman. Though this is not an issue at the moment since David Tennant is eager to stay in the role for now.

    Doctor Who News

    The Mirror in the UK is reporting that "the forthcoming series of Doctor Who will have a new version of the classic soundtrack recorded by unsigned British musician Kurgan Merrick."

    The Mirror states that an insider disclosed, "It will be darker than ever before - in fact it's menacing and quite scary."

    "The new theme tune is a lot slower than the one currently used. It sounds a bit like a distorted choir."

    The report did not go any further than that. With the wonderful reception that the Murray Gold theme version has had with fans, it is hard to believe that the BBC would be going with another composition so soon.

    Is that a Doctor in your Pocket?...

    Sylvester McCoy will be starring in a new play by Graeme Garden and Callum McLeod titled, The Pocket Orchestra Ė The Unlikely Lives of the Great Composers. The limited four week run will start on April 26th with a preview on the 25th at the West Endís Trafalgar Studio 2. The play is a comedic look at the history of classical music and it's composers in a "irreverent, satirical and shamelessly anecdotal" way.

    Doctor Who News

    With the 2005 series of Doctor Who starring Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper less than two weeks away from it's debut on the Sci-Fi Channel the New York Times has published an article on Doctor Who in their Arts section.

    The article Dr. Who 2: Sexed-Up British Intelligence focuses on the new series not shying away from sexuality as previous years may had. It focuses on Russell T. Davies being gay and having had created the original Queer as Folk series and how some nay-sayers in the British tabloid press prior to the news series premiere tried to paint a picture of a sexual charged new Doctor Who series would not be appropriate...

    The article states, "Though Mr. Davies's first season of "Doctor Who" has more sexuality, both submerged and overt, than the several hundred episodes that preceded it, the show's producers argue that it is Mr. Davies's creativity, and not his sexual identity, that has made their show a hit."

    "As he prepares for the reinvigorated "Doctor Who" to begin its second season on the BBC this spring, Mr. Davies said sexuality would always have a place in his science fiction, so long as it is balanced with all the other elements that constitute human experience."
