Christopher Eccleston as John Lennon

While we are eager to see The Doctor return in the form of Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor this spring when Doctor Who returns, he won't be the only actor to play the Time Lord returning. Christopher Eccleston returns to the BBC in a biopic for BBC Four titled, Lennon Naked which charts the musician from his transition from The Beatles to the enduring and enigmatic icon.

Billie Piper is back, joining Sue Johnston on BBC One in A Passionate Woman. They play two stages of the life of Betty, a wife and mother that fell in love with a Polish neighbour with disastrous consequences. 

Ashes to Ashes, the sequel to Life on Mars returns for its final series with Gene Hunt returning (reprised by Philip Glenister). It promises more twists and turns than ever before as we relive the splendor of 1980s.

The popular series, Being Human returns, the award winning drama about the lives of three flatmates who just happen to be a ghost, a werewolf, and a vampire.

As previously mentioned another little series is set to return depicting a traveling Time Lord in a blue box with a new Doctor, new executive producer, new series, and new adventures. 

It should also be noted that Naoko Mori of Torchwood will be playing Yoko Ono with Christopher Eccleston as husband John Lennon in Lennon Naked.
