UK News is reporting Russell T Davies is leaving for America. The article is proclaiming uncertainty over the Doctor Who spin-off shows he had spearheaded with his relocating to Hollywood, CA. Russell T Davies says in the article:
"I haven’t planned anything, all my furniture is now there and I’m just going to start writing."
"It will take years to get anything made out there. It’s going to be difficult, so new and so brilliant. I will learn from people and bring it back here one day. It’s a big adventure and a lot of fun."

Amidst the unraveling of the Doctor Who spin-off, Torchwood: Children of Earth, the BBC has released more information on the upcoming Doctor Who special, The Waters of Mars.
The BBC Press Office has released information on their Autumn 2009 line up on BBC One, including Doctor Who - The Waters of Mars:
Torchwood: Children of Earth (episode 1) Day One saw a jump in the ratings for the show. Reportedly 5.9 million viewers in the UK is said to have watched this first episode of the third series of Torchwood according to the BBC.
Compared to between 2.5 and 4.2 million average audience of series 2 of Torchwood, it is clear that the anticipation for the return of the series has been fairly strong. This marks the highest ratings recorded for the Doctor Who spin-off show since it first came on to the scene in 2007. At that time when it was on BBC Three, it peaked at just under 1 million for its highest viewed episode.

It's a publication from the same people who publish Variety, the entertainment industry trade paper. I used to work for a distributor, and I still get this electronically - it's always interesting to read to see what the trends are. And sometimes there's cool stuff too!

I'll let you know if I find anything else of interest.
