New Producer for Sarah Jane Adventures Series 4?

Sarah Jane AdventuresThe BBC is seeking a new producer to head up series 4 of The Sarah Jane Adventures according to an article today on ATV Network. It states that shooting is due to start in March and that the BBC will produce 12 episodes starring Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith.

This comes on the heels of yesterday's report in The Hollywood Reporter that The Sarah Jane Adventures creator and producer, Russell T Davies is spearheading a US version of Torchwood with Fox. We can assume the reason the BBC is seeking a new producer for CBBC spin-off of Doctor Who is due to the fact that Russell T Davies is in the US and if reports are correct, may be busy with the US Torchwood project.

Winter/Spring BBC Highlights Include the Return of Doctor Who, Billie Piper, Christopher Eccleston, Ashes to Ashes, and Being Human

The BBC Press Office revealed their highlights for Winter/Spring for BBC Drama which includes rock stars, Time Lords, and vampires.

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.

BBC Makes The End of Time Date and Time Official

It is no big surprise that the final David Tennant (as the 10th Doctor) Doctor Who specials, The End of Time, Part 1 and Part 2 will be shown on the BBC in the UK on Christmas Day and New Year's Day respectively. It was pretty much what we have all been expecting ever since the specials were originally announced. Though we have been waiting for an official word from the Beeb on the dates and times of two last specials before Matt Smith takes over the part.

The End of Time, Part One will be on BBC One on Christmas Day at 6pm. 

The End of Time, Part Two will be on New Year's Day at 6:40pm on BBC One and runs 75 minutes.

Following suit, BBC America has also announced their date and times for part two (see here for details) as well today.

Dream Dates

DreamlandThe animated Doctor Who adventure, Dreamland starring David Tennant as the 10th Doctor will be shown daily starting on Saturday, the 21st of November 2009. The six episode animated series will be shown on the BBC Red Button and the Doctor Who website (most likely locked down to UK visitors only unfortunately). 

Being billed as "Doctor Who meets a 50's monster B-movie," the mini series is written by Phil Ford and takes place in the USA (ironically as of yet there has been no announced dates or releases for US fans for this animated series), Area 51 (in Nevada) known for its alien lore. The Doctor finds himself in Dreamland, a secret base in the US which leads him on a mission to rescue Rivesh Mantilax from the threat of the Viperox as well as the American military of course.
