Russell T Davies In-Route to America; Torchwood Future Uncertain

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."

Australian Torchwood: Children of Earth Trailer References the Doctor

The latest trailer for Torchwood: Children of Earth shown on Australia's UKTV has Gwen Cooper references the Doctor. 

On a related note, word now is that the BBC in the UK will be scheduling the transmission of the new five-part mini series, Torchwood: Children of Earth now between the 4th - 10th of July. If this is the case, it goes against the previous information of the BBC and BBC America showing them during the same week.

Together they all will be on a Doctor Who panel on Sunday, the 26th of July 2009 from 10 AM to 11 AM PDT at this annual event.

io9 Publishes "Spoiler" Image

An anonymous source has provided io9 an image which appears to be a video still grab (as the image appears to be interlaced). 

We will avoid the spoiler information here. It does confirm at least one casting rumour we have reported on recently in Doctor Who: Podshock. It also confirms another casting/character rumour that has been long bandied about concerning the climax of the 2009 specials.

The article on io9 by Charlie Jane Anders also mentions the title of the one of the actors pictured and the character's wardrobe lends credence that the title may be true as well. If so, it opens up other possibilities and confirms what many have been conjuring over the last few years.
