Alright, the story so far. David Tennant is leaving Doctor Who at the end of the year. Because he was doing Hamlet and Love’s Labours Lost with the Royal Shakespeare Company last year, his last season is a foreshortened one, with only five stories. Two have aired in England: The Christmas special The Next Doctor (funny, sad, sweet and steampunky) and Planet of the Dead on Easter weekend (a good trad story). The Waters of Mars will air in November, and the final story will be a two-part Christmas special. This’ll be the first time that it’s been a two-parter. It’ll also be when Matt Smith appears as the Eleventh Doctor. I’m not sure about him, but I’ve not seen anything he’s done. Still, with Steven Moffat taking over running the show, I’m expecting good things.
Torchwood is doing a five-part story in July, called Children of the Earth. Dunno why Torchwood’s having a shorter season. *sigh*
At least it looks like The Sarah Jane Adventures will have a normal season this autumn. Plus it was recently announced that Tennant will appear on the show, doing a full story, not just a cameo, so that’s sneaking in an extra bit for him, which is terrif!
I think that about covers it for now. Stay tuned…
