The BBC have confirmed that there won’t be a Totally Doctor Who Series 3 to air along with Doctor Who Series 4. It’s a shame really because it was something to watch and had a good preview to the next episode. Oh well.

Major Changes on the Way?

5 03 2008

There are some huge changes in the pipeline for Doctor Who and Torchwood, according to SciFi Pulse.

The website claims that both Burn Gorman (Owen) and Naoko Mori (Tosh) will be leaving Torchwood for its third series. John Barrowman (Captain Jack) will also be stepping down, and will return to the show but only ‘in a recurring capacity’. Freema Agyeman (Martha) will make her final appearance in Doctor Who in Series Four and will be returning to Torchwood full time for Series 3.

A third series of Torchwood has been commissioned, but currently only 5 episodes have been confirmed. These changes in the format mean that the third series of Torchwood will be able to be shown in a Saturday night slot, usually occupied by Doctor Who, and producers are looking to Torchwood to act as a buffer between the main series of Doctor Who.

Now onto Doctor Who, and there is a very good reason why Catherine Tate (Donna) is leaving after just one series. Much like Martha, her exit has been planned right from the off, though the big difference is Donna will turn out to be a pretty nasty piece of work, which is why the finale features the return of Captain Jack, Sarah Jane Smith, Martha Jones and Rose Tyler.

In addition, the website claims that David Tennant will be leaving the series and that the Doctor will regenerate during the last few minutes of the 2009 Christmas Special. Apparently, for the last few months. filming has been well underway on the four specials, the first of which will be the 2008 Christmas Special followed by two specials in the year and ending with the 2009 Christmas special, which is in its final six weeks of production now. This means that Tennant will have ‘officially’ left the series in just two weeks time, when he finishes filming the final moments of the 2009 Christmas Special.

Although SciFi Pulse is a rather reliable source, please take it all with a pinch of salt until there is any official word from the BBC.
