Another Industrial Ugly Morning

...but on the other hand, as Matt has recently revealed, Doctor Who's short term future is safe after a fair amount of speculation about RTD and David Tennant.

We get series 4 in Spring 08, 3 feature length specials during 09 (IMO to allow David Tennant to mourn Yorick) and series 5 in spring 10. Over at Outpost Gallifrey a lot of people do seem to think that DT will return for series 5 having committed to the 3 specials.

However, RTD is apparently quoted in The Sun as saying series 3 was "too dark" - whereas I thought its tone was mostly perfect.

Hooray for Doctor Who and its infinite variety and adaptability.

Is it true that Catherine Tate is to be his new girl? At least he won't be able to fall in love with her.

It'd be great if DT stays on for series 5. He's quite an in-demand actor and I didn't think he'd stay beyond series 4, but if they make it flexible enough for him to star in other productions...

Personally, I'd love to see the series go much darker. But if they put me in charge of the whole thing it'd end up being shown at 10pm and get about 6.5 million less viewers.

Welcome back!

That was an obituary too soon, methinks!

I suspected the Tin Drummer had not ceased drumming...
