Doctor Who Takes A 'Gap Year'

Doctor Who is taking a 'gap year' between 2008's Season 4 and 2010's Season 5. 2009 will see three Doctor Who *specials* featuring David Tennant and co so the Doc will still be invading our screens!

Tennant has not been confirmed for the 5th Season though - but then it is some time away!

It'll be interesting to see if Torchwood and The Sarah Jane Adventures continue through the 2009 schedule to keep the Whoverse a regular fixture on our screens.

BBC Reveals Doctor Who 'Gap Year' (BBC News Online; Monday 3rd September 2007)

In other news I think I have been infected with a time virus. I keep thinking that I'm in (and writing down on forms) 2008! I've been like this all day!

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH.

Is Sarah Jane actually going to start at some point?

Of course that's also what they said last year.

"Menna Richards, controller of BBC Wales, said: "This announcement is marvellous news for all involved, and more importantly for the programme's amazing fan base and audience."

Umm... maybe I missed something important, but on which particular planet is it "marvellous for the fan base" to reduce from a full season to 3 specials?!
I believe that someone is trying to spit on my cake and call it icing.

It'll hurt, but so might a creeping staleness that's been hard to fight off so far. It'll be good if they regroup and come back stronger; and possibly with a new executive producer...

The worst thing is, they probably won't rest Torchwood. If only they hadn't bothered making it, they probably wouldn't have been so damn tired.
