Who’s On Fifth?
Well, at last the word is out. The BBC has found a way around David Tennant’s commitments to Shakespeare and Russell T. Davies’ desire to stretch. Both will be back in 2009 for a season-between-seasons consisting of three Doctor Who specials, the last probably being the annual Christmas special. Whereas Torchwood is likely to continue, the official start to the official fifth season will happen in 2010.
No word on if Tennant and Davies will be back for Season Five, but it seems doubtful the Doctor will regenerate during the Christmas Special. Unless Santa Claus is from Gallifrey.
Season Four starts transmitting in the U.K. in 2008, following the second season of Torchwood.
