Doctor Who & Torchwood Updates

The News of the World reports that two of the upcoming “Doctor Who” TV specials will reportedly be filmed in America next year.

With the full season being replaced by at least two specials next year, word now comes that these tele-movies will include not just a U.S. setting but a U.S. assistant as well.

Showrunner Russell T. Davies “is determined to go out with a bang and the specials will be explosive – we’re spending much more money on them than normal”.

Meanwhile the BBC have announced that “Torchwood” will have an unusual schedule next year. As previously reported, the third season will be cut from twelve episodes to just five.

Now its reported that these episodes, operating under the moniker ‘Children Of Earth’, will be shown over five consecutive nights on BBC One sometime next spring.
