I guess it has something to do with the fact that "Doctor Who" is a UK product, meaning they get it first before we do.

I've got an interesting idea here on that.
The Doctor a few times (in "Dalek" and "The Parting of the Ways" in particular) implies or hints ar that he's responsible for not only the Daleks' defeat but the destruction of the Time Lords in the Time War as well.

Now if they bring some more of Time Lords back (others as well as The Master) they want nothing to do with him at all. This explains why the Doctor doesn't feel them in his mind anymore it's a form of punishment to be exiled from his race for all time. Or they might have orders to kill him on site. This could make a season where the Doctor is sort of a fugitive on the run and is trying to find a way to clear his name and out run his his own people who are out for his blood.

Either way it would be very interesting to see what happens.

I'm just going to miss Billie Piper though. :( :sad:

Ten signs BBC's hit Dr Who spin-off
28th February 2007, 16:59 WST

Sizzling British sci-fi drama Torchwood, a Doctor Who spin-off about American air force renegade Captain Jack Harkness, has been licensed to Network Ten by BBC Worldwide.

The adventure-packed series follows a team of global investigators led by the John Barrowman-played Harkness, who first appeared on Doctor Who in 2005.

The department named Torchwood is dominated by bright young characters who make the most of alien technology which they scavenged from an alien wreckage to fight crime.

The first episode of Torchwood was the most watched non-sport program ever to air on a British digital channel when it was shown on BBC Three.

The program is directed straight at Ten's target 16- to 39-year-old audience, it's sexy, clever and fast-paced.

The Australian network has already shown great faith in the show by committing to a second series, which is yet to be completed.

Ten head of programming Beverly McGarvey said: "Torchwood brings a sexy new twist to the traditional cop show genre that we at Ten are thrilled to have as part of our 2007 slate".

Torchwood, written by Doctor Who, Casanova, and Queer as Folk's Russell T Davies has now been sold to nine countries.

It was named after an anagram which was used to protect the secrecy of early Doctor Who roughcuts.

Oh sure we're going to get it in Australia ... but i'm betting by the end of the season it'll be shafted to a late night time slot.

uTorrent, you are my best friend.

I am so glad that the DW DVDs are treated so well. I love getting heaps of bonus materials that I will actually enjoy... it's almost half the excitement of getting another DW DVD :) I loved the features on the Genesis of the Daleks set.

Darth Bombshell wrote:Also, has anyone managed to find "The Invasion" and "The Sontaran Experiment" anywhere?


I'm not sure if you have them in Canada, but I would check Best Buy. That's the only "physical" store in my area that I know of that carries Doctor Who DVDs. I had to drive half an hour just to pick up Series 1 & 2 when S2 was released, because they were on sale -- and the only place I could get them right away.

I usually order from DeepDiscount. Formerly called DeepDiscountDVD and DeepDiscountCD, they merged their two sites into one and added books to their store. I love the free shipping, though it can take a week or more to show up. And my wishlists are messed up since I forgot to update my DDCD log in email address, and now I have two accounts there. Argh.

I did go to Best Buy, and Future Shop, and HMV. And I wasn't able to find them at any of those places. Then again, my area seems to be notorious in getting DVD sets late (for example, even though it was released on Boxing Day, I have yet to find any store that carries the Volume 1 New Adventures of He-Man set), so I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't see it till around June or something.

And point of fact, I've been able to find the new series sets at all three of those locations. I've also seen "The Beginning" set and "City of Death".

"Mark of the Rani?" I just ordered that from DeepDiscount... I haven't seen it in ages. I'm trying to get at least one story per Doctor before concentrating on the 4th Doctor stories (my favorite Doctor). Now I just need to pick a 2nd Doctor story before I end up getting the "New Beginnings" set or "The Leisure Hive." I'm thinking "The Mind Robber" will be my next buy.

Good news for Canucks fans like me, from the Doctor Who Information Network by way of Outpost Gallifrey:

1) SERIES III will be airing in the summer of 2007. June to be exact. An official start date and time was not provided, but we assume that it will continue along in the Monday night 8pm time slot.

2) THE RUNAWAY BRIDE "may air" this summer also. Again, I assume it would precede the SERIES III premiere.

and finally

3) TORCHWOOD will air in the FALL of 2007. Once again the assumption is that it will air AFTER Series III's run has concluded.

You know, for 40 odd years Australia was like the 2nd biggest fan base for DW outside of England.

And yet those idiots at the ABC are still twiddling their thumbs over whether to pick up DW or not, while markets like Canada and the US, markets which didn't have as much exposure to original Who, have already had rights to this year's season secured.

AND THEY WONDER WHY TV FANS LIKE ME DOWNLOAD FROM THE INTERNET! :-x

Well, I can't speak for the US, but the fact that Canada gets it before you guys may have something to do with the fact that the CBC helps finance it...
