    Well, that's a bit of refreshing news. I thought we'd have to wait six months to a year to get series two. Fantastic! Can't wait to see how Martha Jones interacts with the team.

    Wait, I just worked out that if we get it a week earlier, then the end of Torchwood (and the start of Doctor Who since they wouldn't let it overlap surely) would be April 16th or something. Surely not that late?!

Something to say?
