Doctor Who 2009 Specials Update

By Mark
The picture above was made by me.
In an interview with the Daily Telegraph, Julie Gardner revealed that the second Doctor Who 2009 special will air at Easter. The first of the specials will air this Christmas and the last of the specials will air next Christmas. People are speculating that the third will air at Halloween. Here is a quote from the interview;

"Our main motivation for giving Doctor Who a break is that we want the audience to remember how much they love it," she said. "Come 2010, we want people to be cheering its return. We are making four one-hour specials. The first, which we’ve already filmed, will go out this Christmas. The next will go out the following Easter. The other specials have yet to be scheduled, although one will definitely be on at Christmas 2009."

It is rumoured that one of the hour long episodes will be set in Egypt. Could this mean the return of Sutekh? We'll just have to wait and find out. In other news a teaser trailer for The Sarah Jane Adventures series two was shown tonight after the Doctor Who finale repeat. It is about fifteen seconds long and will be uploaded onto the site tomorrow. What do you think of this news?

    Maybe we'll get more mileage out of our favorite doctor (I mean you, David T), if he gets hooked up with a really good osteopath. He should fly over Ross Keen from New Zealand. (I offer this in the interest of all Who fandom)

    It is a shame that David T. has decided to leave as he has been one of the best Doctors. I hope that this gap in seasons won't spell the end to the growing following both in the UK and Canada/US. Having followed since the first black and white shows it was great to see its come back over the last 4 years. Tony J. B.C. Canada

    Seems to me that the first reason I heard for the irregular episodes was the change of writers not drumming up fan interest. While I was sad that I wouldn't be able to watch a full season of The Doctor, I understood that a transition like that could be difficult. I have to say that the above quote which basically says they are only doing a few specials to make us remember what we love about Dr. Who is rather insulting. I never forgot and while I'm willing to be patient when techincal issues get in the way, I don't enjoy being manipulated. Are they a network or an oil company? Logistics are one thing jerking your fans around for the hell of it is NOT NICE!

Something to say?
