SFX Issue 168

The Fourth Series of New Doctor Who Won’t Hit our Screens Until Earlier Next Month But the Latest Issue of SFX Was Able to Hit our Shelves Earlier Today with its One Hundredth and Sixty Eighth Issue. This Issue has the Second Part of a Competition for all Lucky Who Fans to Possibly Win a Life Size Dalek, Based on Dalek Sec from Army of Ghosts / Doomsday and Daleks in Manhattan / Evolution of the Daleks Who Was in Charge of the Deadly Cult of Skaro. Also in the One Hundredth and Sixty Eighth Issue is a Interview with Head Writer Russell T Davies Being Interviewed on Such Topics as the Casting of Catherine Tate, the Real Reason Rose Will Return Near the End of Series Four and a Certain Name Change with a Secret Organisation. Thanks you to Outpost Gallifrey for the Information About the One Hundredth and Sixty Eighth Issue of SFX.Doctor Who Executive producer Russell T Davies has spoken exclusively to SFX about the future of Doctor Who.

The show returns this Spring for a fourth series, and will encore as four specials in 2009 before returning for a fifth full series in 2010. While there has been no official comment on the future of Doctor Who beyond that, Davies reveals that the establishment of this transmission pattern will help to ensure the show's longevity.

"Doctor Who is now one of the BBC's biggest flagship shows," he tells the magazine. "And this sort of pattern will guarantee it being on air for twenty years. It's no good looking at that American pattern of making seven years if you're lucky - that's just not going to work. Who wants it to die after seven years? It's much bigger than that. It needs looking after, in the sense that it needs pauses, it needs its legend revamping every so often. If you build these pauses in now and say this will always happen, that's part of the plan now - it's literally a twenty year plan, which can't be guaranteed, because different people will be in charge in years to come - but if you present them with something rock solid, that is working, and has a unique transmission pattern that shouldn't be interfered with, then it will stay.

"In the interview Davies also tackles such topics as the casting of Catherine Tate, the rise of the online critic and the true story behind the return of Billie Piper. In addition, he confirms that UNIT, the fictional military organisation returning to the show in the new series, is now the Unified Intelligence Taskforce, and not the United Nations Intelligence Taskforce as it was previously known.

The full interview is in SFX 168, on sale across the UK on Wednesday 12 March.

The Doctor, upsets some cinema goers . . . .

Over at ICWales.co.uk, reports have come in over the cinema advertising for Doctor Who's Series 4. Apparently the BBC with its advertising campaign for the show, have spent close to £500,000 promoting the award-winning series to movie goers. Many disgruntled licence payers have now attacked the BBC over this move, stating that it is a waste of money.

A fair enough call really, the show is one of the highest rated programs in the UK. So why is this a necessary expense? Surely with the series in its current winning position, that money could be better utilized elsewhere. An additional episode, a longer Christmas Special or just simply more special effects come to my mind at least.

A viewer expressed his disgust at the spending, after contacting the BBC Radio 4 Feedback show stating "The BBC budget was meant for programming not advertising" and that "these budgets are already under pressure". Jackie Brandreth head of brand at the BBC, has defended this spending. Stating that the corporation always spent a small proportion on its “off air” activities, and that this was an attempt to reach younger audiences. Jackie also said, “The cinema is a pilot project to assess whether this is a good medium to talk to these younger audiences.”

A BBC spokesman said the cinema project had cost less than £500,000. How much less I guess we really all wonder now, £499,999.99? What are your feelings on the matter? I personally enjoyed the trailer, but feel that the money could have been better spent elsewhere. Please feel free to comment on the post.

He has solved mysterious on spacestations and stopped invasions spearheaded by starships. He has been held prisoner in space, escaped from the moon, witnessed the arrival of the Sycorax and the crash landing of a space pig...More than anyone else, the Doctor has seen the development of space travel between countless worlds.

In this stunningly-illustrated book, "Doctor Who" historian Justin Richards documents the amazing story of Earth's ventures into space, examines the many alien fleets who have paid Earth a visit, and explores the other starships and spacestations that the Doctor has encountered on his many travels...

Major Changes?

Sci Fi Pulse is currently claiming that some major changes are on the way for Doctor Who and Torchwood. These changes effect both of these shows greatly and in my own eyes seem like very stupid ideas and cannot be completely believed until there is a confirmation by the BBC. Highlight below to read about the changes SCI FI Pulse are claiming. Thanks To WhovianNet for this information:

The website claims that both Burn Gorman (Owen) and Naoko Mori (Tosh) will be leaving Torchwood for its third series. John Barrowman (Captain Jack) will also be stepping down, and will return to the show but only 'in a recurring capacity'. Freema Agyeman (Martha) will make her final appearance in Doctor Who in Series Four and will be returning to Torchwood full time for Series 3.A third series of Torchwood has been commissioned, but currently only 5 episodes have been confirmed. These changes in the format mean that the third series of Torchwood will be able to be shown in a Saturday night slot, usually occupied by Doctor Who, and producers are looking to Torchwood to act as a buffer between the main series of Doctor Who.Now onto Doctor Who, and there is a very good reason why Catherine Tate (Donna) is leaving after just one series. Much like Martha, her exit has been planned right from the off, though the big difference is Donna will turn out to be a pretty nasty piece of work, which is why the finale features the return of Captain Jack, Sarah Jane Smith, Martha Jones and Rose Tyler.In addition, the website claims that David Tennant will be leaving the series and that the Doctor will regenerate during the last few minutes of the 2009 Christmas Special. Apparently, for the last few months. filming has been well underway on the four specials, the first of which will be the 2008 Christmas Special followed by two specials in the year and ending with the 2009 Christmas special, which is in its final six weeks of production now. This means that Tennant will have 'officially' left the series in just two weeks time, when he finishes filming the final moments of the 2009 Christmas Special.

On Children in Need night! We should really bring those Rastons back one day, they were brilliant...”

“I hope so,” laughs Terrance Dicks, the writer of the story, “there’ll be a few quid in it for me!” Meanwhile, writer Steven Moffat is full of praise for Pete Tyler’s death in 2005’s Father’s Day (“just chilling, and tragic and unforgettable”) while fellow scribe Paul Cornell raves over Harrison Chase’s grisly demise in 1976’s The Seeds of Doom – “Just gorgeous.
