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.
