While season 4 is in production, the BBC is making sure you don't worry about season 5...or are they??

Doctor Who to return for fifth series in 2010.

Quote :
After months of media speculation, the BBC can confirm that the BAFTA award-winning Doctor Who will return for a fifth series in Spring 2010.

Viewers are in for a treat this Christmas, as a special episode starring David Tennant and Kylie Minogue will be broadcast on BBC One in December 2007.

Series Four, which went into production in July 2007, will hit UK screens in Spring 2008, followed by a special episode for Christmas 2008.

In 2009 Doctor Who will return with three specials starring David Tennant, with Head Writer, Russell T Davies.

The full-length fifth series will transmit in 2010.

Jane Tranter, Controller, BBC Fiction, says: "Doctor Who is one of the BBC's best loved and most successful dramas. Its journey over the past three series has been one of the most ambitious and exciting that we have had, and I'm delighted to be able to confirm not only three exciting specials for 2009, but a fifth series in 2010. "

Menna Richards, Controller, BBC Wales, says: "The success of Doctor Who is a fantastic tribute to the dedication and expertise of the production team at BBC Wales who have worked on the project from the outset. This announcement is marvellous news for all involved, and more importantly for the programme's amazing fan base and audience. BBC Wales is looking forward to producing the fifth series."

Following the critically acclaimed season three finale, the BBC has announced that Catherine Tate is set to return to the TARDIS for the complete 13-week run of series four, reprising her role as Donna from the 2006 Christmas special.

Freema Agyeman, who won praise for her portrayal of Martha Jones in series three, is also set to return mid series four.

Any one else curious about this line...
In 2009 Doctor Who will return with three specials starring David Tennant, with Head Writer, Russell T Davies.

3 out of the 13 week run? OR did they only sign 3 eps and not the full season?

OR is this their reference to those begging for RTD to leave that he will be in a limited capacity?

OR is this their way of saying Tennant will be leaving in the 5th season?

OR is this just overuse of the word OR*??




*OR seems to never be used alone. Either always has to make an appearance and show him up by getting used first. This is for all the OR's that never got to make it without either!!! (Oookkayy...note to self...caffeine free days are not good days to write any thoughts. Sorry, so sorry.)

supposedly it has to do with Tennant being cast as Hamlet or something. Based on Who's large amount of success maybe the Money factor is becoming an issue? Actors writer wanting bigger cuts? (pure speculation)I think we're safe with David thru 09. Who knows(no pun) after that.

I guess I found my answer...missed this release info on outpost gallifrey news...

Quote :
After the fourth series airs in 2008, David Tennant will continue in the role of the Doctor for a Christmas special at the end of 2008. After that, instead of a full series beginning filming, the production team, with Tennant still in the role, will be working on three Doctor Who specials, led by Russell T Davies, to be shown on BBC1 throughout the year of 2009. A fifth full series is scheduled for 2010, though as BBC News point out, casting is unconfirmed for that far ahead.
