John Barrowman on Doctor Who 50th anniversary and Torchwood 5

I am not a big fan of Torchwood, but I watched it with pleasure. I am curious and I wanted to know what the show has to offer: it is good, but not close to Doctor Who (from my point of view).

The next video is the perspective of John Barrowman about the Doctor Who 50th anniversary and Torchwood 5th season. I did not now about the new Torchwood series, but it looks interesting enough to watch it (if and when it’s going to be released).

Steven Moffat interview on BBC Breakfast, december 2011

One of the subject of the interview was the Doctor Who Christmas special:  The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe. It is sure that some changes will be done in the characters and companions, but there are only a few known data: Amy and Rory will leave the show during season 7 (to return in the future) and Matt Smith will leave Doctor Who at the end of the season.

You should know (if you don’t know already) that Doctor Who was the most downloaded show in America last year.

One other subject was the Sherlock Holmes series and the new (let’s call it so for the moment) competition between the shows. Sherlock Holmes have been already broadcast in 180 different countries, but it’s a long road until it will become a real rival to Doctor Who.

Karen Gillan about leaving Doctor Who at The Graham Norton Show, BBC America

Just few nights ago Karen Gillan spoke about her confirmed departure from Doctor Who, the longest-running and highest-rated sci-fi series in history, during her interview on The Graham Norton Show (BBC America).

Some time during the season 7 of Doctor Who will stop being the Doctor’s companion, but she will return to the show in the future.

Karen Gillan on Graham Norton Radio 2 (29 Oct 2011)

It’s official now (from some time now) that Amy and Rory will leave Doctor Who series during the next season (season 7). Karen Gillan appeared on October 29th 2011 on Graham Norton’s Radio 2 show and she talked about that. During the interview she said that she will welcome the next Doctor Who companion with open arms when her time is up on the show.

She also said: “I know the time is going to come when Rory and Amy have to leave. It’s inevitable and that will make me really, really sad. But that’s the nature of the show and what’s so good about it. What keeps it exciting is the fact that it’s reinvented all the time with new people. I think that’s a really great part of the show, so I will welcome the new companion with open arms.”

It seems she will return to the show sometime in the future, but it not know (to the public, at least) when. I can only hope it’s as soon as possible. 😀
