50th Anniversary Will Be Huge!!!

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has insisted that celebrations for the show's 50th anniversary will be "huge".

The writer told TV Line that 2013 will be "an amazing year" for fans of the sci-fi drama.

Moffat explained: "I've got various plans, but all I can say emphatically is it will be huge. There's lot of decisions we're making that are about making all that possible. It'll be amazing."

Moffat also confirmed that plans for the anniversary extend beyond a one-off special episode.

"It won't be just one thing, we'll be doing lots of stuff," he hinted. "The plans are quite extensive, and changing all the time. Oh my God, we will hit that year very, very hard indeed."

However, Moffat added that his ideas for 2013 are still at a very early stage of development.

"It's so far in the future, [so] it's only a set of notions," he said.

Doctor Who star Matt Smith recently revealed that he is keen to film an episode featuring multiple Doctors for the 50th anniversary.

Doctor Who will return to BBC America in the US on August 27 and will likely air on the same day on BBC One in the UK.

Torchwood May Not Have A Future??!!

Starz CEO Chris Albrecht has revealed that Torchwood may not be picked up for another season.

Albrecht told reporters at the TV Critics tour that the sci-fi drama's future is dependant on the schedule of series creator Russell T. Davies.

"Torchwood is not one of the shows we went into thinking about a yearly return," he explained. "It's about Russell T. Davies [because] he has a lot of things on his plate. If Torchwood is at the top of his list, that will effect the future of Torchwood."

Davies is currently developing a new drama series named Cucumber with Showtime, it was announced last month.

However, the showrunner previously told Digital Spy that he was having second thoughts about leaving Torchwood.

"I say [I'll quit] at the beginning of every year and then I get to the end [of the series] and I love it again," he explained. "So I don't know. It is time that I moved on and did something else, but we'll just see how well [Torchwood: Miracle Day] does."

RTD Seriously needs to make up his mind and figure out what he wants to do! Either hand over the reigns to someone else or commit to this, I mean come on the ones that suffer are the fans here!!

The Doctor Can Never Be In Torchwood

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has said that The Doctor will never appear in Torchwood.

The Sherlock writer argued that the Time Lord - currently played by Matt Smith - would not be an appropriate addition to the more adult spinoff series, but teased that John Barrowman's Captain Jack Harkness could continue to appear in both programs.

"The Doctor could never go to Torchwood," Moffat told TVLine. "[Torchwood executive] Russell [T Davies] and I both agree on that. Doctor Who has a tremendous relationship with children in Britain. They'd want to watch Torchwood then, and it's not really a children's show."

Moffat further teased that he had planned for Captain Jack to cameo in Doctor Who's most recent episode, 'A Good Man Goes To War'.

"I'd have [brought back Captain Jack] for 'A Good Man Goes To War', but John was busy doing Miracle Day... When we've got a good story, we'll do it. You can't just bring somebody back and say, 'That's a story'.

"I won't be thinking, 'How do you bring Captain Jack back?' I'll be thinking, 'You know what this needs? We need to bring Jack back for it'."

Barrowman previously declared that he would return to Doctor Who "at the drop of a hat". He revealed at Comic-Con last week that he would love a role on Doctor Who's 50th anniversary in 2013.

There is More to River Song Then Meets The Eye!!

Doctor Who star Karen Gillan has promised that the revelation surrounding River Song's true identity will be explored in future episodes.

The actress told Assignment X that River's unveiling as Amy Pond's daughter Melody will have some "weird" consequences.

"That's going to be really fun, considering their relationship now and the big revelation," she said. "We'll see parental instincts coming into play."

Gillan also discussed the return of Doctor Who in August, revealing new details about the mid-series premiere 'Let's Kill Hitler'.

"We have this really cool robot villain that goes back and fixes history," she explained. "So it goes back in time and fixes people that have done [something] wrong in history."

Doctor Who writer Tom MacRae recently revealed that his upcoming episode for the show will focus on Gillan's character Amy, describing 'The Girl Who Waited' as "a real tear-jerker".

No America Move For Doctor Who!! Thank You!!

Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has suggested that the series is unlikely to relocate to America.

Spinoff show Torchwood is now co-produced by the BBC and US cable network Starz, but Moffat told reporters at the Television Critics Association press tour that a similar move is unlikely for its parent series.

Moffat said: "It's entirely about story. I don't think in order to make Doctor Who successful in America you have to make stories set in America."

However, the writer admitted that he had enjoyed filming on location in Utah for recent two-part story 'The Impossible Astronaut / Day of the Moon'.

"I'd like to [film more in America, though] I don't think it's necessary," he said. "But absolutely, we like coming here."

Moffat also revealed that future episodes of Doctor Who will continue to explore the dark side of the show's lead character.

"The dark side of a man who could have caused the end of the universe is considerable," he teased.

Thank You Steven Moffet!! Stay over in Wales where Doctor Who belongs to continue being the best show!!! I'm sorry but I am not all that happy that Torchwood is over here, I think it is ruining it. You bring an iconic series like Doctor Who which is known for being a UK show and the scenery and everything else and you try to Americanize it it will turn to shit! (Does anyone remember that disaster Fox Doctor Who Movie with Paul McGann??) As much as I would love to see the cast over here for conventions and things like that, they need to stay in the UK so what makes Doctor Who can continue to do so and have it run for many more years!! I hate the majority of the shows over here besides a select few, I watch BBC America most of the Like right now I've been watching it while on here blogging watched Doctor Who with David Tennant in "The Girl In The Fireplace" now watching Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. I grew up watching Doctor Who, Monty Python, LoveJoy, All Creatures Great and Small(which stared Peter Davison as Triston who was the 5th Doctor) as well as so many other UK shows! Now my children are being brought up the same Yes I was born in the wrong country!! ahahahaha!!

Could We Get A Multiple Doctor Episode For The Anniversary??!!

Doctor Who star Matt Smith has said that he is keen to film an episode featuring multiple Doctors.

The actor told Newsarama that he would like to appear on-screen with his predecessors for the show's 50th anniversary in 2013.

"That's still over a year away but I'd love for it to happen," he confessed. "How amazing would it be to see Tom Baker [back as the Fourth Doctor]? Can you imagine just seeing him back in the scarf, man? That would be amazing."

Smith continued: "Paul McGann is a great actor, man, and a great Doctor. I say bring back Chris [Eccleston] and Dave [Tennant], too! How many Doctors can we get into one story? Imagine if there were five or six of us in one ep and we could all just look at each other and judge each other."

David Tennant confirmed last week that he would be happy to return to Doctor Who for a guest appearance. However, both Christopher Eccleston and Paul McGann have implied that they would not return to the show.

At this year's Comic-Con in San Diego, Doctor Who writer Toby Whithouse also expressed his desire for a multi-Doctor anniversary episode.

"You'd have to ask [showrunner] Steven [Moffat] that but yeah, why not?" he said. "Come on, let's bring them all back."

Doctor Who will return to BBC America in the US on August 27 and will likely air on the same day on BBC One in the UK.

Patrick Troughton Is Matt Smith's Doctor!!

Doctor Who star Matt Smith has revealed that Patrick Troughton's second incarnation of The Doctor is his favorite.

Smith, who currently plays the Eleventh Doctor, explained that he loves the peculiarity that Troughton brought to the role.

"I love Patrick Troughton. [Troughton's 1967 serial] 'Tomb of the Cybermen' is one of my favorite stories. It's so creepy," he told Newsarama. "What I think is wonderful about Troughton is he's weird and peculiar but he never asks you to find him weird and peculiar. He was a great actor. And I think the Cybermen are as scary as they've ever been in that one story."

Troughton portrayed the renegade Time Lord from 1966 to 1969, facing Cybermen on a moon base and Yetis in the London underground along the way.
