Doctor Who first started in the UK on the 23rd November 1963 and ran continually
until 1989. (There was a test screening of the pilot episode a week previously
in a small area of London but that doesn't count!) Doctor Who continued
in the form of books, stage plays, comics, magazines and audio adventures.
In 1996 a US/UK co-financed telemovie burst onto our screens. It didn't
rate well in the US so a series was never taken up. 2005 and Russell T
Davies got the nod to bring back Doctor Who as a TV series. Woo hoo!
Following are speculations for the specials and season 5:

Complete Season 3
of the Dead
200 110409 by Russell T Davies and Gareth Roberts
While travelling in a bus- the 200 to Victoria - the Doctor and passengers are suddenly transported to another world.
The Doctor does not have his TARDIS so has no way of returning. He has to find a way to fix the bus, keep the band of bus passengers together, and get everyone home, oh and protect everyone from a ravenous hoard of metallic creatures that want to convert everything on the planet to sand. The greater risk, of course, is that the wormhole has been created by the ravenous bug blatter beasts and their next stop is Earth.
Thankfully, the dangerous looking Tritovores are actually friends and give them some help, but the crashed ship holds a deadly secret.
Lady Christina de Souza, an international jewel thief, becomes his companion for this story. Played by Michelle Ryan.
UNIT makes an appearance as does Captain Erisa Magambo, last seen in Turn Left.
NB: Gareth Roberts has said he has taken some ideas from his book The Highest Science.
Some rumours and news for the final 3 and a half (!) 10th Doctor specials below.
The Sarah Jane Adventures:
Waters of Mars
It is the far future. Humans are being taken over by what seems to be living water, at a base on Mars. Like zombies they are hell-bent on killing people with water.
There are also some mini robots that look a bit like Wall-E
The story is set many hundreds of years after the Ice Warriors left Mars or gave it to the humans so there is unlikely to be any Ice Warriors in it. There may be evidence of Ice Warrior civilisations though.
Confirmed that the Ood sigma scene in the final episode is either a flashback or a metaphysical journey. The Doctor is seen wearing the spacesuit he wore in The Impossible Planet and The Satan Pit. In any case, Ood Sigma is not on Mars.
It's nostalgia-fest time and, even though the final episode of season 4 brought everyone back for what seemed to be the absolute last time, the final 10th Doctor episode is likely to do that again. Confirmed sightings of the Master, Wilf, Donna, Sylvia with confirmed attendances of Rose, Jack, Mickey, et al. Rumoured to feature Sarah Jane Smith, a Slitheen, a host of other aliens and a trial in a massive vault of aliens from Doctor Who, ala Star Wars. The Judoon are also likely to be back along with a number of other characters from episodes the 10th Doctor has been in.
The Doctor joins with the Ood and experiences bad dreams in the telepathic communications.
This article says that several Hollywood names have been approached but have turned down the offer to play a major villain linking the 2 telemovies. Hugh Grant was recently approached to star as the villain. Confirmed sighting of Timothy Dalton. Is he the new villain? >
Webmaster's note. Bugger. Now that RTD has chosen The End of Time as the title for the final Tennant story, I'm going to have to change my use of it for the Christmas Special. Oh well. I was only a season out in guessing it!
|2010 Series - Season
13 episodes with Matt Smith! David has confirmed he is leaving in the last Christmas special before 2010 but RTD says he may appear in another special scheduled for Easter, just before Season 5 starts. But will he appear for a cameo in the first episode of Season 5?
Season 5 by Steven Moffat. Starring Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor.
If you've seen the trailer for the new series you'll know these predictions are WAY out! I'll update them soon.
Predictions for season 5 are below. Well, of course these aren't true! But if writers are true-to-form, this could be what we'll get!
