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 details for Season 3:
179. 310307 by Russell T Davies
Martha Jones is a medical student with an internship at a seemingly ordinary hospital called Royal Hope somewhere in London (Cardiff!) when suddenly all the doctors, nurses and the entire hospital are transported to the moon. She has to contend with the Judoon and a blood sucking plasmavore and some strange patient known as Dr John Smith.
309. The Family of Blood
2 part episode adapted from the book Human Nature by Paul Cornell
Note that this page includes part of the script of the first 10 minutes before the episode has been screened anywhere. Lots of spoilers.
100 trillion years in the future, at the end of humanity, the Doctor, Captain Jack and Martha encounter a stranger known only as The Professor. The Professor regenerates at the end of the episode into someone we know. Can you guess who?
The Doctor has an encounter with Captain Jack which probably includes a fight. The Doctor is upset that Jack is alive, he has trouble dealing with someone who should be dead.
Captain Jack returns for episodes 11 to 13
Harry Saxon becomes Prime Minister, and his reign of terror begins, in the penultimate episode of Russell T Davies's Doctor Who. This is only the start of his ambitions, however, as he announces mankind's first contact with an alien race, the Toclafane. An audacious plan, spanning the whole of time and space, begins to close around the Earth.
Don't read any further unless you want to read SERIOUS spoilers for the final episode.
Voyage of the Damned
188. 251207 - 40X 1h Christmas Special by Russell T Davies
The Titanic crashes into the TARDIS just as it is dematerialising. The Doctor finds that time is being manipulated by some spikey aliens called Porgs and he gets the help of a young waitress aboard the Titanic. It is about to leave on its maiden voyage so the adventure will probably continue until the ship strikes the iceberg. Hmm. Does this mean that the iceberg was really a space ship or that the invasion of these aliens actually caused the ship to crash? Can't wait!
Stars Hugh Grant as a Villain and Kylie Minogue as the Doctor's companion. Kylie Minogue is currently in Cardiff. Filming began in June.
