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:

415 Planet 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:
The Wedding of Sarah Jane
It's finally time for Sarah's timely wedding. The Doctor has been trying to break through a time block in time to prevent the wedding at the right time but this time someone else has time on his hands.
The time manipulating Trickster returns and in a short space of time he has the Doctor trapped outside of time. Clyde, Rani and Luke must race against time to help the timelord to cross into the timestream Sarah and her groom are trapped in, in time to save her and the entire future timeline of Earth. Is it time for some artron energy? Only time will tell.

416 The Waters of Mars
201  151109 by Russell T Davies and Phil Ford.

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.

417 The End of Time Part 1
418 The End of Time Part 2
202  251209 by Russell T Davies

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 5
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!

501. About Time
203 030410 By Steven Moffat
A darker, edgier season with a much older (1000 years old?) 11th Doctor suffering from his loneliness. After redesigning the console room and choosing the older TARDIS exterior (or did it just default?) with the original ambulance sticker, he meets up with Amy who is Scottish and working in London.

502. The Dust of Stars
204 100410 by Neil Gaiman
The Doctor takes Amy on a trip to see a crashed rocket and is discovered by River Song who has never met the Doctor before. The Doctor is immediately tense and nervous and has a lot of difficulty speaking with her, knowing he was there when she died.

503. Scherzo
205 170410 by Rob Shearman
Time continues to splinter throughout the universe and the Doctor and companions fall through a crack into another universe with different rules.

207  010510 by Helen Raynor

506. Fractured Time
507. Merlin
208   150510 by Steven Moffat
People from the Doctor's past return to haunt him. The unstable black hole is causing ruptures in space time, allowing universes to bleed through from alternative realities. There is a real risk of the Doctor being sucked into one permanently.

508. Ice Time
209  290510 by Ben Aaronovitch
The Doctor becomes embroiled in a plot in King Arthur's court in an alternate reality. Unfortunately he is betrayed and trapped in a field of frozen time.

509. The Fans of Death
210  050610 By Steven Moffat
People around the world are being found dead in locked rooms, in places no one would ever be able to get to. The only thing suspicious in the room is an electric fan. Unfortunately, after being trapped in an alternate reality for hundreds of years, the Doctor is in no condition to help. He must rely on his friends and UNIT to battle a new and deadly creature that manipulates metal. Freema Agyeman to guest star.

212 190610 by Haruki Murakami

512. Aliens among us
213 260610 by James Moran

M01 Doctor Who MOVIE
Suggested title "Time War" suggested cinematic release date: 231111
by Russell T Davies, Steven Moffat and Euros Lyn
Starring David Tennant as the Doctor, Billie Piper as Rose, John Barrowman as Captain Jack Harness, Elisabeth Sladen as Sarah Jane Smith and a number of other cameos. Rumoured special guest appearance by Paul McGann as the 8th Doctor and Christopher Eccleston as the 9th Doctor. Set after the episode The Waters of Mars.

Rumoured plot to be about reopening the timewar so Daleks, Cybermen, Sontarans, Ice Warriors and more!

Other notes
It's still rumoured that Jennifer Saunders appears as a temporary Doctor either in the Christmas Special or the Children in Need special. Remember what happened in the first Christmas special when the Doctor lost his hand? Well, other things can happen in that period!

Other notes:
Steven Moffat will be the producer for this season and has said that, firstly, Billie Piper will definitely NOT be in any of the seasons. Secondly, he has not discounted River Song from appearing again and that she knows more than one Doctor. Thirdly, he doesn't plan to bring back any old monsters unless there is a really good story, and that goes for cameos, too. And fourthly, season 5 will be much darker.
