They haven't even started filming Torchwood yet so its just 'in the Autumn' at the moment.

Doctor Who is looking to start on March 24th. David Tennant said "march" in a recent interview and the current issue of Doctor Who Magazine says the *next* issue of Doctor Who Magazine will preview the first episode of S3. The way they usually do those previews for all the episodes being transmitted between issues and that implies that 3.1 will be transmitted before the next issue is out on March 29th but that 3.2 won't be on until *after* March 29th.

Which, assuming it's on a Saturday, suggests March 24th for 3.1.

Ooh so a bit over 6 weeks for Doctor Who? It was March last year wasn't it? So that date does sound about right to me. I can't wait. :D

I really like that actually, having watched Torchwood and SGA finish for the season I get to relax before the Doctor Who fandom takes me over again. *I am exhausted* :p

Same goes for me re the biggie on March 13th: farewell to SG1. Not sure just over a week will be long enough for me to recover my sci fi mojo.

Torchwood is supposedly causing some problems over at the BBC which is sidelining SJA and there's a possibility that Torchwood itself will be put back to early 2008, but theres nothing been said for definate just yet.

Doctor Who is apparently starting on the 30th March. It was originally planned to start 24th March but BBC1 will be showing England's European Championship match against Israel.

Not too long now!

Why is Torchwood delayed until 2008?!! What 'problems' is it causing? 10+ months wait for the new season is shocking!! And by the time it does air, it will be well over a YEAR since season one completed in the UK. Now is it just me or does that sound completely ridiculous?

No, it's not just you. My jaw hit the floor when I read that.

It turns out that the production problems for Torchwood caused a delay to SJA of... one week.

Wow.

Anyway, it also looks like the move to Jan 08 was just a ratings decision. The BBC can move shows around the year like an american network would around days of the week. Apparantly, having TW run through Christmas week hurt the ratings and they've decided that it would be best served by a straight run from January.

I suspect, as well, that now that they've got three flavours of Who on the go they're mapping out the best way to use them. They may have decided that SJA works better as an Autumn show and so moved TW to Winter, with Who itself staying in the Spring.

It's a long wait, sure, but I'd really prefer to wait an extra few months to watch something that's been done well, instead of getting a rushed job sooner.
