'Time Crash' is a mini-episode of Doctor Who, broadcast on BBC One as part of the 2007 appeal for the children's charity 'Children in Need' on 16 November 2007. It was written by Steven Moffat and starred David Tennant and Peter Davison as the Doctor.

The episode depicts a humorous encounter between the Doctor's fifth and tenth incarnations, played by Davison and Tennant respectively. "Time Crash" was a ratings success, with a viewership of 10.9 million and a 45% share of the total television audience that night, making it both the most watched portion of the 2007 Children in Need special and the most watched Doctor Who episode since the show's 2005 revival.

The next episode of Dr. Who is the 2007 Christmas special: "Voyage of the Damned" to be broadcast on BBC One at 6:50pm on 25 December 2007. Then we must await season four!

David Tennant is confirmed to star through to 2009. However, during the latter half of 2008, Tennant is committed to a Royal Shakespeare Company production of Hamlet. After the 2008 Christmas Special, three Bank Holiday specials have been commissioned to air throughout 2009. The programme will then return in 2010 with a fifth full series.

Russell T Davies has suggested that the programme is expected to follow this pattern, of full series interspersed with occasional year-long breaks, for some time into the future.

The Doctor will have three companions in the fourth series: Catherine Tate will reprise her role as Donna Noble, who was first introduced in "The Runaway Bride", for all 13 episodes; Freema Agyeman (Martha) will return mid-season for five episodes, and Billie Piper will return as Rose Tyler for three episodes. Agyeman will also appear in three episodes of Torchwood.

In the Doctor Who Confidential episode for "The Sound Of Drums", Davies stated that it had always been his intention to bring back classic icons of Doctor Who one step at a time: Daleks in series 1, Cybermen in series 2, and the Master in series 3. He has also stated that he is not finished and will continue reviving villains from the original series.

Agyeman would make an AWESOME addition to Torchwood.

Preferably replacing Gwen.

After watching the first series I was left with the feeling of "God! aren't they just a bunch of Prats!"

One aspect I both like and dislike. The fact they aren't friends. they are just co-workers.

Has there been confirmation on a second series?

Yes, Gwen is a bit off for the show (IMHO) -- I can't wait to see how they incorporate Agyeman into the show!

As for season 2 of Torchwood... read all about it from:

Torchwood bursts back on our screens in mid January, this time premiering on BBC Two. And this time it's bigger and bolder with more fun, adventure and excitement for the alien-fighting team.

Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), Gwen (Eve Myles), Owen (Burn Gorman), Toshiko (Naoko Mori) and Ianto (Gareth Lloyd-Davies) return as the investigators delving into the alien underworld of modern day Cardiff.

In response to audience demand, younger fans will now have the opportunity of watching a specially edited pre-watershed repeat.

Roly Keating, Controller BBC TWO, says: "We're delighted that Torchwood is joining BBC TWO. We know from the success and popularity of Heroes that there's a growing appetite for smart, high-quality, sci-fi drama on the channel so Torchwood is a perfect fit.'

"I'm also pleased to announce that, due to popular demand from families and younger viewers, we will be showing a special pre-watershed repeat so everyone can enjoy the new series."

Making a special guest appearance in the first episode is James Marsters as Captain John, who starred as Spike, the punk-goth vampire in Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel. He and Captain Jack go way back and have "history". When he appears through the Rift under Cardiff looking for Captain Jack not only does he disrupt Captain Jack's homecoming but also the whole team, city and world are suddenly placed in danger.

The new series promises an exhilarating mixture of adventure, heartbreak, humour and surprise and pushes the team's resolve and friendships as never before.

Firmly rooted in urban life of 21st century Cardiff, Torchwood's investigations into alien activity give the team glimpses of the 51st Century and World War One. They encounter alien sleeper cells; save a stranded creature from human exploitation; meet a tragic soldier from World War One and encounter a memory thief who exposes long forgotten secrets among the entire team.

During the run Alan Dale (Ugly Betty, The O.C, Lost and The West Wing) makes a star appearance. Another familiar face among the special guest stars is Doctor Who's companion Martha Jones (Freema Agyeman) who appears half way through the series. Richard Briers, Nerys Hughes and Ruth Jones (Gavin and Stacey) also appear in various roles.

Russell T Davies says: "This series pushes the Torchwood team further than ever before. They are joined by some incredible guest stars who are really going to cause waves. It's adventurous, thrilling and packed full of surprises."

Torchwood, which was shot in HD and will also be shown on the BBC HD channel, is filmed in and around Cardiff by BBC Wales.

BBC Wales Controller Menna Richards says: "The first series of Torchwood was a huge hit with audiences. We're extremely proud that it's produced in Wales.

"And its success is a reflection of the huge wealth of talent and creativity that exists here.

"We're delighted that it's returning to our screens for another series full of action, humour and excitement."
