Welcome!

Welcome to Tardis Point News. This blog is no longer running, as I started watching Parks and Recreation and am still mourning over the cancellation of Eureka. Don't stop watching Doctor Who though, which is and always will be the best TV show ever.

Record Ratings for CBBC and 800th Post!

BARB has released the official figures for parts 1 and 2 of Death of the Doctor, aired on CBBC on the 26th and 27th of October. They both attracted record breaking viewing figures for the CBBC channel. Part 1 attracted 0.92 million viewers, while part 2 attracted 0.96 million. The second episode of Sarah Jane's Alien Files, aired after part 1, 0.388 million viewers.

I keep forgetting when I post these, but this is my 800th post! 136 days since my 700th, quite a bit longer than that of 600-700 but kind of average-slow for each 100 since the start. More on that through the links to 700. I'd like to thank Vortex who said back on my 400th "I look forward to the next 400!" Well here it is! Here's to the next 800!!

Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner Collider Interview

Collider has had an exclusive interview with Russell T Davies and Julie Gardner, on the next series of Torchwood. A few small new details have been mentioned.

"The ambition is to shoot in Los Angeles, but that is yet to be confirmed. Any place can double up as a number of places. There will be scenes set in Washington, certainly, but we won’t go to Washington to shoot."

"Torchwood will have been off-air for two years, so I think it will feel like two years have passed," he explained. "The script isn't that specific about it, but I think that two-year gap feels right."


Click here to read the full interview. Torchwood: The New World will air next Summer.
