Dave Thiel just sent me this, plucked from Outpost Gallifrey:
At tonight’s BAFTA screening of “The Parting of the Ways,” the final episode of this first series of “Doctor Who,” producer Russell T Davies and BBC executive Jane Tranter announced that a third series of the show has now been commissioned, including a second Christmas special. They also noted that Billie Piper (Rose) would be in all the episodes of the second series, although whether she would return for the third was apparently still being discussed, and that John Barrowman (Captain Jack) will be returning to the series next year but will not appear in the first block of episodes. (Says our correspondent, Barrowman was also in the audience at the screening, and when Davies announced his return, he yelled out, “And I’m willing to get naked again, too!”)
Also mentioned at the BAFTA screening was a title for this year’s Christmas special: The Christmas Invasion. That, and the season two block of thirteen episodes, will go into production in July. More details as we get them.
Lemme get a “hell yeah” from all the Doctor Who fans in the house!
