Doctor Who Season 3 Begins March 31


I can't wait. It seems like forever. I'm getting the warm fuzzies :)
Who Gets Fourth Season
The latest incarnation of the iconic British series Doctor Who has been renewed for a fourth season, the BBC announced. At a special preview screening of the first two episodes of season three on March 21 in London, executive producer Russell T. Davies said that he has known about the renewal for a while, but hasn't been allowed to comment on it until now. "Series four is officially existing," Davies told BBC News. "I'm very excited, but we have known for ages."

It was also confirmed at the event that John Simm, who plays time-traveling cop Sam Tyler in the BBC series Life on Mars, will guest-star in the final two episodes of the third season of the new Doctor Who. He will play a mysterious politician known as Mr. Saxon. It has been rumored that Simm's character will be revealed as (spoiler alert!) the Doctor's old nemesis, the Master.

The third season of the new Doctor Who—starring David Tennant as the Doctor and introducing Freema Agyeman as his new companion, Martha Jones—will begin airing in the U.K. on March 31. Davies did not say whether Tennant will return for the fourth season, which is set to air in 2008.
