Hey, guess what! Outpost Gallifrey is back! (Or will be very shortly-the news section that is). Click on the website link to get the full details. Yay! :)

Doctor Who took 3 awards home at the National Television Awards (NTA): Best drama, most popular actor-David Tennant, and most popular actress-Billie Piper. I love David's comment as he accepted his award. Congrats to all!

Series 3 casting update: Miranda Raison, from the BBC show Spooks is set to star as a showgirl from 1930s New York in an episode in the new season. Ryan Carnes, from Desparate Housewives is also lined up for a role in the new season. Hmmm...interesting!

According to Unitnews, Torchwood's first two epiosdes did extremely well in the ratings. The repeat on BBC 2 also brought in 2.5 million viewers. Nice! Those who have seen it-what do you think of the show?

First spotted on Sarah Jane.TV (and yes, it would be like me to find a blog dedicated to the Sarah Jane Adventures), a partial transcript with a link to an interview Elisabeth Sladen did for BBC Norfolk. She talks about School Reunion and a little bit about her new show. This is just a short transcript, as more of the interview will be released in December.

TAFN, happy Who watching!
