The Flood Gates Are Open . . . .

Welcome all once again to a blog known as It has been a while since some real news has been posted here, regarding the series, its actors or its upcoming spin off AshesToAshes. The later being Ashes To Ashes with good reason, I've dedicated another blog to it ( Well the news drought is officially over, with news coming in from the BBC about the final 3 episodes of Doctor Who.

Yes Doctor Who, why would he report on that here? Well as regular visitors to would know, John Simm (aka: our beloved Sam Tyler) is about to return to our screens as 'The Master' the Doctors' arch-nemesis. John's character has been mentioned all the way through Series 3 so far, but not as the Master. The Master is using the guise of 'Harold Saxon', a political candidate in the UK elections.

Saxon's character has been in communication with Martha Jones' (the Doctors current companion) mother throughout Series 3, in an attempt to discredit the Doctor. Each communication between Martha and her Mother has resulted in a war of words. Mrs Jones has been manipulated into believing that Martha is in danger, by her being with the Doctor. This however, is as far from the truth as possible. The Doctor, though not yet fully over the loss of his previous companion Rose Tyler, would give his life in an instant to save Martha if he had to.

Okay, you now have your background as to why Doctor Who is being covered, now for the news. The BBC has now released episode synopsises for the final 3 episodes for the season, they go as follows . . . . . .

Doctor Who – Utopia Ep 11

7.15-8.00pm BBC ONE

Jack's back! As Captain Jack storms back into the Doctor's life, the Tardis is thrown out of control, to the end of the universe, in tonight's episode of Russell T Davies's Doctor Who. There, they find the savage Futurekind ruling the wilderness, while a lonely Professor tries in vain to save the last of the human race.

David Tennant plays the Doctor and Freema Agyeman plays his companion, Martha Jones. John Barrowman, Rene Zagger and Sir Derek Jacobi guest star.

Doctor Who – The Sound Of Drums Ep 12
Saturday 23rd June 2007
7.15-8.00pm BBC ONE

Harry Saxon becomes Prime Minister, and his reign of terror begins, in the penultimate episode of Russell T Davies's Doctor Who. This is only the start of his ambitions, however, as he announces mankind's first contact with an alien race, the Toclafane. An audacious plan, spanning the whole of time and space, begins to close around the Earth.

David Tennant plays the Doctor and Freema Agyeman plays his companion, Martha Jones. John Barrowman and John Simm guest star.

Doctor Who – Last Of The Time Lords Ep 13
Saturday 30th June 2007
7.10-7.55pm BBC ONE

Earth has been conquered and the Master rules supreme, with the Doctor a helpless prisoner, in the final episode of Russell T Davies's Doctor Who.The entire human race has been reduced to slavery, as the mighty warships of a new Time Lord Empire rise from the ashes. Only Martha Jones can save the world...

David Tennant plays the Doctor and Freema Agyeman plays his companion, Martha Jones. John Barrowman and John Simm guest star.

Although not mentioned in the Utopia synopsis, it is expected 'Mr Saxon' will again receive a mention. Presumably by 'The Professor', who incidentally happens to be another time lord. It is worthwhile noting that the Doctor himself was referred to as the 'Professor' by Ace, during his sixth incarnation played by Sylvester McCoy. Could it be that the Doctor is about to meet himself in this episode? This question will be answered within the next 24 hours.

So once again Martians, we will be treated to Johns presence on screen. For the time being, it looks like John is about to take temporal acting to the next level. I am sure he won't disappoint. 'Til next time Martians, peace and remember the immortal words of Australian Dance Act Rogue Traders, 'So here it comes, the sound of drums' . . . . .
