DW and Torchwood news  
Okay two things that were pretty much confirmed today...

1. Torchwood will be showing in the New Year (i.e. Jan 2008). I'm not too bothered about this as I have Strictly Come Dancing and SGA to squee over during Sept-Dec. Maybe Top Gear too. It means TW will fill my Jan/Feb tv dry spot.

2. John Simm has apparently (according to the bit at the end of an interview in the Independent) been cast as The Master for the third series of DW. For me this is probably the best casting. I clearly picked up a poor idea of the character from watching the show when I was younger because he's unfortunately become a bit pantomime villain in my mind - a bit cheesy, a bit OTT.... Hopefully Simm will bring him much more down to Earth and make him much more believable.

I loved the Master! Anthony Ainley was just way cool. And it was so obvious that the Master and the Doctor (fifth) were shagging every single chance they got.

The big question is: Will John Simm wear his leather coat of win? Will his have a goatee? Ack! Too many questions!!!!

I think it'd be really amusing to make Gene The Master. Then I might be interested in the character. Although fanboys up and down the country would explode.

But Gene!Master would be too busy beating up nonces for evil world domination.
