Yes, I know what you're thinking, that's not a lot. However, when you compare those figures to CBBC's average rating for that time slot is 0.4 million viewers. So SJA Series 2's first episode got almost double the usual!

The BBC Press Office have officially confirmed that the title of the 2008 Christmas special is...
Monday, 22 September 2008
Russell T Davies wrote in his new book, The Writer's Tale, which is composed of emails between RTD and Doctor Who Magazine writer Benjamin Cook: "We've cast Alex Kingston as River Song. Alex Kingston. I bloody love her. Alex Kingston is the Doctor's wife." But he originally wanted Kate Winslet in this role.
About this year's Christmas special, Russell wrote: "It's the Doctor paired with a new Doctor. The best title would be The Two Doctors but maybe not. The New Doctor perhaps? Or the Next Doctor? I quite like the Next Doctor."
Since then, yes, 'The Next Doctor' is the Christmas 2008 special's title and, yep you got it, David Morrisey is the Doctor. But don't think Morrisey is taking over at Christmas because in DWM #400 RTD said that David Tennant is the Doctor in all 5 of the 2009 specials as well and will have a different companion each time.
So, maybe David Morrisey's 11th Doctor will be married to River Song? Who Knows?

This much anticipated collection will include Song Of Freedom, the stirring choral piece that celebrated the defeat of the Daleks in the final episode of the series and proved to be a major hit at the recent Doctor Who Prom."Keep checking back here because as soon as more information of this soundtrack is released, I'll notify you!

Russell T Davies has said in his new book, 'The Writer's Tale', that if it was up to him Russell Tovey (who played Midshipman Alonso Frame in the Xmas07 special, The Voyage of the Damned) would become the 11th Doctor: "Russell Tovey as Midshipman Frame, which is my favourite casting of the lot, because he's going to be huge, that man. He's amazing. I think I'd make him the Eleventh Doctor."

The Sun newspaper do like to tease us Doctor Who fans with possible spoilers! This time they're claiming that the Eighth Doctor, played by Paul McGann, will return in 1 or all of the 2009 specials.
McGann is apparently going to start filming in October or November this year. There are rumours that he will be in a flashback scene "battered from the Time War and shorn of the long hair he had in the film."
An 'insider' said this: “Fans loved Paul’s Doctor and feel he was never given the proper chance to shine. Reference is often made to the Time War which wiped out the Time Lords and this will give them a taste of that.”
What do you think? Please comment.

By Phil Ford, Directed By Joss Agnew
Part Two - Sarah Jane and the gang have only 40 minutes to save Earth as Sontaran Commander Kaagh plots to bring the world's orbiting satellites crashing down on nuclear installations across the world. And Maria's Mum finally gets to the truth from Alan – but will they be in time to save Maria?
The Day Of The Clown
By Phil Ford, Directed By Michael Kerrigan
Part One - New girl in Bannerman Road, Rani Chandra, is being haunted by a sinister clown – does it have anything to do with the local children that have gone missing? When Clyde's friend disappears the trail leads them to a strange circus museum – and the legend of the Pied Piper!
Part Two - Sarah Jane's investigation into Spellman and Odd Bob the Clown takes her to a meteorite at the Pharos Institute. But Spellman's plot to make all of Park Vale's pupils vanish leads Sarah Jane into a confrontation with her own childhood fears in a bid to save Luke.
Sarah Jane Smith is well acquainted with saving the world. An old friend and companion of the Doctor, Sarah Jane has travelled the universe, solving mysteries, tackling monsters and fighting alien foe all the way. Her travelling days may be behind her, but as a journalist with a nose for trouble, Sarah Jane often finds herself on amazing adventures closer to home. With the help of her adopted son, Luke, his best mate Clyde and their new neighbour Rani, along with her sonic lipstick, and the alien computer Mr Smith, she must defend Earth from extraterrestrial threats and monsters.
Luke Smith played by Thomas Knight
14-year-old Luke Smith looks just like any other normal teenage boy, but look closer and you'll see that he's very, very special. Grown by the alien Bane as The Archetype in their plan for world domination, Luke has the brain power of 10,000 people but, as he's only really a year or so old, his understanding of the world around him is sometimes lacking. But he's a fast learner, and his intelligence often proves key in saving the day.
Clyde Langer played by Daniel Anthony
Clyde Langer is 15, confident and the team joker, happiest when taking on aliens and monsters to save the planet. He lives with his mum, loves football, has a flair for art (which he keeps quiet cos it's not always seen as that cool) and has a healthy disrespect for authority. When teamed with Luke's intelligence, Rani's instincts and Sarah Jane's experience, the friends are a force to be reckoned with.
Rani Chandra played by Anjli Mohindra
15, inquisitive, smart and sassy. Wants to be a journalist, a sort of junior Sarah Jane, and thus idolises Sarah Jane just a little and in return, Sarah Jane takes her happily on her investigations. Gets on well with her parents, although she's always embarrassed that her dad is the new Head Teacher at Park Vale. Rani enjoys Luke's company because they're both quite bright and eager to learn. However, she's equally fond of Clyde because he's cool and a bit rebellious, and has charm.
Gita Chandra played by Mina Anwar
Rani's mum is a strong-willed, independent businesswoman, who runs her own flower shop called Bloomin' Lovely. Gita really likes Sarah Jane - she appreciates the fact she wants to help Rani be a journalist. Gita is a lovely person, although she can occasionally be a little overpowering and tends to burst into things uninvited and not take the hint that it's time to leave.
Haresh Chandra played by Ace Bhatti
The new Head Teacher of Park Vale and Rani's dad, he can be prone to slight pomposity, due to the authority at the school. A great cook, he adores Rani and is very pleased that she has befriended Luke Smith, whose intelligence he respects. He's decidedly less impressed by her friendship with Clyde, who he sees as trouble and so always has one watchful eye on his daughter and the other on Clyde.

- John Barrowman, Eve Myles, Gareth David-Loyd, Kai Owen and Tom Price are all going to return as their usual characters.
- Paul Copely as a man called Clem
- Peter Capaldi as Mr Frobisher
- Liz May Brice as Johnson
- Presumably their will be two new TW members to replace Owen and Toshiko, however, a possible new member could be Dr Rupesh Pattenchali (see an image of him HERE), who is a doctor and therefore would fill the role of Owen's.
- The Hub may be destroyed in the first episode
- Dr Rupesh may know all about Torchwood. He and Eve Myles (Gwen) have been seen filming and he explains why he is interested in Torchwood. He also said that he has noticed how much weirder things are in Cardiff.
- The Children of Earth are actually children (as apposed to the people on Earth or when Davros called the Doctor's companions the Children of Time) who seem to get in a trance-like state while chanting: "We, we, we, we, we are, we are, we are, we are, we are coming, we are coming, we are coming, we are coming!" Click HERE to see that.
- The team could be fired from Torchwood, as they seem to be reduced to stealing. Gwen was seen distracting a man on a bench while Rhys stole his laptop (See that HERE). Gwen stole a handbag (See HERE). Ianto and Rhys have a fight to distract someone when Gwen stole they're briefcase (Ianto and Rhys HERE).
- Someone from the government tries to expose Torchwood
