The Parting of the NTAs

It wasn't a particularly good night for Doctor Who at the NTAs, where it lost both categories. Moffat's Sherlock also lost in both categories. Some say it's because of the quality of the show, some say it's due to a lack of interest. What do you think?

Russell T excited about Torchwood 4
"The budget's bigger than before and there's going to be a lot of surprises in store," he said. "One thing I've quite enjoyed is the little jokes in the show about Brits feeling lost in America, and Americans not knowing where Wales is."

More Torchwood details revealed

The BBC have revealed that Torchwood will be called 'Miracle Day' instead of the previous title, 'The New World.'

The series will be centred around a global problem where nobody is able to die.

"One day, nobody dies. All across the world, nobody dies. And then the next day, and the next, and the next. People keep aging - they get hurt and sick - but they never die. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It's said that in four months' time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can't be a natural event - someone's got to be behind it."

The series will air on July 1st 2011.
