And a Merry Christmas to you all at home ...

TV I think this headline says it all really ... "Second Doctor Who series already in pipeline":
"The BBC has wasted no time in commissioning a Christmas special and second series of its Doctor Who revival, less than a week after the time traveller returned to BBC1 after an absence of 16 years with nearly 10 million viewers.

However, the BBC head of drama commissioning, Jane Tranter, was unable to confirm whether Christopher Eccleston, the ninth doctor, or Billie Piper, who plays his sidekick, would be returning - opening up the possibility that the man with the sonic screwdriver might have to undergo yet another regeneration within a year.

Ms Tranter said she had commissioned the Christmas special and a second series of Doctor Who yesterday - just three days after the sci-fi show began its new 13-part run on BBC1 with 9.9 million viewers, beating off stiff opposition from Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway."
Amazing news, especially considering a Christmas special is in the offering. Would love to see Chris turn to the camera at the end and say those immortal words ... "And a Merry Christmas to you all at home ..." [via]

Updated! This has just been confirmed by the official site. I'm off to eat some mince pies to celebrate. [via]
