Executive Producer for Doctor Who - Julie Gardener - has given us some insight into the four Doctor Who Specials to air in 2009. She believes the two-year gap and fans having to wait until 2010 for another full series a, "marvellous thing." You can read what she had to say below:
"Our main motivation for giving Doctor Who a break is that we want the audience to remember how much they love it," she said. "Come 2010, we want people to be cheering its return. We are making four one-hour specials. The first, which we’ve already filmed, will go out this Christmas. The next will go out the following Easter. The other specials have yet to be scheduled, although one will definitely be on at Christmas 2009."There are also rumours that one of the specials will be set in Egypt, and that one will air on Halloween.
