Dead Air - Cover & Details

BBC Audio have released the cover and synopsis on a new exclusive Doctor Who audio:

DEAD AIR - written by James Goss & read by David Tennant 

 "Hello, I’m the Doctor. And, if you can hear this, then one of us is going to die."

At the bottom of the sea, in the wreck of a floating radio station, a lost recording has been discovered. After careful restoration, it is played for the first time - to reveal something incredible. It is the voice of the Doctor, broadcasting from Radio Bravo in 1966. He has travelled to Earth in search of the Hush - a terrible weapon that kills, silences and devours anything that makes noise - and has tracked it to a boat crewed by a team of pirate DJs. With the help of feisty Liverpudlian Layla and some groovy pop music, he must trap the Hush and destroy it - before it can escape and destroy the world…

 
Doctor Who: Dead Air is on from 4th March at all good CD stores priced £9.99 per copy.

American Version of Torchwood in Development?

American TV network Fox is developing a new version Torchwood for the U.S. The project is from BBC Worldwide Prods, with original series creator Russell T. Davies writing the script, along with an original producing team, including former Doctor Who executive producers Julie Gardener and Jane Tarnter, a BBC Worldwide Prods production vet in the US. 

Some of the current cast - most likely John Barrowman, who plays Captain Jack Harkness, might star if Fox orders Torchwood to pilot. As for the new show's plot, the U.S. version will contain a global story line compared to the more localized sensibility of the first two BBC series versions. 

Torchwood is to return in the UK with a new 10-part series sometime in the future. Further details will be posted soon. In other news: Filming for the fourth series of The Sarah Jane Adventures will start in March - the series is set for broadcast this Autumn on CBBC.
