Happy New Year to all the Tardis Base readers! The year 2011 will be quite a big one, not just for Doctor Who, but for Torchwood too, as The New World will makes its way to our screens this year, after being off screen for two years! Doctor Who will be a bit different this year too, as we already know, the new series will be split in two, the first half being shown in Spring, and the second half being shown in Autumn, with Torchwood scheduled for a Summer showing during the Doctor Who break.

In Doctor Who this year we will see the Tardis crew go to America, there will be new aliens, plus we will find out who River Song really is, and unanswered questions will be answered, like who or what is the Silence? Rumour has it we will see actor Marnix Van Den Broeke, who is 6'8" tall, play a character called The Silent in the new series…

Plus a brand new series of The Sarah Jane Adventures will be hitting screens, another set of Adventure Games will be out, and maybe some surprises…


In other news the official Torchwood Facebook page has revealed a new synopsis for The New World, check it out below!

The new ten-part series of the Doctor Who spinoff will see the return of regular Torchwood characters Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and Gwen Cooper (Eve Myles).

Gwen will be shown living peacefully in Wales with husband Rhys (Kai Owen) and new baby Anwen when she encounters a "new, epic danger" that will "push [her] to the limit".

Having left Earth at the conclusion of previous miniseries Children of Earth, Harkness will be drawn back to the Torchwood institute by "his unstated love for Gwen".
