1x10 A Death in the Family [season finale]
Channel 5 aren't going straight on into season two, sadly. Original UK broadcaster Alibi are being rather cunning though: they're repeating the second season in the same slot 5 had been showing the first (Fridays at 9), starting this Friday. Very sneaky-clever of them. I don't get Alibi though, so it'll be a wait (or download) for me.
[Watch it (again) on Demand 5.]

Doctor Who
32x07a Prequel to Let's Kill Hitler
With the sixth/thirty-second series returning to our screens in a fortnight (probably), the BBC have released this under-two-minutes prequel to the mid-season opener. Like the three others it's something and nothing, but hey-ho.
There was also a screening of the episode at the BFI today, so expect the web/papers to be flooded with spoilers over the next two weeks.
[Watch it on the BBC Doctor Who website.]


Torchwood: First Born by James Goss
Pages 167-210
Everything has taken A Turn For The Worse. Inevitable, really, but welcome -- bit of action 'n' all that. Past three-quarters now too (p.189), so this is the home straight.
