By the end of this entry you'll know what to expect when Doctor Who returns in March, be up to date on all things Mad Men and Mad Dogs, and be prepared for the returns of some of your other favourite shows...
Doctor Who's back soon right? Got any scoop?
Yep! The Beeb has confirmed (as many of us suspected) that Who will return to our screens on Easter Saturday - that's Saturday, March 30, 2013. The first ep back is penned by the sci-fi drama's supreme commander Steven Moffat and will be directed by Colm McCarthy - who recently helmed a couple of episodes of BBC One's period hit Ripper Street.
Veteran actress Celia Imrie - who you may have glimpsed in the show's 2013 trail - will play a guest role in the mid-series premiere, which the Moff has described as a "modern urban thriller" - sounds good to us!
Any idea when Being Human will be back? Can't wait for series five.
Nor us - and if your excitement levels haven't quite yet reached fever pitch, check out our Week in Geek blog from a couple of weeks back on just why the imminent return of Hal (Damien Molony), Tom (Michael Socha) and Alex (Kate Bracken) is so damn thrilling!
We'll be back in Barry early next month, as BBC Three have just confirmed that the fifth series - which introduces Whitechapel's Phil Davis as the menacing Captain Hatch - will launch on Sunday, February 3 at 10pm.
Oh, and if you need a quick refresher course, the final two episodes of series four are being repeated on BBC Three this Sunday - though at the matchsticks-in-your-eyes time slot of 2.45am, so stock up on the coffee!
What's going on with the new series of Mad Men?
It'd been relatively quiet on the Mad Men front once the internet got over the sight of Don Draper (Jon Hamm) in beachwear, but that all changed yesterday when the show's US broadcaster AMC announced that season six - which will follow all the major players at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce in a late '60s setting - will premiere on April 7.
Last season, Sky Atlantic showed new episodes of Mad Men a mere two days after they aired in America and while the show's UK home is yet to officially confirm a premiere date of its own, we have it on good authority that the most stylish show on telly will also return to these shores in April, with an exact date to be announced soon.
When will season five of Castle be back on here?
After how Castle season four ended, we don't blame you for getting a little fidgety about when Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic will be back as everyone's favourite book-writing, crime-solving duo. Unfortunately, when we spoke to Alibi they couldn't give any confirmation of the show's future, so we guess you'll have to play out the aftermath of the finale's juicy twist in your head for now (but please, keep it relatively clean).
We also had a second Castle question submitted for the Q&A this week asking about the status of the show on Channel 5, where only two seasons have aired so far. Again, it's not exactly great news - season three won't air until next year. Oh UK broadcasters, why are you being so mean to Castle? Didn't you see Nathan in Firefly? He's a God!
Any news on when New Girl might be back?
Hey giiirl, whatcha doin'? Stalling, apparently. We're still not entirely sure why the Zooey Deschanel comedy didn't come back this month along with other similar Channel 4 properties like How I Met Your Mother and The New Normal, but at least it won't be long until Jess, Schmidt, Nick and Winston are back on our screens.
Our lovely contacts have told us that the air date for New Girl season two is "looking like mid-March on 4". Take note that they said 4, not E4, suggesting that the show could move back to its original home of Channel 4... even though it flopped crazy bad over there and got pulled from the schedules for far too long. But hey, everything's TBC, and to be honest that could just be a typing error on their part, so we'll refrain from making a judgemental Nick face for now.
Any news on when Sons of Anarchy will be back on Channel 5?
Jax and the rest of SAMCRO will ride back onto your telly box on February 6, reclaiming their regular slot on Wednesdays at 10pm on 5USA. And the fifth season of Sons is the most blistering and brutal yet - there are tough times ahead for Tig (Kim Coates), a difficult decision lies in wait for Opie (Ryan Hurst) and former Lost star Harold Perrineau makes his debut as the ruthless Damon Pope...
And there's more good news for Sons addicts - the SAMCRO boys will be riding through this world all alone for a while longer yet, with FX confirming a sixth season and hinting strongly at a possible seventh back in February last year. Oh, and if series creator Kurt Sutter gets his way, there might even be a Sons prequel coming your way too!
When will Mad Dogs be back?
Woody (Max Beesley), Quinn (Philip Glenister), Baxter (John Simm) and Rick (Marc Warren) find themselves in more trouble than ever in the four-part third series of Mad Dogs, which sees the foursome locked up in a dilapidated prison in the middle of the desert. Jaime Winstone also stars as feisty fellow prisoner Mercedes - but can she be trusted?
As for a premiere date, well, Mad Dogs was originally being eyed for a January return, but we've now learnt that the show's long-awaited comeback will take place in April - so a few more months to wait yet!
It may also interest you to know that a US remake of Mad Dogs is currently in the works, but unlike so many transatlantic misfires, this Yank revamp has original series creator Cris Cole on board. The Shield's Shawn Ryan is also attached, so there's every chance that Mad Dogs US could turn out very well indeed.
