'Doctor Who', 'Big Bang Theory', 'Once Upon a Time': Tube Talk Q&A

By and Daniel Sperling
You know the score with the Tube Talk Q&A by now - and if you don't, where have you been, you big numpty? We're here to deliver you heaps of telly teasers and news on when your favourite US series are coming to this particular region of the world...

Read on for scoop on Doctor Who, The Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time and more - and if you've got any more TV-related queries, be sure to post them down below!

Please tell me that the rumours about David Tennant coming back to Doctor Who are true!

We can neither confirm or deny whether Tenth Doctor actor Tennant - currently doing some serious beardy brooding on ITV's Broadchurch - will be back for Doctor Who's 50th... mainly because we don't know. And if we did know, we wouldn't tell. So maybe we do know. I mean, we don't, honest... but what if we did?

But if you're looking for more Tennant once Broadchurch wraps, rest assured that he won't be off your screens for long - in the coming months, the Scots actor will be seen in BBC Two's three-part drama The Politician's Husband opposite Emily Watson and has also just finished filming another Beeb thriller The Escape Artist - penned by Spooks creator David Wolstencroft.

Why has E4 stopped showing new episodes of The Big Bang Theory?

One of the downsides of showing a hit series so close to US transmission is that E4 is subject to the whims of CBS - The Big Bang Theory's US broadcaster is prone to taking breaks mid-season for sporting events, political rallies or the dropping of a hat.

So the last new season six episode aired over here on January 24, with E4 then taking a break so as not to catch up with the US. But we've been assured that Sheldon, Leonard and pals will be back from Thursday, April 11 at 8pm with ep 6.11 - that's festive instalment 'The Santa Simulation' - so cool your jets.

I am still missing Being Human - any chance it could come back?

'Being Human' creator Toby Whithouse



Erm... not really, no. Being Human - as much as we loved it - is gone for good, though we'd recommend tuning into the show's time-slot replacement In The Flesh on Sundays at 10pm - it's tonally similar enough to its predecessor to stave off the grieving just a little...

Oh, and it's also worth pointing out that Being Human creator Toby Whithouse - and several members of his old writing team - are now working on a new series for BBC One. Six-part spy thriller The Game is set in the world of 1970s Cold War espionage.

The Game is expected to air in early 2014 - the show enters pre-production in April, with filming set for late July - so look for casting announcements in the coming months. Is Damien Molony as a suave '70s spy too much to ask for?

I love The Paradise! Is it coming back?

Yeah, do one Mr Selfridge! The BBC were first out of the trap with their department store period drama, and therefore The Paradise will always have a special place in our hearts, no matter how many shots ITV throws at us of Jeremy Piven being charmingly exuberant.

A second series of The Paradise, which stars Emun Elliot, Joanna Vanderham, Elaine Cassidy and Sarah Lancashire, was commissioned back in October, and the Beeb confirmed on Twitter t'other day that the show will be back on screens later this year.

Any news on the second season of Once Upon a Time?

Oh yes, we have news. The fantasy drama about a bunch of fairytale characters trapped in the real world will return to Channel 5 for its second season on Sunday, April 7 at 9pm.

And like Robert Carlyle's scaly, razor-toothed Rumplestiltskin, we're going to play mind games with you by revealing some tiny, mouth-watering teasers from our upcoming interview with Josh Dallas, aka Prince Charming.

Asked what that mysterious purple smog in the season one finale means for the characters, he revealed: "We have everyone in Storybrooke remembering who they are, and that's going to be a huge game changer.

"A lot of people in the town are going to have a lot of questions, [like] if the curse was broken why are we still here, and is this the place that we should still be?" We need answers...NOW!
