This week if you snooze you lose.  No sooner had Rose debuted to boffo ratings that WHO fans got a double-whammy Wednesday, first that the series had been given a go-ahead for a second series with Xmas special but also that Eccleston would not be returning.

Chris we hardly knew ye!  As this is still developing it would be pointless to speculate further other than to say that having watched last week we have that sinking feeling that as the new series progresses we will be more keenly feeling this loss.
