Eve Myles (Gwen Cooper), along with director Euros Lyn spoke with SCI FI Wire about the upcoming third series of Torchwood, and how the deaths of characters Owen and Tosh will affect the show.

The Cartoon Network announced today that Star Wars: The Clone Wars will have a second season starting in the Fall. The show has been a “blockbuster” for the network so far, and is allowing the network to build around it.

The new book, “And Another Thing…” will be written by Eoin Colfer (of Artemis Fowl) and is slated to release worldwide on the 30th anniversary of the publication of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which is October 2009. The book will bring back all of Adams’ characters (Arthur, Ford, Trillian, and Zapod), and may, or may not pick up where Mostly Harmless left off. There’s a forum set up to talk about the book at www.dontpanicforum.com“ This was announced a while back, but it sounds like the release is more concrete to coincide with the anniversary.
