: Interesting to see "...and will stay in the show for three
: series – or at least five years. "

I suspect that any actor given the role now and in the future would have to commit and be contracted for at least 3-4 years, which is probably why Ejiofor and Joseph said 'no'.

: I wonder if that means they will look at spinning out
: three series over a five year period or if they will do
: three series and then have a 'gap year' like they are
: doing at the moment.

That seems to be the plan. Depends on whether the bubble doesn't burst before then... Though I'd like to see DW still going for its 50th anniversary in 2013.
