Dr Who taking 2009 off?

Series 4 is filming, and set to air in the UK in early 2008 (not counting this year's Christmas special)... and the US will probably get it in the sam general early-mid-summer timeframe.
So no big delay from the UK to US airings really... but skipping 2 years is an interesting choice. Seems like they could lose fanbase in that long of a hiatus. Not the diehards like myself mind you... but the casual viewer who was just discovering Who, will probably fade back into the woodwork again and have to be lured all over again after 2 years.

We are actually only a few months behind here in the USA. The UK showing of Series 3 completed around April or May of this year (not sure exactly when mind you)... and we are now about half-way through Series 3 on SciFi in the US.
The last episode of season 2 was shown on June 30th, to be exact.

I gather there will still be a Christmas 2008 episode, then the 3-4 specials. If those are 90 minute specials, then it could be the equivalent of as many as 8 episodes normal length... which is just a little over half of a season (13 episodes) for them... so that's not so bad if we get to see them here in the US in a semi-timely fashion.
At first glance I thought they were taking the whole time off with nothing in between... but this isn't as bad.
