Article roundup 16th-20th May 2011

This week's news has been dominated by Torchwood, with items on a web-based tie-in, Web of Lies, further cast announcements, a preview screening in the UK (which sold out within a couple of hours!), and plans to sell to Latin America. If that wasn't enough, the show's principal star John Barrowman is to receive an honorary degree! Not to be outdone, Doctor Who receives an official Twitter feed, plus the show is up for several nominations in the TV Choice Awards - don't forget Matt Smith is also up for Leading Actor in Sunday's BAFTA TV Awards. A record was also broken with The Impossible Astronaut becoming the most watched show on timeshift in the UK (for now...).

Not to mention plenty of media coverage on last week's The Doctor's Wife and this week's The Rebel Flesh!
