'Doctor Who' Coming Back

Recommended Posts

LONDON - The Time Lord and his Tardis are coming back.


A new series of the cult sci-fi TV series "Doctor Who" is in the works and will be on the screen within two years, the British Broadcasting Corp. said Friday.


Details of who will play Doctor Who, the dashing Time Lord who uses a blue phone box-style device called the Tardis to travel through time, are a secret.


"Doctor Who is one of the BBC's most exciting and original characters. He's had a rest and now it's time to bring him back," said Russell T. Davies, writer of the new series who is also responsible for hit TV dramas such as Channel 4's "Queer as Folk."


"I grew up watching Doctor Who and hiding behind the sofa like so many others. The new series will be fun, exciting, contemporary and scary.


"Although only in the early stages of development I'm aiming to write a full-blooded drama which embraces the Doctor Who heritage at the same time as introducing the character to a modern audience."


One of the world's longest running science-fiction series, "Doctor Who" was screened in Britain from 1963 to 1989 with several actors playing the role, including William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee (news) and Tom Baker (news). The series sold around the world.
