A new Doctor Who series will be on the BBC in 2005.

The new series will be fun, exciting, contemporary and scary. Although I’m 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.

Hopefully I don’t need to tell you how very excited I am.

I missed the last couple Doctors, most of Colin Baker and all of Sylvester McCoy. They were broadcast locally at a point when I did not have a television. So here’s hoping that it won’t be much past 2005 before we see the new series locally.
