A possible revival of Doctor Who.

If this news article over at Orange Today turns out to be true then fans of Doctor Who, such as myself, will be majorly geeked.

The BBC has hired one of the scriptwriters from Buffy The Vampire Slayer to work on a new version of Doctor Who.

David Fury will work as an adviser on a new series of the classic sci-fi show.

It’s thought Buffy star Anthony Stewart Head, who plays Giles, is in the running to play the latest version of the Doctor.

According to the Daily Express, the BBC is planning a new series of Doctor Who to be shown next year, to celebrate the show’s 40th anniversary.

Fury said: “They want to do what we do on Buffy, produce 22 episodes a year and sell them internationally.

“I’m helping to take Doctor Who into a new universe.”

As much as I disliked the many changes that were made when FOX did their DW tele-movie a few years ago (currently in repeats on the Sci-Fi channel), I really had hoped it would be good enough to catch the public’s interest and lead to a new American series. Alas it was not to be. There have been rumors of a revival for years now, so I’m not holding my breath, but I am interested in seeing what they manage to put together.
