From BBC News:
The much-awaited comeback will be written by acclaimed TV dramatist Russell T Davies – a self-confessed fan.
Davies’ credits include hit dramas like Bob and Rose, Queer as Folk, The Second Coming, Touching Evil, and The Grand.
Let’s hope the new Dr. Who doesn’t suck.
Star Wars is adolescent nonsense; Close Encounters is obscurantist drivel; Star Trek can turn your brains to puree of bat guano; and the greatest science fiction series of all time is Doctor Who! And I’ll take you all on, one-by-one or all in a bunch to back it up!
— Harlan Ellison
