Aliens Vs. Wizards
Hey, remember Russell T. Davies? Of course you do. He put Doctor Who back on the map in 2005, spun off Torchwood in 2006, and started up The Sarah Jane Adventures in 2007. And we certainly wouldn't forget about him just because there's a new team on Doctor Who doing awesome things four a couple of years... Right. Glad we got that out of the way up front. The last we heard of Russell T. Davies' newest show, Wizards vs. Aliens, it was undergoing a fundamental name change due to the request of various lawyers.

hold on to your buttsRussell T. Davies, former Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Adventures showrunner, has signed on with BBC's kids channel, CBBC, to create a 12-episode series called Aliens Vs. Wizards. It is being described as "Doctor Who meets Harry Potter," and so it is guaranteed instant success, at least in England, and for the very niche, geeky group of Americans who are suckers for that stuff, present company included. The good news is that Davies is not the only member of the Doctor Who creative universe to be a part of this: lots of Doctor Who and Sarah Jane Adventures alumni are along for the ride!
