BBC managing director, Mr Bill Cotton, has promised millions of Dr Who fans that their television time traveller will be back on screen next year.

In an unprecedented move, Mr Cotton telephoned Mr David Saunders, co-ordinator of the Dr Who Appreciation Socety, and told him the programme will be back in autumn 1986.

The assurance follows the BBC's decision to spend £500,000 on a new American mini-series after saying it could not currently afford the £200,000 a programme cost of Dr Who.

The mini-series, Kane and Abel, which the BBC has not seen, is being made by Embassy Films, the American company once headed by Mr Michael Grade, now controller of BBC1.
