LONDON -- The BBC is set to make a new series from the worldwide cult science fiction show "Doctor Who." The title role is yet to be cast.

BBC1 controller Lorraine Heggessey said Friday that a rights issue over the circle had been resolved and that she has greenlighted scripts from Russell T. Davies, whose credits include "Queer as Folk" and "Bob and Rose."

"It is far too early in the day to discuss possible story lines, characters, villains or who might play the Time Lord--it is unlikely anything will be on the screen for at least two years," Heggessey said in a statement. No decisions have been made regarding budget or the number of episodes, she said, but it will be a family show.

The new series will be produced by BBC Wales, with the BBC continuing series controller Mal Young, BBC Wales head of drama Julie Gardner and Davies acting as executive producers.

"Doctor Who," featuring a time traveling physician, has been reincarnated several times since it first appeared on BBC television in 1963.
