[edit]

It's taken the UK by storm and now Doctor Who will be screened in America. The first series of the cult programme, penned by Welsh scriptwriter Russell T Davies and produced by BBC Wales, is to be screened by the American Sci Fi Channel.

It means fans across the Atlantic will be able to see the episodes starring Christopher Eccleston as the Timelord and Billie Piper as his assistant Rose in their time-travelling Tardis.

The episodes, broadcast in the UK last year, were seen by up to 10m people.

The screening deal has been confirmed by the US channel and BBC Worldwide Americas.

Welcoming the deal, Sci Fi Channel's Thomas P Vitale said Doctor Who was a 'true sci-fi classic'.

The Sci Fi Channel has been granted the first-run rights for the series of Doctor Who. The channel also has an option on the second series, in which David Tennant takes over as the Doctor. That series will be screened by the BBC later this year.

Mr Vitale said, 'With its rich history of imaginative storytelling, Doctor Who is a true sci-fi classic. We're excited to add the show to our line up.'

Candace Carlisle, from BBC Worldwide Americas, said, 'The new production has fantastic storylines and production values and has already gained an iconic status around the world.

'Sci Fi Channel is the perfect home for the show and will introduce Doctor Who to a whole new generation of fans in the US.'
