In 2025, Doctor Who Will Merge With Its Own Video GameS

Screw this American seven-years-and-out model. The BBC's new Doctor Who series can run for another 20-plus years, just like the original version, says producer Russell T. Davies. The key is taking an occasional pause, like in 2009, when the show will only have three one-hour specials. Also, it wouldn't hurt to bring in fresh writers — and has Davies heard that Stephen Hall, author of the Clarke-nominated memory-eating psychic shark novel Raw Shark Texts, is foaming at the mouth to write for the show? Meanwhile, the new show has earned the ultimate badge of success: a new PC game, in development from EIDOS.
